Thrustmaster F18 stick

I think this is pretty straight forward, I’m going to use my several hundred stupid ass dollar thrustmaster stick to fly my T1 Ranger. Has anyone on here tried to do the same? I’m curious if it would be better than a regular PC joystick because of the hall sensors; maybe closer to the quality of the gimbals on an RC transmitter. What could I map to the buttons? Most of that stuff is used to control things not on RC planes lol.
