@Furiz Per the Winwing rep on the HOTAS discord from earlier today in response to a question about the F-16 throttle status:
 

(paraphrased) The throttle is ready to go but they're still working on the stick. They want to release both together so no updates on the throttle until the stick is finalized. They're "close" but no firm ETA.

 

Hangar: A-7 | A-10C | AV-8B | F-14B | F-15C | F-15E | F-16C | F-18C | KA-50 | Mi-8 | SA342 | UH-1H

What a strange buisness policy from them, there is gazillion of people that just need the throttle, and yet they are not giving any buying option but to buy it with the stick, like the F-18 combo.

 

Btw that was the statement about 3 months ago.

 

Thnx.

 

Btw cant find their Discord, can you give me a link?

Look for Hotas/Hosas/Simpit on Discord. WinWing have a sub channel

If I saw it correctly in the WW shop there is the throttle without handles (Gemini throttle, $129,95) and the F/A-18 metal handles ($215,95) for a total of $345,90 + tax and shipment. Need to think about it.

The base is meant for helicopter grips (thus, no switches), but in any case the handles you mention are for the Super Taurus and won't fit the Orion/Gemini throttle.

Annoyed by my posts? Please consider donating. Once the target sum is reached, I'll be off to somewhere nice I promise not to post from. I'd buy that for a dollar!

OK, my fault. So it is still not available seperately. Thanks for the clarification.

Orion wasn't available separately either. I've put the old TM Cougar stick on my Orion Stick. Will be interesting if they do the F16 Throttle and adapter plates with a Stick handle as a combo. The F16 should really get a rigid force stick though.

They work as buttons but not through the TARGET software. I think you have to manually bind them but to be honest I haven't used it for a while. Complicated but I'm concentrating on my airline setup for practice while stuck on Furlough. Day job comes first....
