New joystick needed

Recommended Posts

Hi all, time to upgrade. My Saitek Evo joystick has finally ended its usefull life (almost 10 years - the darn thing refuses to roll left)!

 

Any suggestions what's out there? Nothing fancy, anything under $100 will do!

I use a Thrustmaster T.Flight Stick X. The T.Flight Hotas X seems the same with a better, but bigger, throttle control. The Stick version has 12 buttons; not the best but enough for me. It's also quite cheap compared to most other sticks. More info here http://www.thrustmaster.com/en_UK/products/tflight-stick-x

This Thrustmaster isn't the best, but not bad. Has a throttle that can be separated from the joystick if you prefer a more comfortable position.  Rudder is a twist rudder in the joystick handle.  A few programmable buttons on both the throttle and joystick.  Used to be around $50.

That's what I have now and after about a month I've gotten used to the detent (use it as a cheap cruise control sometimes) and yeah i could like any stick, use moar buttons but for Arma 3 its enough and with modifiers works well with SF2 and DCS.  Overall I'm happy with it though sometimes the detent is still a little bit annoying and as Geary said, breaking it into two pieces (by design now....) makes it a bit easier to spread out and relax and fly with it.
