thats the one im thinking of getting....do you have it?

if so can you program the spoilers and reverse thrusters to two of the three switche at the bottom of the joystick panel?

and on a scale of 1-10 what would be your rating?

also what is a HAT switch?

And look at this one. Shocked

I don't know about the future of any hardware/software items. You're right Radar , this is a great setup made by the same company I stated above in(money is no object). I wish I had this setup but I don't want to spend the money. It is very tempting.Smile

I have it! It's the best joystick ever made (that is, to me)! A hat switch is a little stick that you can move around to move the screen. It's way better than pressing the num numbers.

On a scale of 1-10 i'd give it a 9.9 (nothing can be perfect Wink ) Shocked BESIDES THE F-22 Shocked !!!

Here is the pricing for PFC flight controls, it wasn't on the first website. The one pictured above is not on the list, you have to call. They've had reports of heart attacks so they removed the price from the website. Smile

Main page: www.flypfc.com/
Checkout the Airline floor mounted control column and the center console on the main products page, it's enough to make you cry. Crying or Very sad
