Pros and cons
- Inside the stick, accurate magnetic sensors are used
- The throttle moves smoothly because it moves over a rail
- The flightstick and throttle have separate USB connections so they can be configured separately
- The TWCS is not suitable for left and right-handed use, while the stick is suitable for left and right-handed use
Hands-On Throttle and Stick
The T.16000M FCS HOTAS consists of the T.16000M FCS (Flight Control Stick) and TWCS (Thrustmaster Weapon Control System) throttle, with which you can control any type of aircraft. Thanks to the ergonomic design of both the flightstick and the throttle, this FCS HOTAS (Hands-On Throttle And Stick) is comfortable to hold.
High-end technology at a competitive price
With the T.16000M FCS you do not only operate your ailerons and elevator but, thanks to stick twist, you can also control your rudder. The joystick is equipped with 16 action buttons, a pov (point of view) hat switch, and a trigger.
Because of its eye-catching orange accents and backlight, the stick fits every cockpit.
The T.16000M FCS flightstick uses magnetic sensors without friction to be able to fly with high accuracy. This is the same high-end technology Thrustmaster uses for the Warthog HOTAS.
The coil spring (diameter of 2.8 mm) in the stick provides solid, linear and even tension.
A smoothly moving Throttle
The TWCS Throttle uses a unique system that ensures perfectly smooth movements and precision through an eight centimeter long sliding rail. The resistance of this system can be adjusted on the bottom of the throttle.
You will find an additional 14 buttons and a pov hat switch on the TWCS Throttle, meaning you have a total of 5 axes, 30 (programmable) buttons and 2 hat switches at your disposal. This provides more than enough possibilities for every virtual pilot.
T.A.R.G.E.T.’s endless possibilities
This flightsim hardware can be used with the Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor, or in short, T.A.R.G.E.T. software.
With this advanced software, the possibilities to program your hardware and to customize it are endless. If you struggle setting up your Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS by yourself, you can always use the standard profiles.
