I do not think MS makes their joystick anymore. I use the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro and am quite satisfied with it. If you shop around, you can find it for less than $30.

I use the Saitek X45. I bought it for $64, but I've seen it on eBay for $20-$30.

The Saitek is a very good joystick, especially if you do a lot of "bare knuckes" flying. The feel of the throttle is excellent.

which one is the best joy stick?

I would use for comercial flights rather than military fighting stuff, so shooting buttons are not essential.

Just trottle, vibration, and all the stuff needed 😀

I am using an old MS Sidewinder. It has the basic buttons, a hat, a slider. Been using it for 5-6 years, works great.

I use the MS SideWinder Precision Pro2 USB which is no longer available.
If I had to buy one today I would go for the Saitek brand, probably a X45 or X52.
Go to a store to see how it handles before you buy one, Amazon usually has good prices.

I use the Logitech Freedom 2.4 Cordless Joystick. I find that it performs all standard tasks, and handle's very nicely. I got it as a gift, so I don't know how much it cost when it was bought, but I'm sure you'll find it for a good price online.

I use a Microsoft Precision Pro(Not feedback) and it works fine. If you were planning on spending that much money I would go with the CH yoke and pedals. They are expensive, but I think for most flying they are the most realistic and the smoothest.

So which would be more realistic, a yoke without pedals or a joystick which provides for separate rudder control?

BTW, if you go to froogle.com and search for "ch yoke usb", you will find them for as low as $93.

i would say they come in a pair. if you use the ch yoke, you dong have any other rudder input without the ch rudder pedals. so make a budget for two 🙂

What is force feedback?

Pro Member Captain
nottobe Captain

forcefeed back is the motion simulation for the joystick, especially on the ground, you feel the vibration as a result of different speeds and surface bumpiness. in the air, it gives some resistence to your handling.
i wish my ch yoke had this capability

Without the rudder pedals I would go for the stick with rudder control. The CH yoke with the pedals is a great setup, and that's no yoke.🙂

Logitech for one makes more than one force feedback stick.
