Well, the cat is out of the bag and details can be seen here, it's the sort of info you wanted a month ago!

 

The X-55 Rhino H.O.T.A.S. System for PC is almost here! The Rhino features brand new, fully programmable drivers, enhanced 16-bit hall-effect sensors in the axis, swappable springs for the joystick so you can dial in your preferred stick tension, twin lockable throttles and a friction adjustment that can be set on the fly.
 
The throttle and stick have their own dedicated USB allowing more freedom of customisation and compatibility with some of your favourite classic games.

 

Everyone was left wondering what innovations this new joystick and throttle combination held.

Doesn't give a price. :(  Looks cool but what does it have that joysticks before it didn't have? :unsure:

 

I do like the idea of adjustable spring tension(on the fly not so important) as long as a light spring would still center correctly.

It's looking good and if they pitch the price well below the Thrustmaster then they may succeed.

 

Thrustmaster are releasing or have released the Hotus joystick as a single unit, So maybe Saitek are going too also, with the separate USB's..

I think the weight may have been increased with more metal embedded into it like the Thrustmaster..

 

The joystick grip is a deadringer of the Thrusty, but the Thrusty has a smaller footprint when you remove the baseplate..
