I am using an Sidewinder force feedback 2 Pro, the only fualt i can find with it is it's big and bulky and fairly heavy. But Force Feedback is the only way to go :cool: Mechwarrior & space sims rock with Forcefeedback :)

Did MS stop making the Sidewinder FF 2? I've looked around the net but can't seem to find anyone selling it. It looks pretty cool.

Ever used the Logitech Force 3D?

The Sidewinder team does not exist anymore. M$ does not even fully support sidewinder products under windowsXP

Ya, that is why I buy all the Sidewinder products I can get my hot little hands on. The stragetic command is $9 so I bought 4 of them. Should last me 10 years. :D

I'll be using it mostly for fighter sims like il2. :)

I'm thinking I'm going to get the Wingman Force 3D Joystick by logitech. The x45 looks really cool but its more than i wanted to spend and it doesn't have force feedback.

I like my Logitech wingman digital extreme. Had it for almost 4 years now and it's never failed me yet. Nice heavy base so it doesn't move around and very responsive. Logitech keeps the drivers up to date too so i am very happy, almost bought a MS sidewinder back then and glad i didn't since they dropped support for them.
