  • Summary: I had this stick for over 5 years and I have used it heavily in gaming with the flight simulator i play Aces high 2. The the top two buttons started to fall off but that was after 5 years of heavy heavy use , Its a good standard stick and its very reliable.

LEFTIES Rejoice!!

Hawaiian Eye, Amazon
28 October 2013
  • Summary: The oddball mid-stick hand platform, is TOTALLY reversible and adjustable, to make this absolutely perfect for lefties too! You can also just remove the handrest entirely. But why, when you can custom adjust not only left vs Right, but Height for the size of your palm! Custom! All buttons and levers are symmetrical. Nothing is shifted to one side, or no weird thumb grooves, as nearly all other joysticks! I couldn't believe this, when I discovered it.

ST290 Joystick

Bill C, Amazon
4 March 2013
  • Summary: Very hard to tell from picture if this has a throttle or not but it does. Also twist rudder, which is great. Had less buttons than I thought. Left right trim and flaps. There's a center button which is very easy to hit when using the right twin buttons. I had it connected to autopilot but I found it was to easy to accidentally discoonect, so I don't use the center button. For what it's designed for it's a great joystick. Think I need one with more buttons.

  • Summary: a lot of people don't seem to like the location of the throttle control but I think it works just fine. The grip is very comfortable, the buttons are very good.

Huge!

P. Kutschke, Amazon
5 December 2012
  • Summary: This joystick has performed well for me in terms of drivers (downloaded from Saitek website for Windows 7, 64 bit), button and joystick functions. I bought it to play an online flying game because the controls on my gamepad felt too "twitchy." Well, this stick has the opposite problem. With the gamepad I had the settings turned all the way down and still struggled.

Love the product!

  • Summary: Southpaw pilots rejoice! This had everything I needed and if you reverse the throttle axis it completely resolves the complaints of other reviewers saying the throttle gets in the way during operations. Also there is a blue LED light at the top of mine. I see some people saying theirs doesn't have one. The only problem I have with the joystick is because I bought it used. If it were sold in the US I would buy a brand new one right now.

A Title for Your Review

DonnieIT, Amazon
6 September 2011
  • Summary: This one is a winner, in my opinion! I have this device and used it for several years, and it was none the worse for the wear after all that. I dropped it about 47 times (my own fault) and finally broke off one of the buttons that hang out to the left and right nearest the top, but used it for another year in spite of that. When I finally decided to replace it, I looked at about a half dozen other models and their prices, and decided to reorder the exact same device.
