5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: It's a CH product, VERY high quality, good for its intended purpose. Long lasting, never had a problem with it.

Cons: Don't like the position of the throttle placement, it makes it difficult to use.

Other Thoughts: I'm used to a complete flight control system (own a Saitek X52 system) but this is the perfect backup should that die out on me.

5 out of 5 eggsBuilt To Last

Pros: Quality, Durability, Flexibility, Accuracy

Lots of programmable switches and buttons to setup the way it feels best for your style of play. Lasts for ages of HARD playing.

Please see "Other thoughts"

Cons: I would be lying if I said there was one

Other Thoughts: I have the Analog version of this stick (as well as the pro throttle and pro pedals) I have been using these since the 90's!!! You cannot kill them. I have been flying combat sims since Red Baron DOS. CH Products have stood the test of time. I have tried other brands and styles, they all died a rapid death, CH Products has outlasted and outperformed them all. My only regret is that due to a change in job, I cannot afford these in USB. You will have this stick for a long time unless your house is taken out by a tsunami.

5 out of 5 eggsLike a Plastic Tonka Truck

Pros: Longetivity, Toughness, Accurate, Stays Put, Smooth Spring action on gimbals, A button for everything, Easy setup, Long cord, you can buy replacement parts if anything does ever wear out and this takes alot, more than most can muster!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cons: Not many, takes a little getting used to the free swinging handle, but once you got it its oh, so precice. Programing software takes a little time to understand but easier than the rest by a mile. Expensive but worth twice as much.

Other Thoughts: I have used these for years. I play games sometimes 16 hrs a day or more.... I know get a life. I have used mine everyday for about 12 years, and in this time I have purchased 1 Combat Stick and 1 Fighterstick. After 5 years or so the trigger quit on the combat stick. Rather than replace parts I wanted the then new usb Fighterstick. Only recently has it begun to wear. I will be ordering new gimbals and off Ill go kicking some *$# again!!!!!!

5 out of 5 eggsGet it

Pros: I've had one for about 5 years and it's the best stick I've ever had. I see someone complained about it doesn't twist for rudders......That's what rudder pedals are for. I went through two other sticks in less than a year before buying this one (with rudder pedals and a throttle) and I don't think I'll be replacing them any time soon. I've got hundreds of programmable buttons between the stick and throttle, and the software for it is incredible. If you can dream up a command, you can put it on a button or axis. Flaps down at 30% elevator, etc.

Cons: None

Other Thoughts: CH makes the best flight sim peripherals on the market. You can get a $50 stick down town, but it works like a $50 stick you bought down town, and you'll be buying another one in 6 months.

5 out of 5 eggsGet what you pay for

Pros: Full sized- not everyone who uses computers have tiny hands.
Large range of motion
Physical trim knobs (x,y)
Ample number of switches with some placed in easy to reach spots and others not so (good for that landing gear or drop munitions button)

Cons: No adjustable spring tension/spring tension is too light- I am not a professional pilot, so I don't know if the fancy jets have this light of a pull, but I can tell you a C182 doesn't.

Not a real con, but it's light for it's size. I was hoping for at least another 8oz. but so far that hasn't come into play.

Throttle lacks a physical mark/detent for locating it before starting the sim. Again, not a huge issue, a little white out or nail polish and you have your mark (I fly the scenarios a lot in sims so with out knowing whether I will start in a flying position, on the ground or whatnot, I like to set my throttle to ~50%)

Other Thoughts: I haven't used the software yet, so I cannot comment as to the quality of it, but this is supposed to be about the stick, not the supporting gadgets anyways.

The springs are a little noisy as one person stated, but I fear this is the nature of the beast. I would presume it is using two springs for each axis (1 for +X and 1 for -X) in order to prolong their life. Dealing with a little noise for some serious life expectancy is fine imo.

A few comments have been made about the Z-axis. Let me attempt to clarify for some. Back when people first started buying joysticks for this type of venture, there was only X and Y. The masses wanted a throttle so we got Z. Until maybe a decade ago, there never was anything to confuse this with. In defense of CH, they say quite clearly "– X, Y, and Z axes for Aileron, Elevator, and Throttle control" so if you expect anything less or more, it is your own short-coming.

3 out of 5 eggsMajor disapointment

Pros: Appears to be nice quality but I've had it for less than one day so can't say for sure.

Cons: The specs list three axis controls. Incorrectly I assumed that was three axis on the stick itself. This is not correct. The stick does not twist for the Z axis. It only has X and Y axis, The "Z" axis is a throttle wheel. This is a real far stretch to say it is a Z axis. Looks like I will be returning this.

5 out of 5 eggsTop of the line.

Pros: Precise, durable, rugged, precise, hardware centering, 4 hats (1 is 8-way), VERY precise, plug and play no drivers necessary, excellent trigger action, did I mention how precise this thing is? Excellent warranty. The best simulator grade stick for PC games on the market, and I should know by now, I've used about all of them.

Cons: Would get a C+ for comfort. It does the job, but only just. However, this stick is not about comfort, it is about precision, realism, and quality of manufacture. Also expensive, but you get what you pay for. CH software can be a bit confusing.

Other Thoughts: I have written reviews for each of the high end CH products that are available on newegg (fighterstick, pedals, throttle, and quadrant). I've spent almost 1500 on flight simulator gear in the past year because I kept buying things that broke or were not very good. I've owned and either broke or sold far too many products to list here (including both X52s), I've mixed and matched countless stick/throttle combos, but CH is easily the best. The only thing other companies do better than CH is make their stuff prettier and more comfortable to use. CH provides superior precision, durability, quality control, and an outstanding warranty. In addition, they have legendary support for user modifications, scripting, and customization. They have very fast customer support through email and forums. Once you take the plunge you will accept nothing else, something I didn't fully appreciate until now. If you worship quality and precision, CH deserves a place on your desk.

5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: Another fantastic and realistic product in the CH line. Ch builds the most realistic sticks that actually resemble the military device they are emulating in both function and design. I've owned predecessors to this solely because they looked and felt like the standard grip on all Sikorsky helicopter cyclics, but was won over by its function as well.

Cons: Its true that it doesn't quite reflect the feel of a helicopter cyclic, but that's something that we helicopter pilots are used to. Its unfortunate, but there isn't a good simulation of a collective either. That doesn't take away from this stick at all.

Other Thoughts: For all the people complaining about size, button placement and the lack of rudder twist, get over it. You buy this stick for realism. Its patterned after a real stick. The buttons and size are what they are. Your not supposed to fully grip the handle when using the upper trim buttons. The coolie hat is a refinement tool. The others are for programmed functions such as weapon selection, computer selection, etc. They aren't something you constantly use. And it doesn't have rudder twist because its an artificiality that other companies have built in. If you're using CH, buy rudders if you want yaw control. Ch is about a realistic experience, not about convenience or making the control of an aircraft overly simplified. If you want over simplification, buy something else.
