Summary: I honestly really liked this product however after some time the throttle unit began to malfunction and when i called logitech for a replacement they said they no longer make this product and there was no replacement available. needless to say i spent $400 on a stick i can no longer make use of. However if your good at electronic repair there are instructions on how to fix it yourself unless you have it under warranty which I don't.
Summary: I bought this system because I am obtaining my Private Pilot's License and thought this would be a good addition to my simulator. So from that perspective, let me just start by saying that I think the force feedback is gimmicky; it doesn't at all feel like a real plane - at least not like a Cessna 150. So when pulling up, for instance, force is felt on the stick. But then if you pull up more, than there is no increasing resistance.
Summary: Here's the deal. Logitech doesn't have a great reputation among hardcore flight simulation enthusiasts. So you ask, "why is this?" I'll tell you why. Because their products are usually poor quality and have poor accuracy. Perhaps for someone who only needs a joystick 'every once in awhile' they might be just fine, but to be used day in and day out.. they break pretty quickly. Usually in Logitech's case, it was due to the pots going bad in the sticks.
