5 out of 5 eggsTruly Remarkable

Pros: Sturdy Construction
Intelligent Button Placement
Smooth Action
Large Throttle with Solid Feel

Cons: Minor Silicone Castings Leftover
Limited Rudder Movement
Stick is Better for Smaller Hands

Other Thoughts: Go pay $35 for a joystick and see what you get, by comparison to the other sticks in the similar price bracket there's no contest. I've flown on Saitek joysticks since 2002, back when they were making quality products. Since being acquired by MadCatz, Saitek is garbage at best. Every stick I've bought form them has literally fallen apart in my hands. I didn't want to venture out and see a new brand for more than 50$. This stick is made of plastic, but not the cheap flimsy plastic, its a very heavy thick grade of higher quality than most household plastics. The buttons were all very firm and responsive, as well as within easy and intelligent reach of my fingers. The throttle is silky, and has a notch to let you know when you've hit center throttle, and made for a man's hand. The stick, however, is made for a much smaller hand, and seems to pair with the throttle oddly in that way.
The only things I immediately noticed was that there were bits of silicone that had pressed out from underneath the top plate of the stick, and that the rudder motion was limited.

5 out of 5 eggslove it

Pros: great flight stick love the layout and where all the buttons are. Use this for Bf3/4 and arma 3, great response times in both heli and jet use.

Cons: dont open my monsters and keep the cool for

Other Thoughts: in arma 3 you can only use the top 50% of the throttle for heli's and make sure you use the analog thrust when mapping. this is not the sticks fault at all it is arma's because they do not think people would use joysticks to fly....they prefer everyone use keyboard and mouse.

3 out of 5 eggsWindows 8 PLug and Play

Pros: I like the fact this is a HOTAS stick under $100. Most of the buttons are easy to press with an exception. the HAT on the top of the joystick is in a good place. I can easily change fire modes with the hat. Many of the throttle buttons are easy to press. The height of the stick is in a good place so I didn't need to adjust my chair or monitor.
USB is about 8ft long from stick to plug.

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. I cannot train myself yet to find a different part of the trigger, or use another finger to fire.
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 the amount of distance the trigger takes to register, I cannot use butterfly presses. I wish I could calibrate it like you would on a good trigger calibrated paintball gun.
The bottom of the sticks have plastic pads. This makes the stick move around if you start using the Yaw function on twisting the stick. I havn't had it come entirely off the desk so much I blame it for losses, but I did notice I kept rotating the stick counter clockwise. So, down was now 7 o'clock position.

Other Thoughts: I have not used the preset function to set up different profiles. I liked the resistance on the stick to start, but you can increase or decrease joystick resistance with a dial on bottom.

I might recommend another joystick with better trigger, or get a combo separately. I was new to joystick gaming for this century and wanted to update my relics. For $50 I can research other sticks and throttles for my space game ED.

5 out of 5 eggsMy Budget Star Citizen HOTAS

Pros: This is identical to my old Thrustmaster Top Gun Afterburner HOTAS with a few updates. It has PS3 and PC support, a few more buttons and programmable features and black not sliver. To all of you that might be on the fence about buying this,.. My old model was purchased by my older brother in about 2003 and handed down to me a few years later. I used it for about 6 years and used it pretty regularly. Then I handed it down to my younger brother. It still works!!

Now with the Star Citizen Dog Fighting Module coming out very soon, I needed a new one. I really cant afford $150+ dollars and since I had such good luck with my old one I couldn't not buy this.

Cons: none yet

Other Thoughts: If you are either new to this kind of controller or just on a budget like most of use, this is in my opinion, the best HOTAS you can buy for such little money. Durable, Easy to Learn, Smooth, Comfortable, Functional and best of all, affordable.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks well under Linux

Pros: Works great under Linux. FlightGear recognized it without a problem, with usable defaults (though I remapped some of the controls). All degrees of freedom seem to work well.

Cons: The Home button doesn't seem to be recognized under Linux, but that's hardly an issue.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks Great

Pros: Good stick. Lots of buttons, smooth actions. NO programming issues. Works great in MWO, MW4, and even MW2. Cant wait to play some up coming space games with it.

Cons: There is a spot where the resistance changes when moving the stick. It goes from very loose and smooth to tight and smooth. If you play with a lower sensitivity and use a large portion of the sticks range you will run into this spot. Takes some time to get used to the transition, not enough to dink an egg though.

4 out of 5 eggsFun Flight Joystick!

Pros: The PC, XBox & PS3 each have a default setting AND a programmable (mapping) setting you can toggle on and off, making six total settings. It worked out of the box on PS3 with HAWX and Ace Combat Assault Horizons worked after a little programming ( ). It's a lot of fun!!! Already planning to build a Flight Simmulator.

Cons: PS3 Controller buttons, L2 + R2, are not seamless for Assault Horizons, but the 1st solution (work around) in the .pdf I mentioned in Pros (above) works for me.

4 out of 5 eggsGreat Buy

Pros: Works great for the price! I use it with windows 7 and it works great. Most games reconize it right away u just need to bind the keys.

Cons: Could have a few more buttons for custom key binds.

3 out of 5 eggsSo So...

Pros: Works out of the box on my windows 8 pc. Used it for flight simulator and it all worked fine. Really long primary cord.

Cons: Not what i was envisioning. I was expecting something with a bit heavier feel to it.

It didn't feel flimsy, just was expecting a nice metal plate in the bottom to add some weight, it has some weight, just not enough for me.

It does feel light, and separating the two halves was totally strange as the cord between the two halves is short enough to NOT fit a keyboard between the halves, which i wanted to do.

Perhaps if i got a smaller keyboard i could, but not with my razer keyboard.

Would not purchase this again if i read this review, but my concerns are mine, so your milage may vary.

Other Thoughts: Perfect packaging, great instructions, love the dual purpose (PC/PS3), didn't use that but nice to see.

Purchased this manufacturer's products before and will/might in the future, just not this model.
