Currently using the Logitech GamePad2 with Force Feedback. Not bad, but i think I should go with a joystick. My buddy who works for Best Buy suggests the Saitek X52 Flight Control System. Anyone using this joystick, particularly for this application? How is it? Any other suggestions as far as joysticks/yokes go? Thanks.

the saitek is really good for flight sims. its a dual controller. joystick plus one for throttle control. I haven't played flight sims in a long time, but I wore out my original version of that controller. THe entire line of saitek controllers are very well built, excellent controllers.

I find joysticks more effective, we use FS to help yeach cadets how to fly before they get a go in a real aircraft and we are sticking to a joystick because modern aircraft dont use yokes anymore. Pedals are good though to have but not strictly neccesary.
