5 out of 5 eggsGreat Throttle

Pros: First the stick: It is a twist stick that allows you to control the rudder via the twist. Additionally, it has a trigger, a high index finger button above the trigger, two thumb buttons and a POV hat that are all solid. The sensor for the stick isn't super high resolution (like a TM Warthog, etc.), so you won't get incredible accuracy, but it's good enough for most games that you would play with a stick. There is a tension adjustment rheostat-like knob on the bottom which is great. Lastly, if you don't like the stick twist, you can disable it using the allen key attached to the underside of the stick to tighten a hex nut on the right side of the stick near where it meets the base.

The Throttle: The truly unique thing about this throttle is the rocker for rudder pedals on the front of the throttle. It is VERY well designed and works perfectly if you don't like using stick twist for rudder control. There are 6 buttons on the throttle, and it also has a neutral (50%) detent.

Cons: Tough to get back in to the packaging if you're moving to a new house...had to watch an unboxing video to figure it out.

Other Thoughts: You can also use the allen key on the bottom to tightly attach the throttle and stick bases together. There are two hex nuts on the bottom of the stick base that you tighten after you fit the bases together. Or, you can separate them and comfortably sit on the wire between the two with the throttle on the left and the stick on the right. The wire for the USB connection to the PC comes out of the throttle base.

Nothing beats this stick at this price point for versatility of rudder control (the rudder rocker on the throttle alone makes this stick worth trying out). There isn't another throttle on the market like it. The center detent on the throttle is also a huge plus for games that have both forward and reverse thrust, like space sims, mechwarrior online, etc. Other higher end throttles only come with idle and afterburner detents at the extreme ends of the axis.

5 out of 5 eggsGreat Flight Stick!

Pros: This stick is a great introduction into using a HOTAS for most flying and battle games. I bought this item for Elite:Dangerous and I must say a huge improvement was immediately felt. The action and response time is flawless and it's also very comfortable and doesn't produce sweaty, clammy hands after a few hours of use. I was very impressed with the amount of buttons and customization I could achieve with this stick and I look forward to using it for many years ahead...(unless it's replaced by a Saitek Rhino, shhh don't tell my Thrustmaster I said that)

Cons: If I had to chose any, I would love a few more buttons for customization, in Elite's case another joypad for headlook mode, but that's really digging there's absolutely nothing wrong with this flight stick.

Other Thoughts: Getting to know this flights stick and what you can do with it involves the internet and videos, the packaging leaves a lot to be told. I would also like to have had a choice in color, being extrememly picky at this point, an all black edition would be golden.

4 out of 5 eggsMust have for Elite: Dangerous

Pros: As the title says, I purchased this for playing Elite: Dangerous. This is the first joystick I've ever used, and I'm in love.
- More buttons than I require.
- Easy to setup and use
- Immersive
- Great value for the price

Cons: The flight stick makes a creaking/squeaky noise ever so slightly when in use. Kind of annoying, hence the loss of one egg.

Other Thoughts: I personally play with the thruster and stick connected together, sitting on my lap. When i had the unit separated on my desk, it felt uncomfortable. The cord in between the two pieces is really rigid, so getting things in the right position was impossible.

5 out of 5 eggsT.Flight Hotas X & Elite

Pros: Works great, Installed fast and no problems at all!

Cons: Cord is a bit short, my gaming keyboard is to big to fit between the throttle and joystick.

Other Thoughts: Bought this exclusively for Elite Dangerous, Works great for it, found some bindings on the forums I liked and had to do some extra setups but I now don't use the keyboard at all during gaming

5 out of 5 eggsEntry-level HOTAS with no entry-level cons

Pros: If you think you need a HOTAS but dont need one to match you authentic cockpit-themed computer setup, or just feel the need to shell out several hundred dollars, then this one is for you.

Cons: a bit too light and therefore easily tilted off of desk

Other Thoughts: Could use more buttons

2 out of 5 eggsOne of the buttons doesn't work, otherwise fine

Pros: Good value for the price. Acceptable performance.

Cons: The "5" button on the throttle doesn't work, and I'm not going to pay $20 to ship a defective item back to Newegg for to replace a $48 purchase.

The cable connecting the throttle and joystick could be a few inches longer. It's just barely too short to place my keyboard (with numberpad) in between them.

5 out of 5 eggsWork right out the box

Pros: Somewhat better then I expected. So win here.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: Bought this for Elite Dangerous. I was setting up the keys and what not. Then I realize there was an option that I can just change it straight to THRUSTMASTER T.Flight Hotas X Joystick with preset settings. Then I spent another 20mins customizing it. Now it is perfect!

5 out of 5 eggsThrustmaster Hotas X review

Pros: Great Design, you can tell this isn't the first iteration and Thrustmaster has been doing this for a while. There are a lot of little things that are really well designed. The fact it comes apart, there is a little place for the excess wire that runs between the throttle and stick, there is an Allen wrench that is included for if you want to lock it together. There is an adjustment to tighten the stick tension. The buttons are layed out fairly well, definitely no complaints. Win 7 picked it up as soon as I plugged it in, no drivers to mess with.

Cons: If I had a complaint it would be they could maybe add a few more buttons on the base. There is a fair amount of buttons on the controller, but its always nice to be able to map some more functions.

Other Thoughts: Others have made a point it feels a little light or feels kind of cheap. This is my first hotas, so I have no other reference, but its plastic, to me it feels solid enough, but its not real heavy.

For 50 bucks this is a great controller, and I am really happy with it thus far.

4 out of 5 eggsSurprisingly Solid for the Price

Pros: -Very high quality construction. Doesn't feel flimsy or cheap.
-Plug and play installation. Has a driver package but it doesn't appear to be explicitly required.
-Throttle and stick can either be attached together or used as two separate pieces.
-Supports both PC and PS3 with the flick of a switch.
-Buttons can be remapped in custom setups that save to memory in the stick itself.
-Using the Home button when attached to a PC is a quick and easy toggle for the rudder twist function.

Cons: -May not have enough buttons to support exclusively controlling with the stick in all games.
-Cable that runs between throttle and stick when separated is much too short and hard wired so you can't extend it easily.
-Remapping function is confusing and unintuitive. Can only be done on the stick and not through software.

Other Thoughts: I purchased this stick for Elite: Dangerous and eventually for other space games. I have to say, it's an incredibly good value. It's very rare that you see something this cheap that's also this well built. This feels more solid than the Saitek X-52, despite being less than half the price. Unfortunately, playing Elite: Dangerous purely on the stick is not possible due to it not having quite as many buttons, an advantage the Saitek sticks have. I also wish the cable that ran between the throttle and stick modules was either longer or that they gave you the option to extend it with USB extension cables and the like. I can't use it as far apart as I'd like right now and extending the cable would require taking it apart and obviously I don't want to void the warranty.

Beyond this and the confusing button remapping function (which most people won't need anyway), this is the best beginner flight stick I've ever seen and the price is fantastic. I whole heartedly recommend this for space game enthusiasts or if you're just starting out with flight sims.
