While they look cool in some odd way, I think it'll be too out of place. I just can't get past the looks. Other offerings here have looked better.

Estimated price that was communicated to someone at the flightsim show this past weekend is ~$500 USD but haven't seen a release date. I can guess it will not be too far now since they already have that device ready to be put into the TARGET software.

Is it just me or is that thing just begging to be bolted down in a simpit? I don't see any way that it can be stable or immobile with that design without being anchored down in some way.

7 Kilos is quite a lump.
As long as they've paid attention under the mounting plate it should be stable enough, or at least as stable as it's competitors

It does look a nice addition to a Warthog setup though, but not good enough to swap out my Slaws just yet

The old "tweezers" with detent center system (CH, Saiteks...)

BTW - By adding a extra 'slider' with up, down and press button, and press button in 'castle' and 'shoulder' HAT's, Tm F-18 grip has the same number of buttons than Warthog grip: 19 buttons + POV HAT.

It's about time TM got around to making the fabled RCS Pro, so to speak... not the cheap TFRP, but something absolutely high-end, more overbuilt than the Cougar or Warthog that you'd pair with it.

$500 is a steep price to swallow for pedals, though, certainly MFG/Slaw/VKB/PFC tier. I'll have to wait for prices to drop on these. But TARGET compatibility alone means it wins over the others, since I need the ability to merge my controllers into a single DirectInput ID without having the default controller IDs visible. Some older games are just quirky like that.

That said, I'm in no rush. My Simped/vario pedals are still quite nice to work with, and the fact that they're gameport pedals makes them trivial to interface with a Cougar (or, more recently, a RUSBA if I need them to work standalone).

These pedals looks great, but 500USD puts them in competition with the MFG, Slaw pedals. If I had that budget, I'd go for MFG instead.

The price of these has dropped, at least on Amazon UK. I'm after new pedals, my Saiteks are about done. These pedals are calling to me but not at £400 +, when these get into the £300s I'll bite.
