Recommend me a HOTAS please )

Good day forumites I need your input if you don't mind. Mrs Tolemac is looking at buying me a HOTAS for my 50th birthday on Friday "Old bugger I know ". The only two I have looked are the Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X and the Logitech X52. I am a leftie so I think that would count out the T-Flight. I will be playing Elite Dangerous. Many thanks in Advance. Budget is £130 max

Tolemac

You want mine the Thrustmaster 16000m as the joystick comes with a left peice in it and you can possibly still use the TWCS that you put with it with your right hand and Happy Birthday I just turned 51 on Saturday

Are we going all flight school and forming an OC3D wing. Guess I should start looking at one too, though I'll probs buy the warthog.

I think SuB would be top of the food chain for this, he's been playing ED longer than anyone I know.

Ooh. Elite Dangerous squadron. Sounds good to me. Have we got a Private Group? I tend to play in Solo at the moment but it'd be nice to interface with some people I can trust.

I'm sure we can make one . There are a few of us that game and chat together from here and there is a discord channel. So shouldn't be too much hassle . I'm just learning mind so bear with me.

Thank you all the X52 seems the one i'm drawn to even though i'm left handed I will learn.
