Great Flight Controller
Posted by: cithatch from: pemberton, nj on
being wary of the realization thats it's a flight stick with "weak points" . I bought this for my 11 year old, explained the importance of treating it gently right away because of the possible weak points (He's an obedient kid like that), and he's been using it for about 3 weeks now for Flight Sim X and Aces High, absolutely no durability issues.
Installation, I have Windows XP Home, and I installed the software first, and "waited" for the software to instruct me when to plug in the controller (some of my other external equipment wouldnt install without waiting for the software, so i assumed the same with this). No trouble at all, worked easily first try.
Nice throttle control built into the front, the controller also has a "twist" control which i though was cool, kind of like a "motorcycle grip", anyways, our games responded well to the full range of motion, all the buttons worked, etc. I reccomend.

Great Performance, Excellent Price
Posted by: CJohnson from: Bakersfield, CA on
I always research my products that I purchase. This was one of the best joysticks I've ever used. Not only because of the amazing quality for the price, but because it can be very difficult to find a joystick with just the right tension. Many allow even the lightest of touch to move which makes it very difficult for smooth accurate flying. Tension makes the stick feel more realistic as well as easy to use especially for flight sims. Works for Windows 7 (may need to download updated drivers from website) and software allows for fully programmable buttons and axis'. I use mine on WIndows 7 for Battlefiled 2 and I prefer it over my friends Saitek X52 Joystick.
Con- Although you won't find a better joystick for the money and even verses some more expensive models, the other reviews are totally correct when it comes to the Handle Twist function (used for tail rudder) becoming off center. Mine seems to favor the left just slightly. Unplugging and plugging back into the PC helps center again but not always. Calibrating won't help. Might just be a side effect of having a twist handle joystick. This is the only reason I don't give it a perfect 5.0 rating.

I got this joystick years ago and it still works great. I bought HAWX a few months ago and have been loving the joystick since it's fully compatible with the game. I had to change around a few buttons to get it to work to my liking, but overall I'm completely satisfied. I'm confused with the PS2's USB capability, but I'm sure that if I did it right I could set it up to play Ace Combat 0 on the PS2, which would OWN.
Of course, it has some downsides. While it's widely compatible, it's a tad difficult to control and takes a while to get used to. I notice that it shifts around slightly when I'm forced to suddenly change direction, which throws me off a lot. If it were a bit heavier, it probably wouldn't shift as much, and the joystick would be easier to control. It's also a bit stubborn depending on the platform that it's on.
Overall it's a great product for its price, and while I'm considering getting a more realistic joystick for Christmas, I'll still love this if I don't get one.

Great joystick for the money
Posted by: Antiace from: Lake oswego, Oregon on
This is a very good product for the money, it would be a great joystick for the beginner just getting into flying simulations or even an expert simulations pilot just looking for a good joystick for the money. Some of the things I like about the joystick is it seems to be well built and it has 12 programmable buttons plus a throttle, and a hat switch witch is good for looking around your plane the only thing I don't like is that the hat switch is not clickable and it's kinda hard to use accurately to look at an angle but it is pretty easy to look forwards backwards and left or right, and the joystick also has a rest for your hand to rest on, witch I use a lot on long flights. Some things I don't like is the seem that runs down the center of the stick that has some ruff spots, and another problem I have is the trigger. The problem I have with the trigger is that it will shoot if you push up on it from underneath witch can cause you to accidentally shoot off a couple bursts every once in a while with your middle finger while pulling back on the stick or just angling your hand, but you get use to it . But over all I think this is a good joystick for the price and is well worth taking a look at for a first joystick or an expert wanting a good stick for the money.i hope this review will help whoever reads it.

Solid stick so far after 6 months
Posted by: CroMagSD from: San Diego, CA on
I've had this for about six months and it's proved to be very reliable under daily usage. I play mostly Rise of Flight and IL2 with it and have slammed it around quite a bit (Fokker on my six, you understand). No problems at all and it feels just as solid as the day out of the box. I love the feel of it too. Good fit for large hands on long missions.
I previously used a Microsoft Sidewinder 2 for eight years (!) and finally needed to replace it. I was reluctant to try another brand, but this has been a good choice. Rudder controls are very smooth as well.
Only issue is it seems to have some software compatibility issues with some games. Buttons show up under the wrong number on the game panel so I have to calculate the difference. No biggie, but it's a thing.
Very pleased with this purchase and would recommend for any flight simmer.

Works great for me
Posted by: Peanut from: on
I have been World of Warplanes and my old worn out joystick would no longer move all the way to the left. I loved the feel of the old stick, but it was time to change. I reviewed a bunch of them and all the reviews said that this was the best for the money. I didn't think I would like it, but figured I would give it a try. I am very impressed. The feel is comfortable, the controls responsive, the base is very well weighted and World of Warplanes recognizes all the buttons and axis's. My in-game scores have increased immensely. If there is one negative, it would be the throttle control that to my mind works backwards. I have to pull it back to increase power where I was more used to forward for power. I am used to it now so not deal breaker, but every time I use it, I still go hmmm. I am very happy with this joystick even though it isn't all that attractive to me.

You know, I see so many products with reviews stating a product not working right out of the box, or breaking after a short time. I tend to ignore these and concentrate on the reviews that appear to have been written by someone with an IQ over 50.
I have owned my Extreme 3D PRO for over 5 years now with no troubles. Only now am I having some minor issues with it, and tell you what...I will buy this one again.

If you play any game that has a jet or helicopter, such as Battlefield 3/4 then this is a must have. It is so much better to fly jets with this versus using the keyboard and mouse.
Setup was easy, I had my controller configured in game and ready to go in about 10 minutes or less.

Joystick... With a Twist
Posted by: from: Los Angeles, CA on
Plenty of buttons, all well-placed and responsive. Wide base allows me to use it comfortably in my lap. The only thing I take issue with is that on the Specifications tab, the joystick is listed as being "universal" (that is, for use with either the left or right hand), but it's with one-hundred percent certainty designed only for a right-handed user, hence the low rating on Design (though I imagine for a righty it would be a fantastic design). There is no way to switch the grip, and the presence of all the "extra" buttons on the left (as well as a thumb-button on the left side of the stick itself) make it perfectly clear, though the website advertises it as being ambidextrous.

Great Joystick Ruined by Defective Manufacturing
Posted by: BabaBooie from: Orlando, FL on
I love the feel of this joystick, it's nice and heavy so it sits still on your desk. The buttons are all in the right place, it has a rudder via twisting the main stick, it has a nice simple throttle, overall the physical design is brilliant.
So why did I give it one star? Well, unfortunately the brilliant physical design is hopelessly crippled by a sub-par USB interface. Something in the design of the USB internals is causing the stick to almost immediately have problems being recognized by windows. It would also just flake out in the middle of a game and windows wouldn't see it any more.
I thought this might be an isolated occurrence but this is the second one I bought and that one died after just 3 months of very light use.
I guess it's a testament to how much I liked the stick that I went back for another one and am almost considering a third, I just wish they'd fix the USB internals.
