Great joystick for the price

Jim, B&H Photo
10 August 2014
  • Excerpt: I really appreciate it after my last joystick -- I bought it to replace a Logitech, the stick of which was at a horrible uncomfortable angle, and some buttons stopped working, to boot! It's reversible to be left/right handed by swapping some parts out, or you can do what I did and remove the thumb-rest from the side, and make it neutral. Additionally, it has a potentially annoying hand-rest, but if you rotate it to face the front, it gets mostly out of your way.
  • Pros: Adjustable, Comfortable, Precise
  • Cons: Annoying Light-up Base, Flimsy Throttle, Flimsy Throttle Trigger, Flimsy Trigger

  • Summary: Great joystick for the price. Accurate and precise. Dead zone is barely noticeable and it favors one direction slightly more than the other in the dead zone. Good joystick for lefties.

Thrustmaster T-16000M Flight Stick

M. Birdsall "deepfish65", Amazon
13 May 2013
  • Summary: Overall a great stick. The throttle seems pretty flimsy and tough to do small adjustments with due to very little resistance in sliding. As it's new I don't expect this to get better over time only sloppier. Other than that the movement of the stick is crisp. I am still trying to find a good replacement for my Saitek Cyborg Gold 3D. I have yet to find a reasonably price stick with all the features those stick had.

Thrustmaster 16000M

CesArango, Amazon

  • Summary: While not a complete HOTAS system. Thrustmaster 16000M is great for it's price. Very precise and no unusual drifting during hands-off flight without autopilot set. Am using it for IL-2 1946 Sturmovik, DCS A10 and Black Shark 2 as well as FS2004 and FSX. I am convinced this would suit any budget minded Sim Gamer. Now, if Thrustmaster could add a throttle unit w/o exceeding budget minded gamers like me, this would be a superb product.

puts the joy back in joystick

  • Summary: It would've gotten 5 stars, but my last Thrustmaster's trigger went bad and this is my second one, so I'm being cautious in my review. But, compared to the previous Logitech that I had (a real p.o.s.) it's great! As long as the trigger or any other function doesn't fail, it's the best joystick I've used (for PC Battlezone I/II/TRO and MS Flt Sim X).

Best joystick I have bought only one issue.

Andrew Roberts, Amazon

  • Summary: I have had this joystick for about 6 months now and I have to say that it is by far the best joystick I have owned. The control and precision is phenomenal! I also have a X52 and it has been collecting dust. The only downside to the stick is that when I was transporting it one day the throttle nob came off and the way it was designed makes it close to impossible to glue or reattach so when I go to use it the throttle occasionally falls off.

Solid stick

Greg K (HT/PC guru), Amazon

  • Summary: I bought this to replace a Logitech Extreme. The previous joystick was great at first but ran into calibration issues. This one does not have quite as many buttons but it has good feel and is very sturdy. I use it with FPS games with Xpadder to replicate keyboard. This combination works fantastic. Very satisfied with the performance of this stick. It is very accurate and I have had no issues in the couple of months that I had it.

Very good, but could be much better

R. D. Hoag, Amazon

  • Summary: This stick replaces a Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 USB stick I have had for many years. I had seen some tech reviews and animated tested results of the advantages of the Hall effects sensors and I was very impressed. Having used the stick a bit I can say that the smoothness of the stick is excellent, there are no notch positions and it moves smoothly around in any circular motion. It's heavier then the old MS stick, 2 pounds vrs 1-1/2 pounds and it feels solid.

Good sensors, soso overall

Y. Chen, Amazon
20 June 2009
  • Summary: The sensors are good: couldn't find any deadzones in the stick movement. The resistance and springback also feels great. However, the buttons are all very flimsy and cheap (including the hat and trigger), which is regrettable. Also, the stick itself feels a tad too big, but that might be due to my small hands. Twisting motion of the stick (for rudder use) has slight detection problems.
