I purchased the Saitek Evo and have been very impressed with it's smoothness. Of course, I had to Logitech Force 3D's before this and forgot how important stability was vs. crappy force feedback effects. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Cyborg EVO, ultimate in $ to button ratio.

Well, first you have to learn how to spell the word budget (a true democracy, the public school system, EVERYONE gets a diploma http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif).

Then go buy a Saitek Cyborg Evo. Can't beat it for the price.

Yep Jinxjx, you can't beat the ETO. Mine was thirty bucks at Best Buy. Ironically, and I've told this story before, I have like a thousand dollars worth of sticks and throttles around here. An original Thrustmaster FLCS LE at five a pop, a TQS throttle to match, a CH Fighterstick, a matching CH throttle, on and on..... What do I play with? A thirty dollar EVO. LOL. I recently picked up a Saitek X45 just for the throttle and it works great with the EVO stick. Some don't like the EVO for the twist rudder, me I love it. Good luck, you can't go wrong with the EVO, heck, if you don't like it for some reason just take it back <ggg.> All the best, LongHorn

Another vote for the EVO, I've been using mine for months with no problems in a variety of games.

As far as conflict with other controllers, I found for some reason mine does not like to be plugged in with my MOMO wheel. The Wheel isn't affected at all.
Still, no problem to pull the plug on the wheel when flying.

I dont think so..... this (http://store.yahoo.com/saitekusa/recprod.html) is the ultimate $ to butto ratio.

As far as multiple USB controllers go in IL2 series games, yes it works but it may require a small workaround for full functionality. For more details see the "Joysticks..." link under my signature picture.
