Thrustmaster Launches Most Epic HOTS Joystick Ever Called the Warthog
 
 

Thrustmaster has been making some of the best joysticks for flight simulations for years. The company has now announced a new HOTAS system called the HOTAS Warthog. The controller system includes a throttle and a joystick that are exactly like the one in the A-10C Warthog combat jet.

The joystick and throttle are mode almost entirely of metal with bases that are metal and designed to be mounted securely for serious play. The things weigh 14 pounds and have 55 programmable buttons altogether.

The controller also has a pair of 4-way hat switches with push buttons inside. This thing is awesome and will be what all the flight sim fans want for Christmas. The only downside is that each Warthog system sells for $499.99 and they will land at the end of the month.
