Inexpensive And Gets The Job Done

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.
Pros: this is a very solid joystick! it is bigger than i thought it would be and feels like a more expensive device than it is. I have programmed the buttons for use on battlefield 4 and it works great, i can finally fly a jet! (which is hard with a keyboard/mouse)
Summary: I have been suckered into to buying 5 each of these Thrustmaster T-flight sticks (being gifts to family members and friends) BEWARE they are defective products. The sliders fail in a matter of a few hours of use, then they go totally inoperative.
Pros: NONE... there are no pros, this is simply a defective product
Cons: The con is simple to explain... this is a Defective Product. Purchased 5 each and all have failed for the very same defect.
Summary: I would give this joystick 5 stars, but I'm slightly annoyed with it. The joystick is sized very well, works very well, has a tension adjuster on the bottom, the buttons are labeled for ease of mapping the keys in your games. It feels comfortable, and the price is great.
Summary: Great little starter stick. It's solid, the base is heavy enough for even my big paws, and it's simple to plug up and go. I bought it because I'm getting back into sims after not really playing them since Falcon 4.0.
