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. Only 4 stars because it doesn't have a physical feedback feature, no vibration or resistance while gaming. That's all that I think is missing.
Summary: well worth what i payed for it the only cons are fixed if you spend more money on a better stick but i recommend this one if you want a cheap one just to get in the door with flight Sims
Pros: 1. very responsive and smooth (i use it in warthunder these days) 2. love the locking nut for the rudder as sometimes i like to use buttons for that instead 3. well made im not afraid that i will break the thing as i use it 4. the tension dial on the bottom is a very nice feature
Cons: 1. the stick is too easy to twist so in some games i have to have the dead zone for the rudder high so i don't lose control of my plane 2. the mapping and reset button should be less prone to getting stuck 3. i kinda wish it was a bit more comfortable to use with my left hand (for when i need my right to use the mouse ect) 4. button 3 isn't really usable in its position imho
