5 out of 5 eggsFly to new heights!

Pros: Every thing they said it was. The feel is outstanding, HEAVY, Not for the faint of heart at their price. This is an awesome set up! Very accurate, It is right on the money with reaction. When you let go it is centered there is now wobbling around it stays at zero point. Not sure thats the right vocabulary but you get my point. I LOVE IT!! The lighting just adds to an already outstanding product. If only they made everything this way. I'm sure this thing will last for YEARS!!!!

Cons: Throttle handle is plastic, Drivers are outdated from 2011, No FAQ on their site just help files for installation. win 8.1 user beware. They have replied promptly with help only to direct me to Windows problems solving. They really need to do updates on their drivers. Needs more info for this I spent 8 hours so far trying to get it to work right. Works with win generic drivers from 2006 though. Not many profile maps so you have to create your own. Newegg would not match others price.

Other Thoughts: I first saw this on here at the price of 596. Saw it at Wally world for 419. After I called on it they lowered it to 499. But for what I spent on it this is the greatest thing since breaking the 640 mg ram barrier! Despite all the agravation of installing it, I will not give it up for nothing. Nothing even compares! Of course I bought it at Wally World. So much for price matching.

5 out of 5 eggsGold Standard in Combat Flight Simming

Pros: Thrustmaster Warthog hands on throttle and stick (HOTAS) is the finest throttle and flight stick controller you can currently buy on the consumer market. It is the gold standard in combat flight simulation. The flight stick alone, the quality of it is worth the entire price of the system.

Cons: Plasticy parts on the throttle, not what i would expect for a very expensive controller. Having owned the TM Cougar, this was the biggest disappointment was the amount plastic on the throttle.

Other Thoughts: In order to calibrate the joystick and throttle manually you'll need to get a utility from TM that isn't linked directly on their site.

5 out of 5 eggsWarthog HOTAS

Pros: Finest joystick you will ever use. Feels like the real thing. Movement is stiffer than a plastic joystick, but more realistic. Heavy, sturdy, well-made. Plenty of switches on both stick & throttle (quality ones, not cheap ones). Very smooth reaction times in flight sim programs.

Cons: Throttle rear detent for engine cutoff is a bit stiff (pulling throttle levers up & back from rearmost position), but this may be by design. No other issues.

Other Thoughts: This is the real deal. Use it & you will never want to go back to a plastic joystick again. This was meant to last.

5 out of 5 eggswow, just wow

Pros: Durability, smooth actions, switch construction, software.

Cons: price...slightly

Other Thoughts: You really get what you pay for, this bad boy blows every saitek out of the water. The devices are sturdy, the switches are very well made, and the action on both the main stick and the throttle is as smooth as butter. The switches in particular are impressive, I spent 8 years in aviation in both the army and in the civilian sector and they are as sturdy as you will find inside a cockpit. The only downside to the stick is the resistance on the afterburner catch. if you flip the stopper around to add in that resistance you literally have to lift the throttles to get them past the detent. Even at 13 pounds on the throttle, the main body will still lift off the surface you have it sitting on. If you plan on using the ab detent, screw this bad boy to your desk or something

5 out of 5 eggsTHE Flight control system to buy!

Pros: Sturdy, Stable, made from quality material, adds to the "Immersion level" of the flight sim, or combat flight sim of your choice. fully adaptable and programable to suit your play style and preferances. Backlight switch lables in "NVG" (Night vision Goggles) green (Backlight intensity user configurable).

Cons: A bit of a steep learning curve starting out, doesn't come with many pre-set profiles (although they are easily found on the internet) I guess the price point puts this out of reach for some, But, save! Scrimp! Scrounge! Make a sandwich at home instead of dropping by the drive through a couple times a week. It all adds up, and you'll get there, and I promise you, it's worth the effort, scarifice and monitery restraint.

Other Thoughts: As you know, this based on the A-10 "Warthog", and there is a very good, and quite well known combat flight simulator based on this aircraft. For me it's neat to press a button, or flip a switch that's labled with it's functionality, and to see that translated on screennjust the way you would in the REAL thing is reaally cool.

5 out of 5 eggsWorth the money

Pros: Simply the closet you can get without enlisting. Fully mechanical switches that are a pleasure to use. Perfect precision in DCS sims and great for FSX. If you have the money and are a serious simmer you must treat yourself to this! Very high build quality , it will last forever.

Cons: Very pricey to the level of decadence.

5 out of 5 eggsThrustmaster HOTAS

Pros: SOLID SOLID SOLID !!!! Great and solid build! Haven't seen anything else that would be even close to the quality of this product. Heavy, solid metal parts (not a plastic cheap look and feel), large platform that could be mounted to the surface. Easy software download and install. The trhottle control is simply awesome! I never regreted I purchesed this product in spite of the high price.

Cons: Price, maybe...Buttons on the joystick could also be metal-made (not really a cons).

Other Thoughts: Although, I do not use it for DCS A-10 game, it works great in FSX (Flight Simulator X) and I love it!

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolute Realism

Pros: Where to begin?
-All metal housing and bat switches
-Plug and play
-Seemless integration with DCS A10 Warthog.
-Heavy solid construction prevents the HOTAS from sliding around even on my glass desk.
-Replica of the A-10 warthog flight
stick and throttle quadrant.
-A multitude of buttons, switches and hats that would ever need for a flight sim.

Cons: Price is a bit much. That being said, i would never go back to another HOTAS.

Very specialized design to the a10. However, there are an abundance of switches and hats because of it.

The target software can sometimes be problematic to some users.

Other Thoughts: This HOTAS is perfect if you had ever planned on building your own sim pit.

When this HOTAS is used in conjunction with DCS A10, it really adds to the realism and it leaves you begging for more.

This HOTAS will take your simming to the next level and beyond.

5 out of 5 eggsFantastic

Pros: This throttle and stick combo are the best I have every owned. I have gone through several Hotas and Thrustmaster combo's in the past. This is one is in a league of it's own. The detail and feel of the stick are outstanding! I use this setup with DCS: A-10, TrackIR 5, and 3 24' monitors. It is such an experience and really give the "Simulator" the title it deserves.

Cons: I honestly don't have many other than the price. But the price is absolutely justified once you use it in DCS.

Other Thoughts: This setup is not for arcade style games or casual flight sim users. Not really a con but a heads up to someone who wants to buy it for those reasons. You would be wasting money on setup you prob won't use 100%. Not to say you shouldn't but it just seems like a waste.
