Default Game Controllers for flight and racing

Well I am just wondering what are your guys favourite controllers for games. I want one for some of the flying games and racing games I own.

I use a G25 for racing and a force 3d pro for flying on my PC.
On my laptop I just use a xbox controller.

If you want to play legit flight sims like FSX, Falcon 4.0: FF5.3, Lock on: Flaming Cliffs 2 or DCS:Blackshark you want something like the Saitek X52 (Pro) or the Logitech G940 or the CH Fighterstick. If you really wanna go pro go for the Thrustmaster Hotas Cougar and mod it.

I used a Saitek X52 pro with FSX for a year or more, Its a great controller but I always had a hard time making fast throttle adjustments while hovering when flying a heli.
I didn't use it alot and it took up to much room so my buddy got it now.

For me, i would get a Xbox 360 controller for "casual" racing games (the analogue L/R triggers are beasts, better than my Rumble Pad) or Logitech G27 (if your rich) or Driving Force Pro GT (on budget).

For flight games, i would get a decent joystick with the jet liner style thottle controls. From experience, these flight sims are dam hard to play with gamepad or keyboard.
