A Flight Sim Joystick for A Left Hander

Does anyone know where I can find a flight Sim joystick for a left handed person with the throttle lever on the right hand side please.

They seem to be as rare as hens teeth. Manufacturers obviously think the whole world is right handed.

I did own a old Saitek Cyborg 3D gold joystick which was excellent but has now passed away.

Thanks for any help.

Will this do, http://www.amazon.co.uk/Thrustmaster-T-Flight-Hotas-Joystick-PS3/dp/B001CXYMFS/ref=sr13?ie=UTF8&qid=1355502737&sr=8-3 , as it has a detachable ergonomic pusher lever ?

Thanks for trying but it is still all the wrong way round and set up for a right handed person.

I have probably just looked at all possible web sites that you have.

The answer, I suppose, is a yoke and throttle quadrant. From memory I believe they have the throttles on the right.

Whether or not that makes them fully left handed I don't know.

Always promised myself one and now you have set me off again!

I was taught to fly in the left hand seat, stick in left hand throttle on the right.

Whether I could get get used to that again in fs9. Tried it a few times with little success.

In reality Captains and First Officers have to be ambidextrous. (Is that spelt right!!)

Getting expensive here, link, shows designed for both left and right hand.

Trying my best... :(

If you are going for realism in your flight sim and flying a single seat or tandem seat aircraft then the throttle will almost certainly be on the left.
