No kidding- with this kind of detail in newest cockpit, wouldn't it be great to have a ( modified German or Brit joystick grip to help with immersion? surely some one out there with come thru so we don't have to use 1990 jet-jockey equipment in 1940 birds..

i asked about the same thing some time ago, but it seems there is nothing you can find. Only super-expensive handmade.

Well on the thrustmaster cougar it shoulden`t
be so hard as it has detatchable grip http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

but one would lose approxably 46-48 commands http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

but it would be very cool and just more for vac to handle insted

the 190s grip is rather futuristic and not SO unlike modern jet grips so I can live whit it when flying that

It is practically impossible some joystick based on grip of airplanes of WWII to come to be produced.

The time of the release of the Cougar was mentioned the possibility of a spare grip type WWII. But...

Saitek proceeds more and more in the direction Star Wars, aka X36, X45. X52... : (

The only hope would be CH, but for this pool of the forum CH-hangar his next stick are agaim based in F15/F18... http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

I tried to obtain a replic of this one for made me "WW II Stick", but no luck. In the forum BOA-MA.org a guy mentioned to have molds, but he didn't answer to contacts.

SP!

I've always felt the finger reach is a bit much. That looks to be a very user-friendly stick.
