Thrustmaster T Flight Full Kit X Review (Xbox Series S and PC)
Our Thrustmaster T Flight Full Kit X Review shows off this bit of kit that has specific advanced features for an optimized flight experience. The very first rudder pedals to feature the S.M.A.R.T (Sliding Motion Advanced Rail Track) slide rails system: a technological marvel with 4 slide rails crafted of industrial-grade aluminum for incredibly smooth sliding motion; a self-centering rudder axis, for the perfect balance between smoothness and resistance; and a long-range of travel on the rudder axis, for precise maneuvers.
Thrustmaster T Flight Full Kit X Review Pros:
- The box has loads of padding from polystyrene to additional cardboard slots to hold the pedals in place.
- Solid well made units.
- Can be plugged in and used with Xbox consoles and a PC via USB.
- Short and sweet leaflet of instructions.
- The parts can be used separately.
- Self-storage in that the Allen key needed to lick the two parts together is stored underneath, the cable if you have them separate can be stored and locked into place.
- Brackets for attaching to a desk.
- Long cable from the rudder (pedals) to the sticks. Connects via a proprietary cable.
- Xbox and PC switch on the back.
- Heavy so it all stays where you want it.
- It looks expensive with a high standard of finish.
- Many buttons can all be configured, Xbox buttons are clearly marked in their traditional colors.
- Xbox button, and the light to show it is on.
- Width: 13.8 inches / 350 mm
- Depth: 12.2 inches / 310 mm
- Height: 7.9 inches / 200 mm
- Plug and play on PC.
- The cable has a break-off clip so if anyone trips it will open rather than destroy everything.
- Responsive feedback on the pedals and stick.
- If you just want to plug it into Flight Simulator, then it does all the basic controls straight out of the box.
- Knob underneath to adjust the joystick tension.
- The whole kit can be split into 3 parts, throttle pedals, and a stick so you can move it all around.
Thrustmaster T Flight Full Kit X Review Cons:
- It takes up a lot of space when out of use.
- So many buttons.
- It will take ages to set it up in games like Flight Simulator if you like to utilize every part of the kit.
- It just attracts dust like it’s addicted to being covered in it.
- The kit may not always work in menus so you will have to use a controller or keyboard and mouse in those parts.

Now, this is a serious bit of kit. It’s not ridiculously expensive but it’s not cheap either, any way you look at it though, it feels expensive, it looks proper and it’s an absolute blast to use. I thought I wouldn’t use the pedals much as I’m a basic flight sim kinda guy, I was wrong as I fell into a huge hole of setting up all the many buttons and tweaking the sensitivity of the pedals. You feel badass using it, it looks badass on the desk and it’s just so well put together. It’s like they thought of everything from storage for cables so you can separate the units without a mess or have them together with the excessive cable but they even have clips to store the Allen keys for adjusting and connecting units! Honestly, I have never been huge on peripherals as they take up a lot of space, I could buy games instead and it always felt like a throwaway experience. Now however I look at them differently, they have moved on a long way since my arcade wheel for the Saturn or third-party guns on Playstation, The Thrustmaster T Flight Full Kit X is the real deal offering next-level immersion you thought only possible in virtual reality booths or flight training school. Yes it still takes up a fair bit of space but it is well worth it, and if you play Simulator games then it is a must-own, I shall be trying the game with many other game types because why not! Now, where did I put my copy of After Burner?
