Replica of the US Air Force's A-10C Joystick and Throttle. Cheapest I've seen this Hotas. A good review of this Kit:

A word of warning however... this stick doesn't have a twist Rudder. You'll need to either use Rudder Pedals, or assign rudder axis to something else.

That's very true, plastic internal parts and a bad gimbal compared to the pro level stuff.

It's important to note though that the only way you're going to get better (and all-metal internals) is by spending much more.

At 300 bucks this is a great deal. It's certainly better than the lower end cheaper models. At its normal 500 buck price though it becomes less enticing.

If you want all metal internals I recommend looking at all the custom flight stick makers out there nowadays (there are a few). Turn around time can take as much as 2-3 months to have one made and shipped, but it's typically worth it.

Prices on a base and stick from one of these makers (combined) is going to be around 400-500 bucks than another 300-500 for throttle or additional stick. So overall it could end up being nearly triple the cost of this warthog combo pack right here for 300 for everything.

Good price, these are usually around $500.00. This set is also very solid, heavy metal. Feels absolutely real. Almost too heavy, but very nice.

Unfortunately, the internal build quality is quite terrible. Numerous reports of plastic internals and/or poor wiring breaking several months in. :/

I tried it in Oshkosh. It really feels great and I am pretty sure that most flight simmers will get one and sell their Saitek.

I hope not... but I looked again when I saw this thread. Seems like the new estimate is 2Q 2020... I don't see them making that mark though.

This is a pretty good price on this HOTAS, but I seem to remember it going down as low as $250 on Amazon. Too lazy to check SD threads and it may have been a PM or warehouse deal.

Pretty good price. During BF there will sometimes be combo deals with rudder pedals for around this price, though it was usually saitek combat pedals which are now logitech stuff. Been using my warthog since... 2012 ish. No problems yet but i do keep my stuff protected when not in use.
