Why The Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog Dual Throttle Joystick Is Still Popular
Over A Decade Of Service And Still Popular
The Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog Dual Throttle joystick came out in 2010 and quickly earned a name for itself as one of the best choices in HOTAS out there. It has been some time since games which truly benefit from a HOTAS controller have been common, but with the rise of Microsoft Flight Sim and several other similar games arriving the HOTAS is back. You may wonder if a controller of this antiquity is still worth the ~$450 investment, and the good news is that so does NiKKTECH.
NiKKTECH happened to come across one to review, which is exactly what can answer this question. Thrustmaster have not slacked off since the release, still offering software updates to the Warthog Dual Throttle joystick. The updated TARGET command center lets you program different profiles, fiddle with the LEDs and other tweaks.
The HOTAS Warthog Dual-Throttle Joystick by Thrustmaster may already be almost 12 years of age but after numerous hardware and software tweaks it still has what it takes to satisfy even the most demanding flight and space simulator fans.
