This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Yes it’s a ridiculous price for a ‘joystick’ and if you are looking for a controller for your RetroPi this is not for you.

However if you are into serious flight/space sims this is pretty much considered the gold standard.

Out of stock everywhere at the moment and the previous best price I could find was Curry’s at £325, also not in stock.

I have jumped in and placed an order as yesterday was only available via 3rd party sellers for in excess of £550!

Hopefully this will help someone, assuming you can wait for stock.

UPDATE: Sorry dudes my mistake, that was the X56, not the Warthog, this is a good price.

Wow this was £100 less just last month and had been at that sort of price for the last couple months, maybe its better to wait.

I thought the VKB ones were generally considered better these days?

This one is pretty good, just don't twist it. They don't cope with it very well.

According to 3C not been that sort of price for years. The stick on its own is cheaper but at the moment the twin pack is almost same price as the stick.

Or the Vipril gear.

These are amazing, definitely get rudder pedals if serious about it!

That's not the same HOTAS
I'm seriously temped to bite at this price. Next step, PCVR and DCS flight sim heaven.

Wow, that is seriously pricey gear. Nice though.
After spending an hour looking at Virpil and VKB options this just looks like a much better option for me. It's much much cheaper. You are still looking at about £700+ for a Virpil Hotas setup, and as far as I can tell VKB haven't launched a Throttle yet and the only sticks you would want are €400 alone.

I've just went and bought this instead. Hopefully I get some more time to mull it over before it comes in stock.
Do not buy if budget tight. Needs some mounting kit, unless you can screw it to your desk. Than either DIY (approx £30) or branded ones for £200. Anyway, if not mounted it is unusable as it got such a real movement resistance that it makes it lift away from desk.
Superb price - hasn't been this price in quite a while

I use mine on a desk without mounting, no problems?
I don’t use any mounting kit with mine. It’s heavy and pretty planted.

It's like I spent hours over the weekend watching Warthog videos for nothing.
Just for the fun of it really I have been onto Amazon to ask why they can cancel the Pre-order claiming they cannot get anymore then offer it up for sale again at £100 more.

Just got a load of bull about demand led pricing and the guy just couldn’t get his head around the fact I wasn’t complaining that it was more expensive now, but the fact they cancelled my pre-order because they wanted to make more money.
currently back to £281
