Overall needs work, I do not recommend.

  • Summary: I am forced to return the system because of the problems listed above. When I spend $300 on a flight system I expect perfection, this come no where near.
  • Pros: Joystick is very accurate and very smooth (when not jittering), heavy throttle and joystick limit movement on my desk. Keep in mind I only use FSX.
  • Cons: Throttle - spiking problem is intolerable!! Your throttle will have this problem when shipped, or develop the problem over time. When you move the throttle, it causes the R1 and R2 sliders to spike or get stuck, Google "g940 r1+r2 spiking" you'll find 2-3 pages or complaints. Joystick - jittering...

  • Pros: Alot of buttons, options, and equipment comes with your purchase. Price isn't too bad.
  • Cons: The joystick will start to make noise pretty quickly when moving it. Like a plastic being bent/forced sound. Hard to setup with the game I was in. Joysticks would mimic other's settings.

Update

Jodi T., Newegg
25 August 2011
  • Summary: There is so much potential for this to be THE flight sim controller to have, but I feel like Logitech has sort of left us hanging. They gave us a some new firmware a while back. Most people don't like it but now we're stuck with it with no way to go back to the old one.
  • Pros: Again, the stick and throttle have a nice feel to them and feel very solid. Lots of buttons and axis' and hats, oh my! If you can get the FFB set up the right way (takes some experimenting) it adds an incredible amount of realism to any flight sim.....
  • Cons: ...IF you can get the thing set up right. I have had some success in getting most of the buttons to work where I want them to, but still have issues with the various hat switches. I had to figure out how to edit the functions myself. Definitely not a plug and play device, at least with FSX. I hav...

I think I'll love it eventually...

  • Summary: There are some definite compatibility issues with the G940 as FSX, and the profiler was very confusing to me at first. FSX is one of the most popular sims out there. You would think Logitech would make a bit more of an effort to get the thing working correctly in this sim.
  • Pros: Good, solid feel to the hardware. Fairly comfortable to hold on to. Even with the issues I am having, it adds alot of realism to the sim experience. However....
  • Cons: Some of the buttons aren't the most ergonomic. I have large hands and still have to stretch to reach a couple of them. The FFB is a bit qwirky to get right. Still working on that. hopefully the latest SW/FW will address that. The biggest issue is compatibility. I've had the thing about a week and...

Overall Thoughts

Anonymous, Newegg
1 April 2011
  • Summary: Logitech IS on the right design track. But their lack of tech support in their forums---And in their programing software is lacking
  • Pros: Nice layout of the sticks in general. Comfortable. Plenty of cable length
  • Cons: The first stick was faulty and returned for replacement. The replacement sticks arrived and worked out of the box for roughly 2 weeks. Considering the original purchase, first RMA, and retrieval of the replacement, after the replacement went bad after the very short time, contacting Newegg about ...

Had to return

J. Harrington, Amazon

  • Summary: It is very hard to give an overall rating to the G940 because I think it is better with certain flight sim software than others. I liked all the features of the unit but returned it after 30 days.

Logitech Flight System G940 (942-000016)

Лунин Эдуард, Rozetka

  • Conclusion: Брал такой, покатал пару дней и отнес обратно. Функционал, исполнение - на высоком уровне, чувствуется качественная вешь. Но. Обратка скорее мешает, чем помогает, сильно ступенчатый отклик по усилию, большая мертвая зона в центре, где усилия вообще нет. Педали очень устойчиво стоят в центре, т.н.
  • Pros: Качество исполнения Функционал Бесконтактные датчики
  • Cons: Плохая обратная связь Неважные педали

Assez énervant

Swan, Amazon
12 August 2011
  • Summary: Enervant à cause des multiples bugs toujours non résolus par le dernier firmware ; il faut sans cesse reparamétrer le pédalier (les bugs varient selon les joueurs) Parfois, la gachette reste inactive quand on appuie dessus, etc... Dommage, vu le prix...

ce que j'en pense

  • Summary: ensemble complet qui semble robuste, on verra à l'usure, en revanche je ne suis pas convaincu par le retour de force,celui du EVOFORCE de SAITEK est nettement meilleur mais fragile, dommage.

Geschmackssache

Christian Martin, Amazon

  • Summary: Mein Fazit ist: OK Zum Äußeren: Der Joystick macht von der Verarbeitung her einen guten Eindruck. Er lässt sich gut in der Hand halten und die Steuertasten sind gut mit dem Daumen erreichbar.
