Summary: I bought this primarily for use with Battlefield 3 but it seems the pieces of garbage at EA chose to either block use of any flight controllers or create software that does not permit the use of the flight controllers. Now I am stuck with this thing and I can't use it for the purpose I bought it for. I called tech support they didn't seem to care and pawned me off on EA.
Summary: I've been looking for a simple joystick for FSX. It seemed the Logitech joysticks suffered from reliability issues, so I decided to try this joystick because of the good reviews. When I received the joystick, everything seemed great, except for the throttle. I actually liked the position of the throttle on this model, which was one of the main reasons I decided to go with it. However, I was surprised to find that it seemed hard to move.
