Hello. I am looking for someone who made experience with the Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog in combination with X11 on a Apple machine. Please no assumptions or tipps how it might work. Searching confirmations of someone who already did it and can tell if it works fine or even not.

Thanks in advance!

I have a copy of this joystick and used it to make the Mac configuration file that ships with X-Plane 11, so it is compatible. It's an impressive, heavy duty and expensive stick.  In my personal opinion though, it's not worth it for the price compared to some of the other options out there, mostly because X-Plane 11 cannot utilize all of the switches and options on it yet. For a HOTAS style joystick, I would probably recommend the Saitek X52 instead.

Where to find that Warthog config file?

Has anything changed regarding the support of the Thrustmaster HOTAS stick? If not yet fully supported, can you be more specific on what switches are not supported and when this will change?

thanks a lot

New features to help support the Warthog were added in an earlier version of X-Plane (I can't remember if it was 11.10 or 11.20).
