Summary: This is my first gaming stick, and it's very nice. If your game lets you adjust dead zone, you might wanna turn it all the way down: the spring that holds the stick upright is often loath to let it move out of its home position, and it takes a little too much force to get it out of that position. Other than this, it's a good, comfortable stick with plenty of buttons. You'll like it for any flight simulator-like application.
Great ambi stick, I strongly recommend for beginners - vets!

Summary: Just got it, will update this review in a week - month with actual usage info. Pros: Well packaged. The stick has just the right amount of resistance to allow good feedback, but still not wear you out after a few hours flying. The base looks odd, but grips most any surface very well, and has enough weight that I'm not worried about aggressive flying. 7 buttons (13 with a shift), a hat, throttle control, and rudder twist on the stick.
Summary: Only issue with this flight stick was it does not have enough forward stability. Pushing forward the spring is strong enough to lift the back of the base from the table. The front silver feet need to extend further forward.
Summary: I like it but the accelerator lever in the back is a little awkward when you have to adjust that constantly while flying. The twist motion is a little stiff and wants to snap to its original position harshly. Even turning, it wants to snap back. Don't know if other flying sticks are like this but it makes turning harder to fine tune. Seems like the spring is too stiff.
Cheap and ambidextrous, but the hat lacks precision.

Summary: I needed a few ambidextrous joysticks to set up a game test and ended up with a couple of these and a couple Logitech Attack 3s. My players were split on which they liked better. Personally, I prefer the feel of the Attack 3, but the V.1 has more thumb buttons as well as the hat.
Summary: I see no reason this stick wouldn't work for any person, on any game. I personally use it to drive "Mechs" in Hawken. I'm here to order another Flight stick v.1...dual sticks are gonna be a blast!
