This standalone throttle allows joystick owners to enjoy the unrivalled realism of a HOTAS (Hands On Throttle And Stick) configuration. The HOTAS Warthog Dual Throttles controller offers and perfects this unique experience by providing dual throttles combined with a comprehensive control panel! It is the ideal device to make the most of all flight simulations.
H.E.A.R.T HallEffect AccuRate Technology
The main asset of this Thrustmaster product is unquestionably the H.E.A.R.T. technology (HallEffect AccuRate Technology), which features 3D (Hall Effect) magnetic sensors located on both throttle controls, ensuring surgical and lasting precision and 14-bit resolution (delivering 16,384 values) on each throttle.
Dual replica throttles
Buttons and switches alike offer realistic pressure levels, delivering unrivalled sensations. The controller features no less than 17 action buttons, as well as 1 sleep (a 2-axis ministick) with a 3D magnetic sensor and 1 multidirectional hat.
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'.
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 Dual Throttle, Hotas Warthog Flight Stick*, 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**.
