Get ready for takeoff with the first Thrustmaster joystick to combine magnetic technology with flight controls inspired by the world of civil aviation (the Airbus A320 family). For Civil Aviation flight sim, the TCA Sidestick Airbus edition is officially licensed by Airbus making an ergonomic and accurate 1:1 scale replica.
Magnetic Technology: For unlimited lifespan and optimal precision, the TCA Flight Stick Airbus Edition incorporates the H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology) contactless magnetic sensor system from Thrustmaster, with no potentiometers and ensures optimal precision during flight sessions.
- Modular Design: Joystick's head with swappable modules, so 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.
Thrust Reverser Mechanism: The throttle built into the base of the joystick includes a thrust reverser function, a unique feature on airliners. This is a major advantage in terms of helping you master related maneuvers, and ensures that your landings are always perfectly controlled.
- 17 Action Buttons: Allows for simulation of real-life aviation Commands.
- Rudder Function: Controlled by stick rotation, 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.
Compatible With T.A.R.G.E.T Software (Included)
T.A.R.G.E.T (Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor) is a software suite that lets you test, configure and program Thrustmaster controllers.
T.A.R.G.E.T includes built-in presets for well-known games (both recent and older titles), for every compatible Thrustmaster accessory.
Add or create new presets — without any limits!
Not Limited to Airbus!
Mechanical selectors let you disable the detents and thrust reversers (to switch to linear axis mode), for flexible piloting of any type of aircraft and compatible with a wide array of flight simulators.
The stepped mode is inspired by its counterpart found on Airbus airliners, with iconic detents. Thrustmaster has devoted its 25 years of expertise in flight sim controllers to meet the growing demand from flight and space sim pilots.
Airbus TCA Aviation EcoSystem
“The Airbus TCA (Thrustmaster Civil Aviation) ecosystem offers many optional add-ons, to enhance your immersion in games.
Check out the TCA Sidestick Airbus Edition, TCA Quadrant Add-On Airbus Edition, TM Flying Clamp and the famous TFRP rudder system (all sold separately) for breathtaking flying sessions.”
The helical spring (0.1” / 2.8 mm in diameter) inside the stick provides firm, linear and smooth tension.
