    I have the Playstation 3 version of this same controller. As much as I had wished for a way to make that one work for my Playstation 4, there was no way, (unless you know how to decipher all of the videos of people that claim they did.) I love flight simulation games of all descriptions; Atmospheric or space versions. Fixed, rotary or futuristic space drive systems. While I am comfortable with the Playstation controllers, they're not the greatest for flying games. After I purchased Elite Dangerous, it became very apparent that I was in need of a better flight control device than the standard controller. (Too many "fines" for excessive time in the space dock entrance, while exiting the stations.) After finding a major sale reduction on the Thrustmaster HOTAS 4, for the Playstation 4, I knew it was time for me to break down and buy this! I have no regrets whatsoever! (And I've yet to get anymore space dock fines on Elite Dangerous!) Based on my experience with the Playstation 3 HOTAS, I knew the quality of the Thrustmasters devices and had no fear that this one would perform any less, or be of any lower quality. Connection to the system was flawless. It was immediately recognized by the Playstation 4, and capable of being used for the home screen navigation. In game, the controls performed without a hitch. In fact, because of the button layout on the flight stick and throttle, (which can separate, via an Allen wrench and four screws on the bottom,) I was able to easily utilize in game controls that were extremely difficult on the standard Playstation controller. Each button on the standard controller is represented on either the flight stick or the throttle. The flight stick itself is capable of a "twist" feature, that will allow rudder control on an aircraft. If that isn't to your liking, there is a rocker lever on the front of the throttle grip that will function as a rudder control as well. I haven't tried any other games, other than Elite Dangerous, but I feel quite confident that it's performance will more than exceed my needs. A very good purchase for anyone that fancies themselves a flight sim fan.

    I purchased this device primarily to play Elite Dangerous on the PC, the fact that it worked for both PC and PS4 was an added value. This device worked great for the first month that I had it and then it would always drift to the left. I followed the directions for allow it to re-calibrate but that didn't help. This could have just been a one off instance for my device but I didn't want to chance it while I was within my return window. That being said, for the value it has a great set of features that aren't covered completely in the product description. For example, the device does separate so that it can be used with Throttle on the left and stick on the right and the cable is just long enough to reach around a keyboard. It can also be screwed together at the base with an included wrench so that it can be used on a small table or your lap when playing on the PS4. There are other small features that are nice as well. This isn't a device on the same scale as a Saitek HOTAS but for the value it's a good product so long as you don't get one that's defective in the first couple of months.

    I purchased the Thrustmaster HOTAS 4 stick to use with my PS4 VR system. The HOTAS is a very well made product with a solid base, clicky buttons and a responsive stick and throttle system. The HOTAS can be separated into two parts to better space out the throttle and stick according to player preference. It is not wireless (but does have a very long cord), nor does it have the central pad that you get on the DS4. Currently, only three games support the device. Eve: Valkyrie is a space based VR combat shooter, Starblood Arena is a cartoony arena based VR shooter and War Thunder is a free to play WWII airplane sim. I did not bother trying War Thunder but the stick worked very well with Eve and Starblood. The independent controls for throttle and pitch made flying much easier and when used with the VR system it really added to the level of immersion. The device is not ambidexterous; you must use your left hand to control the throttle and right hand to control the stick. I'm left-handed and was afraid this would be too much for me to come to terms with but I was pleasantly surprised with how quickly I was able to adjust. The heavy base makes the transition easier. Overall I'd recommend this device as long as you are OK with the limited game support and its layout. It definitely enhances the experience with games that support it.

    I recently started playing "Elite Dangerous" on my PS4, and was told about this joystick being compatible. I went ahead and made the trek to Best Buy, and I'm glad I did. The PS4 immediately recognized the joystick and the game also setup a pre-set control scheme for it! Worked out of the box, with minimal setup! Now I don't have to memorize a complex button scheme with the Dual Shock 4 controller, since this does pretty much everything. The only downside is that it doesn't support a headset, like the PS4 controller does. So if you want to chat while you're flying around the galaxy, you'll need to pick up a wireless option or use a USB headset.

    Hand On Throttle And Stick review..Product came packaged well and that's always a plus! Arrived on time too! About the product: It has a great feel to it. It is made of plastic but it doesn't feel cheap. There is a tension knob on the bottom of the flight stick that comes in handy and makes the stick feel much more stable. The button layout is great. Perfect for Elite Dangerous the only reason I did not give this 5 stars was I couldn't find the R3 Button easily and that is by default a major usage button in Elite dangerous for me. No problems though once I found out how to remap the buttons it worked flawlessly. I say if your on the fence get it because you wont find another that is made this well for this price!

    There's a Compatibility Fix!

    It's a great flight stick--and honestly the best one I've had yet--but if you have one of these and are wondering where all the compatibility is with PS4 games, simply search YouTube for, "Ps4 No Man's Sky game played with Flight Stick Controller." This is done using a small device called the CronusMax Plus, and with this device, you choose which PS4 games are compatible with this flight stick. It's a great flight stick that's very rugged, and now that I know the CronusMax Plus with force it to work with whichever games I choose, I'm going to keep my T.Flight Hotas 4. Hope that helps.

    I am using this exclusively for PC. I do not have a Playstation. I was initially concerned it might not be completely compatible for PC use but this is not an issue. Works flawlessly. I could not see a display unit so I was concerned it would be cheap quality. Really quality is pretty good I feel especially for the price. The older version for PC use supposedly had some "centering issues " I read. IDK myself. This version is better with all issues being resolved I read. To me it appears so. Very satisfied with the unit. Note, I primarily use it on the PC for "Elite Dangerous Horizons", a space sim.

    I owned the T Flight HOTAS X for the PS3, and it worked wonderfully for the games Apache Air Assault and Birds of Steel. It wasn't officially supported for the PS4 however (although it technically DOES work, it just needs a LOT of tweaking to feel "right"). Thankfully, the T Flight HOTAS 4 has been released. It pairs up perfectly with War Thunder on the PS4 (from the makers of Birds of Steel...and a free download!). Controls are tight and responsive, buttons are all fully customizable, and it works flawlessly as a "plug-n-play" with war thunder! Highly recommended for flight enthusiasts!
