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.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome Joystick

Pros: Stability, Reliable and AWESOME!

Got this stick mostly for ARMA2 and upcoming ARMA3 and I love it! Stick was pretty much set up by default and works awesome, all I had to do was set my extra buttons up.

Cons: When separated it becomes unstable but nothing a few sticky pads can't fix. I prefer it together though.

Other Thoughts: If your looking for a awesome reliable joystick and don't want to dish out over $50 buy this joystick you will not regret it.

4 out of 5 eggsWorks well with PlanetSide 2

Pros: Well made for the price. Easy to set up on both Windows 7 and 8.

Cons: Almost unusable with joystick and throttle attached to each other.

Other Thoughts: PlanetSide 2 won't load on Windows 8 with this joystick, or any one that I tried.
