Up Close - Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS Throttle

The throttle part of the HOTAS arrangement is built from exceptionally high quality components. The switches are about as perfect as you could ever hope to find, and in fact they are so good that we wouldn't be shocked to discover they were sourced from the same people who supply the actual A10s. It weighs a ton and you definitely wont find it moving even if you're suddenly having to slam the afterburners on.

Controls are bordering on mind-boggling, with an 8-way hat, a 4-way hat, five toggle switches, three push button switches and eight 3-way toggles. That's as well as the three analogue axis available to you.

The throttle also has a very nice feature in that you have to lift them to turn them off, so you can idle the engines without finding yourself plummeting out the sky, and at the other end you have to lift them to engage the afterburners. This has the added benefit of keeping the amount of throttle available easy to gauge, even if you're flying a Cessna 162.

The little slide lever below the red button allows you to lock the two throttles together, should you so desire. Indeed the only thing missing from the package are rudder pedals, but with seven axis available to you it's easy enough to find one that will suffice.

Another great review. Shame to see the use of such a lackluster CPU, but they must have had their reasons.Quote

I almost spat my tea out over my keyboard when I saw the CPU spec, very weird choice when you combine it with the price and their target buyer, knock off a few £100 it might make sense.Quote
