Overhyped

Pros: Hall sensor, copy of the A-10 controls, feels sturdy

Cons: The reviews of this setup are very overhyped. Every reviewer is blown away by the fact that the exterior is made of metal and calls it the end-all or something like that. But the fact is the gymbal in the stick base is plastic, so it inevitably falls prey to a “stiction” feel where movement is jumpy, no matter what you grease it with, and you will need to grease it which is not a simple process. All of the buttons are very cheap and wired as cheaply as possible in a way that makes them very prone to breaking (don’t take my word on it, look it up). My boat switch (three position on the throttle) started failing within a year but I didn’t finish my warranty request within that first year because they wanted an absurd amount of things (a video showing me clicking the button and it not working in the control panel, for one) so I didn’t finish it for a few months as I was quite busy at the time. By then the warranty was expired and they wouldn’t give me any credit for starting the process during the warranty period and they want $72 to ship a replacement button to me.

Other Thoughts: If you really want superb quality you need to go with Virpil, as much as it pains me to say.

It may not show me as a verified owner since there are several “versions” being sold on Newegg, but I did buy this exact same one on Newegg.

The Flagship joystick for a reason

Pros: -Feels solid
-Real metal switches
-Heavy
-More buttons than you can find a use for
-Able to separate throttles

Cons: -Heavy
-Expensive, but you get what you pay for.

Other Thoughts: After having bought many cheaper joysticks in the past, when I rebuilt my rig, I knew that a Thrustmaster HOTAS was in my future.
I purchased the throttle, joystick and rudder combo and have not been disappointed. A word of advice, definitely get a splitter for the USBs. The price I spent on this was well worth it, just to flip a real metal switch and hear the engines whine as they spool up. It just makes you feel like a real fighter pilot.

Awesome Buy

Pros: -Build quality is un matched
-Keybindings already assigned for DCS:A-10C

Cons: -Heavy (but honestly not really a con)
-software is beginning to get outdated and can be tricky to manipulate

Other Thoughts: I've now owned it for 2 years and still have not had any issues. If you plan on playing DCS or high fidelity flight simulation, this stick is un matched. One awesome pro is that all of the keybinding are already assigned when flying the A-10C which saved me about 30mins of headache.

Great stick but throttle has issues

Pros: The stick is fantastic and is very accurate. So accurate in fact I have to set deadzones in some games because the stick is so dang sensitive which is a plus. The throttle overall is a nice base with very secure feeling switches and buttons

Cons: The throttle is very 'jiggly'. It has a lot of play in the throttle and frankly feels like cheap plastic. I sent a request to Thrust master to see if this issue can be fixed and they haven't replied 2 months later. Its honestly really annoying when in a game and throttling up or down and hearing a plastic scrapping noise.

Other Thoughts: I recommend you purchase a Virpil Throttle with a Thrustmaster Warthog STICK ONLY. Until this throttle feels like the price I paid I cannot recommend it

Top quality paper weight

Pros: -Vary good quality
-Buttons/Switches feel like the real thing

Cons: -Set-up is a BEAR!
-Be ready to spend a TON OF TIME getting these to work right.

Other Thoughts: TBH I've given up on getting these to work the way I thought they would... it just takes WAY TOO MUCH TIME to make that happen. For the price of these I'm little surprised with the lack of user friendly software.

I just set up basic axis in the games I play, but literally NONE of the switches work the way I want them too. And I basically need a programmers level of education to work with the provided software. Pre-made profiles never seem to work correctly. No way to get flying easily.

For some tittles its easier just to go back to the Logitech.

Seems to be made of poor quality parts.

Pros: Looks good, lots of switches (cheap switches)

Cons: Returned for replacement the new one right out of the box for defective switch. Now new one is acting up. Started tilting (rolling) to left for no reason. Only used it a few dozen times. No abuse. I am thinking I got into a piece of junk from what others are saying also, not happy. Buyer beware.

Other Thoughts: Hopefully if enough people complain, they might use better parts. Switches are poor quality and now pitch and roll are not staying stable. This stick is only 5 weeks old.

Perfection

Pros: Whether you are playing DCS with the A-10c or you are flying the a320 in XP 11 this will work perfectly. All the buttons are mappable and are exact to the A10 a solid metal construction will make this thing last longer then you will. I have had it since 2013 and several moves dismantling and moving to new houses over the five years I have had it I have seen no dip in quality.

Cons: Very heavy, but that’s what you get with all metal construction, The yoke has a decently large flat spot on the top which can be somewhat difficult to do precise movements with the ailerons, also the base of the yoke is decently large so you may need to clear up extra space or put on a side table/desk.

Other Thoughts: It’s good and worth the price, however it you find it on sale buy it.
