Excerpt: Used mostly for FSX. Only has single throttle so if you fly any aircraft with multiple engines one throttle will control them all. But that's not a complaint. If you want a multiple throttle stick you'll pay multiple dollars for it. For what you pay and what this does it gets the job done.
Summary: Definitely wish I bought another Stick X to replace my broken one, instead of a Mad Catz stick.
Pros: Comfortable, sensitivity adjustment, lots of buttons on the stick, and at the base. Overall its a good stick, for 30 bucks you can't go wrong.
Cons: Lasted two years before having calibration problems, basically my planes had a tendency to bank left if I were pitching down. re-calibrating the stick would solve the problem...for 5 minutes. I had to buy a new one because of this. If your left handed, or like me, want to practice your left hande...
Summary: I would give this joystick 5 stars, but I'm slightly annoyed with it. The joystick is sized very well, works very well, has a tension adjuster on the bottom, the buttons are labeled for ease of mapping the keys in your games. It feels comfortable, and the price is great.
Excerpt: Worth the money. I'm new to the flight simulators and didn't want to spend a whole lot on a joystick as a beginner. This was an ideal purchase because it comes pre-mapped to FSX. Great value for the dollar! Very responsive and easy to use, makes the game more fun.
Summary: I like this joy stick, but if you are thinking programmable, think again. The only "programming" you can do is to switch one button with another one. you will need system magic to reprogram it outside of switching one or two buttons ON the JOYSTICK.
