Flight sim buffs will definitely tell you that the most important peripheral that you can ever purchase for your computer would be a good joystick, and there is just no substitute for that. After all, a joystick was the de facto “weapon” of choice when X-Wing was released on the PC, as the mouse just didn’t quite cut the mustard especially in an intense dogfight, and you had to keep on moving your mouse around and around trying to catch up with the TIE Fighter that flew past you. Well, Mad Catz has something for flight sim buffs with the introduction of the Saitek X-55 RHINO H.O.T.A.S. (Hands On Throttle and Stick), which happens to be a product designed and developed in order to offer flight simulation enthusiasts the most realistic flight experience possible without breaking the bank.
Tipped to ship to consumers some time early next year, the X-55 RHINO has been specially styled after modern fighter jet control systems, where it was constructed from ground up and boasts of different customizable options which were not previously included in an H.O.T.A.S. system. It does not matter whether you are a pilot of a modern fighter, a single- or multi-engine aircraft, the X-55 RHINO gets the job done without missing a beat. [Product Page]
