Hello guys. I am venturing into sim gaming and am deciding on my controllers. Originally, I was going to go with the Turtle Beach VelocityOne Flight stick. It has most of the controls needed to start playing. 
After some more researching and thinking. I have changed my mind and now eyeing on the Honeycomb lineup. This will probably be a better choice for me since down the road I will most likely be upgrading my controllers. Yes, the Honeycomb do cost more but I have read many say the price is reasonably since the quality of build is up there. Also, it will save me storage space since I do not have a lot of extra space around the home to store unwanted controllers.

Here is my question. Is $509usd too much for the Bravo? Where I am from, the price for the Bravo has been inflated. The Alpha XPC is not. I also did some calculation if I were to buy the Bravo from the USA and have it ship to me. The price after shipping and possibly duty tax will come up close not to mention the chances of the package getting lost in transit.

Are you certain that price is not for both the Honeycomb Alpha Yoke and Honeycomb Bravo Throttle Quadrant as a bundle?  If not would you please indicate who is asking that price so the remainer of us are aware?  Here is a more typical price.
