I have the Combatstick, and I love it,except that the POV hat is a little distant (which is why I use the throttle POV hat for POV). However, I am rapidly coming to the conclusion that you can never have enough buttons for CEM and/or extra views, and the Fighterstick has a few extra options...

cheers

I have been using the Fighterstick for awhile and am very pleased with it.
Alot of people say the spring is too light,but it feels fine to me.
Also like having the "shift" option,which gives each button two functions.

I've used sticks from many different manufacturers through the years but when it comes to build quality, durability and features IMO the CH gear can't be beaten. I still have a 7 year old CH Force FX and Pro Throttle in the back of my wardrobe that still works as it did when I bought it and now I use a USB CH Fighterstick, Pro Throttle, Pro Rudder Pedals and Flight Sim Yoke and plan to add the Throttle Quadrant to that list.

Not only is the hardware of a high quality but the software provided by Bob Church is also richly featured and easy to use.

If you're going to buy some new controllers then I strongly recommend RC Simulations (http://www.rcsimulations.com/). The guy that runs the business is a sim fan himself and knows what he's talking about and their customer service is the best I have ever received from a UK retailer.

I have a site set up for CH users here (http://www.ch-hangar.com) which might interest you.
