Summary: It's worth it for it's price. It works great with flight sims like Flight Simulator X. It comes with 2 rudder controls that you can program. It comes with many different programmable buttons and is able to be made easier by turning a resistance knob on the bottom. Just like other Hotases, it can be detached and moved around the desk, and can be attached for compact areas. There are better ones out there, but this is the best for it's price.
Also would be nice if the controller had more weight to it

Summary: Bought this at a lower price than it currently is. I was looking for a basic HOTAS setup for playing Elite Dangerous and Star Citizen - never owned my own joystick. This is exactly what I was looking for. Only complaint is that the throttle feels a little cheap and the center deadzone is hard to feel. Also would be nice if the controller had more weight to it.
DO NOT BUY THRUSTMASTER PRODUCTS! THEY DO NOT WARRANTY THEM!!

Summary: This may be a bit lengthy but please bear with me. I purchased this through Amazon in July of 2013. This is a decent flight combination and I enjoyed this, at least up until June of 2014. When the control stick is drawn to the right, the control throws itself to the furthest setting. I would set the stick at zero, and move it to the left gradually, and I could see on the control settings it was gradually moving.
Summary: This is an amazing joystick. It brings real enjoyment to playing games on my computer. It brings an excitement and satisfaction to flying airplanes that you do not get with a standard type joystick.
Summary: If you are either new to this kind of controller or just on a budget like most of use, this is in my opinion, the best HOTAS you can buy for such little money. Durable, Easy to Learn, Smooth, Comfortable, Functional and best of all, affordable.
Pros: This is identical to my old Thrustmaster Top Gun Afterburner HOTAS with a few updates. It has PS3 and PC support, a few more buttons and programmable features and black not sliver. To all of you that might be on the fence about buying this,.. My old model was purchased by my older brother in about 2003 and handed down to me a few years later. I used it for about 6 years and used it pretty regularly. Then I handed it down to my younger brother. It still works!!
