Hahah well as I said it is pretty old seems the latest ones are now up to 12,000! I wasn't too fussed about the age of it, it's just it was rusted and seemed like a previously returned unit.

After I returned the unit to Bumper Bargains they said they don't have any in stock to replace it with but on the site it's still listed as being in stock and I could've bought one off their site, something fishy is going on with Bumper Bargains, so while the customer service was great, I have a feeling they sell Returned/B-stock units rather than brand new units.

My new stick from FlightStore turned up this morning so I'm dying to get out of work haha. Will update when I check it out later!

That is shocking that they think they could get away with sending out a rusted one, like you would just accept it! Will get mine tomorrow as I paid a fortune for Saturday delivery as I couldn't wait lol

Exactly! It's ridiculous, I have a MASSIVE feeling that if I had repurchased the stick from them, I would've just ended up with the one I returned.

And ah right haha! I ordered mine yesterday morning and paid the 9.99 for the next day delivery and it turned up this morning at 7.30, so that's great.

Because as I said, I suspect Bumper Bargains trades in returns and B-stock units, so while they mightn't of known it was rusty, it was a unit a previous customer has returned that they deemed acceptable to resell as a new unit. Which would explain a lot (the age, the condition of the unit, etc)

It doesnt :P

Got my new Warthog here, Serial number is 5349 which is still kinda old, but its in much better condition and the tags on the cords say "V3" as opposed to my old set saying V1. I'm happy.

Hopefully the buttons actually work and the stick is centered unlike my previous set. ___

Gah my new stick has one of the same problems as my old stick, when I move the stick in a circle, it reaches right into the upper right, and lower right corners fine, but it will NOT reach the upper left or lower left corners. What gives?!!? Yes I've tried the calibration software
