High-end Sidestick

Recommended Posts

Andrej Ropret

Dear Gentlemen,

which of the high-end sidesticks would you recommend? I fly the A320/321 as Captain and therefore would like to have a natural feel back at home as well.

I would not like to buy twice as if PROSRV 2.0 will not feel right, then 1000 eur is wasted and will have to buy 3.0 anyhow.

 

I keep an eye on:

1. ACC PROSRV 3.0

2. FSC.it

FSC sidestick

 

3. genuine OEM sidestick CAPT

I'm using the ACC 2.0, but I'm not a RW pilot, so I can't comment regarding the authenticity. Compared to the sidestick in a Lufthansa FFS it feels a bit stiff. 

By the way, the Skalarki sidestick is an ACC 2.0 as well.

Thank you for clarifying which one Skalarki sells.

Yes I also heard the ACC 2.0 is a bit stiffer then A320 original and feels like a bit different.

thank you John,

Very good idea, I did not know they produce A320 sidestick on FF also. I was searching the Youtube and internet but I cannot find a video or user reviews of this sidestick.

Brunner CLS-E A320

If I read correctly you own their yoke, so it feels different than a sidestick.

Anyhow I send email to Brunner and I hope to get a link or photos/video how does it look in reality.


I would love to feel difference between FSC, ACC 3.0 and Brunner one, then decide.

Regards.

Well for me the dillema is solved, yesterday I ordered ACC PROSRV 3.0 with selenoid lock (disconnects sidestick when you engage AP1/2 and you hear this click) and chose the HAT switch also, to be able ti simply pan around the airplane, even if this feature will not match the real stick.

Selenoid in action (video):

Selenoid demo on PROSRV 3.0

Then I was thinking if I pay such ammount for a sidestick, why not add a tiller and I have a full package. And if both are from the same producer, I can be sure they will worl nicely in pair.

And not to forget, I chose the mounting plate for real cockpit.

 

ACC is proved design and I believe I shall be satisfied next 30 years flying it. And it was a quick response from ACC combined with a tiller package that made me order their product.
