joystick

I contemplated this not to long ago. The best thing I came up with is to get a Thrustmaster Firestorm gamepad. It's no yoke, or joystick for that matter, but it is small and it works. They also have a force feedback and a wireless model as well.http://us.thrustmaster.com/products/bytype...ads&selector=14Or you can grab it at any compusa or bestbuy.-------------Michaelholding short...

Shay,I have a Logitech Wingman bought from the CompUSA store in Michigan Ave Chicago last July.It has both a gamepad and a mini-joystick plus a throttle slider/8 programmable buttons.The only problem with it is that the joystick only has X and Y axes but of course the rudder can be programmed to the buttons.In my opinion it is an excellent product and I have had no trouble with it.3nm NW NZGS :-wave

jerrycwo4I just bought a note book and I bought a 'regular' Microsoft "Sidewinder" (NO rudder control) joystick to use with it. It is a lot smaller than the Microsoft Precision 2 joystick I use with my desktop.jerry

jerrycwo4No, the above is NOT what I have but it looks like it would do if your really concerned with a small SIZE. It looks like a neat piece of gear. I just prefer the 'regular' type joystick, and the size that it is is really not a problem. I'll just carry mine in the box that it came in. I'll check out the aboue piece of gear the next time i go to BEST BUY.jerry
