In the land of the armless, the one handed man is king...

mthous01, Amazon

  • Summary: I know the title of the review is a bit unusual, but my father has a very high functioning case of cerebral palsey, where he has little to no use of his right hand. Thus, playing video games is extremely difficult for him, especially since they have advanced from Atari and Nintendo, where there were only 1 or 2 buttons to go with the joystick. He loves Nascar and Football and Baseball games, and to go with an ESPN game package we purchased him, we got him this joystick.

unrequited hardware lust

  • Summary: I really liked my old Sidewinder 3D Pro, but it's become a problem getting the new operating systems to recognize it on the still great but aging Creative Live Drive gameport. I've lusted for the Saiteks. So I got this wireless one to continue uncluttering my desk. I'm tall and have big hands, so I thought an adjustable one would be cool. Beefs: 1. It had a dead stick button out of the box.

  • Summary: I'm a long time user of the Cyborg line of joysticks. So when it came time to get a new one I decided on this model because the wireless feature. Which ill go into in a moment. The first thing i noticed after taking it out of the box was the size of the USB adapter. It basically takes up 2 slots it's so big. I stuck the software disk in only to be told it dosnt support Windows Vista.

A few minor issues but overall good

  • Summary: I like the wireless version of this controller for the obvious reason of not having to plug in the old one and deal with another cable laying around. As read in other reviews, the stick does have a problem "waking up" for play time. I found that it was better to just take out the battery when not in use and then put it back in after I load up a new flight.

Connectivity problems...

Benmachine, Amazon
9 September 2007
  • Summary: It's possible that the problem was with this specific unit, but the joystick was subject to frequent disconnections apparently tied to RF interference. Despite changing the joystick's channels and using numerous alternate batteries, as well as removing most interfering devices away (really, only 3 nearby items transmitting on the 2.4 gHz range), the stick still proved to be too intermittent.

Saitek Cyborg Evo Wireless

Jason M. Scarpinato, Amazon
13 May 2007
  • Summary: Nice joystick, but I found it to be a very glitchy stick. Did not always do what I was asking it to do (i.e. not firing or rotating until several seconds after initiating the action). I also found myself having to "reset" the stick very often by removing the batteries and reinstalling them. I would not recomend this stick. I cannot offer any other suggestions for a wireless stick since I replaced it with the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro.

  • Summary: I like to pull out Rogue Squadron and X-wing alliance every now and then. I had saitek joysticks before, but this wireless is perfect. Quick response, and excellent battery life.

Ready to use right out of the box

J. Tyler, Amazon
11 January 2007
  • Summary: I've owned other Flight Sticks but had to install drivers and calibrate them. I took this out of the box and plugged the receiver into a USB port and XP found new hardware and installed all drivers required. I never did install the software that came with the Flight Stick since all features needed for my Flight Simulator where already available. Its simple to adjust for comfort and can be setup for left handed operation.
