Recommended Posts

Not sure about the throttle or any other component, but I received this notification from Thrustmaster a couple days ago.

I have been waiting for mine to be delivered since March 10,2020. It’s like they slowed down on production due to the covid crap and I think they changed ownership. I seen amazon had 3 available today. Other then that , they been back ordered just about everywhere. It’s totally frustrating !!!!

 

Good luck. I would go elsewhere but the shipping will probably be the same to ship to US.

I think it's supply chain related, and a personnel issue too. I am going to wait and see what happens. With all the main board things I have been reading, I may just mod my CH stuff.

 

From what I can tell, all the higher end controls are also sold out.

It seems that the availability in the stick and throttle separately are always more available then the Hotas. So I ordered both of them again and whatever comes in first I’ll send the other order back. But still I’m looking at June 30 for that order. If it was my company I would be burning the mid night oil and hiring more people.

Negative. Dell orders through TM .... you'll being waiting a long time for TM to ship, especially to US. I've been waiting over 3 months and ordered from Dell. Once you order through Dell, it's out of theirs hand from there. Good Luck.

I got my Warthog in yesterday so there is hope. Hang in there. This thing is a beast too. I may have to get a bigger desktop.

Warthog is a great system though imo it should ship with an extension and a centre mount, my only issue with it has ever been how far it sits off the desk and the control through. honestly with a centre mount and a 15cm base it is perfect.
