Summary: in arma 3 you can only use the top 50% of the throttle for heli's and make sure you use the analog thrust when mapping. this is not the sticks fault at all it is arma's because they do not think people would use joysticks to fly....they prefer everyone use keyboard and mouse.
Pros: great flight stick love the layout and where all the buttons are. Use this for Bf3/4 and arma 3, great response times in both heli and jet use.
Cons: dont open my monsters and keep the cool for me....lol
Excerpt: I've been using this device for Elite Dangerous and War Thunder and have been very pleased. The build quality is great and it feels very solid to the touch.Worked instantly with most games, and set-up was effortless. Compared to other options, this is really the only Joystick/Throttle combo available for a decent price.
Summary: when i was waiting for this i was skeptical that it was too small but its actually bigger than expected it feels like the realistic size of a planes throttle and stick control aND its pretty heavy so that was great5 too!!!!!!!!!
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.
Summary: I have not used the preset function to set up different profiles. I liked the resistance on the stick to start, but you can increase or decrease joystick resistance with a dial on bottom. I might recommend another joystick with better trigger, or get a combo separately. I was new to joystick gaming for this century and wanted to update my relics. For $50 I can research other sticks and throttles for my space game ED.
Pros: I like the fact this is a HOTAS stick under $100. Most of the buttons are easy to press with an exception. the HAT on the top of the joystick is in a good place. I can easily change fire modes with the hat. Many of the throttle buttons are easy to press. The height of the stick is in a good place so I didn't need to adjust my chair or monitor. USB is about 8ft long from stick to plug.
Cons: The trigger is a big con to me. It is hard plastic. This means my index finger is pressing on the corner of the trigger for most of my play time. I cannot train myself yet to find a different part of the trigger, or use another finger to fire. The trigger feels like it should have been a two stage piece but the sensor was a cheaper model and only has one stage of firing. Because of the amount of distance the trigger takes to register, I cannot use butterfly presses. I...

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.
