that is a testament on how well they build it smile

I saw an add for the Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog PC - and one of the most expensive options : at $380

If you are referring to the X56, it is fully programmable, macros- and advanced commands and all. Programs exactly like the X55.

My X56 Grey throttle moves just fine. I was used to the X55 throttle action being so free, whereas the X56 has this, soft feel to it like the cushion eject on tape decks, but now I am used to it and I prefer it because I can be more precise with my throttle movements. All the buttons and knobs and toggle switches feel as well built as the X55, maybe even better.

The one you tried is the Blue...you definitely should do the Grey.

Which Windows you running? Also, where are you located?

This is true. I thought I had a problem with my X56 (turned out it was my USB port) and they did ask me to take multiple angle pix and video to send them of me cutting the cables, then they would send the new one to me in a few days or so.

Tom,

I found that the X-55 did not get along with Win10 and it was hard to support it. It was one reason why I went to the X56 instead.

I was going to say I'll sell you my X55 HOTAS but being you are in Brazil, the cost of shipping and things probably wouldn't make it worth it.
