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.
