- Thrustmaster presents the F/A-18C Hornet™ HOTAS Add-On Grip: a life-size replica of the legendary McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C Hornet™ flight stick handle.
- Designed to be a versatile flight companion paying homage to the U.S. Navy’s famed multirole combat jet, it lets you enjoy a unique flight experience all the way from the aircraft carrier’s flight deck and into the skies. At the controls of a fighter aircraft, you’ll be able to quickly lock onto aerial targets with maximum maneuverability. Used with bomber aircraft, the handle lets you take control of what’s going on below and neutralize ground-based targets.
- The versatility delivered by the F/A-18C Hornet™ HOTAS Add-On Grip allows for a varied, complementary range of actions and maneuvers. In addition to its 8-direction “Point of View” hat switch and realistic 2-step trigger, the handle includes a wide range of impressive features, including: two 4-direction hat switches with push button; one 2-way button with push button; and four additional push buttons (including two pinky push buttons).
- The pressure on the handle’s buttons, in line with that on the real F/A-18C Hornet™ flight stick, is the result of extremely precise development work — from the selection of components to the build quality.
- Featuring native integration in the DCS combat flight simulator game (via the F/A-18C module), this replica presents an amazing opportunity to help refine your flight skills on every level: domination of the land, seas and skies is now right at your fingertips.
