What flight stick for BF3?

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to get a decently priced flight stick for BF3. I don't play anything else that I would need it for so it doesn't need to be the best, just decent.

I haven't done any research yet myself and thought I would just start here and get pointed in the right direction.

well i got logittech extrema 3d pro, great stick i gone thought like 5 of them, but in bc2 u cant set it up. now i got a 150 dollar stick + 150 dollar throttle and some old rudders peddles But like i said all useless in bc2, thy dont let you set up rudder (backward) also the flying in the game limited Not just height but also in the pitch and roll so joystick pointless. Mouse and keyboard only for that game, i got stick for rise of flight and il-2 . CH is the best in joysticks, only if you want to modify the Thrust master stick with new parts but that can cost up to $500 in mods + cost of stick. Heard the new a10 stick is good. Head over to simHQ for more info on sticks.


DOH bf3,,,,, well game not out dont know if limits are thare.

Had the x35 x45 and other died fast. heard the x52 is OK for price but better off paying more for the setup i got, last for YEARS instead of weeks. also x52 i believe it like f16 presser the stick dose not move, you can check it out @ bestbuys.

Thanks but I'm not looking to spend that kind of money. The Thrustmaster T16000m seems good and it comes to $57 shipped from newegg.ca. I'm going to check out some other like-priced sticks but the T16000m seems pretty good.

I have to agree, the BF series is not a flight sim. If the mouse control feels awkward, try reversing the axis for pitch, it might help.

I just use a cheap, old, Cyborg stick for flight in BF.
