My System Specs

Default In need of A Joystick

I've been looking into getting back playing my Mechwarrior series, and I would like to get a new Joystick.
Its been a very long time since I've had to buy one, so I'm looking for some direction and advice.

I know it needs to have 3 Axis of Movement , Up/down, left/Right, twist left, twist right. And Throttle control, beyond that I am unsure of where to start.

Thanks in advance,

ST

My System Specs

I am mostly a flight sim and real aircraft sim player but there is some of the few I constantly use and I love. Sure some area bit pricey but they are dead nice.

CH Products - Retail Gaming Joysticks
X52 Pro Flight System
Aviator for Playstation 3 & PC
Flight System G940

My fav is the CH product. Well build and afordable for the feature. But to play MW you will probably prefer a cheaper on like the Saitek aviator.

I used to have the X45 from Saitek when Flight simming; worked like a charm and they are well built. But that until I stumbled upon the Saitek Pro Flight system...

Those are the ones I use:
Pro Flight Yoke system
Rudder Pedals
Pro Flight Throttle Quadrant
Pro Flight Switch Panel
Pro Flight Multi Panel

Next up is the radio panel... ; )
