    Used to have fun with MS Flight Sim 95 with the keyboard as a control, but find it difficult to tell aircraft settings (elevators in particular) with the newer version ten, so decided to try a joy stick. This is the first one I've owned (aside from the kids' Atari!) so I'll defer to the experienced gamers to compare it to other sticks. Bottom line: it works fine - boots up automatically - no complaints, other than that the handle appears to have been designed for someone wearing a flight suit!

    When I bought this unit, it looked like the box had been opened before and returned. It connected to my PC , it said it recognize it and configured it - but could not get it to work or respond in any way. After messing with it for about a half hour and trying different things, I returned it.

    I have been using this joystick on both Windows 7 and Ubuntu Linux for the Flightgear simulator. It works fine. I just plugged the joystick into a USB port and started the application. It was installed and the application recognized it immediately.

    Hi. Good product for playing some old school PC games. Probably better products out there that cost more but I was just looking to get something so that I could enjoy Xwing and Tie Fighter.

    As stated above the ThrustMaster USB controller was a gem to used, however the unit proved to be defective. I have in fact reordered the unit, hoping that lightning does not strike twice in the same spot.
