  1. S~! In case some of you are interested, I found and bought one of these. US $49.99 + $13.25 UPS Ground. Damn good price. New in the box. Should be mighty fine addition for someone who is going to get the Warthog Hotas. (can add in for flying F16 viper) Good luck. http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290451958675&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
  2. Multiple sources selling this Hotas have confirmed Nov. Do you really think that its going to go on sale without the game it was made for :music_whistling:
  3. S~! Well this is hardly a new request. :) Lets see whats comes after A10 .... just a hunch but I think we are finally going to see viper.
  4. zzzzZZzzz Lots of people have found out that its going to pop in November. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that its going to drop with the game and that the two companies are working (smartly) for a synergistic launch.
  5. S~! Cyberkut Thanks for the input fellas. I think I am just going to grab leo's board. The only question I have is do I require one for each controller or can I just put one in the Stick and have it do both controllers ???
  6. You should take a long look in the mirror. Maybe take your own advice ? No one needs your approval before posting. :smilewink:
  7. Did you not get your coffee today ? Pointing out that there are economic interests at play is not out of bounds. Clearly you have difficulty with opposing points of view.
  8. Thats hardly an unbiased statement Wags. You have a business relationship with them, so your assessment by its very nature is influenced by that relationship. Regardless, ultimately it will be the consumer who decides what it is or is not worth. I am rather interested to see what kind of numbers it will be able to sustain after say 6 months.... I will probably get one, to go with all my other Hotas sets, but going to wait till its under 400, which is still pretty good money for this stick given the fact that there are no rudders. There is nothing new or radical here. Its a cast metal stick with a single hall sensor. Not an exact replica of the Apollo capsule's reentry controls :music_whistling: 550 is too much.
  9. Not touching it at 500 + . Sub 400 is where it will get some sales in the general market. Fanbois to the contrary.
  10. :crash: My eyes !! Someone take the quote button away from GG. The guy just said hi :P
  11. 450 or best offer http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180528735204&ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT
  12. S~! Viper Yeah found all of those, just wondering if there is a certain brand that has a higher success rate for sticks. It seems to be a crapshoot with these things.
  13. S~! As the title says, looking for a gameport to Usb adaptor for my new Suncom Hotas. Anyone using one of these ?
  14. Which part of this thread are you referring to sir ?
  15. Hmm I must have missed this one on first scan. How do you prove a negative :megalol:
  16. I don't even know wtf that means .... but sure in the next life when F.O has a working multiplayer/multirole fighter i will bow down. Buckwheat over there has taken so many peoples money for Area 51 screenshots of what ??? You want to keep paying that's your biz, they got me once and never again. I prefer to take that money and invest it in hardware for that eyecandy you despise so much. You got a real bug about that, I have a feeling your one of those fellas that plays IL2 at 640/480 so you can see the bandits earlier. :pilotfly: I think basically we agree with the current state of sims in general, however I take the constructive negative feedback approach vs the :baby: suck on the devs johnson approach. To each there own. I remember back in 2006 when Buckwheat was telling world plus dog that 'this was the year'..... Hell my memory isn't the greatest in my old age now, but wasn't I the one who got you to join A51 ??? Perfectly willing to support any company, but they have to do more than piss in my ear and then try to tell me its just rain :music_whistling: Now I go there about once a year ..... when I need a laugh. :megalol: All teasing aside, i like everyone else can only hope for more quality sims, just don't see anything on the horizon yet with the possible exception of DCS F16C Block 52 - If it happens.
  17. Nope. I do hardware. And for me the point of terrain in a flight sim is not to allow ground interdiction missions (thats a tertiary concern, not primary) but to provide immersion and realism for air combat battles. I don't need my cycles being used to fight ground ai on a mountainside. I fly so I can fight in the AIR ;)
  18. Negative .... if he is going to buy a new card .... what is a 100 dollars going to do for him ?? He will go from one junk card to another .... what kind of upgrade path is that ?
  19. In DCS A10c and after.
  20. World detail has to do with engine capabilities. Since apparently there is supposed to be a new engine in the works .... now seems like a reasonable time to bring it up. Also its not a question of difficulty, just commitment. The technical challenges have long ago been conquered.
  21. Please do share, u2nxt an hall sensors mod is 600+ you do the throttle you can tag on another 150 to that minimum. If you know of a cheaper option love to hear about it.
  22. +1 wow .... I think this is the first post of yours I have ever agreed with. Well said.
  23. Take that budget up to 200 dollars and you can get something worth having. Recommend a minimum nvidia 265 or ati 4870
  24. Yes your right .... cause only YOU have a clue, the rest of us don't have any sim connections :music_whistling: vaporware.
