Wow! For that price you can buy a whole shell with the Quad inside!

Also for that kind of money I know where you can get a real one modified and refurbished all ready for interface....

if the picture is the actual throttle for sale it looks very much like the symulatory/cockpit sonic one, which can be bought for less than half the price thats being asked in that ebay listing !

And as Bob said, Northern flightsim have a real one, refurbished and modified for that money.

It must be a typo...:roll:

The price or the USB Interface required? I think this seller actually believes that is what it is worth, and pit builders don't shop around or talk to each other. Let's see what happens in 9 days. I wish him luck!

Yes good luck to the chap, But if he gets this price for it then we may see a price hike in TQs :p

Well it could happen to either someone in a Flight School that has no contact with the simming communitty or someone filthy rich that is his first product even on FS and thought of it as a Bargain!! I think he might even sell it :)

Blimey! I only had my eyes tested yesterday as i happens (yearly checkup) I can't be seeing things! THAT PRICE!

I bought my throttle from ebay about a year ago for 170 INCLUDING postage from America. Although not as good as that one, If that sold - i'm puttin mine on could make $6,000 PROFIT! now that's not to be sniffed at just for nowt!
Only joking i wouldn't go through the hassle of listing my beloved throttle on ebay:(
Seriously though if there was a best offer icon i may ask him for 1p just for a laugh:D

Like you say - i bet someone with more money than sense comes along and buys it (i just wish someone would come and so that with my listings!)
