The TWCS Throttle from Thrustmaster is now available.
The TWCS features smooth S.M.A.R.T (Sliding Motion Advanced Rail Tracks) technology with five axes, 14 buttons and an 8-way Point of View HAT switch. It also features a mini-stick, which can be used for strafing or slew control and a rotary wheel can be used for menu selection or radio antenna control.
The unit is based on the S.M.A.R.T technology, developed exclusively by Thrustmaster, which uses a system of slide rails, offering a travel range of 3.2in/80mm with smooth, high-precision speed control. The resistance can also be adjusted to suit your preference.
The throttles are compatible with the T.A.R.G.E.T (Thrustmaster Advanced pRogramming Graphical EdiTor) software and when combined with the new T.16000M HOTAS Joystick & TFRP Rudder Pedals, they are recognized as a single USB controller. In addition, the TWCS features a toggle rudder with a 15° angle and mechanical return to neutral.
With its two M6 screw threads and four rubber foot pads for improved stability, enabling it to be fitted on your desktop or in a cockpit.
The TWCS Throttle will be available on September 30 at the suggested retail price of €79.99 (taxes included).
The TWCS is part of a range of flight simulation peripherals that can be used in conjunction with the FCS flight stick, TWCS throttle, TFRP rudder pedals and MFD (Multi-Functional Display) cockpit panels. They are compatible with or without the T.A.R.G.E.T advanced programming software.
