Joystick shot

Recommended Posts

...looks like it. It was a bit flaky for some time but this morning I was flying a DVII and the planes nose would rise to about a 35 degree angle despite downward pressure on the stick. It would then subside after about 10 seconds, only to start again about 30 seconds later. It is not getting better either.

 

I have an 8 year old Wingman Force - an excellent stick for its time.

 

So, can one of you fine fellows give me an idea of a good FF stick as a replacement?

 

Thanks.

I just got the Logitech Extreme 3d Pro and it is excellent for the price. Got it online from tiger.

 

Good Luck, a proper joystick is essential when flying the Camel.

Uncleal:

 

How's the responsiveness on the Cyborg? Can you lock the stick so it doesn't twist? I have pedals so I don't need that feature.

If you're running pedals anyway, I'd definately go with the Logetech, if only to have a comfortable throttle

 

You disable the twisty-stick function in OFF controls anyway, as the pedals USB into your computer Direct

 

But I'm also in Florida, Ft Myers . . Watch out for those lightning strikes . . the PowerPak doesn't like them at-all

 

Yes, I hear Tampa, Florida is the lighting capital of the world and we are just about 120 miles south of there. UPS is mandatory "flight gear" for us Uncleal.
