    Hi all again.

    There is a question i would like to know its answer.

    Which you consider a good joystick. I had a microsoft sidewinder, but when i changed home, it got broken. Now i need a new one, but not very expensive, and tough to resist my unmeasurable strength :D .

    Any suggestion? Thx

    I have MS Sidewinter 3D Pro, and very happy with it.


    BTW, warning to all, first one to make a joke about Elena and joysticks will have to face me :mad:

    Hi Ele

    if u want a good stick, i'd suggest u buy a Thrustmaster Fox2 Pro (or something like that) - quite cheap, resistance can be adjusted (never had it, but i know ppl who do and are very happy)...
    or a Logitech Wingman Extreme Digital 3D (but 80% of them needs tunning right when u get it out of a box - too large deadzone mostly, and potentiometers need to be cleaned from time to time) but when u "prepare" this joy, it can be a very good stick...it has two big advantages also...resistance is just like it should be imo and it can easily be modified...

    MS sticks are very good,very durable (optics instead of potentiometers) but aren't too ergonomical and are too "light" in the moves...

    How can people always find double sense for any word? :dunno: :D

    Well, i had that MS, but only transporting it, it broke.What is CH? HJM, what are potentiometers? And that of an afterbunner... i don't know what it is, also. However, 100? seems too much for me.

    I'll look for that logitech, see how much it costs. However, if someone can explain me my doubts, i'll be thankful.
    Sorry for my lack of knowledge in this, and thx again
