    Re: Pilots! What joystick do you recommend?

    I use a Logitech Freedom 2.4 wireless joystick that is only just now starting to crumble. I'll be investing in a Saitek X52 in a month or two, but only because I also play other flight sims.

      Wow, I'm actually surprised by the amount of people who just use the keyboard and mouse. I was really bad at flying the heli's with a mouse in the demo training mission, so that is why I'm looking at a joystick. Sadly, I really don't play any other flight sims so the joystick will be mainly for Arma, but I guess that gives me an excuse to play more air combat sims.

        I have the "flight stick x". It has a decent price, I've spotted no flaws in it, and very importantly (o me), it has a slider for throttle. I can't stand the rolling wheel type throttle I had before. It doesn't allow you to find a specific throttle setting without looking at it, or rolling all the way to the top and back to locate even roughly the area I want to find.

        If this stick appeals to you, I definitely recommend it.

          Skin, after our completely epic dogfight, I am convinced that a joystick is definitely a worthwhile investment, I honestly didn't believe that ArmA could have that nice of a air encounter, even with myself on a keyboard.

            The Saitek CyBorg Evo is a fantastic joystick for flying in Arma, shame that there is the problem with Arma not detecting joystick throttle inputs

                  Logitech Extreme 3D Pro for the win!!!

                  It's been the stick that has kept many of you safe and well on more insertions than I care to remember! ;)

                    ^ Shame it doesnt help you dodge bullets :P

                    Don't use a joystick, the keys provide everything I would want when flying. I would save for a TrackIR instead.

                      A minor caveat: if you want to be a fighter pilot, get a joystick. Want to just fly choppers around? Joystick not really necessary.

                            I just dont go down :p

                            And I still use W-A-S-D and X-C for jets. Joystick doesnt seem neccesary in Arma 2. Not many people utilize jets in missions either. I would wait until flare system's till you buy a joystick, thats when jets will be the cool thing.

                              Well, I bought a stick. Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. Thanks for all the advice everyone. I decided to go ahead and get one because I just can't use the mouse and keys for controlling a chopper very well, maybe I'll do better with a stick. Also it was pretty cheap at Best Buy and has a 2 year warranty.

                              Again, thanks everyone for your input!
