Default Re: Official Flight Simulator X Thread

Thanks Bearclaw.

As to the joystick I have a Microsoft Sidewinder which is cheap and seems fine to me. It has profiles and stuff built in to Flight Simulator so you won't have to program it, which is nice, plus its got rundder twist grip, throttle, hat, etc...

I always see people recommend the Saitek X52, but unless you are a hard core flight simmer I cannot see spending $200 on a joystick.

EDIT: I guess the sidewinder is not longer made.
