In a similar situation. Gradually replacing all three as all of my CH units; they are all about 20 years old…
My CH throttle has finally wore me out; it still works but I’m tired of the apparent ‘noise’ from the potentiometers. Oddly, even with the constant ‘twitching’, I can do intricate things just fine (in my mind ), like AR. I’ve replaced the ‘pots’ but it’s still there; different USB ports hasn’t helped either. So I’ve just ordered a Virpil throttle. Sounds like it should last a long time too, which is a requirement. Hopefully I can give my 2-cents on this in, oh, maybe a month. Really no idea how long it will take to get it into my paws.
I looked at most of the other players in this field but the Virpil is consistently getting good reviews.
Next up will be rudders but not yet researched this in depth. My CH rudders have always left me ‘wanting’ but they’ve always worked.
And finally I’ll look at a new stick. Something as generic as I can find (lots of ‘admin’ buttons if able). The CH Fighter stick (F16 replica) is still going strong. No issues but its days may be numbered. Most likely to be replaced by a butt-ugly Virpil stick here too. I could care less what it looks like though; I use several different aircraft; functionality and longevity is more important.
Thrustmaster stuff just didn’t do it for me, based on research. I was this “||” close to ordering the WH Throttle but having to immediately replace the TDC was an issue and the Virpil has more buttons it seems. We’ll see.
