CH-Fighterstick

Leonard Tubbs, Amazon
24 October 2013
  • Summary: I had forgotten how large the CH brand is. I Bought this one to replace one I had retired a few years ago due not to wear and tear but to the advancement of PC's that no longer had 15 pin connectors. I hope I get just as many years use out of this one as I did the Last (9 Years). Trigger finger Button plus pinky switch and Missile launch button. 3 fourway switches and a 8 way hat switch gives this beast more than enough buttons for nearly any style of game play.

High quality flight sim controller

AJ, Amazon
25 August 2013
  • Summary: The design may be a bit aged but this product is of high quality. Observations: At first the stick seems rather bulky and plastic, but the large base ensures it doesn't shift even with large control inputs, and the plastic construction is actually very sturdy. Relatively light control pressure is required and there is a distinct feel between actuating the stick on X or Y axis, but neither detract from the experience once you get use to it.

unreal

Jeremy, Amazon
23 August 2013
  • Summary: I fly DCS a10 on a regular basis. My previous joystick was a Saitek x-52 that I thought was the bees knees. This joystick blows it out of the water. More buttons, better accuracy and much, much better sensitivity around center than the old Saitek. I feel like i could do surgery with this thing. I think it feels better than the 'center sprung' joysticks... I say this because you can feel when you're left and right versus fore and aft on the controls.

  • Summary: I replaced my old CH flightstick. This has that solid CH feel and plenty of buttons that can be programmed for Flight Sim or X-Plane.

Robust and built to last

Miles, Amazon
11 August 2013
  • Summary: While this joystick may not have modern styling and plain colors, it performs better than any joyticks I've tried. Before this I had a CH Combatstick 568 and it lasted about 10 years. The POTS may not be the most precise instruments, but for the money, this works great. Had minor issues with the Z axis spiking when the X or Y axis is in motion. Most of this was correctable with deadband or damping. Would recommend more CH products...

A great stick with a few minor issues

ZT, Amazon
20 March 2013
  • Summary: EDIT: Saitek recently released the X-55 Rhino, which in my opinion is an overall better device. I recommend that instead. I'll leave the rest of the review unaltered, but keep in mind that it reflects the market at the time it was written. I've been using the CH Fighterstick with DCS World for a few weeks now. I'm pleased with the stick overall, though there are a few minor issues.

CH Products are a good deal and so is the company that stands behind them.

  • Summary: Don't believe anyone who gave the Fighterstick a low rating. I had my original for 4 years when it developed a problem with the hatswitch. 4 YEARS! I read the reviews who claim the newer products don't hold up. I chanced buying a new one after reading the reviews. After having a conversation with a CH employee on their forum, I sent my old one back. It cost me $12.50 in shipping... Out of warranty for 3 years and they sent me a new/refurbished stick for $12.50.

love it better than the warthog

W. Forbes "Any Failure you meet is never a de..., Amazon
4 February 2013
  • Summary: I bought this to upgrade my Saitek Pro290 and what a great choice! I had tried out the Warthog but didnt like the bulky metal heavy feel. the Fighter Stick is weighted just right and great on the fly trim wheels for Rise of Flight trim directly the joystick.

Great product, made in the USA.

David Walker, Amazon
3 February 2013
  • Summary: I recently purchased the CH Pro Pedals, Pro Throttle, and Fighterstick. In terms of build quality and feel, the Fighterstick is a surprisingly large piece of equipment. I have larger hands and I find that I have plenty of room to spare. The high grade injection molded plastic is very, very heavy duty and on the base I was surprised to see that this unit is produced in the USA.
