Summary: As of writing (24/6/2007), there are, to my knowledge, no drivers for Vista. If I'm wrong, please let me know where to get them (I have tried the obvious places i.e. Saitek, MS, and FS sites).
Summary: This could actually be a pretty good stick if it wasn't for the fact that its calibration is constantly getting out of whack. I'm using the stick for flight sims only (mostly Warbirds) and I'm sick and tired of having to press F12 in the game to reset the stick's center position every 20 seconds or so. That makes this stick essentially useless to me.
Summary: The controller lasted one day until it broke. That's it. My computer no longer recognizes it. And because I am overseas I have to pay a fortune to take advantage of the warranty. It is now in my trash can.
Summary: This joystick has a good grip and feel, but when using it there are a few major problems. It constantly stops responding and needs to be recalibrated. And it always drifts to the left when it is working after moving it. I am currently looking for a new one because of this joysticks poor quality.
Summary: Just bought this stick. Great look and feel. Good action on throttle and x and y axis. BIG Problem-Saitek knows about it. In MechWarrior4 all version and Need for Speed most version, tends to "fade" to the left. When twist is used, that feature also "pins" to the left and cannot be corrected. The updated driver available on Microsoft's website does not completely correct the problem. It just fades alittle slower.
