Not so. It turns out they live just down the road from me in sunny Sydney, Australia. Small world indeed.

In December 1997 Saitek brought out the PC-Dash, a device which when combined with the X-35/36 programmable joystick and throttle effectively replaced my whole cockpit! | As of 2018, Saitek has been acquired by Logitech.
