I just picked up a thrustmaster top gun ffb from the internet mostly for the throttle but after using it i have a question? I have been using a ms precision pro 2 for a few years now and with stick settings of 100 across the board have been able to fly just fine. After plugging in the new stick it is a jittery as all get up , constant adjusting for somewhat level flight and it seems to be a little sluggish in its reach. Is it just a crappy stick or are all sticks that much different from each other? I guess i will have to go in and change my stick settings to get a better feel.anyone have a recomend on this stick or should i just fly my old stick and use the throttle from the new one. Thanks for any help and answers!

I'd go with the old stick, and the new throttle. Life is too short to put up with a dice stick, and fiddling with the settings constantly. I've just picked up a new sidewinder http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif, and have realised that every one I've had prior has been rubbish.
