Thrustmaster Launches the T.16000M FCS Space Sim Duo Joysticks

By combining two T.16000M Flight Control System joysticks, Thrustmaster offers gamers the ability to play with identical products in both hands, inviting them to experience their favorite space flight simulation games from a whole new perspective.

Two lethal weapons delivering an even more powerful flight experience
With the T.16000M FCS Space Sim Duo, gamers can now control their spacecraft using a joystick in each hand, in all games supporting the simultaneous use of two joysticks. This ensures even greater realism in games, particularly for Mech warrior pilots or deep space explorers. Enjoy absolute control when weaving a path through asteroid fields, avoid your opponents and target your enemies with surgical precision. The T.16000M FCS Space Sim Duo is a pack comprising two T.16000M FCS joysticks. The fully ambidextrous controller can be configured as a left-handed or right-handed device, thanks to three detachable components. Its appearance and design ensure that it is particularly suitable for use in a dual-joystick setup. It delivers ideal comfort and excellent stability, thanks to its large handrest and weighted base.
Each joystick in the T.16000M FCS Sim Space Duo pack benefits from the extreme precision of Thrustmaster's H.E.A.R.T HallEffect AccuRate Technology, which uses 3D magnetic sensors (Hall Effect) located in the stick to deliver precision levels 256 times greater than current systems, with a resolution reaching 16,000 x 16,000 values. As actions are frictionless, the joystick's precision remains unaltered in time. Each joystick provides pilots with firm, linear and smooth tension, thanks to the helical spring (0.1"/2.8 mm in diameter) located inside the stick. Combining two joysticks offers no less than 32 action buttons (with Braille-style physical identifiers) and 2 multidirectional hats, providing users with a significant range of feature allocation choices. Each joystick features 4 independent axes, rotary rudders located on the stick that can be allocated to horizontal or vertical strafing manoeuvers and two triggers, offering a full-fledged arsenal of possibilities.

The power of the T.A.R.G.E.T programming software
The Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor software application, which enables gamers to combine a Thrustmaster joystick with other devices* from the brand, can be used to a rather unique end: managing and optimizing twinned controllers! Users can create and/or load specific mapping profiles and share them with the gaming community.

The T.16000M FCS Space Sim Duo is available now, at the suggested retail price of $114.99 .

I'm left handed, but I've gotten so used to most products that I end up using them right handed automatically anyways. I probably couldn't "unlearn" now. I have a cheaper Stick X btw.

I correct myself the old version that I keep stored is already ambidextrous. This newer one adds lights and a second unit. Oh that marketing genius!
Thrustmaster btw has never left the party, but joysticks are less popular (I don't know or understand why!, I use them for planes, cars and bikes.) Well, yes, gamepads with preconfigured settings are just easier to use for all ages and IQ's.

You seemed to have missed the "cheating ex" point of that statement. Anyway, back on topic...

Cool, It's been a while since I've used an actual flight stick. Actually, been thinking of getting another one. Recently picked up Freespace 1&2 as well as Independence War 1&2 from GOG and have been dying to play them properly.
