I need help deciding which joystick to get.My options are the Saitek Cyborg F.L.Y. 5 and the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro.1) Will either of these sticks be able to last a year without losing calibration? Which one will last longer before losing calibration?2) Which of these have better controls? (not going left or right when the stick is centered, good precision etc.). I've heard that the Logitech turns the plane right when the stick is centered. Is this true? Does the Saitek have any such problems?If you can answer the above questions and recommend which one to get, that'll be great! smile.png

For this price range ,you could do well to consider the 'Thrustmaster HOTAS X (Don't worry about the X ,works fine in FS9 as well) This is by far the best Joystick (£30 only) I have used.You get a lot of stick including a separate throttle ctrl that gives a great feel at takeoff.Cant say about longevity of stick had it about eight months and all is well.Its solid and reassuringly heavy and well built.My two bob's worthcheers Andy

I have a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro for my kids to use (no way they are touching my CH stuff!) and when I try and use it I inadvertently end up twisting the stick, and it gets VERY annoying.I can't comment on the Saitek as I'm never seen nor used one.
