Paid £19.99 @ Amazon during BF week.



Darn I would have purchased one if I knew it was that low during bf!

Still better than what argos charge though so have heat!
Paid £24 a couple of years ago. It’s good value for that or the previous £19, but really not for £42 !!
I play on PC (it also works on PS3) but the deadzone in the centre is too big for me making slight adjustments difficult.

Fun to try out to see if you would be a flight sim fan. I do struggle to get the controls right with this stick with the likes of Warthunder and Il Stormovic.

I bought it for Star Citizen, but I’ve not actually tried it with the alpha version yet.
Star Citizen....... it’s getting there.... maybe .......another couple of years and then no doubt a hardware upgrade. Looks awesome if they actually ever get there.
Have you tried finding a joystick recently? Prices are crazy high. No competition at all on the various types. Ordered from scan as they claim to have stock whilst Novatech claim to be ordering it in (it's EOL so where is their stock coming from?).
Not worth £42
Feels cheap and nasty. Avoid. I took mine back.
Paid about £20 a few years ago for a new one off eBay ended up getting two sent lol ! my son loves it on Eve: Valkyrie VR
I've got one of these, just don't expect it to make you any better at Elite Dangerous, and expect to waste a lot of time mapping the controls.
I want me some Thrustmaster action.. hot
From what I hear the deadzones (IE, the area in the middle of the stick that counts as nothing having been moved) on these aren't great. Basically, you have to shift the stick 17% of the way before it'll even consider your action an input, which would make movement somewhat more clunky, and make it more difficult to do subtle shifts whilst maneuvering.

For comparison's sake, the HOTAS 4 (which is basically the same stick updated slightly and compatible with the PS4) has a deadzone that's about 6%.

I'll be sending mine back if that's truly the case. I've got a Saitek Evo and that feels like it has no deadzone (you have to setup one to cover the noise from it sitting off centre) so I'm hoping it's just a driver configuration issue if people have to move the stick that much to get it to register.
