Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog Dual Throttles PC
**AVAILABLE END OF APRIL**
Pull and Push Throttle System with Disengageable Afterburner
The throttle component has also been very carefully designed, with a dual throttle system allowing for independent control of 2 motors: a locking system lets the user either attaches the 2 throttles together, or else keeps them independent of one another. The magnetic sensor technology used for the throttles (14-bit resolution, with 16384 values on each throttle) provides unrivaled precision. Switching to the Idle and Afterburner detents is carried out via a Pull and Push system, for even greater realism. The Afterburner detent is disengageable, allowing users to perfectly adapt the throttle control to the type of airplane they are piloting. The throttles feature a total of 17 action buttons, a 'Point Of View' hat and a 'mouse hat / slew control'.
- Dual replica throttles - 3D magnetic sensors on the 2 throttles allow you to enjoy surgical precision that stays razor-sharp over time; USB connection with upgradable firmware
- Dual throttles, featuring a Metal hand rest, Locking system, Adjustable friction system, Realistic IDLE detent with "Pull & Push" system, Realistic and disengage able AFTERBURNER detent, and Realistic pressure on buttons and switches.
- There are 17 action buttons in total plus one mouse hat with push button plus one 8-way "point of view" hat; a weighted base (over 6.5 lbs.) is incorporated underneath the throttles
- Programming software: T.A.R.G.E.T. (Thrust master Advanced programming Graphical Editor) is available for free at Thrust master's support website. It lets you test, configure and program Thrust master controllers using the "Drag and Drop" principle
- U.S. Air Force-licensed A-10C dual replica throttles + built-in replica control panel, for use with PC flight simulation software and games; Officially licensed by the U.S. Air Force; PC compatible (Windows 8/7/Vista/XP).
Control Panel with 5 Programmable LEDs
The product's final mechanical component, the control panel, provides an extensive number and variety of controls. It includes a friction wheel, allowing users to manually adjust the resistance of the throttles according to their own taste. It also features backlighting for functions, which users will certainly appreciate for night flights; the 5 programmable LEDs are also a plus for use in dark or low-light conditions. The base includes a 'trim wheel' and 15 action buttons, including numerous push buttons with resistance identical to that on a real airplane and industrial metal switches (2 or 3 positions) with highly realistic pressure.
Thrustmaster expert flying ecosystem
These products are part of a range of flight simulation peripherals that can be used in conjunction with one another: a complete ecosystem featuring the Hotas Warthog, TFRP rudder pedals* and MFD* (Multi-Functional Display) cockpit panels. These elements are also compatible with the T.A.R.G.E.T advanced programming software**.T.A.R.G.E.T advanced programming software** on PC
The Hotas Warthog joystick's deadly weapon is known as T.A.R.G.E.T (Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor). T.A.R.G.E.T is a software suite allowing users to test, configure and program Thrustmaster controllers.
In this way, T.A.R.G.E.T allows for total interaction between different Thrustmaster USB controllers, with simplified configurations in simulators, and the use of a single preset for all controllers, rather than having to use as many different presets as controllers. Finally, T.A.R.G.E.T includes built-in presets for well-known games (both recent and older titles), and lets users create new presets too.
