Summary: The stick is great, the throttle is poor. Recommended unless you will be dependent on the throttle functioning.
Pros: In terms of performance, this joystick did everything I said it could. It's not spectacular, but good enough for the price. Good control and the stick didn't go floppy while I had it, functional, if somewhat crude throttle, and it didn't loose any performance until...
Cons: Just prior to writing this, the throttle stopped responding at all. Montage through the troubleshooting steps, I determined (correctly) that it was hardware failure. It has seen relatively light use in that time. Due for an upgrade anyways, I disassembled the base to investigate the cause. A wire...
Summary: I have not tried to preset mapping for the 2 profiles on my stick.
Pros: I like the hat button. It is a cheap stick. The stick seems good quality and most of the buttons are pressed easy. Quick plug and play install on Windows 8.
Cons: The trigger is a big con to me. It is hard plastic. This means my index finger is pressing on the corner of the trigger for most of my play time. The trigger feels like it should have been a two stage piece but the sensor was a cheaper model and only has one stage of firing. Because of this, I ca...
Summary: Because this flight stick (joystick) does NOT include any software please check to make sure that it will work with the program you are interested in. For playing a game such as WoW you will need a Joystick/Gamepad to Keyboard mapping program, such as xPadder.
Pros: Large, solid, base. Price. Well respected manufacture
Cons: Lacking a Joystick to Keyboard mapping software, button placement
Summary: This joystick is brand new and the thrust lever is way to loose. I have purchased several of these joysticks for myself and as gifts. The others appear to operate OK. This may have been damaged in shipment? I don't know for sure. Nor do I know if can be fixed.
Pros: Unlike some, mine works BF3 quite well but you may need to get into the BF3 settings profile to more finely tune. Looks good, great price, holding up better (crossing fingers) than a (3x) replaced 3D Pros. Like the throttle placement and its sensitivity great for chopper hovers. Curving base is j...
Cons: So far it (me) sucks on jets. Thumb rest not comfortable to me. The bottom mounted stiffness dial worked about 12 hours before it lost its gripping power and now control is considerably more sloppy than I would like. No other sensitivity adjustments, eg, no software support in that area like 3D P...
Summary: We'll see if I just got a dud. Hopefully this isn't indicative of the build quality of all of them. If that's the case, I'll try and get a refund and go with a higher end product. No use in spending less money to get a dysfunctional product. Three stars for now.
Pros: Great stick layout, comfortable, inexpensive, easy to setup, accurate when it works.
Cons: The Y axis jams periodically and will not stay centered. No matter how many times I calibrate this thing it jumps out of alignment within 1-5 minutes of use. After troubleshooting with it for about a week and making sure it's indeed a hardware issue and not a configuration one I've decided to req...
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.
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: 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...
Summary: had fox2pro stick for a year of steady use and was happy with it. this is the new version with more buttons (some are quite awkward to use). shape and lightness of the stick are same as fox2 but heard an unwelcome crunch after only 3 weeks.
