Summary: The stick is great, the throttle is poor. Recommended unless you will be dependent on the throttle functioning.
Pros: In terms of performance, this joystick did everything I said it could. It's not spectacular, but good enough for the price. Good control and the stick didn't go floppy while I had it, functional, if somewhat crude throttle, and it didn't loose any performance until...
Cons: Just prior to writing this, the throttle stopped responding at all. Montage through the troubleshooting steps, I determined (correctly) that it was hardware failure. It has seen relatively light use in that time. Due for an upgrade anyways, I disassembled the base to investigate the cause. A wire...
Excerpt: I've owned several joysticks over the years. A Microsoft Sidewinder, then a Logitech Attack 3, a Saitek X52, then this. This is by far the most comfortable to use and best "feeling" joystick that I've had. Far more precise and better feeling than the X52 which is now sitting on a shelf.
Pros: Adjustable, Easy To Use, Fast Setup, Feel, Improved Game Play, Price
Pros: An inexpensive flight stick that WORKS! This purchase was my 2nd for this stick. The first one was damaged. Grandkids - soda....... Stuff happens.... I decided to upgrade to a Saitek flight stick at twice the cost. THAT was a waste of money! It was junk and reading reviews after the fact showed i...
Excerpt: The Thrustmaster joystick is a very precise unit. Responds very well to even the smallest input. My only negative comment is that because of my hand being very large I tend to activate the trim switch thats at the top of the handle, just above my index finger. Not a fault of the unit!!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Setup, Improved Game Play, Smooth Action
Excerpt: Used mostly for FSX. Only has single throttle so if you fly any aircraft with multiple engines one throttle will control them all. But that's not a complaint. If you want a multiple throttle stick you'll pay multiple dollars for it. For what you pay and what this does it gets the job done.
Summary: Definitely wish I bought another Stick X to replace my broken one, instead of a Mad Catz stick.
Pros: Comfortable, sensitivity adjustment, lots of buttons on the stick, and at the base. Overall its a good stick, for 30 bucks you can't go wrong.
Cons: Lasted two years before having calibration problems, basically my planes had a tendency to bank left if I were pitching down. re-calibrating the stick would solve the problem...for 5 minutes. I had to buy a new one because of this. If your left handed, or like me, want to practice your left hande...
Excerpt: I needed a flight stick type joystick for the new game coming out SC and a few other space combat titles. I needed combat funtionality and good response. This joystick had a good number of buttons and they were well placed. The base is solid and gives me a stable base.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast Setup, Improved Game Play, Sturdy, Twist Grip
Excerpt: I use the T.FlightStick X Joystick on my PC. I primarily play ARMA 3 and this joystick auto set pretty well to it. Only thing that didn't auto set was the throttle and that was an easy 2 second fix. Sensitivity is good and response is good. Center is perfect with no variance.
