    Just got the Gunfighter in, it is looking awesome. Especially with the Warthog grip attached. I have been waiting to replace the Warthog gimbal for a long time, this one feels much better. Also it is very adjustable, need to play with it some more.

    Will get to making the mounting plate for it soon.

    After getting annoyed by the distance the JS mount sticks out towards your unmentionables when flying center stick, I realised that you could mount the plate sideways quite easily. This is far more comfortable. Just move the floating nut from one side of the clamp to the other, so you've got two on one side. Then space them far enough apart to match the holes on the plate.

    Be aware though, if you have a cheapo Ikea desk (Ikea Linnmon in my case) the throttle clamp can eventually punch a hole in it if you're got a weighty throttle like a Warthog. A thin metal shim to spread the weight is advisable. I'm using the SC concierge card for mine.

    Just a quick image of the Gunfighter mounting plate. The first silver and black batch has already finished anodizing. They will start shipping soon.

    I took them out briefly, but repacked them because I want to do an unboxing video.

    So far they look amazing!

    Will report back with more details in my video :slight_smile:

    I really am curious how it feels to fly dual joysticks vs Hotas. I don't want to go out and buy more yet though haha also I'm really interested in eye tracking along with all this.

    I just recently switched from HOTAS to dual sticks. I find it much, much more fun. Really engaging.

    I can not compare because I never flew with HOTAS. I watched several youtube videos about Star Citizen with dual joysticks and the general consensus is/was that dual joystick is better/more fun/more engaging than flying with HOTAS. So I got two Thrustmaster T 16000M joysticks.
    I will readily admit that it took me a while to get used to it.. but once you do.. I love it. Dual joystick coupled with Voice Attack is a very formidable setup and I highly recommend it.

    Is it possible to do dual joystick And Hands on throttle? That would be the ultimate setup right therei would turn off my lights and goto town with a setup like that.

    How does the game take it though I know you can have all 3 plugged in at the same time but will the game recognize all 3 at once and let you configure everything?

    I'll be purchasing 2 of these at some point for my CH dual stick setup. I'm tired of the sticks sliding all over the place while I play and I need them bolted down to something. This seems like a really good space saver for my desk as well. Looks like I'm going to have to work some overtime in order to save up quicker, ha.

    I have a setup like that

    I have up to 7 controllers plugged in, so yes. The only but is that you only can modify curves and deadzones on the first 4 controllers.
