Whatcha think of it?

I bought one, but not for work, because playing games on company time is wrong, as we all know.

I'll test it after the boss leaves. I'm just wondering what others have to say about it.

You pay for what you get. It works, and if you don't mind a twist rudder, light base, and easy spring tension (my opinion) you'll fly with the best of them.

Go to windows update site Gozr, there is a new driver for it that auto calibrates it.

I really like the feel of this thing. I just wish they made the switch-head-thingy a bit smaller so littler folk like me could reach all the switches.

Sucks. Worse Saitek EVER. I suffered thru the driver nonsense last year, filled the bottom with #6 lead shot and epoxy hoping to get it weigh at least 1/2 a pound, and had to recalibrate it each. and every. time. windows fired up.
I'm a die hard Saitek sticker too. This one sucked, even if they fixed the drivers (I'm guessing from what I've read) the circuitry inside is cheese. Soft white cheese. Two year warranty? LOL, yes. Good luck getting them to replace it. The point of origin will tell you to call Saitek, Saitek will tell you to take it back to where you purchased it.
I use the Rumble Stick now, with forcefeed turned off, its not a bad stick.
But the EVO puts the evolution back into De-Evolution...Moooooooooo
You can have mine for shipping Whats the address? PM me

And my SV650 makes more horsepower while weighing half as much, and is an absolute hoot to ride http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I love my EVO. It needs the latest Windows update driver and the latest Saitek driver otherwise it drifts to the left but once all the drivers are in place and its calibrated Its a nice joystick, if a little sensitive.

It needs to be recalibrated each time windows loads up but that just involves moving the stick around once or twice while IL2 is loading up, thats not really a chore or a problem.
