I bought this stick the day after obtaining the Gravis Thunderbird 2 just to see what the ‘hat’ switch on the Thrustmaster stick was like. This was another of my bootsale finds and at £1 was not necessarily good value! By todays standards this stick is very crude - but it does work. It also boasts the full set of 4 buttons but they are fiddly and lack of a throttle control mean it is unlikely to see much action.
There was another reason for buying this. Some years ago I used to visit the UK offices of Thrustmaster on a regular basis and this was the sort of stick that was around at that time.
