    It's a slippery slope. Before you know it you'll be telling yourself you NEED to buy those new $300 rudder pedals even though your current ones still work. Trust me, I know.

    I got this a few weeks ago. It was on clearance so I got it cheap, and I skimped on lunches for a couple weeks to help pay for it. (The passage of time makes it feel more acceptable. That it was on clearance on the cheap further reduces the ire...notice I don't quote a price here. And that I sacrificed a little bit to help pay for it seals the deal.)

    I'm just messing...I don't hide stuff from my wife. Exactly why I don't have rudder pedals or a Warhog HOTAS. Hmmmm, maybe I need to work on being a little more devious...that HOTAS is sounding more like a necessity than a luxury...like a hardware requirment for MQT perhaps? I can blame Snoopy and El Roto right?

    You can see where the conversation is heading!!!
    Wrong!
    It should go like that:

    Wife/GF: What's that?
    476th member: What's what.
    Wife : that new thing on/under your desk (looks at tablet, Warthog, rudders,...)
    476th member: Oh, That's already there for ages.

    And for some reason I'm now thinking about Al Bundy and Peggy

    I have similar problem to sMaat regarding essential pit upgrade. I'm thinking more of the bribery route:

    Warthog HOTAS + rudder pedals = Kitchen Aid

    Not only do I get new toys, I also get more cakes to munch on while flying :-D
