Flight Stick tutorial for Falcon BMS?
Hi, I am Brazilian and i have a flight stick Thrustmaster Flight Stick X (single) without throttle lever. I searched the forums (BENCHMARK SIMS) and no find tutorial comparing Joystics. Logitech Extreme 3D pro, Mad Catz F.L.Y. 5, Saitek Aviator, Speedlink Black Widow and Thrustmaster are good flight sticks, they are accurate, tough for simulation. What are the best flight sticks for Falcon BMS? Thank You for all, and excuse me my English.
I recommend the Thrustmaster Cougar with FCC3 mod, or the Thrustmaster Warthog with FSSB R3 mod + Cougar TUSBA.
In a pinch Id recommend a F-16 SSC with some of the wires stripped out of the transducers and wired up to a PC.
I am not a “serious” simulator but here is my two cents:
The Logitech Extreme 3d Pro is good enough. Of course it is cheap compared to “serious” metal HOTAS, but if you don’t want to spend hundreds on a game then the Logitech Extreme 3d Pro is good enuff.
The Mad Katz F.L.Y. 5 is actually a pretty good - better - joystick but one thing makes it horrible and even worse than the Logitech Extreme: it’s center spring strength is too high. Despite all the other great parts Mad Katz has over the Logitech, that stiff center spring makes it not good for Falcon BMS. (It is good enough for MS Flight Simulator though.)
