"I had to get mine from Ozzy."
5 stars"

I bought this same stick from Ozzy a few years ago after discovering that, for some reason, you can't buy a good joystick in New Zealand. After seeing the same cheap pieces of crap everywhere I went I finally got one from overseas.

Hand it to Mightyape to have got some in for us. I haven't played with it much, and I'm not a joystick aficionado but it does what I want it to do and it feels fine. The only thing I don't like is the area around the base of the stick lights up green when you move the stick (that green clear plastic in the picture). I have no idea what purpose this serves but it annoyed me so I covered it with duct tape.

Other than that I can recommend this device. A good joystick for a decent price.

"Good but with a big issue"
3 stars"

I should have researched this before buying :(

This is a solid bit of gear it feels good, centres well, has a good number of buttons and initially felt really well built. I was wrong.

The key issue is that the z-axis (rudder) quickly became flaky AF after about 4 months. After some digging online found two fixes for this widely known issue. The first was to disassemble the hand grip and unwind the potentiometer cable. This is wrapped around the pot and the current appears to induce a weird magnetic effect on the pot. This worked for about 4 months.

The other fix is to disassemble the potentiometer itself and clean with isopropyl alcohol. I haven’t done this yet but guess that my next step.

Buyer beware. If you don’t have problems with the z-axis it’s a good joystick but I’ve had to go back to using my 20 year old Sidewinder Precision Pro.

"Best Joystick for under $100"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

The Thrustmaster T16000M is a fantastic joystick. Its very sturdy does not slide around at all on my desk. Incredibly smooth action and precise control. The buttons and slider do not have as much feedback as I would like and are positioned a little awkwardly but I don't think you'll find another joystick of such high quality for less. Works great in Elite Dangerous and Star Citizen.

The fully ambidextrous T.16000M is suited to all potential joystick users, both left-handed and right-handed: its 3 sections – including 2 removable parts and one part rotating over a 180 Degree angle – allow users to tailor the joystick to their use.

This technology, built into the T.16000 M joystick, relies on 3D Hall Effect magnetic sensors located on the stick. These sensors deliver precision levels 256 times greater than most current systems, allowing over 16,000 different values on each axis, over 268 million values spread out over the joystick's various directions!


  • 3D (Hall Effect) magnetic sensors located on the stick produces precision levels 256 times greater than current systems
  • 3 removable components allow the joystick to be perfectly tailored for left-handed or right-handed use
  • Multidirectional hat (for panoramic view)
