Nope, move to something else.

Summary: I was looking at upgrading from a Logitech to the Thrustmaster sticks due to the numerous positive reviews on their HOTAS setups. I have used this for one day and its throttle does not register properly with any game that I have (ARMA, PS2, War Thunder, Battlefield 3, and a few space sims). After attempting multiple ways to reset the axis it would never register a negative value, only positive.
If you have small hands and only stick to Flight Simulator games, you'll probably love it. Others look elsewhere.

Summary: Caveat: I have large hands, but only slightly above-average for an adult male. Pros: + Joystick feel is pretty good, adjustable tension is nice. + Lots of buttons, the hat switch feels great. + I love the styling. Cons: - Joystick is made for smaller hands than mine. This is subjective, YMMV. - Throttle and Joystick do not fit together easily. While it works, it's not quick to do by any means.
Summary: I really wanted to fly in BF3 effectively, but my typical gaming setup of keyboard and trackball made things difficult. After reading reviews I bought this to help me. Despite some reviewers mentioning it will break quickly due to its plastic construction, the product seems quite sturdy - and what isn't made out of plastic these days? After the incredibly complicated installation process of plugging it in was complete, I was finally able to play.
