I am going to be getting Flight Simulator 2004 tomorrow. I want to know if anyone knows a good yoke or joystick for the game. Is it better to use a joystick or yoke with the game?

yokes are usually expensive as well as pretty big, and you might have to buy an entire panel for them. i prefer a joystick, that way it doesn't look like the computer is only used for FS.

I'm partial to my new joystick, the Microsoft Sidewider. At first, I didn't like the idea of it because I couldn't fly it left-handed, as real airplanes are flown from the left seat. But then I got my real-world CFI, and had to learn to fly from the right seat using my right hand. Now, I really enjoy flying FS with a right handed joystick.

i use a right hand joystick and a left hand throttle. i forgot the name of the manufacturer. i got it second hand and never had the original box. it's nice to use, and i never have problems with which hand i use to control an airplane. i normally drive and fly with my left hand(i cnat do it with my right anymore) but when i go to flight sim, the right hand joystick is not a problem.

Hey...I have the best joystick for you to use!!! It's called the Force Feedback 2...newest and most advanced joystick, I think...I use it for Flight Sim 2002, and it works like a beauty. Yeah, I can't wait till FS 2004 comes out..I think I'll get one in August  Smile....

The man asks about yokes not joysticks...

In fact, a decent yoke costs no more than a decent joystick (of which there are very few indeed and none of them carry the name Microsoft).

Get a CH Yoke, costs under €200.
The ONLY good sticks are made by CH and Thrustmaster and cost about the same if not more (they do have cheaper ones but stay away from those).

And for the Sidewinder lovers: simflight announced last week that Microsoft has per immediate stopped production of their entire joystick and gamepad lines due to low demand.

You certainly don't have to buy an entire panel to get a yoke. The person who thinks that either hasn't looked well or is trying to give you the wrong impressions for some reason. It IS possible, but then you're looking at a yoke in the €700+ category.



I wish I were flying
