Summary: Although I haven't used this joystick for awhile, been using other games, it is a very companionable appliance. If you think that a CFS game is fun, give this a try. It not only enhances play but makes it much more convenient.
Summary: I think this joystick is possessed - I haven't crashed a plane yet in Flight Sim X!!!!! It is kind of odd how it turns off to save power if you are in mid-flight, but it makes sense and a click of the button will turn it back on without affecting the flight. Setup is easy but I didn't get any software with it (used) so I'm not sure exactly what software I'm supposed to be using with it. I installed Logitech software but it turns out to not detect the joystick.
Summary: I've been using this joystick for about 1-2 years. It's a truly one-of-a-kind, great, user-friendly joystick (I even used this for a Car game). Many things that I like about it is its adaptability to many systems, its many buttons, which I use in Flight Simulator X for things like flaps, lights, engine start/stop, etc. This product connects to a USB with a long cord to the receiver. This will last a very long time. I even prefer this over the G990 by Logitech.
Summary: I bought this to replace my previous joystick...the same model, which lasted through about 7 years of abuse before finally calling it quits. There aren't many options out there for wireless joysticks, but even if there were I'd recommend this one. The tri-point base is very stable, it doesn't slide on any desk I've had, the buttons and each axis are responsive.
Cody's Review for Logitech Freedom 2.4 GHz Cordless Joystick

Summary: I was tempted to buy this joystick mainly because it was cordless. I don't like cords running along my desk. When I installed this joystick make sure to restart your computer because in the instructions it doesn't tell you to do so. You need to do so in order to move on to the next step. So after that little confusion everything worked just fine. It responds very well in my Flight Simulator X. Appearance: The joystick itself is the same size as the PRO version.
Summary: I purchased this from amazon.com in january 2010. ive owned several flight sticks in the past and this one does as advertised. it has pleanty of buttons to program and the controls are decent. no problems at all with this stick. i recommend it.
Summary: My grandsons are using the joystick with Flight Simulator X. I normally use the Saitek X52 which has more features, but I find the cordless Logitech Freedom to be great fun when runnig FSX on my 46" HDTV. You can't beat it for the price.
Summary: I think the title of my review says it all. This is a well designed joystick and very responsive, but they just don't last. I'm not one of those gorilla gamers who have to duct tape their joysticks down to a table either. I'm been through several of these and I'm guessing I get six months on them before they start going bad (as opposed to my old SideWinder 3D Pro stick which lasted for several years).
Summary: Do not buy this. It went out of calibration within one week. No way to recalibrate. It always turns left, and no way to fix it. Online info is no help at all. This is a big wast of money. Logitech ought to be class action sued for this piece of junk.
