On a side note, I found too really cool programs that go along with FS.

The first one is called AFCAD. it is an editing program and you can edit everything with airports. You can change runways length, length, markings, lighting, where planes will park, etc. I spend way too much time on it now. Search google for AFCAD and you will find it.

The other is FSPassengers. It is a program which is free for trial, but the trial is completely unlocked and you can experience absolutley everything the actual program has to offer. The only drawback is you can only take off from KSFO(San Fran) You can fly anywhere and like I said above you get every feature the full program has except whre you can take off from. It is cool, you make your company, and buy planes and work your way up or there are a few other scenarios. Try it out guys. Again, search google for FSpassengers.

This has probably been put up all over the place, but I am too lazy to look... anyone have recommendations for a joystick <$40?

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.

I also have a microsoft sidewinder. I have had it for about 8 years now, since I started playing FS. I bought a X52 and it was awesome to have for the week I had it but it broke on me so I sent it back. It's really ncie and it's online at some places for about 100 so it's not that bad. It's REALLY nice though. I am a really hardcore FS guy so I am going to order it soon again.
