Summary: I purchased this bad boy because I recently was gifted the game Elite Dangerous. I wanted a HOTAS styled setup, and this seemed to be a great middleground for price and flexability. My only major worry was the size. I have large hands, and most things tend to feel small in them.
Excerpt: I bought the T. Flight HOTAS X especially to play Elite: Dangerous. It is a really great control system for the game, allowing full control of all essential controls with room to spare. The stick moves very smoothly.
Excerpt: Was looking for a good flight stick throttle combo and came across this great product . I read the reviews that had so many for this product , all i can say that has not already been said is , this is a great product for the price , i use it every day for msfs ( Microsoft flight simulator ) and this...
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Setup, Good Price, Good quality, Improved Game Play, Out Of The Box, Thrustmaster Name You Can, Trust
Cons: Are A Bit Short But, Cable That Connects The 2, Workable
Excerpt: The low end of the HOTAS market this is, none the less, a credible game controller. You can lock out the twist rudder control on the joystick and use the paddle on the throttle (3 axis), or use the twist and assign the paddle to another function (4 axis).
Excerpt: The Hotas X Flightstick is a great and low-cost stick that's easy to use, has complete hands-off operation of flight sims. The throttle isn't the most responsive, and the hat has run into some compatibility issues, but overall the stick and the operation is smooth and responsive.
Would be a great joystick, but it has a huge flaw.

Summary: I got this stick to play Elite Dangerous.I was really excited for the game, and it was a huge reason why I bought this stick and also bought an Oculus Rift. The trouble is... the stick has a HUGE deadzone problem. I made a video to demonstrate it.
Excerpt: Purchased for use on iMac to play Warbirds and X-Plane. All buttons function, both twist and rocker available as separate channels. Feels sturdy. I like that the throttle has a center detente instead of at the end of the throw like on the Thurstmaster Top Gun, but would prefer no detente at all.
Excerpt: this was sold out in every pplace i looked except here still cheap i think i got it for $ bucks and works amazing been using it for elite dangerous and arma 3 and i love it!!!! amazing work guys keep it up!!!!
Pros: Cheap, Easy To Use, Fast Setup, Improved Game Play
Cons: Have To Set Up Threw Game, No Control Software
Excerpt: I use this with Elite: Dangerous, and it has greatly improved by flying skills. I was mouse and keyboard before (which works fine) but this makes flight much more intuitive. Combat has gotten much easier, and the POV switch is excellent for menus.
