Thinking about getting a Thrustmaster Top Gun Afterburner FF to replace my MS Sidewinder FF, which is getting a bit long in the tooth.
Has anybody got one and if so, is it OK ??

I got one when they were released. I really like it but this is my first FFback stick so I cant compare to any other FF stick. The stick still feels like new & its had some hard use in the last six or seven months. The only problem I have had is with the twist rudder switch sometimes flickers causing eratic left & right yaw.but it sorts itself out if you turn off the stick and start it again. I might be just my stick. If you have TrackIR you can program your buttons til your hearts content. I think I have over 20 button options configured.
A good stick but if your left handed its not going to be comfortable.

I have the non-ff afterburner and I like it a lot. Fits like a glove and works well. Only problem I have had with it is the twisting handle rudder, it started causing problems after about 1 year of use. I switched to the other rudder that is on the throttle and no problems after that.

I could use some more buttons tho.

I also have the Afterburner II non FFB.
Works great for me, and I like the rudder on the rocker. I realy don't think you'd be disapointed with it.
