This flight sim setup is sick and excessive and way too expensive for a peripheral, and I want one. Oh, yes, I do.
I don’t have the optimism to “add to wish list” or “save it for later”. My entire PC before the add-on video card and the beefier power supply cost only very slightly more than that HOTAS setup. I could—and would—buy a bunch of other shiny things before I could see myself dropping almost half a grand on a joystick. But yeah, that’s pretty swank right there. The only way you can get more control realism is if you break into an Air Force base and steal a stick and throttle setup out of an actual A-10.
