    What is a good Joystick for $30-$50?

    I want a good solid joystick for flying games. I don't need (or want) force feedback. Maybe an older version of MS sidewinder?... thanks in advance.

    hello

    i havent looked for a flight stick for a while now. i did manage a while back to pick up at Best Buy a Saitek x36 setup. a joy, and throtle controler for what i recall being about 65 bones. it doesnt have force feedback (dont much care for the price i spent and what i got) and i THINK the package i picked up was the last of line. could be wrong of corse. the joy / throtle feel awesome. Falcon 4.0 loves the setup. i did have a touchy driver issue first time around, but seems golden at the moment. if u need to stay within your 40ish range, im not sure any of what i just spouted off will do ya any good, but for what its worth...

    good day human

    I have a Logitech Wingman Interceptor I just love- you should be able to pick it up for about $40. It's got 3 4-way hats, 10 buttons, and a throttle. Most importantly, it feels good and works well

    Hey I recently bought a MS SideWinder Precision Pro. I bout mine in a package that cam with MS FlightSim 2000. I payed 80$ for it and there is a rebate offer with it. I don't know if you want to spend 30$ extra but you can puy the joystick by itself. I REALLY like the feel and look of it. I love it!

    I'm with Baloney, I think the Cyborg 3D is the best stick available.

    Unfortunately, it's $60
    You can find it at http://www.fscentral.com/fsc/cyborg3d.html

    Thanks for all your help guys. Just so you know, I think I'm gonna go with a MS SideWinder Precision Pro V2.0 from buy.com. (After buy.com $10 off and $20 MS rebate, it's $23.95 w/$5 shipping). Works for me!
