Ignoring for the moment the $750-$975.00 price tag, one has to consider the reaction of female guests to one of these in your house or apartment...particularly if your computer/flight sim setup is in your bedroom.

Might be a particularly effective form of 'male birth control'.

My wife gave up on that a long time ago http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-surprised.gif

We have an agreement - I don't give her grief about her $1000+ pottery wheel and $5000 kiln and she does not give me any about my gliding club expenses or flight sim hardware http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

don't have experience of that model but in
general full length sticks are very good if you are into immersion- raybanjockey uber ace types would probably say you are handicapping yourself as it takes longer to physically move the stick http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/88.gif

the bend in the stick could work well with a normal computer chair

only thing that is a slight concern is the use of pots- hall sensors would be better at that price
you're gonna want the plus i presume as the buttons will be handy.

there are other options out there -a kg13 perhaps?

or from uk there's this

edit- you'll need to navigate to find it- look for cadet range
cadet deluxe might fit the bill?
if the wife REALLY doesn't care you could enquire about the spitfire controls there- i accept no responsibility for any relationship probs caused by showing you this http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/icon_twisted.gif

Trying to be subtle here. But she might mistake it for something else, that rhymes with Ian. That could end up good.

I dodged that bullet and am a lucky sob. My Wife has no expensive hobbies like that.

It's puzzling to see that. A good HE equipped axis is under $5, so it's not as if it should add much, if anything to the whole price. Same goes for the popular sticks.
