Summary: With the weighted base, the t-16000 doesn't move. The only "trick" was to get a small night stand, so that I could drop the elevation, relative to my sitting height. Once I did that, operation was smooth and fully functional.
Some great points and some OK ones, over all the best available

Summary: PROS: -The Hall-effect sensors in the base are both precise and accurate. -The annoying green LEDs in the base that come on when you move the joystick are easy to disable via desoldering a single wire from the PCB.
Summary: It's a great Joystick, very responsive, but the bright green LED light that shines up at you from around the sick every time you move it..... is annoying, especially in a low lit room. Break out the black tape.....
Summary: Advertising it as a 16 button stick is a little of a stretch, because the same-side hand buttons are very inconvenient to use (the right side buttons for right handers). I use them for infrequent commands; like retracting landing gear.
Watch out for the words "smooth" and "frictionless" - They don't apply to this flight stick!

Summary: I bought this T-16000M flight stick (along with a CH Products Pro Throttle) after my long-used and abused Thrustmaster HOTAS X finally died after more than 6 years. I bought this because the website description directly mentions a smooth, frictionless response.
Summary: I bought this stick as a replacement for my aging Microsoft Sidewinder 3D Pro and it fills the job wonderfully. Pros: -Insanely accurate X and Y axes, no physical deadzone on either, yet the stick perfectly centers itself every time.
Summary: The stick: Very impressed with the operation of the stick. It is smooth. I use it to play on line with an old game called "Descent". Once set up in control panel (Win XP) the game found the stick and it set up fine. Given the game was first introduced in the mid 90's that was a concern.
