Summary: I use these along with the CH Pro Pedals. This combination works well Condor and in MSFS. The finish doesn't look that impressive, but that doesn't matter to me. The axis control consistency is good. The joystick works better for flight simulation programs than for space simulation games, though the later is helped by turning down the joystick sensitivity and being less heavy handed in button pressing. My only wish was that these were cheaper.
Summary: If you need a simple "analog" joystick look no further, this is the one. The model hasn't been changed in years and there's a good reason for that; it's hard to improve. Sturdy, reliable, with a nice weight to it, and excellent driver that allows you to configure it together with other (CHP) controllers.
Summary: I chose this because I wanted to upgrade from a simple joystick. I feel as though Saitek should include a pictured diagram of all of the buttons and their use (esp. the slider use). I would recommend to anyone who is a serious sim pilot.
Summary: I am a casual gamer/ flight sim enthusiast. This stick worked well for me and was easy to set up. It is obviously a very well made product with smooth action and crisp buttons. I look forward to purchasing their throttle lever and maybe even their peddles. I think CH's quality cant be beat.
Summary: The feel and movement CH Products Flightstick is clunky and unrealistic. The joystick has a pronounced center detent. The force required to move out of the detent is much higher than the subsequent resistance -- making smooth, small movements near center impossible. In real aircraft the control forces change smoothly and continuously from stop to stop, fore and aft, left and right -- there is no detent or dead spot in the middle.
