Stick for Airbus lefthanded

Recommended Posts

Cheers,

 

Does anybody has recommendations for a lefthanded stick what could be used for an Airbus. The most Joysticks are righthander? Anybody has a good idea maybe?

 

Thank you

oh that´s easy. Take this one for the captain side (which is left handed)

and put this on the VPC Warbird Base from VIRPIL controls.

This is very near at the real one which i had touched and moved already.

340 Euro for a stick. Holy...      Is there not anything from Logitech or any similar supplier?

No. There are not many flightsimmers that want to fly with their left hand. It takes Airbus pilots rather some time to get used to that.

Thanks Mathijs, 

 

i found something from Thrustmaster, but this comes only in a combination of two sticks. But Virpil has indeed something. But the pricing is crazy. I will sleep a night over that....

 

Thank you..

Here you go!  Only $53 USD.

If the above link doesn't work for you, then simply search for Thrustmaster T16000M.  

 

Incidentally, this (and other joysticks) was found by Google Searching for "Left Hand Joystick".

 

Best wishes!

Shouldn´t be a too big challenge for you, if you can cope with this nice slice of meat in your avatar. ;)

Ok, i slept over it. 

Oh man i love steaks. Maybe i need to reduce that habit a little to safe some peanuts for that flightstick... Time to go to the steakhouse tomorrow. You made me hungry.....I would go today but my wife leaves me alone with the kids today 😬. Hey ok, time for simming tonight ;)

 

Are you sure the 4 im Pott stick is compatible with the one from Virpil. Cause i see a plug in the center and at the stick comes along with a long cable at the lower spot

. How can i connect that together? I mean can you confirm it fits together?

Hey Dave,

The one from Thrustmaster T16000 model comes only as left hander in a combination with a second stick. Ok then you have a spare...

No sir, the one I linked to comes with the left handed pieces that you can swap out with the right handed ones.  At least that's what it said in the Item Description (I've never owned the TM 16000, so I'm relying on the Item Description).

There are different bundles of the TM16000:

only one stick (changeable left/right)

two sticks (space)

one stick + thrust (Hotas)

hotas+rudder

 

I use myself the TM16000 left handed.

I also have one Thrustmaster T16000M, set up for the left hand.  I didn't have to buy 2 sticks or anything else.

 

The one I bought can be switched from left to right handed pretty easily.  I find it the most reasonably priced attempt to mimic the Airbus sidestick.
