Some big and exciting news from the FS Expo conference! Thrustmaster has announced a Boeing flight sim Yoke and Throtle, which are both officially licensed by Boeing.
The Thrustmaster Boeing Yoke and Thrustmaster Boeing Throttle are inspired on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner and will be release separately, and combined as a Yoke Pack.
No announcements were made about a release date, or retail prices. This will most likely to happen at their next announcement, which is plannen on November, 9.
Thrustmaster Boeing Yoke
Although this is Thrustmaster's first yoke, the techniques they have used in this yoke are revolutionary. Any other flight sim yoke is using a shaft system, where the Thrustmaster Boeing Yoke uses a pendular system. This system adds even more realism to flying a Boeing airliner in flight simulator compared to any other flight yoke system currently available.
As you might have expected from Thrustmaster they have created a high quality yoke, with a full metal inside. As in most flight sim products manufactured by Thrustmaster they have also used magnetic sensors in their new flight yoke. Magnetic sensors (also referred to as HALL-sensors) are always precise and don't suffer from wear.
Thrustmaster Boeing Throttle
The Thrustmaster Boeing Throttle has three axis, and will be sold with four levers. Two fully functional throttle levers, a speed brake lever, and a flaps lever. The levers are interchangeable for any desired configuration.
The throttle has five push buttons and an autopilot selector on its base.
Compatible with PC and Xbox Series X|S
The Thrustmaster TCA Yoke Pack Boeing Edition is compatible with both PC and Xbox Series X|S. This is great news for users of Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox, as there aren't much hardware options available for console at this moment.
