All you need to do is just slightly look down the page for some recommendations... Please make the effort.

The Saitek AV8R is a very good stick for around 30.

If you just got Forgotten Battles then you hyave wasted your money... get IL2 1946. Hit the Nugget's Guide in my sig.

Good.... ok for a joystick it all depends on what you want to spend.. If you are a die hard simmer.. or at least already know you like the sim then consider CH products.. they are good. However if money is an issue then you might consider some of the Saitek offerings.. Very good bang for the buck.

There was a new nice looking cheap joystick released recently, I forget the model and make.

Anyone knwo the one I mean, and is it any good? It resembled a MS FF2 but had red buttons and trigger?

I first saw a pic of it on this forum a couple of months ago, it LOOKED like the nicest of the cheaper sticks availbale...


If you have a gameport or are willing to buy a 3 soundblaster Live! off ebay to use as a gameport (you can use a different soundcard as well) then I recommend a Microsoft Force feedback Pro off Ebay. I picked up a mint boxed one for 6.99. Dont use a USB to Gameport adaptor tho, the force feedback doesnt work with them. A 2nd hand SB live! off ebay is cheaper anyway and far better.

This is the MS FF Pro..
