Left handed sticks?

Recommended Posts

Hey all,I',m looking for a stick that you can comfortably use with your left hand. i currently own and use the Logitech Extreme 3D pro, but it's not very comfortable for left handed flying. The reason I want a joystick for left hand flying, is for when I fly my Airbuses. I have the TQ to the right of me, so the stick needs to be on the left. Just like in the actual bus, actually... Anybody out there that can recommend me a good left handed stick?By the way, a POV hat is a MUST. Without it, I will not buy. For the rest I don't really care, to be honest, as my other hardware (TQ, rudder pedals, etc) are used for rudder control and such.

Take a look at the Saitek ST290 Pro USB 5-Button Programmable Joystick for PC.It's advertized as ambidextrous.

Take a look at the Thrustmaster T16000. I went from the Logitech Pro to the T16000 and really like it. It is configurable to work with either hand.As a bonus, it uses hall effect sensors for much greater accuracy.

Thanks for the replies! I've indeed been looking at these two, and the ThrustMaster did catch my eye especially because of its seemingly solid design. I'll see if I can find any good reviews. heck, maybe I'll just write my own!

That T16000 uses Hall Sensors in the stick, too...much more accurate and durable than potentiometers. I have a couple of them, including one set up for left-hand use with Airbus add-ons...it's a very good choice.
