    Advanced Control Customization with the Thrustmaster AVA Joystick Base

    The Thrustmaster AVA (Advanced Versatile Aviation) joystick base redefines precision in flight simulation hardware. It is designed to meet the rigorous demands of pilots and is compatible across all aircraft types. The AVA base features a 100% metal mechanism, ensuring top-tier performance, durability, and precise positioning. This high quality hardware allows users to tailor their control settings for incredibly accurate steering and a uniquely personal tactile experience.

    Exclusive Precision Technology

    The AVA base incorporates 3D Hall Effect magnetic sensors on all axes, which are crucial for achieving surgical precision without dead zones. This technology delivers a remarkable 16-bit resolution, translating to 65,535 distinct values for unparalleled control fidelity. In addition to precision, another major advantage of magnetic sensors is that they don't have moving parts and, therefore, do not wear during use.

    Key Features for Enhanced Flight Simulation

    The joystick base is a ideal for both civilian and military aircraft. Its unique industrial design and meticulously crafted metal components are compatible with existing and future Thrustmaster flightstick grips. The AVA allows for rapid adjustments to the joystick's four functional elements:

    • Cam profiles (2 sets)
    • Spring resistances (3 sets)
    • Dampers (1 set)
    • Deflection masks (3 sizes)

    This versatility caters to a range of pilots, from fighter jet enthusiasts seeking robust tension to helicopter pilots who prioritize finesse and precision.

    Superior Performance

    The AXY technology (Accurate X & Y) featured in the AVA base supports precise, independent adjustments of the joystick's center point, progressivity, and resistance. This functionality ensures accuracy, which is critical for superior performance. Additionally, the base offers accessibility 'on the fly,' enabling pilots to adjust the stick's stiffness externally without the need for disassembly.

    Seamless Integration and Compatibility

    The AVA joystick base is designed for seamless integration with popular flight simulation games like Digital Combat Simulator (DCS) and Microsoft Flight Simulator. The plug-and-play capability ensures that the device is automatically recognized by the game, simplifying the setup process.
    The AVA Base is compatible with Thrustmaster flightstick grips, including the F-16 Viper and F/A-18C Hornet Grip Add-on.

    Modularity and Expansion

    As part of a broader ecosystem, the AVA joystick base is modular and expandable. It supports a wide range of accessories, such as additional cams, springs, dampers, and cyclic brakes, enhancing its adaptability and longevity. Installation options are versatile, thanks to pre-drilled holes that accommodate various mounting systems, whether on a desk, workstation, table or within a cockpit setup.

    An unmatched revolutionary Flight Simulator experience

    In essence, the Thrustmaster AVA joystick base offers an unmatched, revolutionary flight simulator experience combining durable design, cutting-edge technology, and extensive customization options to cater to the most demanding simulation enthusiasts.
