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

I have this setup, and while the joystick comes with parts for lefty conversion, the throttle won't work right handed, unless the user is dexterous enough to use controls with a pinkie finger. On the right hand side of the throttle, there are several switches and a button that are meant to be thumb-operated, not to mention it's shaped for left hand use. It would be almost impossible to work right-handed.

Nice! Enjoy Elite Dangerous, and if you really get into it, enjoy your pending divorce.

Yes you are right about the TWCS mines packed away ATM so forgot what it looked like but a lot of people are finding it better to use dual joysticks and two T16000m's would work well as you can easily convert one to left and away you go

Warthog isnt very good for ED, great for everything else. mainly because of the lack of rudder.
