Here is our review of the Thrustmaster T.Flight Full Kit X.

Thrustmaster is proud to offer a full flight simulation kit for gamers looking for immersion and realism in their flight sessions.

T.Flight Full Kit X is the perfect solution for playing Microsoft Flight Simulator on Xbox Series X|S.

Just connect the devices to your console: everything is instantly recognised by the game, and already configured for use right away.

Fly around the world and explore without any constraints!

T.Flight Full Kit X is the solution you’ve been looking for: take to the skies and make your way across the globe in popular flight simulation games, with total control of your aircraft!

What’s in the box?

The box includes the T.Flight Hotas One — the much-loved, versatile plug-and-play joystick for Xbox Series X|S and PC. Ergonomically designed and realistic, it’s great for all types of flight games, including flight simulation (air combat, space adventure, civil flight, etc.).

Also included in the box is the TFRP — rudder pedals featuring Thrustmaster’s S.M.A.R.T (Sliding Motion Advanced Rail Track) slide rails system, for smooth turns and an optimised flight experience.

Final Thoughts

With Top Gun: Maverick out in the cinema and Microsoft’s Flight Simulator getting Top Gun: Maverick content, there has never been a better time to get the Thrustmaster T.Flight Full Kit X and take to the skies.

The full kit is well packaged and comes with two separate boxes – the joysticks and the pedals.

The user guide advises that you download the latest firmware, manual and drivers from the Thrustmaster website, which only takes a few moments.

Then you are ready to get going! The Hotas One clicks together to make it a single unit, although if you find it more comfortable to use apart it will work fine. You will need a flat surface to get the proper use out of it, although I did manage to use it fine on my lap!

You have to connect the pedals to the Hotas One which is simply a case of plugging in the cable – although depending on where you want to sit you may need to be a bit closer to your Xbox as the cable is only 1.5m.

Then depending on whether you are using the kit with an Xbox One or a PC, you need to set the switch on the back of the Hotas One, the plug into whichever device and thats it, you are ready to fly! Depending on which game you are playing there might be some tweaking of the controls. This is where you will need your existing Xbox controller as its not that easier to do all that from the flightstick!

The flightstick itself feels really comfortable to use, and the build quality is excellent, and the various buttons you need are very well placed although they will take a little getting used to where they are. The throttle feels fairly loose which is great, you can make minor adjustments to your speed whenever you need to. You can also adjust the tension on the flightstick if required – basically you can set it all up to work best for you.

The pedals work really well and feel comfortable, and natural to use. When you combine the use of the pedals with the flightstick you really get that immersive experience. You will want to set the pedals up so they are as secure as you can get them, you don’t want them sliding from under your feet if you get a little too involved in the action!

Overall this is a great piece of kit and Thrustmaster has once again knocked it out of the park – everything you need is ready to get you flying!

The Thrustmaster T.Flight Full Kit X is available now priced around £159.99 and is a must if you play Flight Simulator, or you just want to pretend to be Maverick!
