The T.Flight Hotas Ace Combat 7 Skies Unknown edition joysticks offer a brand-new gaming experience for Ace Combat 7 by providing an entirely new approach to its gameplay.  Both dynamic and accessible, the new joystick offers an increased level of dogfighting realism so Ace Combat pilots can further hone their fighting instincts and reflexes while engaged in exciting aerial combat. …

The efficiency and ease of play offered by the T.Flight Hotas range of joysticks are the hallmarks of Thrustmaster’s flight products, and allows beginners and pros to easily jump in and start playing. Thanks to the close collaboration with the Ace Combat development team, the joystick has been fully integrated into the game so that control is more precise and intuitive than ever before.  Although it is optimized for third-person point of view, the joystick can also be used in first-person mode for more experienced pilots.
