Having evaluated the different options from the various information sources available I opted to get the CH Fighterstick and Throttle as my HOTAS of choice. It arrived in a pleasingly huge box and I got to grips with it straight away. I’ve noted my totally unscientific and subjective opinions below 🙂
As part of the long list of preparations for the release of Elite : Dangerous I decided it was time to get a new HOTAS system. Hands On Throttle And Stick means exactly what it says; a joystick and throttle with so many buttons you don’t need to take your hands off to fiddle with the keyboard. They can be expensive bits of kit, but after a lot of searching and reading I settled on getting the CH Fighterstick and CH Throttle.
This post will break down why I went for the CH and I’ll do a follow-on post about what I think about the HOTAS system itself.
