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.
