Summary: But nothing a screw driver cant fix. The top plate that has the directional hat and top 2 buttons was loose so when you pulled the trigger in the front it would lift up. taking the screws out of the handle and re-seat it and your good to go. doesn't exactly inspire confidence in the product though.
Summary: This product is built quite sturdy. Other than the fact that programming the joystick is limited as there is no CD program software as previous versions have had, it works quite well. I am disappointed that no software accompanies the product.
Summary: I bought this stick was in a pinch and on a budget,i honestly am not all that pleased with the button lay out the HAT switch is off set and at least for me feels awkward.The stick is very comfortable very nice grip feel.The buttons on the base a virtually flush with the surface of the base and that means you have to look down to find them taking your eyes off the screen,anyone who flys combat simulation knows thats NOT ideal.
Summary: This is by far not a super high quality Joystick but it was worth every penny that I paid for it, which wasn't much. It works with all of the simulator games that I play and has a lot of configurable buttons.
Summary: It is very impressive to look at, seems solid and promises a lot. But, after very good simulation for three days, the throttle did not work. Also the flaps was intermittent in their activation. I was vey disapointed to say the least as I was enjoying the control the Joystick was giving me over the aeroplane, very realistic. I have not lost confidence in the product and look forward to a replacement to see if my item was a fluke.
Summary: I guess you get what you pay for. I was hoping to find an alternative to the now discontinued MS Sidewinder sticks I've been using for years. This isn't it. It's not bad for the price but not nearly as precise as the old Sidewinder. The buttons feel cheap and a bit "sticky".
