Logitech G940 HOTAS system

 

Just announced at E3.

3588107104_a08e5a79f6.jpg

Here's a movie presentation:

http://blog.logitech.com/2009/06/02/e3-product-announcement-logitech-flight-system-g940/

 

And some details:

http://www.crunchgear.com/2009/06/02/the-logitech-flight-system-g940-large-and-in-charge/

 

To sum up:

- expensive

- force feedback

- dual throttle

 

While I prefer Saitek over Logitech (those cheap Logitechs are very ergonomic, but not so reliable) this one looks veeery interesting.

Looks neat

I wonder if they mean USD on xataka.com? That's $300 american...

Looks nice, gotta wait till my X52 Pro dies a natural death though. Lots of time for other people to test it for me first... :joystick:

I like it, it looks kinda like the F-15C, F/A-18, A-10 throttle which I like and I dreamed of Suncomm F-15 HOTAS back in the day.

 

What I don't like is the Logitech brand, I'm not saying their products are of bad quality but I had G15 for over a year, and it had a 12 months warranty but G15 malfunctioned as soon as it expired, microswitches under some keys stopped working. I was told i cannot be replaced or fixed so having a 100€ keyboard for 13 months is a bit expensive...I hope things are better with this HOTAS!

Looks interesting, now if only it came with a joystick extension and an adapter to turn the throttle into a collective control :music_whistling:

Mine died last week, it was the original version (not the refresh) and it worked for three years but I regreted buying it much earlier because the coating of the keys began to vanish after a few month, making them unrecognizable and ugly. Two weeks ago it started to go nuts and specific keys (like the space bar) stopped working sporadically. Not at all the kind of quality I expected when I bought it.

The deul throttle is great... I wounder what Saitek will do now Logitech have that???

The only way to make sense out of change is to plunge into it, move with it, and join the dance.

The dual throttle is cool; a good bit of product differentiation there since no one currently makes one. And it's actually useful and realistic too since most DCS jets will have two engines. Also, they beat Saitek to the market for a FFB HOTAS. Also a good idea: pedals come with it. I've always wondered why Saitek didn't do this.

 

Expensive? I don't think so. You can find a CH stick, throttle, and peddles all for about $100 each if you know where to look. A Cougar plus pedals will be at least that much, maybe a bit more. This thing comes with it all together. I also dig the F-15ish look to it. What does every HOTAS manufacturer have such a hard-on for the F-16? :P I hope that its totally pot-less too. I love CH, but I really wish they'd ditch potentiometers for something digital. Even Saitek won't completely get rid of them and still have to put them in the throttle.

 

The only thing that turns me off is the fact that it is logitech. I have a logitech gaming mouse, but I won't own much beyond that. I've never liked the cheap plastic look of their hardware. I like sturdy stuff. I bought one of these: http://pckeyboards.stores.yahoo.net/keyboards.html over a G15 just because I could see the thing lasting about a year or two before dying.

 

My only question is why now? Do they sense that flight sims are making a comeback? No buyers in this household, but still nice to see some competition! :)

Yes, just discovered this one a few minutes ago on a hardware site. I have to say it does look nice, although not as much as the cougar, and it will cost more or less the same price. But this new logitech hotas have forcefeedback that the cougar doesn't have AND I am a big fan of logitech products. I love also the fact that they though about having mounting holes for pit builders. I can see this one in my BS cockpit. The rudder is also pretty good looking but might be a bit too narrow for my taste.
