Summary: I would suggest a different manufacturer, catz has always been know for a good get you buy controller or etc... but the quality of the service is terrible.
Pros: stick seems to be good and thruster is nice as well- in the sense of quality, now if I could only buy one that worked. out of the box the thing did not work. I was confident buying from, the high review so I figured why not. joystick doesn't work at all so now I need to go through the whole proce...
Cons: its a gamble of whether you get a working one or not.
Everything else works great, but this is a deal breaker

Summary: For some reason the adjustable piece for your hand will not stay put when adjusted. I would expect a 200 dollar item would work as desribed and be quality enough to function correctly. Everything else works great, but this is a deal breaker.
Summary: The joystick is beautiful to look at and feels great in the hand. I had the Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Flight Stick and like it very much but when I started to play Elite Dangerous this stick just did not have enough buttons and Coolie hats or POV Hats.

Summary: look me up on steam and contact me if you have any questions.
Cons: The flash of the joystick as it loses power to the joystick. i can be in a bank and holding the stick and the joystick will flash/turn off and when it comes back on, it will reset the throttle as if the bank i'm holding is center. This major flaw has put me into the ground numerous times and is e...
Summary: Got it for my Father for Xmas to play Warthunder. The two stage trigger was broken right out of the box. How do these pass QC when the MAIN BUTTON isnt even tested. I could deal with a another button not working, but the trigger? We lubed it and cleaned it, but nope, its a hardware failure.
Pros: button functionality, so many different ways to program buttons.
Cons: main stick is EXTREMLY loose in comparison to what i would call high end hotas systems. and then there are the drivers and customer support....or rather lack there of. constant crashing of the SST programing software forces me to restart my system each time it does go down, and this is a completl...
