Thrustmaster A-10 Warthog Hotas in Prometheus Movie!

I do believe the Prometheus research vessel in the movie Prometheus uses a modified Thrustmaster A-10 throttle. You can see it briefly at the end around when they throttle up to liftoff before ramming the alien ship. It's good to know remnants from the A-10 will still be with us in 2089! :joystick:

 

It's clearly a Warthog throttle, while the top friction dial and right side slider also remain intact!

 

If they hadn't switched its position to the right hand exposing the buttons

lining the right hand side, you would never know.

 

I'm curious if anyone else noticed this?

For bragging rights of course! :music_whistling:

oh yea! :D its like a warthog throttle with the switches removed on the base. But the stick looks different....kinda like one of the madcatz sticks. Nice eye. ;)

Thats so funny. If I enrolled in an air force, sat down in the cockpit, and looked down to see THAT stick in front of me I'd look my instructer straight in the eye and say "I want to mop floors".

Warning: Nothing I say is automatically correct, even if I think it is.

I have the non-pro and cannot complain. I was thinking about an upgrade but the Warthog is too expensive (+pedals) and lack some rotaries and buttons I need for my sims, the X-65f is also problematic as is the G940 and CH line also feels too expensive in my country... (full set costs more than Warthog). Maybe I just expect too much for the price, but the X-52 fulfils my needs for the cost. Maybe it's a question of perspective, or maybe it's just Suncom is dead. :)
