cool stick and throttle but, EXPENSIVE.

I'm just curious, what do you guys think the pilot twists on the throttle halfway trough the video? Maybe locking the throttle setting?

I think that determines how much resistance is on the throttle and fuel mixture levers, but I'm not sure why he'd be twisting it at that particular time. I've seen the products on that site before, and they make me drool. However, I'm used to my X-52 with all of its HATs and buttons, so the historically accurate stuff would be a little lacking in features (I'd have to be using the keyboard all the time)

That is a fairly nice setup for Blue.
I don't have the link right now, but you should see the Spitfire controls that are being made...if you have a couple thousands dollars for this sort of thing.

Yes, I've seen that one too. The control stick looks amazing!

looks like that the safety cover on the top buttom is also the trigger.

When my kids out of college (ha!) and I've more money then Croesus, then and mebbe then. Pehaps if I hit the Lotto some other sweeps. And then only if they make something for Red.

Yeah, 840 Euros for a stick and handle does seem a bit pricey. Will they have it at Walmart?

I'm with Worf on this one. Offer me a standard RAF 'spade' grip and a USAAF style handle packaged with the stick for under 300, and we'll talk (and you still need to convince me that it's better than my CH Products stuff).

I definitely would have contimplated buying the kit if it was half that price. Buying the stick and base seperately doubling the price is a joke.

Over 3600$ for the setup you see there.....

You can buy about <span class="ev_code_YELLOW">40 real</span> WW2 rifles, at retail price for that money. and of course, a real set of controls for a real airplane.

Or you can buy a real plane and have some money left for gas and a good quality hotas:
