Game: Spot the of-the-shelf-joystick

I watch a lot of sci-fi and I play a lot of DCS - and because of my familiarity of simming hardware, when a movie uses a joystick that I have seen many, many times, it tends to stick out like a sore thumb to me :)

 

The latest one is from this trailer from Matt Damons new movie "The Martian"

It's very obviously a TM Warthog as they still have the yellow arrow sticker on the handle (which has long been worn from mine!). It can be seen when they are in the cockpit both times.

 

I can think of a few more movies where I have spotted either a TM Warthog or an X52.

 

But I would like to see if others want to play a game of "spot the joystick" and see if we can get a list going of all movies / scenes where we recognise a common of the shelf gaming / simming hardware - and extra points if you find one which has been modded and disguised.

 

Also please post either a screenshot or a clip of the movie so we can all see :)

 

:thumbup:

 

Edit: that would be right, I spelt "off" with one "f" in the title :S

Furious 7 had a Silver X52 in it. If you look in the trailer you can see the throttle for a second.

The dark knight rises (Dish Dish Balala Balala) he had a TMWH in his switchblade (or whatever). I believe also X men had a X52 Saitek.

Fat T is above, thin T is below. Long T is faster, Short T is slower. Open triangle is AWACS, closed triangle is your own sensors. Double dash is friendly, Single dash is enemy. Circle is friendly. Strobe is jammer. Strobe to dash is under 35 km. HDD is 7 times range key. Radar to 160 km, IRST to 10 km. Stay low, but never slow.

Yep the Dark Knight is a smart guy - why reinvent the wheel, when you can just use a USB device in your batmobile? :)

Wow! This practice of using off the shelf top class joystics to impress sci-fi movie fans is more common than I thought.
