Oh man yes, the Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS setup? That was my first HOTAS, I ended up splashing out on a Saitek X52 HOTAS when I found out the Elite Dangerous store was selling them, and that’s what I use nowadays, as it’s a lot of fun and there’s lots of buttons to cover various functions, but the Thrustmaster T-Flight is pretty sturdy, works fantastic and is good value for cash, so much so that I’m holding onto mine as a backup in case anything happens to my X52!
As for Quince, I’ll have to check that out, I could be done with the cash! I’ve been hanging out in Lave and the surrounding Alliance-controlled areas (As a kickstarter backer I got to start out in Lave with a Cobra Mk III and a handful of credits much like the classic 1984 start), although making money has been kind of slow.
Pro tip if you go to Lave: Do -not- take any Horizons missions that have Lave 2 as their destination. They’re not supposed to be in the game because you can’t currently access Lave 2’s surface. I had to file a support ticket to recover lost rep and cash from the fine for that debacle, ahaha.
And yeah, we should totally make a group! I could maybe see about getting something put together sometime soon.
One more thing - If anyone encounters an NPC named Chaz GELF, take a screenshot if you can! That’s my little name-in-game cameo, again from the Kickstarter, haha.
