Flight Simulator is a bit more realistic thanks to the TCA Quadrant 'Airbus Edition'. Thrustmaster has developed this TQ for Airbus pilots, and of course, the throttle also works with other types of aircraft.
The Airbus Throttle Quadrant has two separately operating thrust levers that are equipped with fully functioning thrust reverse levers and TO/GA buttons. The resistance of the Thrust Levers can be easily adjusted by tightening or loosening a resistance screw.
What makes this quadrant special and different from all other available throttle quadrants is that the throttle can be used linear and in Airbus style. By converting a mechanical switch on the quadrant, it is possible to use (or not use) the typical Airbus mode, such as Idle, Climb, Flex, and TO/GA.
Besides this, the TCA Quadrant has an engine panel with replica buttons from the Airbus A320 Neo, including 'Engine Master' switches.
The Airbus Edition throttle is also great on the inside. In addition to the mechanical ability to select throttle mode, this product does not work with potentiometers that can become dirty, but with non-contact and highly accurate magnetic sensors. These sensors are virtually impervious to malfunction and always remain as accurate as ever.
The Throttle Quadrant is modularly expandable with an extra TCA Quadrant 'Airbus Edition', for example, which gives you the possibility to fly four-engine aircraft, or with, for example, modules for flaps and gear (release date TBA).
This product is also fully compatible with the Thrustmaster Flying Clamp.
The Airbus Throttle has built-in integration for Flight Simulator 2020: your TQ is configured automatically as soon as FS2020 recognizes your Airbus hardware.
Of course, this product also works with Flight Simulator X, Prepar3D, and X-Plane 11, which means that this flightsim hardware is also a great addition when you already own the Aerosoft A320/A321, for example.
