I checked it out, by doing a very quick google search on this topic all I see are rumors over reddit posts and absolutely nothing from Thrustmaster themselves or any other source for that matter.

I cannot possibly believe this is true, imagine if USB devices could die at any moment!

Currently I'm flying A-10, F-18, Mirage 2000, and MIG 21.


I have neglected Harrier (will pick it up again when it's a bit more complete), Ka-50 (Cockpit is just too bright now for my taste), and Viggen.


Haven't played FC3 planes in ages.


Can't wait for F-14 and MIG 23.It will be glorious.


If only someone would take on making MIG 25... ah one can only dream

I agree completely. Was suspicious myself, but no harm in checking with you guys. Thank you very much.
