Which is currently the recommended HOTAS for Star Citizen?

saitek is currently up in the air, due to being bought by logitech recently.

 

the thrustmaster warthog is nice, I own own, but VERY expensive.

 

many people think dual stick is a decent way to go, I can not find fault in their arguements

 

if you are considering pedal ch make a nice set as do thrustmaster, I own a set of ch pedals.

 

this is probably a good video to watch

Just as the question states. I am curious with the current version of Star Citizen which HOTAS is the more relevant.

Also if you happen to know of a Lefty and Righty Flight stick combination go ahead and link that in a comment.

Lets discuss. :)

HOSAS go-to (which I am using) is dual T16000m.

 

More expensive right sticks are often used by top pilots.

 

Warthog, VKB Gunfighter, Mamba, etc.

 

Usually lefty is always T16km

 

Don't buy Saitek.

Both great comments, the video was quite informative. Thanks. :) 

I have considered dual stick for some time but nobody makes them at least I was not aware until now.

Daydreaming at work, eh?

 

Seriously though, much easier to have questions asked and answered there. If me or Corwin is on, we can answer pretty much all the joysticker questions.

 

Also, what's your discord name?

Pretty [sic] looking rudder pedals. I may get these in the future as well pending whether I go HOTAS or HOSAS.

Crosswinds are currently the best value for money, yes.
