Hey there.

If you’ve clicked on this tab, you’re obviously looking for a reason or two on why you should shop for your gaming goodies at Gamer Gear Direct, rather than those other online stores.

This is a good entry level flight stick for combat flight sims. I haven't used it yet for FSX, but since the throttle is left handed, it's like you're flying as the FO, not the captain. The joystick has a tension knob on the bottom that allows for adjustment of ease of travel. At first, I used it on the tightest setting, feeling that I use a lot of pressure to move the stick, but soon realized that the normal, non-tense setting had enough resistance to balance my inputs. I'm sad the throttle doesn't have a tension setting, as it seems to just fly forward or backward at the easiest touch. The button placement seems to be alright, with the design being for large hands. Occassionally, I feel the button clicks are annoyingly loud. Additionally, the base of the joystick has developed a creaking noise during input. Might need some grease? Since the stick is plastic, I imagine this is the cause of the noise. Although the stick is plastic, the base is heavy enough not to have to be bolted down, which is a concern to some gamers. The buttons are plenteous and in the right location for finger clicks mostly. Mapping is off the charts easy with three sets of key bindings for each key if you set one or two buttons as a shift key. There is no need for third party software to configure the bindings, though you may occasionally want to use the properties menu to calibrate the stick. For $50, you cannot get more satisfaction and functionality from an inexpensive flight stick. I'd recommend th.


This item was purchased to replace a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. I much prefer the Thrustmaster as it has a lot going for it, including a large, realistic sized separate throttle lever. It is also much easier and natural to input the rudder control via the rocker switch on the back of the throttle lever, rather than twisting the joystick for rudder input. This feature makes it a lot easier to control single engine piston fighters which can swing quite a bit on take off. That said, the stick can be set to twist the stick for rudder input if that is your chosen way of flying.The pre-set buttons work well as already set up, but can be custom set should you so desire. I particulary like the way that the elevator trim is set up the two buttons falls naturally in place for the forefinger. Also worth mentioning is the center button on top of the joy stick which as a pre-set, gives different views without having to input keyboard stokes....much quicker!!The tension of the 'feel' of the stick can be adjusted via a knob underneath the joy stick. I must admit that I do not like a lot of tension, but that is my preference.The only slight niggle is that there is a bit of a 'gate' when the throttle lever hits the upper end of the throttle response. I guess that this depicts the 'afterburner' section if you are flying fast jets!This is a GREAT product and very well priced. A big thumbs up!


After reading the Elite: Dangerous Forums on the subject, I purchased this for myself over a year ago. I am elite in both Exploration and Trading (both have been primarily achieved with this HOTAS) and competent in Combat. I have 370 hours in game. I have no CQC rank.Here's my take. First, you have a choice to make. KMB (keyboard and mouse) or HOTAS. It is completely viable to stay with keyboard and mouse in this game. In fact, it's better for advanced combat. But it's (to me) less intuitive, and less immersive. I learned default KMB first. Know that you're playing a space simulator, not an e-sport. PVP is not balanced in the game, at all (I suppose it may be in CQC...good luck getting a match). Be aware that relearning controls is a TOUGH thing to do in this game. But for immersion and enjoyment, nothing quite beats a stick and throttle for flying a spacecraft. So, once you've made that decision, stick with it. I will assume for the remainder of this review that you want a HOTAS.On to the HOTAS itself. It works, and works incredibly for its price! $50 is a great price for an entry level joystick.Just two suggestions that will improve your experience. First and foremost, I STRONGLY recommend that you find a control scheme online for elite dangerous. The one I use is called Vic_Elduc's and it is efficient. I have used it almost the entire time I have played.Once you have mapped your keys (set aside 30 minutes the first time you do this due to testing and ge.


So, I bought a used one from an Amazon Warehouse. Essentially, an opened box returned item. It saved me 15 bucks (36 bucks for the throttle and stick) and it works like a champ.All said and done, at the retail price point of 50 bucks, this thing is awesome. I had a Saitek about 10 years ago and this thing makes that joystick look like garbage. The quality of this joystick is very high, enough so that 50 bucks feels like a deal. The gameplay is smooth and works as advertised.Glad that the joystick and throttle separate. Wish they could separate about 2 inches farther, but fits between my keyboard without a problem.


This HOTAS set is perfect for people that are flying or gaming on a budget. The build quality of this set is terrific, which is what I've come to expect from Thrustmaster products. There are plenty of buttons on the stick and throttle quadrant to make sure you'll be able to get to all your controls with ease whether you're flying a Cessna 172, an F-18, Boeing 737-800, or a starship! The stick and throttle move fluidly and are very accurate, and the stick twists to the left or right as well, which I've found very useful for controlling the rudder or nosewheel on the ground. Using this on X-Plane 11 is just a dream, quite honestly, and with this price point its really hard, if not impossible to beat. I previously used a Logitech Attack 3 stick before upgrading to this and I don't think I'll ever be going back.
