flight sim best controller to use

Simply, what is the best type of controller to use when playing CFS 3? And may i also ask; why does the screen go 'blank' during play, seems that it happens every... 5 mins or so? Can this..be fixed ?!? I found this 'forum' and would appreciate any feedback.

A good joystick and open the case, clean the fans and heatsink, they gather quite a bit of dust.
You should also clean out your old video drivers and load new ones.

Just a general bit of advice for all graphic demanding games:
First, get the latest driver for you graphics card.

If this does not help then you can try to increase your AGP bus voltage in the BIOS. I have had all sorts of video driver crashes with CFS1 and hardware acceleration enabled. I have slightly increased the AGP bus voltage and everything is running OK now. My graphic card is a fairly old RADEON 9200 based one with only 128M memory on it.
