With the prevalence of Space Sims and a resurgence in the Flight Sim market thanks to DCS World, it's time to take a look at Thrustmasters latest HOTAS.

Wow, that's a lot of dough. Excuse my ignorance (and tiredness leading to me just skimming the review) but what sort of games does this work well with? Just wondered, 'cause the last stick I used was the MS Feedback one. And it was very good I must say

Really good review Bryan. I'd be jumping on one of these if I didn't already have an X-52. A point to note is the throttle is also available separately for anyone that already has a T16000 joystick.

It's a shame the throttle isn't reversible for lefties but if you're using the thumb hatswitch for lateral and vertical thrust and the toggle rudder for yaw control using your right hand for pitch and roll is probably pretty convenient anyways.

I've often wondered about Airbus flight decks with the stick on the left for the pilot and on the right for first officer. I wonder if the flight crew always sit that way or whether the captain calls shotgun.

It's interesting there seem to be two schools of thought on space sim control - depending on whether you have a traditional flight control upbringing (pitch/roll) or console style (pitch/yaw) as the main controls. Like anything I guess you adapt pretty quickly but I can't get out of the habit of rolling my ship before pitching in the direction I want. Must be less efficient in combat you'd think. The Last Starfighter had it right - dual sticks for gunnery all the way.

/end derail

I can vouch for it working well with Elite Dangerous and DCS World's products, the sensor upgrade in it is worthit over the x-52 series, it's on-par with the accuracy of the Warthog now just a step down on build quality

Really is a neat little stick and throttle for the money.

Was great till I got ganked on the Tutumu CG by a double team interdiction. Got away the first few times (Level 4 drive tuning FTW) but should have just left the system (or gone solo play) so it cost me about 30 mil in lost ship and cargo. Oh well that's life. I don't mind getting held up for cargo but when they just kill you for fun and don't even talk it's annoying. By the time I shipped my Vette over they'd disappeared.

Currently use a Thrustmaster T.Flight HOTAS X as my ED stick, and will definitely be upgrading to the T.16000 very soon.

Good to see a few CMDRs in here, I'm currently farming the high res sites in LP 339-7 for the current CG, and I tend to play private group to avoid griefers.
