Worth Considering // Quality & Precision

Summary: Purchased for use with the recently released (Dec 2014) Elite: Dangerous, my gaming history rarely needed a top-of-the-line joystick but due to the details and sim nature of ED, high end is required. After searching, there aren't many solid choices for joysticks currently on he market.
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.
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.

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.

Needs a little "fine tuning" for helicopter flight

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

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.
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.
