Product information "Thrustmaster - TCA Sidestick Airbus Edition"

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).

Enjoy the unique feeling of piloting an Airbus A320, thanks to the ambidextrous and modular design (with swappable joystick head button modules) of the TCA Sidestick Airbus Edition.

This ergonomic replica of the Airbus sidestick (A320/A320neo type, 1:1 scale) features 12 remappable action buttons offering a multitude of possibilities, plus a built-in throttle axis with thrust reverser mechanism (a unique feature on airliners).

Innovative, versatile design

  • Fully ambidextrous and modular joystick, with 4 swappable joystick head button modules that let you choose between 4 different configurations (right or left seat of an airliner, narrow or wide center stick configuration for small aircraft)
  • Ergonomic replica of the Airbus sidestick (A320 type), with built-in throttle axis and thrust reverser mechanism

Fly with greater levels of realism and immersion

  • Exclusive precision, thanks to H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology) magnetic sensors:
    • Surgical precision (i.e. 14-bit resolution: 16,384 x 16,384 values!) for the pitch axis and roll axis
    • The coil spring (0.1” / 2.8 mm in diameter) inside the stick provides firm, linear and fluid tension
  • New locking mechanism lets you disable the joystick handle’s rotation, if used in conjunction with a rudder controller (sold separately)
  • 17 action buttons with “braille”-style identification:
    • 12 buttons on the base, 4 on the stick, and 1 virtual button on the throttle (bottom 20% of the axis)
    • New 8-direction point of view hat switch, designed for extreme precision
  • 4 independent axes, with twist rudder (controlled by rotating the joystick handle)
  • Selector switch lets you configure the 12 buttons on the base, in either the right-handed or left-handed position
  • Weighted base for enhanced stability

Native integration in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020

  • Plug and play: the device is automatically recognized in the game

Compatible with T.A.R.G.E.T software

  • Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor software: load or create specific mapping presets for each aircraft, to extend or save all of your favorite settings

Awards/Reviews:

Conclusion by FSNews.eu:
"In conclusion, if you’re currently using one of Thrustmaster’s previous cheap joysticks, I highly recommend you to upgrade as this is a whole new level of simulation. For the price of approximately €70, it’s also a very good joystick for newcomers to the flight simulation. The sidestick recognizes even the smallest movement, feels very nice and sturdy, and although it is plastic, it feels like something with a price of over €100!"

Conclusion by FSElite.net:
"The TCA Sidestick Airbus Edition is a great replication of its real-world counterpart. The Sidestick is of great overall quality but it does lack some finishing touches to the throttle and the buttons set in the base. I would recommend the TCA Sidestick to any airbus lover that was looking for their first joystick or to enhance their simulator experience. The use of Hall Effect sensors and ergonomics add the precision and comfort needed to operate any aircraft effectively."
