    Airbus Drivers!!

    Hi All you Airbus drivers,

    I am looking for information as to what make of sidestick you are using. I am building a 737/Airbus generic pit and can't seem to find a left hand stick or an ambidexterous stick so looking for ideas and help on this.

    Many Thanks

    Rob

    Some options

    Hi,
    I use a Saitek Cyborg Evo at the moment. It has a removeable hand support which makes it left or right handed if you need it to be. I'm planning an Airbus cockpit too so I intend to use a pair of them. They don't look anything like the real thing but hey...compromise?

    Another option might be a Wasp 2 joystck. It's a cheap, rather funky looking thing. And it's ambidextrous. But it has no rudder control. It IS less than a tenner! They are available on Amazon and eBay, among other places.

    Rob,

    maybe you will find this thread interesting. There was a discussion about the Airbus side stick.

    Thanks Guys,

    It looks like a toss up between logitec and Saitek. Have to see if they're in stock at the local Future Shop.

    Ahhh... I think that's what I had in mind Dave but just couldn't remember the company. I kept reminding myself to check the business cards when I got home.
