    Never tried putting my joystick between my legs – I guess I’m too worried about the family wondering what I’m bashing around down there…

    Blue lights do my head in too, I’m a red person – but piss taking aside – nice setup mate.

    I thought about going red. And I was worried the blue might be rough. But its actually a really soft light. Very easy on the eyes. All though now I’ve taken the braket that hols the joystick completely off and am using the mouse pad platform to hold the joystick.

    Nice mood lighting while you’re playing with the stick?

    I’m afraid my setup is a HOTAS X (same HOTAS as you) set on my desk on either side of my keyboard, with a little armrest on the desk so I can hold my arm up easier.

    I have the same HOTAS, it lasted exactly one year until a main button gave up (last night). Maybe I’m a rough bugger, but I’m unimpressed.
    Hope your one is still going well.
    I like that you have welded brackets to the chair, dedication.

      Mine still works well.  But I spend allot of time chauffeuring it to and from the spa.  Did you just give you HOTAS those strip-mall pedicures?  It wont last that way you know!

    Bought a Saitek Pro Flight X52 online without thinking 🙂

    Rex’s fault for talking about it.

      Seriously cool.

      I would be so dead right now if I tried to sneak something like that in the house.

      As Mrs Simian uses the PC to work from during the day (damn home office!), she would probably notice.

      I haven’t told Mrs Sketchy yet…it looks quite different to mine too, so she’ll notice, not sure how I’ll work it into the conversation. Probably should before she sees it on the credit card bill.

      Anyone want my old stick? One of the 15ish buttons doesn’t work. T-Flight HOTAS Thrustmaster. I’ll ship it for free in NZ 🙂

    Just do what I do with Mrs xsannz.

     

    Unpack it after getting courier to work, then one evening go and stick it in the cupboard under the stairs where I keep all my old gear, and then next time she is awake I go rummaging in there looking for something and haul it out and say might try this old gear again….

    And promptly sell your old gear to make room.

     

    And it’s better to buy the toy and ask forgiveness and get the same grief than ask get declined  and get grief

    I’m jealous of the lot, mine is very standard, old school-office, with a plant and no flash lighting.

    On the subject of the Thrustmaster HOTAS, is that it I spy in the Muse – Reapers video clip?

    In the first minute of video.

      Cutting production costs is my guess 🙂

      I just did a search on it, it has been talked about on Reddit, 8 months ago, so I’m a bit slow.
