Joystick or Controls

Recommended Posts

I know this isn't specifically to do with PMDG.. but I thought that since the 747-400(or F) PMDG is the only aircraft I EVER fly on MSFS these days (although I am very keen to get hold of the MD-11).. I was interested in your specific recommendations.. and I thought this the best forum to go for to find out..I am looking at a decent set of controls for simming basically.. I have an old joystick, with no rudder function.. so flying can be difficult at times.. I was wondering if anyone had any specific recommendations as to what to go do.. I am prepared to spend a "reasonable" amount of money.. that is.. maybe 100 or so.. to get the right bit of kit.. I might even go higher if there are specific advantages.. I was also curious, does the PMDG 747 have a tiller control? I never recall seeing one in the controls section of MSFS.. in order to taxi and turn all the control surfaces on my aircraft move, and in reality obviously this would not happen.. so can I simply turn the wheels without the other control surfaces?Anyway.. I'm babbling.. I hope someone can offer me some good advice.. it's soon xmas.. and I plan to get it around then..CheersCraig
