Customer Reviews of Guillemot Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Joystick - Gaming Joystick - Cable - USB
Superior Flight Stick , And Service !!!6/8/2013
This TM HOTAS X is incredible! I have been using it heavily for a couple of weeks and i don't play arcade games i'm playing FSX ,LockOn FC 1 &2. plus some Mechwar. within 5 mins of playing i was doing maneuvers and dispatching enemies in ways i never knew I could. the stick and throttle work perfect and the overall quality and toughness is TOPS! Adjustable resistance comes in handy and tons of button mapping options too. Rakuten.com has great service and the price was unbeatable A+++ all around
nice guliiemont nice
The value is there. It's stick with lots of options you see on more expensive sticks like custom resistance joystick, plenitude of buttons and decent ergonomic design.
This is a very good stick, and is great for PS3 users or people looking for an entry level stick for their PC.
Couldn't have asked for a better product! I am very pleased with not only the quality of the items, but also the many buttons and controls that are available for you to use. I can now fly my virtual X-Plane easily. I was very happy to see that the joystick controller also turns clockwise and counterclockwise. I can count 20 programmable buttons, plus the analog levers you can see, with an additional rocker type lever on the back side of the throttle. This controller worked instantly by plugging it in to a powered 7 port USB hub which is connected to my iMac. It has a switch for dedication to a PS3 system, or for PC systems. I really love this thing, it feels good in my hands.
Great joystick-Poorly written manual5/4/2010
Had the joystick a week now and am slowly figuring it out. The manual leaves alot to be desired as I guess they tried to save money on short cuts. Some keys like the Mapping and Preset along with the SE and ST are not covered totally in the manual. Other than that it's a great stick for the price.
This is great!!!1/14/2010
When I recivied this joystick my first reaction was "damn this thing is huge!!" but when I hooked it up and flew with it my reaction changed to "wow this is comfortable to fly with!" the controls are all within the reach of my thumb and I can taxi and fly without barely ever taking my hands off the controls. Only to take my autopilot off, talk online, or change planes in FSX. although it exceeded my expectations there are some flaws. Such as a kind of "sticky keys" behavior that sometimes occurs using the hat swich, banking or using the rudders. Otherwise it's great!!!
I must say I was not prepared to get a stick this nice for the price I payed. It feels great in the hands and the buttons are well laid out allowing you to control both joystick and throttle while hitting any button with ease. It is heavy which I like and the adjustable resistance makes a big difference. I like it combined but the fact I can detach the throttle from the stick is pretty nice, as is the fact it works on my ps3 as well as my pc (I bought it for my pc). I would buy again in a heartbeat, and would even pay more. It is very precise.
Good, inexpensive alternative.4/23/2009
Good solid stick. Very comfortable. The middle detente on the throttle makes for a bit less precision than my old Saitek x52, but the much more comfortable stick and movement makes up for it. If you are looking for an inexpensive HOTAS setup, this is the way to go. If you have the money to spend, I'd still go for a Saitek x52 Pro for the larger number of programmable buttons.
Excellent addition to my gaming arsonal. Easy to setup (just plug it in) and has all the features needed to be effective in a very short time.
Well, I have not tried a flight simulator in 15 years... but I am having a ball now! This joystick was easy to set up, is made with very good quality and is a kick in the butt. I invited one of my (real) pilot friends over to give it a try and he gives it a thumbs up. This is not an "airplane specific" joystick, it can be used and enjoyed on many airplane scenarious. My son just showed me how to use it to fly a helicopter. lol. It may boast about ready to fly with Microsoft's flight simulator and PS3, but I am using it with X-Plane 9 software (also very cool). I need a faster computer to really enjoy this great product ($200 spent on an E-machine computer still works for me). Buy it and enjoy!
