Purchased with throttle

hunter o., Newegg

  • 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 cannot use butterfly presses like you would use on a good trigger calibrated paintball gun.

Check Before You Leap

Mike F., Newegg

  • 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. Other games, like PS2, support non-keyboard controllers, yet you need to check the configuration window and do a manual set-up.
  • 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.

Mediocre overall but

J G., Newegg
17 January 2013
  • Summary: Like the promo sez: great starter kit.
  • 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 just a tad smaller footprint than 3D Pro but still a desk space hog.
  • 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 Pro Profiler.

for what its worth

  • 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.

Worth the Value Paid

  • 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.

Thrustmaster weaknesses

denis, Amazon
27 August 2012
  • 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.

Meh

FlyingV, Amazon

  • 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".
