Dont mind me, just going to note these recommendations for when I get Elite after i finish uni.

Also Happy Upcoming/Belated Birthdays gentlemen
I looked at the HOTAS X then the mrs said "you will only want a better one in a month so I may just as well get you that". She knows me too well .

What I can do is get the X52 from Amazon because I do prefer the look of it and if I don't like it for whatever reason. I can send it back and get the Thrustmaster T16000 FCS HOTAS.

X52 is the popular weapon of choice

Hello.

So for Elite (yay come play my game) you probably want the X52 or X52 pro (looks much nicer in black) on your budget.

Avoid the X56, it's a pile of crap and won't last very long, The Thrustmaster T.160000M is a popular choice, but I prefer a tilted throttle than a sliding one, but it's a little cheaper if you wanted to add some other goodies to your list. Hotas X is an okay "occasional" stick, but won't last long as your daily driver.

Personally I like the Warthog with pedals because once you touch one, you'll never want to use anything made of plastic ever again lol, also you'll probably never wear it out. But that's way outside your budget. (if you can swing it though, you won't regret it)

Oh also pro-tip since you're not VR'ing (yet), get TrackIR on your buy list as soon as you can. VR/TrackIR are game changers for Elite. It's worth every.single.penny.

Other than that, enjoy Elite I totally won't stalk you or anything

Edit: read back a bit and want to address something

Not true, sadly, they still have issues, but at that price point, there's not much else. The issue is it's plastic, and wears out. Nothing you can do other than replace parts at extra cost, which will drive the price up, which takes it out of the price range. So they haven't improved it at all.

As ugly and archaic as they look, these products are actually the best you can get for flight sim gaming.

But they are so hideous to look at, I don't know how I can take the reviews seriously.

Depends what you're playing, most games (definitely Elite) require WAAAAY more inputs and axis than these provide. They do have great reviews though.

Of the reviews I've seen they are classed as the best one of the guy's used to own a warthog setup he tried Virpil and will never go back.
He payed for the warthog and got the virpil free and he still wouldn't change

Interesting... for the money they seem great? it reads as ~130 ish?

I assume plastic?

There's just something about the fit and finish of the hog and the feel etc, playing a lot of DCS with it makes it very, very difficult to want to try other things lol

Yeah, that is why i mentioned Flight sim. Maybe its just me but I separate Space sim and flight sim apart from one another. So for ED its not great. That being said, in Star Citizen there are YT videos of users going with a dual CH flight yoke control for some pretty detailed flying.

If money was no object. These are probably the best rudders you could get on the market that could take a beating and still keep steering
