Good and cheap joystick?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
What's a good joystick, preferably under $40 shipped, absolute max 54 shipped? Will mostly be used for Flight Simulator X and some BF2. Throttle controls also preferred.

Maybe something like this, but I don't know if this one is good since the reviews vary so much.

Ohh that little thing, thanks. Do you know though if it can be left by itself or does it spring back to idle? Do you have this joystick?

no spring back action you have to move it manually i have one sitting in my closet right now....my only complain with it was it made a popping sound when pulling up yet works fine.

I finally got to upgrade to a saitek x45 HOTAS which will run ya about 75$

yes i have that joystick. it stays wherever you stick it at, no spring. its a great joystick, i just wish i had a flight sim to use it with instead of using bf2's planes lol

I have an X45, don't like it. The earlier revision, the X36 was quite a bit better, despite the superficial similarity. The spring+swash plate on the X45 makes it a good deal less accurate than the X36 (which was easily single pixel accuracy).

I suppose is not a bad joystick, but I was spoiled on the X36.
