Usual rapid delivery from Amazon (free too) and the joystick was unpacked and stuck into an XP machine and recognised straight away. Seems large and sturdy and had a nice feel (though I have nothing to compare it with). Works great as a joystick (although no rudder control until I can map some of the buttons correctly) and a nice throttle.
If you want force-feedback, vibration and hundreds of buttons then this may not be for you but then you will need much deeper pockets. For the price it deserves 5*
I also have the "Ultimate Edition" of IL-2,made for Windows 7, The response to the Thrustmaster is excellent and it is smooth and easy to use.
There are not a lot of buttons compared with the Microsoft Sidewinder but what it has is easily enough and they work well.
I had a Sidewinder but it no longer works due to withdrawl of support by Microsoft.
I also had a Saitek HOTAS combination years ago ;and the Thrustmaster is far more smooth and light. The Saitek joystick was far stiffer (compared with the Sidewinder I was also using at the time). The Thrustmaster more "fluid" so is better than either of them.
I have years of experience flying various aircraft types in the air and this stick feels natural and as smooth as the best I have flown (The T67M Firefly ).
I am finding it quite sensitive in pitch , but am having to adjust my flying-style and be more gentle !! Lack of a twist facility for rudder is a bit of a loss compared with the Sidewinder.
Since beginning this review:
I have tried to get the Thrustmaster to work alongside the SAITEK Pro Yoke and Rudder-Pedals but although the Thrustmaster works fine alone,when the SAITEK items are plugged in they dominate and it stops functioning on Lock On and IL-2.
I have unplugged them ; and will just have to reconnect them when I want to use them for FS2004 (FS9).
So now I am happily flying IL-2 Ultimate Edition and Lock On Flaming Cliffs. both excellent programs with beautiful graphics and flying pleasure.The Thrustmaster enhances that experience;it is a great stick and well worth the money.Read more ›
The stick arrived promptly, looked as described. When I plugged into my PC's USB port, it was recogmised correctly and I could immediately use it. It feels good quality and I loved the fact that it was true plug and play i.e. I didn't have to do anything, not even a restart on my PC.
It wasn't very expensive so I wasn't expecting a premium joystick and it does lack a "positive" feel when moving. Its a little bit wobbly, but it does exactly what I wanted it to do and at a reasonable price so I am happy with it.
