I'm liking it a lot.
Full head of hair, and no mountain man beard.
Spend more time in DCS these days than in elite.
Where I use the throttle a lot more than that second stick :/
I'm also a touch less crazy there too, cause well pulling 7g turn in a Harrier and your likely to rip a wing off.
Heck just go fast enough and you rip a wing off.
Love the extra challenge of thrust limits as well.
Need to pay attention when you can only bottom the throttle for five minutes before you loose your only engine
Virpil has swapped that current throtle though, the one I have is no longer in production and the new one got some more hats and whatnot, as well as an analog stick on the index finger.
I can honestly recommend the new rift as well.
Got mine on wednesday, but I'm having some cable issues. Well I'm 90% sure it's a cable issue.
But besides that it's amazingly more clear, especially in dcs.
But comparing dcs and elite is like comparing Lego Duplo with mechanical engineering.
