Hardcore Flight Sim Gamers, Thrustmaster Unveils the HOTAS Warthog Just for You

We tend to use the word epic a lot today for different things that are well beyond the standard realm of cool. The new joystick system for flight simulation fans that Thrustmaster has pulled the wraps off of today definitely deserves the epic title.

The new joystick is called the HOTAS Warthog and epic may be an understatement. The thing is modeled to look exactly like the joystick and throttle from the awesome A-10C Warthog combat aircraft. You know the jet; it’s built around the massive rotating barrel cannon of oblivion. The joystick and throttle are each constructed of mostly metal parts and have metal bases that can be screwed to your desk to keep them from moving during dogfights.

The aquarium has gravel a filter, and internal LEDs that are all powered by your USB port. The water return tube looks like a faucet just to be different and a desk lamp on top is on a flexible stalk to light up the tank or whatever you may be working on.
