Summary: I bought this from Amazon, took the super-saver shipping and received it two days later, on a Thursday evening. The packaging was more than adequate and the controller arrived without a scratch on it. I've now had an entire weekend to play with it so these are my thoughts.
Summary: Logitech G940 Review 3-11-11 Just before I ordered Logitech's G940, I ordered and tried the Saitek X52, (not to be confused with the X52 Pro). I fly mostly in FSX, (lately helicopters and stick controlled planes), and have just started flying some of the other 'action' games like Wings over Europe.
Summary: Logitech didn't to their homework when designing this, so you'll have to make a few adjustments, or you'll run into problems. Simple fixes, but the company really should have done this before shipping the product out.
Summary: A left handed version would easily get a 5 egg rating. Competitive price compared to other HOTAS rigs and possibly cheaper than buying separate stick/pedal/throttle components. I would have bought this from Newegg but it was out of stock when my old stick died.
Pros: More possible function/button/hat/ministick assignments than I have been able to use so far. Forces are easily adjusted and can be very realistic depending on your preferences. I'm really enjoying differential braking now and the throttles have just the right amount of resistance.
Cons: I'm left handed and this is clearly built for righties. Still, every stick out there at this time seems to be for righties. The stick handle is a too long for my hand but a bit of dense foam above the rest resolved that. Pedals and throttles are connected to the stick instead of directly to the P...
Summary: This product is a very well-built joystick. Many materials are made of metal instead of flimsy plastic, and finish quality is very good. I am using the rudder pedals on hardwood floors and have had no issues with slippage.
Summary: It feels like the joystick is a little sloppy in the dead center, but overall it's well built and feels good. I'm not so sure the software is all that good but I'm mostly going to use it with FSX and it works good in that.
Summary: One one hand, you're paying a pretty good sum. On the other, this thing is pretty freakin' awesome. I like: +the force feedback (jerky at times, and there is only feedback on the joystick), +the shape and feel of the controls, +the general craftsmanship.
For a flight simmer, this is pretty darn good to have!

Summary: I was given the opportunity to review this flight simmer system. As an avid flight simmer, I was very enthusiastic about the entire set-up of this system, which includes a joystick with force-feedback, rudder pedals and a throttle. Pros: 1.
Summary: I have been playing PC flight sims for quite some time now, since X-Wing was the hot, new title and this stick has helped me remain in controlled flight better than any other stick that I have tried.
Pros: Installs easily, feels good, FFB works well, configured in AH II with little difficulty
Cons: Throttle needs more weight, not enough hats, lack of center detents is unforgivable, cheap paper inserts for buttons laughable, lip on back of the rudders too shallow (for my size 11 clodhoppers)
Summary: This review covers the G940 in general, but specifically talks about using it with Rise of Flight: The First Great Air War , a WWI combat simulator by NeoQB. Joystick: Love the shape of the stick, love most of the buttons, love the coolie hat altho I haven't found a use for it yet in Rise of Flight...
