5 out of 5 eggsnice stick!

Pros: this is a very solid joystick! it is bigger than i thought it would be and feels like a more expensive device than it is. I have programmed the buttons for use on battlefield 4 and it works great, i can finally fly a jet! (which is hard with a keyboard/mouse)

Cons: no cons, love it!

1 out of 5 eggsThrustmaster Piece of Junk

Pros: NONE... there are no pros, this is simply a defective product

Cons: The con is simple to explain... this is a Defective Product. Purchased 5 each and all have failed for the very same defect.

Other Thoughts: I have been suckered into to buying 5 each of these Thrustmaster T-flight sticks (being gifts to family members and friends) BEWARE they are defective products. The sliders fail in a matter of a few hours of use, then they go totally inoperative. Thrustmaster will send you some software claiming it's a software problem. However all they do is "mask over" the existing Microsoft joy stick software (so your not really getting anything that will correct the defective joystick) also when that fails they suggest their calibration software (because obviously they already knew masking over the Microsoft joy.cpl won't fix the defect problem) and here Microsoft rejected and refused to install their calibration software. Mostly do the fact their software is outdated and totally useless, and they seem to know this as well. I said "suckered into buying" thinking this would make a nice gift for a reasonable price and provide hours of entertainment; but it only provided aggravation and disappointment coupled with a waste of good monies for what is simply a "defective product" being sold. Made in China "dirt cheap" and sold to the American public for whatever price they can bleed you for, here some outlets are asking for $80 dollars, but most outlets sell these very same flight sticks for $30 dollars. I would not only NOT RECOMMEND this product; I will WARN YOU that you are wasting your money. The idea they make a pathetic attempt to say it's a software problem, does not hide the fact; that all 5 joysticks purchased had the very same problem, being a defective slider (throttle) which of course renders the entire joystick totally useless. BUYER BEWARE and hope you heed the advice and don't waste your hard earned money.

4 out of 5 eggs

Pros: I have had no problems with this stick at all. I plugged it in and my computer recognized it right away. The stick movement is smooth and glitch free.

Cons: It's a bit on the big size but for the money is acceptable.

3 out of 5 eggsPurchased with throttle

Pros: I like the hat button. It is a cheap stick. The stick seems good quality and most of the buttons are pressed easy. Quick plug and play install on Windows 8.

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. 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 this, I cannot use butterfly presses like you would use on a good trigger calibrated paintball gun.

Other Thoughts: I have not tried to preset mapping for the 2 profiles on my stick.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks great for DCS

Pros: Works as advertised which is enough for me. Good enough resistance to pull so I dont accidentally pull to hard and fling my aircraft in to a stall which is something my old logitech did frequently. Love this thing.

Cons: None that I can think of.

Other Thoughts: I think it might be the game, DCS, so I didn't take an egg off of it, but when I hit my push to talk button on teamspeak 3, the entire joystick stops working. I haven't tested it with any other flight sim but i'm pretty sure it isn't the joystick itself, but the game.

3 out of 5 eggsCheck Before You Leap

Pros: Large, solid, base. Price. Well respected manufacture

Cons: Lacking a Joystick to Keyboard mapping software, button placement

Other Thoughts: Because this flight stick (joystick) does NOT include any software please check to make sure that it will work with the program you are interested in. For playing a game such as WoW you will need a Joystick/Gamepad to Keyboard mapping program, such as xPadder. Other games, like PS2, support non-keyboard controllers, yet you need to check the configuration window and do a manual set-up. This joystick uses the generic drivers that Microsoft released back in 2006, so it doesn't need to supply it's own, nor does it.

I have used a joystick in the past that would tilt off of my keyboard try just because it was a light-weight unit. This has some size and heft to it, and it has not raised off of the desk surface yet.

The key/button placement around the base is a bit strange. You raise the index finger of your right hand to press up on button 3 - strange at best, awkward at worst. While my right hand is on the joystick my left hand could be resting on the base, with my thumb operation the throttle, ring finger on button 5, middle finger on #6, and index finger on #7, and stretching to reach button 8. That leaves buttons 9 through 12 without a finger to operate without taking your hand(s) out of their resting place. Also, I keep my left hand on a keyboard, so buttons 5 - 12 really don't do me any good. I do think they got button #2 and the PoV (Point of View) hat switch, yet it works.

Again, check the game(s) you want to use this joystick with to make sure it is supported. If it is not then you will need to invest a few more dollars in a software program that can map the actions of the joystick, and it's buttons, to the keyboard, and mouse. And because of the rudder action of the hand grip you will want to make sure that the program supports that as well.

Because of the lack of a way to map the joystick to a keyboard/mouse I can not recommend this flight stick. Other manufactures include software to program their sticks, even in this price range, so having to spend another ten dollars does not seem correct. It does seem to be a good, sturdy, controller, yet I just can't get over the lack of any real support for games that do not have an alternative controller configuration built in. And yes, this is worth deducting one and a half eggs for (button placement is worth another half to whole egg).
