    First impressions, beautiful finish and a very nice tactile feedback in the buttons. No way to miss a input.
    Nice feel to the potentiometers as well with just the right amount of force needed to turn them.
    The layout is perfect for VR, easy to find and identify with headset on.
    The footprint is (not measured exactly) as the Warthog throttle as far as I can determine.
    Lighting is the same green colour aswell, perhaps a bit brighter and not adjustable.

    One heads up! In windows game controller program all buttons (33 an up to 44) wont show but they work just fine in DCS. Got me confused for a while before I started DCS and tested the controller there.

    A superb product and I’m very pleased with it.

    I’ve never reviewed a product before, well not officially and not any of my Flight Sim peripherals (and I have many) but here goes.
    On arrival i was pleased to see it looked the complete compliment to my TM Warthog HOTAS, same style and colouring although with more of a matt finish. It felt solid and ‘built for hours and hours of use’ and all the buttons switches and dials worked with a pleasant/reassuring feel to them. The RTN/SEQ stick takes a bit of force to get it on, but I got it on and it hasn’t affected functionality in any way – so please note…it does fit!
    There is a bit of play in the hook and gear levers – but this is to be accepted as they are designed to be moving parts. Win 10 only identifies 32 of the 44 buttons which at first caused a bit of alarm. I WAS going to work on that and post a solution up on Discord, however I didn’t have to …JackFlash (Developer from the TotalControls I think???) beat me to it. By following his step by step guide even I – a Tech noob was able to get all 44 buttons identified and fully operational in no time …cheers JackFlash…
    Using the mfbb is a delight, position-wise I have settled for a temporary place alongside my throttle and it looks fantastic. The black and neon green really are striking and it now remains for me to bind the keys in my Sim to get the best out of the Box. All in all I am absolutely delighted with the Box, if, and I think he does JackFlash IS part of the Production, then their after sales is also very good, he has helped me get all 44 buttons indentified and available for use in any Sim I choose.
    Marks out of 10?? Difficult to put it down really simply because I have hardly used it yet..more expert eyes than mine will nit pick small faults or areas that may or may not be improved upon…but from me..right now…a RESOUNDING 10 out of 10! It’s awesome (quoting my sons) and I for one have no doubt it will last for years…bravo TotalControls

    Box arrived and after a few hours using I have to comment (using for Il2 Sturmovik BoX):
    -Very solid hardware.
    -Plug and play, nothing to do with installation.
    -give me so many options. Large number of axis allow me to set cooling shutters, trims, revi/scope adjustments.
    -a lot of buttons for everything, lights, commands, set gunner positions possible. When the new fuel system comes I am confident can handle it.
    -two safety switches for sensitive things… gearsHook as it named for or ejection seat… up to you…

    So in combination with my already used hardware throttle/stick more than an complement.
    thumbs up for this high-quality device!

    Por fin me llegó después de 3 meses y estoy muy contento con la calidad del producto. Muy buena construcción en metal, lo utilizo para DCS en VR y es perfecto. He mirado michos UFC de otras compañias y este es el mejor de todos por su calidad y precio. Lo recomiendo 100%. La instalacion es muy facil y despues lo configuras a tu gusto. Muchas gracias por todo.

    This is a very nice box that makes DCS way more immersive and also more manageable in most situations! I use mine center-mounted and vertically oriented roughly as in the F/A-18C and I can’t look back. The only thing I miss is adjustable back-lightening. And yeah, I fly in VR!

    Great box, solid construction and high quality buttons and switches.
    Excellent complement to the Hornet, Viper etc. in DCS. Couldn’t live without it now, especially in VR.
    The only things that stop me giving it 5 stars are:
    1) the lights are very bright and they are NOT dimmable. (I know the dev is working on this for the future.)
    2) the device stops my PC from sleeping, so I have to unplug it at the end of every session.
    Apart from that, I can highly recommend this box to anyone who loves DCS. Great stuff!

    Excellent quality, plug and play. A fantastic add-on for every flight enthusiasts hotas.

    Incredible addition to the DCS F/A-18 Hornet module.
    I’m also using it for several other DCS modules, huge fan of all those Axes Dials for controlling DCS module lights and comms. Had an interesting situation where the MFBB Dial Axes were changing the center of my stick and rudder axes, reported it and the support team sent me a firmware mod which cleared it right up.
    Incredible support!

    This is probably my favorite piece of my flight sim kit. It is incredibly well made and the buttons and switches feel amazing. I feel even more immersed in DCS and would highly recommend this to anyone who asks. Inputting coordinates into the hornet has never been easier or more interesting for me. Well worth the price!

    Took delivery of my box today. At first I was convinced the dobber switch (4way switch) extension thingy didn’t fit. Jonas gently encouraged me to use a *little* more force, it would be ok. And it snapped right on!

    Next up, I hooked it up and started assigning bindings in DCS. It’s just *perfect*. You can easily bind all of an F-18s, an F-16’s or A-10s UFC functionality to it. The fact that it combines elements from both hornet and viper layout makes it better than a 1 on 1 copy, at least for me, as I fly lots of different machines.

    The switches and knobs feel nice and sturdy. There’s no way you will make unintended inputs. There are these little nubs on some of the buttons, such as the 5 (center of the numpad) and the middle of the row buttons to quickly feel where your hand is on the thing. Just perfect for VR.

    The box looks and feels premium, but as I found out trying to part one out for doing a DYI, it is actually quite cheaply sold! Just the switches and a control board come to almost the price of the box! This excellent flight sim peripheral is obviously a labor of love.

    This is one of the absolute best flight sim products you can get your hands on!

    The use case for this product is damn near unlimited. And the build quality is so strong i can not break it even if i wanted to.
    All the switches and knobs feel amazing and really sturdy.
    I cant recommend this product enough!

    5/5 stars, great job! Amazing product!

    I received my v2 box a week or so ago, and I have to say, what an improvement over the v1 box. Most importantly, all the LEDs brightness is now adjustable, and the lights go out when my PC goes to sleep or is shutdown. Add to this, nice new buttons that feel more solid, and switchable firmware for those who suffered from the device stopping their PC from sleeping.

    All in all, a great update to what was a brilliant product to start with!

    Well done!
