Warthog HOTAS for sale
« on: March 09, 2014, 08:09:31 PM »
http://www.ebay.com/itm/221387967460?ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1558.l2649

This has been an expensive piece of home decor for the past 14 months.  Used about 2 months IIRC and works perfectly.  Listed on ebay due to being left in the lurch by 4 different players that said they wanted my rudder pedals.  Auction ends next Sunday.

Very nice.  The Buy It Now price is a very reasonable one for this unit.  If I didn't already have one I'd gobble this one up quick.  :aok

FYI - As a Warthog owner I will state the paint wear on the trigger unit is very normal and also used to happen to the old Cougars.  I finally got tired of repainting them and now just strip them to bare metal when they start peeling.  Same with the rocker switch.

X-52.  Been through three of them so far and am now using an X-52 Pro.


ps: If you read the op, you will notice that I haven't used the Warthog for some time now.

Perhaps it would be but I am apparently incapable of using rudder pedals.  The same reason I had to sell my CH Fighter Stick and Combat Stick years ago.  Paid a nice chunk of change for the Warthog and liked it a lot but I couldn't hit anything I shot at and generally felt uncoordinated using pedals.  I tried both CH and Saitek.  Liked the Saiteks better. 

Kept telling myself that I'd make another go with the pedals because I didn't want to get rid of the Warthog.  Eventually, I realized that I am comfortable with the twisty stick and the rest, as they say, is history.
