TM Warthog Officially Dead

Post by LittleJP » Sun Oct 22, 2017 6:38 pm

It is with great sadness I pronounce the joystick in my Warthog setup dead. Looks like a PCB failure, and it's cheaper to replace with a new stick.

The VKB Gunfighter comes out at the end of the month and looks a bit more solid.

If mine died I’d be going for the Gunfighter Pro stock thing with the Pro grip.

The VIRPIL throttle thing looks quite nice too.

Never forget that you are an essential cog in the wheel, and if you break or fail it will let down your brother pilots, and the grimness of war allows for no such weakness.

4 years now. When my throttle died I was informed it wasn't under warranty anymore.

I think mine is at about 7 years now and still works flawlessly. Cosmetically it’s a bit battered though.
