Thrustmaster TCA Quadrant Airbus Edition Delayed

Thrustmaster Tca Quadrant Delay

Earlier this year, Thrustmaster announced their entry into the commercial aviation market with their TCA Airbus range. The range of products were designed to replicate the look and feel of Airbus aircraft. The first release was the Thrustmaster TCA Airbus Sidestick Edition, and that was to be followed up by a throttle quadrant and additional add-on. Today, Thrustmaster announced that the TCA Quadrant has been delayed until October.

Initially, the TCA Quadrant Airbus Edition was meant to release and ship to customers on September 24th 2020, however, due to shipping delays, this has been delayed until October 22nd 2020. Whilst no reason is given, this is likely attributed to numerous factors including the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Thrustmaster did apologise to the community for the delay and thanked for the continued support. This also means the TCA Officer Pack Airbus Edition has also been delayed.

In the meantime, you can read our review on the Thrustmaster TCA Airbus Sidestick Edition here. We’ll keep you posted if there are any further updates. You can buy your own sidestick (compatible with MSFS, P3D and XPL) here.

Thrustmaster F A 18C

We have re-posted this article as it appeared to not get published correctly at the time of the announcement. Apologies in advance if you have already seen this.

Today at FSExpo 2019, Thrustmaster announced the latest addition to their flight simulation line of products: the F/A-18C Add-On Grip for the Thrustmaster Warthog and Cougar HOTAS systems!

The Thrustmaster F/A-18C Hornet Add-On Grip is a life-size replica of the flight stick found in the real McDonnell Douglas F/A-18C Hornet. Thrustmaster’s rendition is made out of durable, industrial-grade materials for long product life and an authentic feel and features realistic application pressure on all of the handle’s buttons. The stick includes 19 action buttons including a realistic 2-step trigger and an 8-direction “Point of View” hat switch. The F/A-18C grip also supports native integration with the DCS F/A-18C module and is compatible with all other flight simulation games.

The Thrustmaster F/A-18C Hornet Grip is compatible with the company’s legendary Warthog and Cougar HOTAS systems and will be available for a price of 199.99 Euros, or about $229.99 USD. A release date is uncertain at the moment but we’ll be sure to keep you updated once we have new information.
