Great flightstick, based on the F-16 handle

Casey, Amazon
15 December 2014
  • Summary: Great flightstick, based on the F-16 handle. Quality hats and switches, precise movement and built in x and y trim with a throttle wheel (programmable). Pairs with the CH Products Pro Throttle + Pedals for one of the best HOTAS systems on the market. As with all CH Products it has a 90's look to it, especially the base. Personally the only thing I would change is to reduce the size of the base, otherwise works great.

Nothing fancy, just a great classic stick.

Praxis, Amazon
25 October 2014
  • Summary: Classic CH stick, now with even more functions. It's good and accurate, tons of buttons which don't have long throws so you don't screw up your aim. Software looks like it is from the early 90's but it rocks. It has a light touch which is nice and doesn't introduce fatigue. Great for big hands. My hands are a bit on the small side so I have to reach a little for the red missile button and 8-way POV hat. Will last a long, long time.

The absolute best stick I've ever used

C. Beard "I have not gone where I intended to..., Amazon
8 October 2014
  • Summary: The absolute best stick I have owned. You aren't paying for a robust software package you won't use. You aren't paying for 3,567,876,987 buttons you can program and never use. You are paying for a great quality stick that is built like a tank and very accurate. I've been a gamer since the 80's and have alway used sticks in the $100 range so I'm used to decent models, this is untouchable.

This is by far the best flightstick I have ever used

Christopher Bradford, Amazon
11 September 2014
  • Summary: This is by far the best flightstick I have ever used! It has just the right balance of build quality, performance, and cost for me. Pros: Built like a tank VERY precise Has high quality buttons and pots Excellent software Good price Cons: Has a light centering spring and a large through (This does not bother me, but it may not be to some people's taste) It is rather plain looking Won't make me breakfast

Jin & Vodka, Amazon
10 September 2014
  • Summary: I bought this along with the CH Prothrottle as a fan of Falcon BMS and DCS World; the two complement each other well with all of the necessary switches, and multiaxis hat switches required to fly military grade aircraft I considered this alongside the Saitek Rhino X55 but was discouraged by the number of poor quality control on the part of Saitek (that's a combined throttle and stick for $200): For those considering Saitek: Buyer BEWARE, do your research and consider...

Needs a little "fine tuning" for helicopter flight

Rehabber "Steve", Amazon
23 August 2014
  • Summary: I purchased MicroSoft's Flight Simulator and CH's yoke for flying fixed wing aircraft. I needed a flightstick for flying helicopters and I was so pleased the the performance of CH's yoke I bought their flightstick. I'm impressed with the programmability of the buttons but I did find one drawback with the stick. I'm a licensed helicopter pilot and the cyclic control on a real helicopter has no neutral detent as this stick does.

Don't waste money on anything else. This is the best!

Kevin McCluney, Amazon
2 August 2014
  • Summary: Flight simulator fans have special requirements of their controllers. In a game with several hundred possible control inputs, you need something with enough buttons at hand, as well as exact, precise inputs along the X, Y and Z axes to control your virtual craft with precision. I've tried many joysticks in my couple of decades worth of flight simming, but this one is the best one I've used.

Best Joystick since the CH Pro

Jamie Kerr, Amazon
20 June 2014
  • Summary: I have read almost all of these reviews and they pretty much say what is important about this joystick. The most important thing, is build quality and precision of movement! This stick is very precise and the lighter spring feels very good, it is about the same as my X52. No fatigue at all and I can focus fighting my enemy, not fighting the joystick. Even though this product is older, it is a tried and true design. It is used in flight simulators around the world.

Needs to be clamped down

Victor F. Dilorenzo "bob saget", Amazon
28 February 2014
  • Summary: Well, this is a very popular stick and a lot of people love it. Im a novice, never used a joystick before so I can't really speak to how good it is. The one thing I can speak to is how the base is designed. I wish it had some way to screw it down. The base is inadequate to keep it firmly planted, it doesn't slide but it lifts. If you buy this, also buy some clamps to clamp it to your desk.
