Good product, comfortable, easy to install, some new drivers to download, but no big deal.My one very large gripe is that the seller simply slapped a label directly on the product packaging and threw it in the mail! Are you serious? Do you not have porch pirates wherever you live? If I hadn't been right at the door when the delivery guy showed up, I doubt I'd have ever gotten it. It likely would've walked right off my front porch. Use a box or a shipping envelope or something next time.
Very well built as what you expect from thrustmaster. Easy to remove or install when switching between grip types. My only fault would be the price. While price and quality often walk hand in hand I believe the price is a little high for just the grip. Perhaps a discount or rebate should be offered for owners of the rest of the control system as an incentive to purchase. Now, as an ultimate act of hypocrisy, I have no regrets in this purchase at all! I love it so the fact I paid for it is on me. Would also be nice to see a few other handles come out such as the F-14, or other classic aircraft. Heck, maybe offer a gift pack of 3 or 4 handles around popular holidays. Have been buying Thrustmaster gear for 20 years and still love it. Also as a retired USAF aviator, I believe there are some TM sticks which were better built than their real world counterparts.
It's is more than I expected .What a big difference the few extra millimeters in diameter makes ! Its a true 1:1 replica that make your sim driving feel that much more real or accurate .The wheel feels very high quality. The buttons are super tight and make a small but satisfying click compared to a thrustmaster f1 wheel .200 dollars is a lot of money to spend but I found it fully worth it.The only con I can think of is that the suede /alcantera appears to be glued to the rim and not stitched .I use driving gloves so I never feel the rim surface . Kind of a waste since it feels real nice to the touch.I highly recommend this wheel !
I purchased this flight stick to play AC7 on PC with and was not disappointed. At ~$80 you can’t really beat this thing. Most other flight sticks at this price point don’t offer a separate throttle control. As others have stated the cable that connects the throttle and stick is only about 2-3’, which wasn’t an issue for me at all. If you don’t hard mount it to something and have the controls separated the tension of the stick will probably make it slide around and lean, but I mainly play with them together and didn’t have to worry about that. Plug and play on PC, can’t speak to PS4 or Xbox support.
If you own the Thrustmaster Warthog stick, you'll know exactly what you're getting with this stick. The build quality is over similar quality and has a great feel and weight to it. The button all automatically import into DCS and it is very easy to use. I primarily flight the Harrier and bought this still specifically for that module and can say that it is close enough to the actual Harrier stick you won't notice.The biggest upgrades to this stick over the A-10 Warthog stick is the push button on the hats. 2 of the 4-way hats also have a push down button. Next is the WP-Increment button followed by the 2 way wheel with a click. This isn't actually on the real flight stick but it is incredibly useful especially for control the FOV and zoom on the TGP/Maverick.Any regular Harrier pilot should have this stick.
