What joystick do you use?

Post by IM NOT A DUCK » Sun Jun 23, 2013 3:12 am

I'm rather interested to see the variety of joysticks YSFlight players use. I also wonder how many YSFlight players play with a mouse. I want everybody to share what joystick they use and if you use a mouse to play and you are proud of it go ahead and share what mouse you use :P. All you have to do is name your joystick/mouse, tell the price, and add a pic if you want. I will start :!: :!: :!:

I run an Afterglow wired Xbox 360 controller.
Around $20 (IIRC, as it has been a while since I purchased the controller)

Non-sequota of the day, I just got reminded of a very NSFW picture of a lady and a rubber duck, captioned "Hey, got any grapes."

Never mind that.

I use this:

I use a Saitek X52 Flight Controller. Got it as a present from the wife. I also use a wireless mouse when I'm not at home playing on the home PC.

I also used to use a trackpad. Damn hard thing that was to fly with.

I use the the same as Nath and Gunny (LGT EX 3D PRO JS).
price: $24
My favorite features are the POV, rudder, and tons of buttons. :lol:

Unfortunately for me, YSF is the only flight sim that doesn't have a sensitivity problem.

Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas One. Still trying to make the rudder buttons on the throttle work instead of the one on the flight stick in YS. I still have my old Microsoft Sidewinder Joystick but the trigger button is not working.

I use a very cantankerous Saitek Pro flight yoke paired with CH products Pro pedals and custom made throttle quadrant by FSX throttle.

After 18 years of mouse and keyboard, looks like it will be another 18 years of mouse and keyboard... :lol:

My two cents:
Most over-used phrase of 2020: "New normal". Can we stop with that already? Pandemics do not last forever, and things will eventually go back to normal, just like they always were. You're welcome!
