    So, my P3 arrived and it was a very smooth assembly. I'm looking to mount all or my controllers (for racing & flight), but having an issue. I can mount the steering wheel, shifter and the thruster controllers on the mounts provided. For the flight stick (I have a Warthog HOTAS), appears that the only place to mount is in front of the seat? The bracket with the flight stick interferes with the steering wheel. So, my question is, can all the controllers be mounted at once or are we supposed to swap around?

    Wasn't there an additional HOTAS mounting option when you ordered? I remember it being an extra $50 or so.

    The mounts for the HOTAS were provided. The problem I'm having is that the stick is mounted under the steering wheel and there's not much wiggle room to adjust.

    That's what I was looking for to mount the stick on the opposite side of the thrusters. Any chance you could share the design of the custom mount?

    I also modded it by changing the bracket so the supplied bracket fitted inside the L bracket so i can remove or adjust it so i can get in the sim rig.
