Hi! I am an avid flight simmer, having nearly 3 years to my credit now, and experience in many types of aircraft (ranging in size from Gliders to LTU MD-11s, and Qantas, Virgin Atlantic, UAL, NWA, and BA 747-400s). I recently received PSS Boeing 777-200Pro (about a month ago actually), and I have been having to fly using my keyboard, which makes the 777 very slow to respond. My old joystick will no longer work, and I was wondering what types of yokes or joysticks are reliable, but cheap (in the $30-$45 range). I am anxious to get my planes flying! My real problem is with my keyboard I have trouble getting the power just right for landing and experience an alarming sink rate just outside the inner-marker, and crash. I used to be great at landings (even with the keyboard), but the keyboard isn't fast enough for me now. Thanks for any help you can give me!

Do you know if someone has made something like the Suncom software for Win2K?
It does not work (which Suncom acknowledges) and will not be fixed. I asked them if they could release the source so I could port it, but they told me they are unable to as it is owned in part by a 3rd party.
It works, but not being able to store my settings can get annoying sometimes (not that I often fly more than 4 sims in a period).
