Summary: Picked this up for playing Elite: Dangerous. Haven't had a game that effectively used a joystick for a long time. Construction seems solid. The lighting up with input is kind of annoying, but survivable. Lots of buttons are a definite plus.
The throttle seems a little weak- not real bad but needs some work and could be better made

Summary: I have only had this stick for two days now. Over all it seems to be well made except for two things. The trigger has to much free travel before the guns really shoot. The throttle seems a little weak- not real bad but needs some work and could be better made.
Excerpt: The good: No dead zone like my other two sticks (Extreme 3D Pro and X52), easy to use right out of the box, heavy weighted base keeps it from slipping around, very precise in movement-to-targeting (less chance to oversteer).The bad: Stick length is a little short, so my (average size) hand feels a...
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Setup, Heavy Base, Improved Game Play, No Dead Zone, Very Precise
Cons: Lack Of Buttons, Not Ergonomic, Poor Throttle Design, Short Stick Length
Summary: This worked right away on my macbook pro (mid 2010). I simply had to assign the button keys to my choosing. There is no pre-defined definition for this joystick but there the basics (pitch, roll .yah) are built in. Just define (or redefine) the buttons on the thrustmaser t-160000m pamphlet.
Excerpt: I have used the joystic for 1 week now to play some of my favorite old x-wing/tie-fighter games recently re-released by GOG. This stick is more than I need for these games. I love the comfort and feel and response even on these older games.
Excerpt: Product has virtually no deadzone and great overall build quality. I would have preferred more buttons on the stick, rather than the ones on the base. The ambidextrous nature makes it an excellent stick for dual stick configurations and the only stick with better overall accuracy is the Thrustmaster...
Pros: Ambidextrous, Good build quality, No Deadzone, Preciseaccurate, Value
Excerpt: This is one solid stick, couple this with a good throttle and you will not be sorry! This replaced an aging x-52 that was developing dead zones, pretty happy so far! Works great in Star Citizen.
Summary: pros: It has good tension all around. It returns to center very well, which is very important for highly maneuverable fighters or a sensitive autopilot. It's very sensitive with little deadzone. I can make small adjustments where the stick is barely moving. Rudder works and feels good.
but they feel responsive and maybe a tad bit better made than the moving one's on the stick itself

Summary: I use this as a left handed secondary for elite: dangerous, it is probably more sensitive than my other stick, buttons have a little bit of a clackety noise that feels cheap, and the factory screw on the base to switch to left handed was so tight I accidentally stripped it and had to use an...
