Fantastic mid-tier joystick.

Summary: For anyone getting into the world of flight simulators, and wanting something a bit more advanced than a logitech, this is pretty much the perfect flight stick. I mean at the price its given, it's pretty much the full package. Wish it had force feedback though. The controls are just tight enough to provide the right amount of resistance, and there's plenty of buttons and switches to map to your desire.
Summary: I'm glad I finally broke down and bought this product after reading about it for years. It has more features than are necessary and lots of buttons and switches that are all programmable. The only thing I wish was that the joystick would have adjustable tension but it's only one setting. Not that it's a bad setting, but I think a stick of this price range should be adjustable.
Summary: I purchased this controller to replace my Cyborg X joystick which had gone bad. The new controller has a TON of features, is well supported in the various flight sims that I've tried it with and is easy to program with the included "Smart" software that allows users to create their own custom configuration files.
Summary: Although software for this stick is not the "best" and took a while with other software to tune it up it works great. all and all for the money and the quality yea really can't go wrong with this product. Would like to see some better software setup but other than that its a work great and feels great. Bought this stick for War Thunder for info and its worked really well in full real battle. side note, works with windows 8 64bit.
Summary: The last joystick I had only had a trigger and one button. WOW this is quite the advance. I'm still learning all of what it can do. The only downside to this was the included software and drivers. The included software and drivers are not even close to the latest and it took a little bit of effort to find the most up to date software and drivers.
Summary: Really a must for flight simmers. This unit is feature filled with programmable buttons, informative LED screen, can be used with any flight sim or just a game. I have gotten numerous hours out of this, both in X-Plane and MFX and found it to be a necessity more than conveniance when using fight simmers. It immerses you into the actual flying concept that you are doing it, nmot the keyboard or computer.
