My System Specs
X52 Pro Flight System
Or for a few dollars more - Saitek X52 - (not the pro version) for $107 on Amazon.ca I'm leaning towards the ones with a throttle. This one has a separate throttle meaning it can be positioned where my hands fit best - the Thurstmaster does have a detachable throttle but as far as I can tell that means you can use it connected to the joystick, or the joystick alone - can't seem to find out if the throttle works when detached from joystick.
$32 for the Logitech Joystick 3D - lots of support and Logitech is very well known.
$47 for the Thrustmaster T Flight with throttle - reading good reviews on the flight sim sites
$107 for the Saitek X52 - includes a small display on throttle which is distinct from the joystick.
