Thrustmaster T. Flight HOTAS X
Key Features
  • Replica Joystick
  • Detachable Throttle
  • POV Hat Switch
  • USB Plug-and-Play
The T. Flight HOTAS X from Thrustmaster is a programmable joystick and throttle that is compatible with PCs and PS3 systems for realistic flight simulation. It conveniently plugs directly into the USB port on your system for instant takeoff. The HOTAS (Hands on Throttle and Stick) joystick features a large throttle that you can use to control the acceleration of your aircraft. The throttle is detachable, so you can detach it to re-create authentic piloting conditions.

Depending on your style of gaming, you might like an ultra-sensitive joystick that responds to slight touches. With a firmer joystick, it offers more resistance when you move it. The resistance of the T. Flight HOTAS X is adjustable in order to adapt to your personal preferences.

With the rudder function, a plane corresponds to the pedals used by the pilot to turn the steering, allowing the plane to pivot around its vertical axis to run the plane left or right. The rudder function is accessible on the joystick or via the rocking button on the throttle. On Playstation 3 and PC in "4 axes" mode, the rocking button is combined with the handle's rotation. On a PC in "5 axes" mode, the rocking button is independent of the handle's rotation and therefore provides an additional progressive axis.

When you're in the middle of a crucial operation, seeing your placement is important. The joystick features a POV hat switch to let you instantly view everything that's going on around your plane, in games that support this function. Different views are programmable like rear, left, right and external views.

Inside the joystick, an internal chip saves all of your "MANUAL PRESET" programming even when the joystick is switched off or disconnected. You can save a different manual preset for each platform used. With the "MAPPING" button, you perform programming like switching the position of buttons, switching axes between themselves or switching the two directions of the same axis.

Thrustmaster HOTAS X Reviews

Great Budget Controller

By Sean
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2022-03-25

Overall, this is a well built flight stick and throttle. A nice feature is that the two parts separate so you can have the throttle on your left and joystick on your right. The whole thing is plastic, but it doesn't feel too cheap. Another item to note is that although the throttle sometimes feels like it slides too easily, it holds its position and is nice to use. I use this for playing DCS and it works pretty well. I am able to map the needed controls for the SU-25T to all of the buttons on the controller. If you're looking to get started with flight sims, this is a good choice.

Great starter HOTAS

Great quality for the price, ample amount of buttons for assigning bindings. Stock is not as weighted as I'd like, but having the throttle linked helps.

Excellent for flight simulator

I gave it 4 out of5 because this is the second one I've bought . The first one lasted about 3 years before the yaw gave out and was not fixable. Easy to program and works excellent!

Very well made product for the price

Bough it for MS Flight Simulator and for the price I paid I love it. Very sturdy, well made product. All the flight basic controls covered and you can customize button assignments obviously. If you do not want to spend tons of money on fancy flight control gear this is the one to buy.

Exactly What I Wanted

Great combo of quality and price. Don't let the price fool you. It is undervalued. would buy again.

Too loose

By Robin

I probably have to get an expensive HOTAS as this one is way too loose even changing the null setting. I use it for Elite Dangerous and I can do way better with my mouse and keyboard unfortunately.

back to my favorite

Just a great piece of kit. When my first Hotas X quit working after 7 years I went to yoke and rudder setup for FS. But I still love the feel of the stick and the fast setup and small footprint, not to mention reasonable price for a great product.

Cheap HOTAS that is 100% worth it.

By Lance

HOTAS is high quality and there is no creek and play in the system. I've played a lot of DCS and IL2 on it and so far it has worked great. 100% recommend for an entry level HOTAS.
