Thrustmaster TCA Airbus Edition- Facts and Questions

I was flying the HOTAS X which I received about a week prior to receiving the Airbus joystick and YES, A.B.S.O.L.U.T.E.L.Y !! No possible comparison.
The Airbus stick offers way more realism.

I fixed my issues by switching my connection from Mac to PC (my MacBook Air is old and in serious needs of updates and memory space).
It solved all my issues and now I constantly proceed with SID - often times until cruise - STAR and IAPs fully manually. It literally is a game changer.
On top of that the liveflight connect app on PC is where more detailed and professional.

I strongly recommend the Airbus joystick over any other. It gave me a boost in terms of excitement to fly in IF after 3 years of flying. It brings me a true feel for realism and aim at improving my actual flying skills vs tapping the AP or somewhat flying by tilting the iPad.

Also wanted to share a picture of what your Flight Sim desk could look by the end of this year ;)

Thanks for the detailed comprehensive answer… Have you faced any problems in set up? Sometimes Live Flight Connect is unstable and makes the stick suddenly unresponsive… Do the thrust quadrant, parking brake lever and engines’ switches work nornally with IF with all planes?

That looks amazing! I am definitely hoping to use this with X-Plane if i get them. (Pls do not flag me for saying something about xplane lol)

What I love about the throttles, is that they are weighted. They do not feel like cheap plastic toys you will find in a grocery store. They feel legitimate.

Also, I love how you can separate each throttle quadrant. Meaning you can apply more thrust on one engine to make turn easier. (Wich if IF did, it would add so much more realism to the game.)

Thrust-master really does make amazing products for flight simulations. I also really would find it interesting if Honeycombe did something like that. Especially because everyone like their yoke that they made.

Unfortunately, when plugging the joystick into my Mac the computer does not recognize or list the device. Has anybody else experienced this problem?

Hello,
do you think you can use the Thrustmaster TCA Quadrant in Infinite flight?

Yes, thankfully it does work with IF, as a user has bought it and has users it above.

do the engine master switches also work on the quadrant?

Since the release of that has been delayed we do not know the answer to that at the moment.

ok, so it is worth booking this in advance

I would say, hold off on the purchase and wait till someone tries it out with IF, or if someone already has a throttle quadrant you should ask them first

^^^ that’s for the joystick but we don’t know about anything else working.

Q1:

Is this thread for the sidestick in general or just IF?

Q2 (If answer to Q1 = yes)

Is the sidestick compatible with XBox series X?

Thanks a bunch!

Q1:

This thread is for the general awareness of the TCA series. We know the side stick works with IF but we aren’t too sure about other quadrants.

Q2:

Not sure
