I would like to begin by saying that I am not sure if joysticks in general are recommended for use in patients with RSI or carpal tunnel syndrome. I am sure however that they are designed for use in space flight and air flight simulator games, and in this respect this joystick excels.

Briefly, this Saitek Cyborg V1 has 7 buttons, an 8-way point of view hat, a throttle lever and a 'twist' rudder (twist the stick to turn the rudder) in addition to the usual x- and y-axes. On paper therefore this is an excellent joystick, incorporating every feature I could think of.

How is the performance in games? I have tested this in Wing Commander Prophecy, Wing Commander Secret Ops and Freespace 2. In all three games I have experienced no problems. (Only one minor complaint in WC Secret Ops: for some reason, if I invert the rudder in the game to change the behaviour to what I expect, it does not remember the setting.) I especially appreciated the twist rudder, which allows me to roll while banking/pitching -- useful for 'evasive' manoeuvres.

The feel of the joystick is good; it is easy to move, and auto-centres.

In the past I have used very cheap joysticks: e.g. 2-axis 2-button joysticks. These suffered from some major problems: even at rest, the joystick signal 'trembles', so it was difficult to fly in straight lines when using them. They would have good gradation of movement in one direction (e.g. left) but if moved in the opposite direction (e.g. right) the movement would be maximum, so making them difficult to aim with. Finally, the auto-centre mechanism would break. These problems would manifest themselves after 6-months to a year's worth of (admittedly heavy) playing.

So far I have encountered none of the above problems.

Saitek Cyborg V1 Stick (PC)

I have recently purchased this joy stick and must truly say that this is an excelent choice when you consider the the price offer! Value for money, easy to use strong built and durable, I bought it to use it with Flight simulator and the results and performance is great! Not only did I find it excelent for my intended use, but it is highly suitable to to use for any other game. This was an added feature in it that I did not expect, every button (9 in total) on the joy stick can be easily set in any order for your complete control, with any keyboard keys and be saved in a profile for each game you want. I persoanlly found this Amazing!

I must also add that I bought it from Amazon where I had been given the best price offer and least to say that their services to me had been best second to none!

i do enjoy flight sim a lot and have a lot of gear for it, and what a decent product this is by saitek. this joystick is perfect for anybody whether they be an experienced flight simmer or whether your new to flight sim, beacause they combine all the key flight controls into one joystick!, the main flight controls, the rudder, and the throttle, so your all set up for flying on flight sim. there are multiple buttons you can programme along with a small toggle for you to view the aircraft at all angles.
the feel of the joystick is very comfortable, you can hold it in either your left or right hand so usable for everyone, and doesnt ache your arm like ive found in the past with previous joysticks and yokes.
so overall i'd definatley recommend this joystick to anyone who enjoys flight sim.

works perfectly- was a little stiff but wore in quickly, works well with all my games. WORKS ON BATTLEFIELD 3 (to use correctly uninstall/ unplug all other game controllers before playing as battlefield 3 has a bug when im writing this of only using one game controller at once also use bf3settings which is freeware to keybind it to get round another battlefield 3 bug of not binding the throttle correctly). very impressed with the software for this as any button or movement can be made to do anything (keyboard, mouse or macro containing the 2), compared to the cyborg fly5 which is £50 in pc world great value- its basically the same but for a few less buttons and the throttle being at the back rather than the side. highly recommend the product and the product for use with battlefield 3 as greatly improves controllability for aircraft over mouse/keyboard control.

The physical product itself appears okay but the advertised SST software that allows various keys of the keyboard and mouse-clicks to be allocated to the switches so that the joystick can be used to play games other than flying sims is not available for Windows 10. If you are using this joystick to work with one of the flying sims listed it would be fine - otherwise avoid. As I wanted this joystick to play another game and I have Windows 10 it is at present entirely useless.

Edit: Tech support have confirmed that there are no Windows 10 drivers for this joystick to allow the SST software to work. They are hoping it will be avaiiable in a few months. It sounded to me like they are very far from having the software ready so some time in 2016 is all that can be expected.
