Rated 4 out of 5 by 1BA1 Very impressive product
Sadly, I have already had a single button start failing on mine but aside from that single issue (which is seemingly rare), this HOTAS is easily the best on the market and from the problems I've experienced with it's closest competitor I can let the 1 button issue slide.
Feels very heavy, it needs to be felt to be believed, very ergonomic and all the buttons are easily reached, the T.A.R.G.E.T software for this module is very in depth and after a small learning curve I am able to program the device specifically to how I want each and every input to behave.
The throttle is nicely adjustable, would love it to be a tad stiffer but hey-ho that's a minor nag but I am happy to have dropped a bomb on this to the end of dropping many virtual bombs with it.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Jim249 Very Bad It made for a A 10 Warthog not your desk top
Probably the best looking joystick in the world, but to play games with no.
After 3 days playing with the settings its still rubbish.
Its metal construction make it to heavy and slow to move with precision and you can't get round that.
All the sales blurb make it sound great but its just not designed for playing games/flight sims with its designed to with stand the high Gs
and stress off air combat.
Its well made in the extreme, but not the right tool for the job.
Nobody likes to admin they made a bad decision but baying this was a mistake.

Rated 5 out of 5 by giblets Great stick
If you like your sticks hard and metallic, this one is for you. It has an uncompromising build quality, feels firm and taut in one's hand. Travel from the centre is smooth in all directions and there are a lot of switches, buttons and hats to assign keys to.
Throttle needs a bit of greasing to feel smoother at the +90% mark, but it's still really nice to use.
Have been using it to play Elite: Dangerous and it makes dog fighting, landing and maneouvering a cinch.

Rated 5 out of 5 by RebelRedneck Best joystick on the market
Brought this joystick primarily for Elite Dangerous and have to recommend it wholeheartedly.
Made from metal weighs ton, feels nice in my big hands.
The throttle is nice and is easily pushed up and down.
Have it twinned up with Thrustmaster MFD's which are a steal.
The only downside is the cost which is a bit steep but considering you are getting an all metal construction compared to the plastic from Saitek in their X-55 rhino which is only about a £100 cheaper.

Not much I can say other than this is awesome. If you've got the money don't hesitate, just click buy and enjoy the button covered beauty. If you don't have the money.. borrow it from that chap in the alley you met last week, it's 100% worth risking your kneecaps.

Rated 2 out of 5 by owenros High quality item. poor value due to high cost
An exact copy I am told of a real world A10 Tankbusters aircraft
Not a bad joystick if you want to play aerial combat games, dog fights and bombing runs etc. and pretend you are flying an A10. Such an expensive item should have force feedback and it doesn't. No good for serious flight training or instrument flying with precision ILS and NDB approaches emulating real world aircraft procedures. Buy a yoke instead if this is what you want a flight sim for . . .
