Product Description

Thrustmaster T-16000M (16K X 16K Stick Resolution) PC Flight Stick. H.E.A.R.T. HALLEFFECT ACCURATE TECHNOLOGY is the name of the new technology developed by Thrustmaster. This technology, built into the T.16000 M joystick, relies on 3D Hall Effect magnetic sensors located on the stick. These sensors deliver precision levels 256 times greater than most current systems, allowing over 16,000 different values on each axis ¿ i.e. over 268 million values spread out over the joystick's various directions! This technology also offers an additional benefit: by removing all friction from the device, it removes any risk of mechanical wear, thus guaranteeing consistent precision in time. The joystick's precision is once again enhanced by the absence of dead zones, as evidenced by the green backlighting that illuminates as soon as the stick is moved. Thanks to the presence of a 2.8 mm diameter helical spring, the joystick offers firm control and allows linear and smooth actions, enabling users to maintain a consistent course, free from sudden corrections or control losses (Patent Pending). The device is indeed fully Plug & Play, and benefits from a number of predefined controls suited to the most famous games and simulators ¿ for immediate, hassle-free take-off! The fully ambidextrous T.16000M is suited to all potential joystick users, both left-handed and right-handed: its 3 sections ¿ including 2 removable parts and one part rotating over a 180 Degree angle ¿ allow users to tailor the joystick to their use. Likewise, the 16 action buttons featured on the T.16000M can be configured for left-handed or right-handed use, by means of a switch, for optimum ergonomics. The joystick's weighted base ensures much-appreciated stability during quick manoeuvres. Finally, inaddition to this incredible versatility, piloting with a joystick in each hand is now possible in all games supporting the simultaneous use of 2 joysticks.

They are cool sticks and probably one of the most popular out there.
Josh Lee
Every plane I have tested the T-16000M on has provided much more pleasing control of the aircraft than any other flight stick I have owned.
It's got rudder control, throttle control, a very accurate stick and plenty of buttons.

The sensors are good: couldn't find any deadzones in the stick movement. The resistance and springback also feels great.

However, the buttons are all very flimsy and cheap (including the hat and trigger), which is regrettable. Also, the stick itself feels a tad too big, but that might be due to my small hands.

Twisting motion of the stick (for rudder use) has slight detection problems. If you gently twist the stick one way until it stops, it seems like that's as far as it goes but a sensor readout will show that you haven't yet reached 100%. Applying more pressure will force it through the difference, but then it makes me paranoid that I'll break the stick.

The base is large enough to be stable for most maneuvers (left, right, and back), but not when you push the stick all the way forward, it will lift the whole thing off the table unless you have your other hand on the base holding it down.

It seems like dust can easily collect at the base of the stick where it pivots, which might inhibit its smooth motions (it comes pre-lubed, which seems necessary by design). So I recommend that if you buy this stick, use a cover for when its not in use.

Overall, it's pretty decent. I don't have a very good base for comparison since the last stick I owned was a Microsoft Sidewinder way back in 1996. I chose this stick over the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick because I heard a lot of complaints about Logitech crapping out after half a year of use. So far I've logged 30 hours of flight time in Falcon 4.0 and about 10 hours of flight time in FSX, and the Thrustmaster still responds the same as on day 1. Granted I haven't had it for that long, so we'll see :)

I really wish Microsoft would make joysticks again, as there's a serious lack of solid 100-150 dollar joysticks that provide the precision needed for flight sims in an ergonomic package..

That out of the way, I've been using Logitech joysticks since the old Sidewinder days and found them lacking in the precision and durability department. I saw their G940 system but most of the people who bought it use different pedals and the throttle controls had some issues as well, so I opted to buy things separately. Unless you go extremely high end like the Warthog, you're pretty much stuck with the the T-1600M for a reasonably priced, precision joystick. The joystick uses HALL effect sensors to precisely map out positions. With this, I can not be happier. My aim precision in Rise of Flight has gone up drastically since going with this joystick.

What I don't like about it, is that they designed it for left and right handed users, and because of this, it satisfies neither. The thumb rest pictured is beyond annoying for my hand and the hand rest at the bottom of the stick caused my right hand to get cramped. Into the box I went for the spare parts. They include another replacement panel for the other side so you can switch it to a left hand joystick. I simply added the second flat panel to get rid of the thumb rest. That solved that annoyance.. As for the bottom of the joystick, the hand rest does not come off, it simply turns. What I had to do to relieve my hand from cramps was to rotate that so that the hand rest aimed forward. The end of that aims upward at a curved angle, and I believe that was the culprit. With it facing forward I have had no issues with it.

The Logitech and my 15 year old Microsoft joysticks had far better button lay outs as well.

I bought this joystick for use with modern combat flight simulators, namely Black Shark and Flaming Cliffs 2.
The joystick is very sensitive and accurate, and responds to even the slightest of touches. The stick is comfort and the button placement is OK. For right-handed people, reaching the right buttons can be difficult, and it usually means letting your hand off the stick, but it's better than not having them at all. I do not like the fact that the button are not labeled - none of them are. The throttle slider has a low resolution - it's sensitivity is not nearly in par with that of the stick's.
Using Windows 7 (and probably Vista and XP as well, though I do not have them to try), the joystick is automatically recognized and installed in 10 seconds. The hat switch, placed on the stick, is placed perfectly right - it is extremely easy to be reached using the thumb, during flight. I have read many people mention that the buttons feel cheap, plastic and tacky - while these claims or some of them are true, this does not derive from your ability to use them with ease. The twist rudder control works smoothly, accurately and feels very natural.

Overall, this joystick does everything you'd probably need from a joystick, and its main features, packed with its very affordable price, should be enough for flying even the most accurate flight simulations out there. It's got rudder control, throttle control, a very accurate stick and plenty of buttons. Just pick your sim, and you're ready to fly. Well, after you've read the sim's manual or follow some basic flight tutorials, that is.

This will be kind of lengthy and i think one of my first reviews ever. But i hope to help guide your purchase of a flight stick as best as possible with my experiences and the amount of time i spent researching and sweating on what joystick to buy...

I am a flight-sim weekend warrior. My main use for the stick has been the game IL2: Cliffs of Dover playing on the ATAG servers w/ the team fusion mod. I also use it for War Thunder if i play full real battles (whatever they renamed it to..), and occasionally DCS A-10 if i feel like punching my computer trying to figure out how to do anything.

Used in conjunction with: Saitek X-52 throttle body, CH Pro Rudder Pedals, Track IR5

Quick review: I LOVE this stick. Until i have the career and extra cash to dump on a Thrustmaster Warthog (like $400), i will be using this stick without a doubt!

- GREAT tension, zone control, and return to center. the use of the halleffect is just impressive
- Ambidextrous for you lefties out there. I am mostly left handed in life and though i dont use it for the joystick, i get where them even thinking about us lefties is very generous. Well played Thrustmaster.
-It has a good feeling twist rudder setup for you without pedals
-The buttons are all crisp and have a good feel to them and within acceptable finger length, even for people with smaller hands like me. The included slide throttle feels good and have no problem with it (i use it for engine mixture)
-The trigger is crisp and not flimsy feeling
-There is a descent number of buttons to model things to. I would suggest labeling the buttons on the base if you plan on using them for certain things like landing gear ect.
-PRICE: for $50 it's well worth the value.
