Thrustmaster Hornet?

As ED’s next big plane is the F-18 and having a wild guess that’s its going to go as the proverbial hotcakes…

Is there even a glimmer in some designers eye for a Thrustmaster Hornet Hotas?

I would be very interested.

Speculation/desire anyone?

I haven’t heard any thing about Thrustmaster making one but there is an individual in Croatia working on it.

Initial runs will be a stick and throttle compatible with the warthog bases with later production being standalone setups. He’s posted promising work over at the ED forums and, considering he’s working with the guy that does the MFG pedals, it will be a for-sure purchase for me when he opens up orders.

I’ve been following that development as well- it’ll definitely be a day- one purchase when they become available. Now somebody really needs to start printing and marketing overlay plates for the throttle base, since I have a terrible time remember what buttons do what for each plane that I fly…

That looks gorgeous! I hope this works out.

Necro’d for prophetic emphasis.
