I'm using Logitech WingMan Force 3D and I'm totally satisfied with it, where I bought it, it cost about SEK 500, about 50$.

There is no better than the Microsoft Precision Pro because you can control the rudder with the stick. The new Presicion Pro 2 should be about 40USD.
I'd never go for anything but MS.

Yes,

I have to agree with VgnAtl747. The Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedack Pro ll. Though it will set you back a little bit ($$$). Thought it is worth it. EMail me if you have any questions about it.

Thanks,

I have a Gravis Afterschock and it's really cheap and it rumbles too with what's happening on the screen and what's in the game. It's really cool too. You have to install something and it works with all games. I paid 19.99 plus tax at Best Buy.

Suncom FSF Throttle and F-15 Talon stick. Very good combo.
Sturdy, comfortable and precise.

Addition to my other post - the Force Feedback Pro I is coming down in price due to the presence of the FF Pro II. I used to thave the I, and it is also pretty good.

This will not be a popular opinion, but hey, here goes.

I use the CH Products Mach I. It's a bare bones, two axis, two button joystick. The base isn't much bigger than my fist. It's white plastic, and it cost about $10 in circa 1992 dollars. It still works fine, and I've been using it to fly FS2K around. The stick itself is only 3 inches high, and is about 1/2 inch in diameter. I prefer it to the monstrosities so common today.

When you guys start flying real airplanes, you'll notice one thing: Until you are a CFI, you do all your flying in the left seat. That means you have to use your right hand for the throttle, mixture, radios, etc., and your left hand for the actual flying of the airplane. I've noticed the Microsoft joysticks are molded to fit a right hand, which is not your flying hand in real life. I fly a simulator with my left hand, even though I am right handed. You guys might want to think about it too if you are planning to move to real airplanes. Anyway, just a thought.

I would have to reccommend any of the Microsoft range...they have a model to fit most budgets and seeing as Fs2k is made by microsoft then the joysticks would probably suit the game best.....just a thought...
Although on the other hand you should read Westerns727's post above.

The GENX500 made by Quickshot is a good one to try.
Throttle, and very smooth movement.
Priced from around £35!

I got the MS Sidewinder ForceFeedback Pro. I have had it for years. It'll last. It's a good quality product....so far  Big grin.

Get a yoke if you can, it's better. CH makes good yokes.

Get the Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback II. I've had it for sometime now and it flies like a dream. But its pretty expensive though.
