That is a great deal. Sadly it is not ambidextrous designed for those who fly civil aircraft mostly. That is the best feature of Thrustmaster TCA Sidestick. Why do controller manufactures obsess on the right hand grip military style ergonomics predominently?

Because most are right handed.

But if one is simulating the ergonomics of a Diamond Twin or a Cirrus or Airbus even an Ambidextrious stick grip is best because the right hand has throttles and related and flaps and gear and avionics. This for a simmer with a full array of controls. I have CH Yoke/Throttles/Peddles and a Cessna style Quadrant and the HB Quadrant. The CH Quadrant on left for military use but the switches are good for Skylane and Bonnie. Even for Cessna twins. I everything mounted and I can switch aircraft types by enabling or disabling axis to avoid conflict. Now I just need an overhead mount for airliner switches.

Good point. I'd imagine for a stick like this one, it's meant to be a jack of all trades, and lots of simmers are combat simmers, thus the right hand stick (market share and such). But I agree with you wholeheartedly that a good left handed version of this stick would be great to have.

Or ambidextrious like the TCA Airbus stick.
