Thrustmaster TCA Sidestick Airbus Edition: Ergonomic replica of the world-famous Airbus sidestick. Ambidextrous joystick with swappable modules, featuring magnetic technology and built-in airliner function. Compatible with PC.


Thrustmaster is thrilled to launch its first civil aviation-related gaming accessory, officially licensed by Airbus, for an intuitive and realistic flight experience. 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).


The design of the joystick’s head is both versatile and modular, thanks to the swappable joystick head button modules. You can easily adjust the sidestick’s configuration before each takeoff, to meet your requirements: captain, co-pilot, or with the sidestick in the central position for solo flight. The rudder can be used by rotating the sidestick’s handle, to make flying easier for multitasking pilots.


This rudder function built into the sidestick’s handle also includes a locking system for a more realistic commercial flight experience. The TCA Sidestick Airbus Edition features Thrustmaster’s celebrated proprietary H.E.A.R.T (HallEffect AccuRate Technology) system, ensuring even more realistic sensations thanks to magnetic sensors providing up to 14-bit resolution. This contactless magnetic sensor technology, with no potentiometers, gives the sidestick an unlimited lifespan. The product is compatible with PC (Windows 10, 8).

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!

  • 2 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

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.

Thrustmaster flight product ecosystem compatibility

  • Compatible with PC (Windows® 10, 8)
  • Compatible with the following rudder controllers (sold separately): Thrustmaster T.Flight Rudder Pedals (TFRP) and Thrustmaster Pendular Rudder (TPR)

Thrustmaster TCA Sidestick

I actually purchased this stick as I wanted a cheapy to use as a helicopter collective bolted to the side of my chair. It might be on the cheaper side as far as joysticks go but I'm actually quite impressed by it. Even though it's all plastic, it feels quite robust and comfortable in the hand.
