Does MSFS2004 use Force Feedback? Is it good? What joysticks are the best?

Recommended Posts

Just wondering how Force Feedback is in this game? Is it realistic? can you feel stalls, etc.? What joysticks are the BEST for force feedback and just for overall game play in this game as well as Combat Flight Simulator 3?Any and all info would be HIGHLY appreciated, thanks!

Don't forget to budget for FS Force addon as well. Without it, force feedback in the sim is a waste of time.Allcott

I spent a lot of money on a logitech FF joystick and I have to say it was a waste. Logitech products are usually high quality and in other games it works fine, but in FS2004 it's no good. The reason is that FS2004 for some reason puts counterforces onto your input, eg say you push the 'yoke' to front, it sends a counter jolt back, really messing up your input. I find that planes are really hard to fly with FF enabled, as you are continually trying to counter FF movements.FS Force is a product to fix this problem, but I have to say after trialing it, while it does improve things, having FF disabled is still the best option in my opinion.Cheers, Christian

Well since I have the CH USB Yoke I did some experiment what I flew best with my force feedback joystick or the CH USB Yoke. Tried some dangerous dave approaches in the default Learjet 45 and tried to see which I could use the least runway with. There was no match really flew much better with the Saitek Cyborg Force stick continuosly made much better landings and often even stopping on the tarmac it
