Good, but not perfect...

  • By Semper Fidelis on Sunday, October 25, 2020
  • Pros: Offers great customization options for flight sims
  • Cons: Feels cheap in the hand, like an overpriced piece of plastic that's going to wear out in no time flat.
  • Review: This is a good controller overall, and it will definitely revolutionize your game when it comes to flight simulators (specifically that one that everyone is playing which caused joysticks to go out of stock everywhere), or games like Elite Dangerous, which is what I specifically got it for.

    My beef with this controller is that for the price it should be more substantial and better built, from higher quality materials. The plastic feel leaves something to be desired. It's too light, and moves around too easily on the desk. After less than one month of very light use the throttle action is frustratingly sticky, and no longer smooth at all. I've even tried lubricating the rails but it doesn't help much.

    Overpriced. I wouldn't buy another one, but at least "My Pilot Store" has the best price on it. Some dealers on Amazon are charging more than twice as much. Absurd.

Not all that S.M.A.R.T.

  • By KCShelby from Granite Springs NY USA on Thursday, September 24, 2020
  • Pros: Lots of buttons
  • Cons: Sliding throttle gets stuck
  • Review: The so-called "Sliding Motion Advanced Rail Tracks" lost their mojo after only a few weeks, and now the throttle motion is pretty sticky. That said, the various buttons, switches, and knobs fill out a HOTAS setup for VR flying.
