High quality Add-on Grip for your Thrustmaster Warthog
The Thrustmaster F/A-18C Hornet HOTAS Add-On Grip is a replica of the famous McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C flightstick, and specially designed for demanding flightsimmers, with Boeing’s permission. The stick weights 720 gram, and is made of high-quality sustainable materials. Because of this, the stick does not only give you an authentic Hornet feeling, but it also has a long lifespan.
The flightstick is an Add-On, which can be used with the Thrustmaster Warthog base, or with the Thrustmaster Cougar base (not included)
19 action buttons at the top of your fingertips
The F/A-18C Hornet has nineteen fully programmable action buttons. Because Thrustmaster spent a lot of time working on this addon, the feeling of the buttons can be compared tot he feeling of the ‘real’ F/A-18C Hornet flightstick. A good example of this is the realistic 2-step strigger.
In addition, the Hornet joystick has a Point of View (POV) hat switch, two 4-way hat switches with push button, and two pink push buttons, among others. More than enough to have all functions within reach during the most critical moments.
Built-in integration with Digital Combat Simulator (DCS)
The Hornet stick automatically integrates through the F/A-18C module, with Digital Combat Simulator (DCS). The DCS’s realism and the flightstick’s realistic feeling give you the ultimate flying experience during missions and dogfights. Of course, the Add-On Grip is also compatible with other flight simulator games.
With Trustmaster’s T.A.R.G.ET. (Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor) software the possibilities to customize your joystick are endless. T.A.R.G.E.T. allows you to program your joystick the way you want to, but if you have no knowledge of programming it is also possible to choose a standard profile (and adjust it).
