Product description

Product Description

Thrustmaster is thrilled to launch its first civil aviation-related gaming accessory, officially licensed by Airbus, for an intuitive and realistic flight experience. This ergonomic replica of the Airbus sidestick (A320/A320neo type, 1:1 scale) features 12 remappable action buttons offering a multitude of possibilities, plus a built-in throttle axis with thrust reverser mechanism (a unique feature on airliners). The design of the joystick’s head is both versatile and modular, thanks to the swappable joystick head button modules. You can easily adjust the sidestick’s configuration before each takeoff, to meet your requirements: captain, co-pilot, or with the sidestick in the central position for solo flight. The rudder can be used by rotating the sidestick’s handle, to make flying easier for multitasking pilots. This rudder function built into the sidestick’s handle also includes a locking system for a more realistic commercial flight experience. The TCA Sidestick Airbus Edition features Thrustmaster’s celebrated proprietary H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology) system, ensuring even more realistic sensations thanks to magnetic sensors providing up to 14-bit resolution. This contactless magnetic sensor technology, with no potentiometers, gives the sidestick an unlimited lifespan. The product is compatible with PC (Windows 10, 8).

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted this is back in stock - more than met my expectations
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 23 January 2021
As PC joysticks seemed to have been sold out everywhere for the last few months, for my daily fix of MS FS2020 I'd been making do with my 10 year old Speedlink Black Widow flight stick. It was clunky, with one of the springs broken and made an already complex simulation more tricky than it should have been.
So, when I saw this Thrustmaster TCA joystick was finally back in stock, at a sensible price, I snapped it up straight away.
It's simple plug-and-play and MS FS2020 detected it and mapped the controls immediately.
There are 16 programmable buttons, which is sufficient for the majority of commonly used FS 2020 controls.
The mapped default controls all feel very intuitive and the default degree of sensitivity for the main flight controls and throttle is spot-on and shouldn't require any tweaking.
The difference between my old joystick and this was remarkable!
Had the Warthog HOTAS been in stock, I would probably have bought that instead. Despite this being of plastic construction, it feels fairly robust and has certainly met my expectations. At a 6th of the price of the Warthog, it has saved me a fair chunk of money too.
Excellent product that I can recommend most highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great controller / Terrible throttle implementation
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 27 August 2021
So what can you say about a joystick??? I was quite excited about trying this stick after my previous Thrustmaster T.Flight broke.....those potentiometers don't last forever. This stick however uses a totally different system for sensing movement which is so much better. As a heavy X-Plane user I was hoping the control of the A319/A321 would improve ever so slightly. Here's my opinion...

-- Installation on Windows 10 --
Install the drivers as it makes switching between mode1/2throttle easier.
Don't install the SMART software unless you really need it.

-- Pitch/roll/yaw axis --
Much better than the potentiometer models
There is plenty of travel in all directions
Yaw can be locked if you have pedals

-- Buttons --
Loads of buttons and all work well although you sometimes need to be very positive and press in the centre of the buttons located on the base.

-- Left / Right handed switching --
This is easy to switch. Personally I prefer right handed mode.
A small screwdriver is needed to swap the buttons. Remember to switch the button underneath the base to left or right

-- Throttle --
Where do I start. Thrustmaster have tried to make this "clever" and failed miserably. There are 2 modes. Mode1 is a standard throttle so the bottom stop is idle and the top stop is full throttle. Mode2 is designed for aircraft with reversers and moves the idle position about 5mm forward of the bottom stop as well as adding an additional button to the bottom position. The idea is that you map "toggle reversers" to this extra button. So you reduce the throttle to idle passing over the threshold, then move the slider to the bottom on touchdown to trigger the reversers, then slide all the way forward for full throttle reverse......then to idle, then to the bottom to turn off the reversers....then back to idle. This seems like such a great idea but it's actually rubbish for one simple reason. Thrustmaster didn't engineer the physical idle detent point correctly so you can't actually feel the stop point. You can see in the picture the recess for the detent, and also the piece of plastic which is supposed to provide resistance at the idle point. It just doesn't work as it needs to be sprung. What ends up happening is you're constantly trying to work out if you're are at idle, or if you've set the reversers off. I went back to mode1 and assigned the reversers to a button and have no issues. The throttle range and sensitivity in mode1 is excellent.

In summary, a great controller with a terrible (mode2) throttle implementation.
