While schmoosing about looking for the latest word on the X52 PRO, I came acros this JS.

Looks a tad different. Twin throttles is a bit of a gimmick rather than useful, though the it's true, faffing about with multiple engines in IL2 can be a pain.

Not sure about the throttle position tbh.. or the toggle switches... I like the way my Evo just fits with everything just so...

Don't do it for me I'm afraid... :(

i'm excited by this (Nicks used it)

I wanna try prop pitch on one of the throttles

The layout is sucky imo.. the throttles should be infront (i.e. opposite side of where they are now) of the stick if anything, preferably to the side as well. (Though they keep them in the middle for cack handers.)

Prop pitch on a twisty = win.
