[Hardware] When all that Saitek plastic breaks, what do you do? Go out and buy more? Switch brands? or built it yourself? As one A2A Simulations forum member did. The interesting thing about the Thrustmaster Warthog is, it totally changed what I personally will and will no longer accept in flight simulation hardware. The more serious I have become about my software addons, the more serious I have become about my hardware. After moving to that solid metal of the Warthog, plastic just doesn't work for me anymore. I don't like the way it feels in my hands. In the case of my old X52 and my current Proflight Rudder Pedals, the tensioner and springs popped broke. About 5 months ago, I had a go at a Redbird simulator and I must say, with the sheer realism of the RD1 Redbird pedals (in last shot below), they are slated to replace my Saiteks very soon. Now don't get me wrong. There is a huge market for Saitek products for both beginners and the budget conscious. But as this gentleman just did, he built his own. And all out of solid metal. Now that is just F$%ing awesome. I would love to see these in action.
