Wireless Joysticks not existing?

Recommended Posts

Hi,

as I recently got a new TV I hooked my PC up and tried MSFS on it in 4k. What can I say - gorgeous!

However, while I can use my Logitech wireless Mouse and Combo, I cannot use my Thrustmaster Flght Stick X obviously.So I cheked for a wireless Joystick to use but was surprised such a thing doesn't seem to exist? I always only get suggestions for standard X-Box controllers and the like.

Have I missed something or do they really not exist?

thanks!

They don't exist unfortunately. I've wondered as well.

Thanks. So I'll need to look for a 30ft USB extension 🙄

You will need something like this -- https://www.monoprice.com/product?p_id=8490

Due to the length a repeater would be best (included on the above). When extending USB cables beyond about 15 feet, you can suffer from signal strength reduction. The further you go, the worse it becomes until you get poor (or no) valid connections.

Hi, did you get your cable already? In case you would happen to be an iPhone owner, you could try an app right away in the meantime, if you are interested in wireless.  It is now free. Ownership disclosure: It's mine.

Did you end up getting the cable? Did it work? Just curious.
