Product Description

Product Description

Thrustmaster USB Flightstick - The only entry-level joystick with a point of view button.

Amazon.com

Sculpted to comfortably conform to the natural grip of the hand and featuring three action buttons, one trigger and a throttle, the Thrustmaster USB Joystick is an attractive and highly functional yet comparatively inexpensive control device for PC gaming. Whether you're flying a midnight bombing run over a global hot spot, blazing your way through the dark recesses of outer space or battling bumper to bumper at Indianapolis, the Thrustmaster USB Joystick has you covered, for less than half the price of an average computer game.

Though priced on par with typical entry-level sticks, Thrustmaster's most affordable joystick features a surprising number of desirable amenities. Pilots in particular will enjoy the unit's thumb-triggered 8-way toggle switch "hat", ideal for accessing alternate viewpoints in and around an aircraft. Flyers and drivers alike will love the ergonomic molded grip, convenient palm rest, and multiple button/trigger configuration. The device does not offer tactile force feedback sensations or wireless operation, though it does sport a base-mounted throttle for precise analog control of aircraft speed.

The Thrustmaster USB Joystick is compatible with all Windows-based games and all four of the most recent versions of the Windows operating system (Windows 98, ME, 2000, and XP). Thrustmaster backs the unit with a two-year warranty.

Customer Reviews

Works great and handles well.
Pamela Walker
This is a 2 axis stick, you can only control pitch and roll, no way to control the rudder.
David Coons
If you want a good cheap joystick that gets the job done this is it!

My favorite joystick broke, but I didn't want to spend $100+ for a new one. Saw this on Amazon and took a chance. Glad I did. Here's my take:
Pros: Good price
Nice features: HAT switch and throttle work well
Cons: Lightweight base
Started creaking after a day. I sprayed a little wd-40 into the shaft, no more
creaking (not recommended, by the way).
I would have given it 5 stars if the base was heavier and wider. Also the throttle has a short throw. I use this mainly for flight simulation/aerial combat games. Overall a good value.

(One point that seems to be confusing people...though this is correctly labeled as a 3-axis joystick, the third axis is a small throttle control on the base, *not* twist-control for the rudder)

When I first received the joystick, I was very happy with the quality at the price -- it's a comfortable stick (righties only), with a sufficiently sticky base that it doesn't move around on me. Within a few weeks of light to moderate use, there's already significant play in the stick (freely jiggling a couple of degrees about neutral without providing any input), which makes fine control a bit of a challenge, though overall calibration and functionality remain fine. It's adequate for my purposes (playing 20-year-old space sims), but even I would like to upgrade eventually. Still, the basics are solid enough that I'm not in any hurry to drop the big $ that will require.

Overall I think this is likely an acceptable first joystick, or a joystick for someone who isn't sure whether they'll use a joystick often enough to justify spending much money...but I think almost anyone giving it significant use will want to upgrade before long. The build quality is just fine for such an inexpensive joystick, but it seems you get what you pay for in that regard.

Exactly what I wanted, a simple 2D joystick. There is a distinct throttle lever, so it is kind of 3D. The throttle is placed so that there is no contact when using the main stick. I have two of these in order to play Descent in full joystick mode, and they work perfectly.

From the description I thought it also had rudder control in the handle via rotation. Otherwise it worked as expected.

I bought this joystick to play kerbal space program easier, I didn't want to spend $50 on a joystick I would only use for 1 game! It works great, build quality is good for what you pay for. If you want a good cheap joystick that gets the job done this is it!
