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. I bought this to replace an old wireless Thrustmaster because it was getting old swapping batteries. No I have to readjust because the response time is a little faster with the wired joystick.
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. Thrustmaster will send you some software claiming it's a software problem.
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: 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. Star Citizen has me excited for sims again, but I bought this stick for Elite: Dangerous mostly, and it works great.

Summary: Bad Technical support The Thrustmaster Technical Support phone number is unresponsive. I was on hold for an hour, being told I was next on the queue, then it hung up. I tried calling multiple times on the next business day and got the message the office was closed. I submitted a service request that was answered five days latter, after I had already purchased another brands Flight Stick. Very frustrating!
