Worth it

  • By A Customer from Reading MA USA on Thursday, October 22, 2020
  • Pros: Solid. Accurate. Responsive.
  • Cons: Price. But as the saying goes, “You get what you pay for"
  • Review: Switched from a Logitech yoke, that I used for almost 10 years, to this and so glad I did. My landings in MFS are so much better. I’ve never handled a real flight stick but I would imagine that this is as close as it gets. Precise response and all around solid feel from the base to the buttons and switches. If you can afford it, get it.

Excellent Quality!! The Replica Style Increases Immersion In MilSims!

  • By Anthony from Goodrich TX USA on Tuesday, October 06, 2020
  • Pros: Replica of A10 and F16/High quality construction and
  • Cons: Possible need to perform minor maintenance on gimbal after hours of use (not yet in my experience)
  • Review: The Warthog stick has a nice heavy pull to it. It isn't too heavy as a standalone, or too light to add an extension. It's metal construction exudes quality, in spite of the plastic gimbal construction. VKB and Virpil have other High end options, albeit at a marked premium over the Warthog. One advantage the Warthog has over it's counterparts is the replica style. It offers one to one replica of the A10 and F16 stick (With the exception of the real F16 having extremely small range of motion, where as the TM replica does not. The base reportedly can require lubrication to the gimbal after many hours of use, which requires some minor disassembly to perform. All in all its a great product and I am extremely satisfied with my purchase.

Fast shipping, item met expectations

  • By Aroman lee Fogel on Monday, October 12, 2020
  • Pros: very sturdy, flightstick is detachable and works with other bases
  • Cons: base sticks occationally
  • Review: Very robust feeling Flight stick, love the mostly metal construction feels like it will last quite a long time, had some issues with the base sticking sometimes but with use it will free it up. Have seen many reviews saying the weak link is the base although many reviewers have had their previous versions for over 10 years with minimal deadzone gain the up side to all of it is the flight stick works with a Virpil base that is supremely rugged and has adjustable cams to give it progressive tension as you move it around giving it a much more true to prototype feel (unless you fly F-16 in which case ive yet to find one that simulates the 3/4" pressure based movement)
