The Thrustmaster F/A-18C Hornet HOTAS Add-On Grip is a replica of the well-known McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C flight stick and has been specially designed for the demanding flightsimmer with Boeing's permission. The stick weighs 720 grams and is made from high-quality sustainable materials. This not only ensures that the stick gives an authentic Hornet feel, but also that the stick has a long service life.
The flight stick is an Add-On that can be used with the Thrustmaster Warthog foot, or with the Thrustmaster Cougar foot (not included).
The F/A-18C Hornet has nineteen action buttons that are fully programmable. Because Thrustmaster has been working for a long time on the development of this addon, the feel of the buttons is comparable to the buttons of the "real" F/A-18C Hornet flight stick. A good example of this is the realistic 2-step trigger.
In addition, the Hornet joystick naturally has a Point of View (POV) hat switch, two 4-way hat switches with push button and, among other things, two pink push buttons. More than enough to have all functions within reach at most critical moments.
With the Thrustmaster T.A.R.G.E.T. (Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor) software, the possibilities to customise the joystick are endless. With T.A.R.G.E.T., you can program the joystick whichever way you see fit, but if you don’t have any programming experience, you can of course choose the default settings (and adjust them).
The Hornet stick integrates automatically, via the F / A-18C module, with Digital Combat Simulator (DCS). The realism of DCS and the realistic feeling of the flight stick ensure an ultimate flight experience during missions and dogfights. The Add-On Grip is of course also compatible with other flight simulator games.
