You can get a Saitek Aviator pretty cheap. I got mine for $25 and its got two throttles, though I use one for RPM.

I have a logitech controller but it sucks using it. You really NEED a joystick. I always laugh at people who ask if you absolutley need one, but you do.

I've recently bought a Saitek Cyborg evo, which is highly adjustable and configurable, and is the most comfortable stick I've every tried - it's wonderful for long flights.

It does lack the dual throttle of the aviator though.

This is the new FSDreamteam Chicago O'Hare Intl. Its the most detailed scenery I have seen close in, but its got an LOD system so you lose the detail when moving away. I happen to think it looks really empty because of this, as the details only load when you are right into them. Works fine for ground taxi but looks empty from the air. I just got the free demo for now, so I've only spent 10 minutes with it...

It certainly looks very impressive on the gound - is it possible to configure the lod system?

Here's the Austrian Alps... I'm surprised they are so dark, but maybe thats how Austrian alps actually look.

My new favorite complex aircraft, the Digital Aviation Piper Cheyenne X.

Awesome, Awesome turboprop sounds. Turbine and prop pitch changes are the best I've yet seen in FSX. Great sound package overall.

The best VC panel lighting I've ever seen, it operates independant of other lighting. Super high res textures, realistic metallic spinners and manifolds. Working weather radar. 3d switches and bezels. Virtually every system modeled.

316 knots @ 32,000 feet. 630 shp per engine.

Imo the best FSX aircraft overall that I've seen. Even better than the C130X. Better sounds and much better lighting. This plane makes you want to fly at night.
