The grip looks a little like the Warthog stick.

The grip is like the X-65. Edit - with repositioned top red button.

My guess is Force Feedback version, these vents on yellow strip suggest.
Cyborg FF use spring coil too.

I doubt it's FFB - if it indeed has it, the slogan wouldn't read X-55 'Advanced Control Flight System MACH'.... The marketeers would be screaming to add a 'FORCE' monkier to it...

I wouldn't put much emphasis on the 'vent' holes, Saitek is known to have excessive styles...

My money is on it being an all plastic and spring based stick as a cheaper to make replacement to the x-65f which might be discontinued now as being as they're hard to find.

Just rummaging around Saitek's official blog and noticed this picture of their 'testing bench' from August this year. See the throttle unit on the far right? Looks as if a 65F and Warthog units had a baby...anyone able to shed more light on that?

Could be wrong but aren't those all navy squadrons on the wall? Possible rhino link?

Air Force is also represented on that wall, though you're right about it being a good number of VFA squadrons.

Pacifism is a shifty doctrine under which a man accepts the benefits of the social group without being willing to pay - and claims a halo for his dishonesty.

The average naval aviator, despite the sometimes swaggering exterior, is very much capable of such feelings as love, affection, intimacy, and caring. These feelings just don't involve anyone else.
