Hey all,

I know that this price is not a discount, but after weeks of backorder/no stock across many vendors, Best Buy has this Thrustmaster HOTAS joystick back in stock at MSRP for $79.99, perfect for Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 (which is partly causing the joystick shortage). Shipping is free but local sales tax will apply.

Brand new joysticks are pretty much sold out/unavailable everywhere else right now, except for marked up ones on eBay or 3rd party sellers.

How did you find one for $40?? I really want a cheap one since I'm new to HOTAS.
There were multiple sales long time ago goes even as low as $35

Here's one for example.

I thought mine was $40 too, but I just checked my email and it was actually $34.99 when i bought from Best Buy on 9/18/18. I remember buying it early knowing Ace Combat 7 was coming out and I wanted to use it for the VR missions. I'm almost certain I saw it on Slickdeals. Works great with MS Flight Sim, excited to try it with squadrons next month too.

I did fail to notice at first that you have to actually screw the two pieces together - the throttle and stick come separate but have an allen wrench on the bottom that will allow you to screw them together if you don't need to mount them separately for any reason.

Edit: Yep, found the SD thread from 2018: https://slickdeals.net/e/12054187-thrustmaster-t-flight-hotas-4-for-pc-and-ps4-is-50-off-at-34-99-on-bestbuy-com?src=SiteSearch
Yup. I got mine from that thread too. Also for Ace Combat in VR Smilie

So after spending $100 between the stick and AC7 (plus tax), I pretty much only played those three VR missions. I even had people over the Friday after it launched to try it out and we beat them all in a couple hours. So much fun, I didn't even mind the fact that I basically spent $50 per hour of entertainment. Could never get into the non-VR missions, but man that was a blast in VR.

Edit: Oh yeah, and AC7 hype was 95% of the reason I finally picked up PSVR, which I think I spent $300+tax on. So I was in over $400 basically thanks to that one game.

Pro tip: These joysticks feel so much better after applying a little damping grease to the internal components. Something like Nyogel 767A makes it feel like a much more expensive joystick. Been having a blast in flight sim lately

you got any advice on how to use the trim function while flying? I'm a novice and can't seem to understand the purpose of that on aerodynamics and what scenarios to use it.

Got this so I could go back and forth from PS4 to PC while playing Elite Dangerous. It's pretty good and I like that it separates for more natural hand placement, but it doesn't have a ton of buttons compared to other sticks.

You need to go into its settings. Make sure to update the latest firmware as well. My trim wasn't working until I went into settings and clicked the second setting. 5/4 instead of 4/3 or something like that in settings.

Anyone know how VR with this would be on PC?

Should I look elsewhere?

The PS4 one has pretty much always been in stock, smh. It's the Thrustmaster that's compatible with Xbox and Windows that is out of stock -- Microsoft Flight Simulator is on Game Pass for Xbox and Windows. It doesn't exist for PS4, so this stick is only usable for Windows.

Like in a flying scenario? Trim sets the elevator (vertical) or rudder (horizontal) to make it easier to keep a particular position. Say you're taking off, instead of holding the stick back you to keep the nose up, you just adjust the trim to hold it at that position until you hit your altitude. On the other hand, if there is a cross wind forcing you to keep a constant rudder, you can use trim to keep it for you.

I also got in on that same deal for $34.95 from Best Buy... I haven't even had time to install and play with it! Had no idea there was a shortage.
