Summary: This is one of the best joysticks I have used. You don't need the downloadable software as it is confusing to program and use I just plugged it in and programmed buttons in game. the stick has very precise control , but that's what I like about it. I would buy it again .
Decent stick for its price and actually called the AV8R

Summary: Although it's described as a PS3 device it works fine with my PC. Although it's light, it doesn't slide all over when using the stick, even in maneuvers unless you are way more physical than you need be. The toggle switches are not positional meaning they stay centered and you move it up or down and it returns to the center position. It gives a total of 8 selections programmable. The selector switch in the middle has positions OFF 1 and 2.
Summary: Excellent for flight simulators, etc. Does the job very well, accurate, sturdy. I recommend. USB connection. Does not need batteries or power. Descent stability on a table, although could be heavier.
Summary: I bought this joysatick to go with Flight Pro Simulator. It does not configure with that program or MS Flight sim. It is not worth the hassle to reconfigure it to use. I would not buy this again.
Summary: I bought this not to use as a joystick but to add to my simulated home cockpit. I purchased the Digital Combat Simulations KA-50 Black Shark combat helicopter simulation and wanted to add a collective control. All helicopters have collective controls and I didn't want to use my HOTAS throttle for that purpose. So I bought this Joystick and modified it into a collective controller.
Summary: i absolutely love this thing.i'm a sci fi lover and i've been playing the doom trilogy and unreal and a host of others with this and it's totally awesome.way so much to say about it.it sped up my game and gave me fire power that i couldn't believe cause i never had it with these games like this before//i do recommend this stick and the seller too.it arrived fast,like new condition and most of all it works like a charm!
Summary: The stick is very solid and reliable. I needed a replacement for a Saitek Cyborg which had developed a glitch in the rudder control section. While the new one is substantially more reliable, I haven't found the included software to be of any use. Logitech does a better job with software. The Saitek program doesn't launch automatically and is not simple to learn or use. Since I use the stick exclusively with FSX, the FSX application would override the stick.
Summary: Item was shipped and received very fast. The controller was simple and fast to install and works as advertised. This is a sturdy well built controller and the digital manual(on the installation disc)provides the codes necessary to interface or edit the controller functions if necessary. Depending on the game being played, the controller may be sensitive to control inputs and take a little practice.
Summary: Overall I like this joy stick, good feel and lots of features. Unfortunately, I can't use many of the programmable features in XP SP3 because the profile editor will not run, it shuts down with a "need to close" message. This happened with the latest 32 bit download (the one that came with the joystick was worse, instead of shutting down the profile editor, it would blue screen).
Summary: Purchased this joystick for use with Microsoft Simulator and it performs very well. Appears to be made well and sturdy for FS functions. Like the dual selection mode programming and toggle switch setup. Very happy with this joystick and would recommend it.
