The Thrusmaster HOTAS Warthog is a replica throttle produced under license with the US Air Force. With a weight of over 6.5 kg (over 14 lbs.) and the use of metal in the joystick, throttle and feet, this HOTAS-system (Hands On Throttle And Stick) is an imposing sight to behold. Both the stick and throttle use magnetic sensors, making them highly accurate. The stick and the foot of the joystick are detachable, allowing the joystick to be used in a cockpit.
The HOTAS Warthog lets you experience yourself what it feels like to fly the A-10C!
Thanks to its magnetic hall effect sensors, the Warthog Flight Stick is the most accurate joystick currently available. Thanks to its 5-spring system, it also has a fluent, linear resistance without dead zones. With 19 different action buttons, which can be programmed however you see fit using Thrustmaster's T.A.R.G.E.T (Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor), you enter a dogfight and come out as the victor.
Thrustmaster has made use of magnetic sensors in both throttles, allowing you to manage the aircraft’s power with the utmost precision. Thanks to the Thrustmaster patented ‘pull and push’ system, you use the realistic effects of the afterburner. No less than 17 different action buttons make sure you can have literally anything on hand. And if that’s not enough, the replica control panel offers another 15 action buttons, a trim wheel, and five programmable LEDs.
With the Thrustmaster T.A.R.G.E.T. (Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor) software, the possibilities to customise the joystick are endless. With T.A.R.G.E.T., you can program the joystick whichever way you see fit, but if you don’t have any programming experience, you can of course choose the default settings (and adjust them).
