Alot of people like the Saitek X52 Throttle Joystick, but there are hundreds out there, I personally use a very basic Logitech Extreme 3D pro, which has a load of buttons, Yaw movement, so I can taxi the plane and a throttle, works handsomely.

If you want to be really adventurous, look at CH Products and there yokes. Hope that helped in some way

I use the Saitek Cyborg Evo. For a number of reasons.


The head of the joystick (top where your thumb and index finger go.) has 6 buttons (5 plus trigger) and the base has 6 (or 8 plus 2 shifts)


Has a twist for rudder, and a throttle thing... and most interesting of all. you can change the sticks configuration to be held in the Left hand or the Right hand. I personally use it Left handed for all my Fixed wing flying and I love it, Not having to cross hands for the Mouse and Keyboard. It's like sitting in the Captain seat of an Airbus in that respect, or the Captain seat in anything really as usually you'd use your right hand on the throttles and MCP and radios and flaps and speedbreak and overhead and pedistal etc etc anyway even if you were on an aircraft with a yoke.


I highly reccomend a left handed or (what you can buy usually being an) ambidexterous (left or right handed reconfigurable) stick for this reason.

Im currently using this thrustmaster: http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Thrustmaster-T-Flight-HOTAS-X-Joystick-For-PC-and-PS3

not in stock at the moment, but was only £25. Was reviewed in CustomPC hence I picked it up. The throttle parts does detatch and can have it on either side as desired. There is a total of 8 buttoms, with a viewfinder stick (a little thing on the joystick used for looking around). Also the joystick twists for rudder movement, and there is moving bit on the throttle for rudder that can be re-programmed. Its alreadfy pre configured for FSX, but not FS9, though its easily done. It can also be used with a PS3 for games like Hawx.

When I had Logitech Extreme 3D pro it was a nice joystick.


I don't like joysticks that have 'the spring of death', ie really stiff chrome springs too abruptly to the center.
