Hi all

wanted to send a call out to all the flight sim players/users out there on some possible joystick choices. My old saitek Cyborg-Grpahite circa 1800s is still hanging in there. However with its complete lack of a rudder system (no twist) its always been a headache for flying with. It is responsive in all other ways, but i know after my years with games like WWIIOL, ect that Spring mechanism that's holding the thing together is bound to give.

So I want to know if any of you sim-buffs have any suggestions on stick. Now keep in mind im fairly casual with all of it, I dont need foot peddle rudders, or a totally separate device for throttle. Also the space of time between the creation of good flight-sim games seems to be once every decade give or take... Im not going to invest too heavily into it, so anything with a $40 and up is a no no for me.


I have seen many joysticks, but not sure how many have a build in rudder system included. I have tried to google to the best of my ability. but the damned console market decided that the term "joystick" be applied to any and all manor of controls... I would be grateful for any help and advice with this.
