Looking into getting a flight stick

#1NauticalDisastaPosted 8/19/2013 9:27:04 AM
I don't want anything too expensive as I will probably just be using it for BF3 and eventually BF4. Can anyone suggest a reasonably priced stick that feels good to use and will last me a while?

That seems like a really good price for a Logitech device. Have you any experience with that stick specifically?

I do not, but I do have the older Logitech Attack 3. I got it a long time ago for planes in Battlefield 1942. Still works today and it cost as much as that one. Can't go wrong with it. It will last.

I just bought this last week actually. I can't comment on it since it won't be here until Wednesday though. I spent several hours looking up reviews and such on all the common entry level flight sticks and that one had all kinds of good reviews though, which is why I picked it. It was either that, or the more expensive thrustmaster one, but I saw a lot of people talking about having 150+ setups and still going back to use the Logitech one on occasion which is why I went with it


Edit: This is the other thrustmaster I saw recommended a lot http://www.amazon.com/Thrustmaster-T-Flight-Hotas-Flight-Playstation-3/dp/B001CXYMFS/ref=pd_cp_e_0

Check out the Thrustmaster T-16000m.

A little more expensive than the Logitech stick and some of the side buttons feel a little meh but the stick itself feels really nice to fly with. The stick is swappable between left- and right-handed which is a godsend for leftys like me. I ended up preferring to use M&KB for BF3, but it's amazing for certain space sims.
