Thrustmaster warthog and Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals?
Was just wondering if anyone has either of these products and could answer questions on them?

Hotas Warthog:

1) does it work with any other sims rise of flight, fsx,x-plane,arma 2 e.t.c?

2) Does it have force feedback? or optional force feedback?

3) how many usb does it have one for throttle and one for stick or one wire for the whole thing?

4) Is it worth the amount of money it is and if i get it off amazon will it have warranty?

Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals:

1) Are they well made and worth the money?

2) just one usb?

3) any other under $200 pedals reccomend?

Thanks!

Warthog HOTAS is the best stick I've ever had. That thing's just incredible.

1) Works fine with other sims but it can require a little bit of scripting in T.A.R.G.E.T. to make everything work. I don't fly with the stick in Arma 2. The helis there are designed for kb&m and you feel that when you use a stick. Plug and play for the DCS A-10C module obviously.

2) No and No.

3) One for the throttle one for the stick

4) IMO yes but if you burn that much money you should also pick up TrackIR 5. Yes, unless you buy used.

Pedals:

1) The ones I have are well made. I have them for about a year now. Never had any problems with them but they are plastic. Not as high quality as the HOTAS Warthog.

2) Yes

3) CH products, Saitek Combat Pedals, Saitek Cessna Rudder Pedals.

look around for a good deal on one. i wanted the TM warthog for ages but it was always a bit too pricey for me, until one day i found an ex-display model. it was displayed behind glass and not been touched, but they knocked €100 off the price and i snapped it up.
it's the best stick i've ever had, and the software lets you create all kinds of macros - it's very powerful.

for pedals i just use the ones that are with my cheap logitech steering wheel: they do the job well enough for me.

if trackIR's a bit expensive (which i think it still is) then give facetracknoIR a go: it's free so nothing to lose in trying it out. i use a laptop as the webcam, and it and my desktop are plugged into a gigabit switch, so latency is very low.
it's not as good as my previous set-up with freetrack and a wii remote (which is comparable to a v4 trackIR) but it's a lot less hassle to get up and running.

If I stick with dcs I'll get the TM warthog once I get the cash :P

I didn't have much luck with the facetracknoIR, It's too sensitive or maybe I'm too far from the cam. I'm gonna try build one of those 3-led freetrack things for like 10 bucks, that should give a better result at a fraction of the price of trackIR
