As it says, i have updated my game with the intention of playing again online and offline, but my funds are a bit tight at the moment and thought maybe somebody had a stick lying around that they wanted to chuck anyway?

If not i will just wait a month or two...

Also on the same subject, has anyobody used the new Cyborg X? I think it looks great with twin throttles and all the buttons and a twisty rudder, it must be very similar to my old st290 pro, but i read on amazon it has a stiff centre? Just wondered if anybody knew anything about this. If it's true i will go with the Cyborg Evo instead.

That is unless somebody wants to donate me a stick http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I wouldnt dream of asking anything like this anywhere else but i know there are alot of good people on here willing to help like myself http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/metal.gif

Danjama mate, I have a Cyborg Evo Wireless which you can have for nothing if you like. I live in Geordie land (Newcastle lol). The wrist wrest thing is broken, but I suppose could be fixed somehow if you could be bothered. I never really liked the thing as it occassionaly "loses signal" which was annoying, but all buttons are working fine and throttle/rudder twist, all axis are ok too.

Wish I could offer something better, but better than nothing I suppose (and no, you're not having my X52-Pro! http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I wont be huffed if you decline, in fact I wouldn't blame you lol http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Hey mate i'll accept that if you're serious about it that's very kind of you http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I will PM you if that's ok?

I was going to get an Evo anyway so a wireless would be even better!!

Just curious how does it connect wirelessly? Bluetooth reciever?

Okey dokey, no problem http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Not sure what it is exactly, but its something similar to bluetooth I would guess, just a little stubby widjit USB thing you plug in the back.

Just invested in this one :
http://www.saitek.co.uk/uk/prod/cyx.htm.
Comfortable, adjustable handle, adjustable trigger, 12 buttons, though the wheel can add another two, one up, one down, throttle can be split in two of which i use one side for elevator trim, best stick ive ever owned, well worth the cash in my opinion.
Beats the Logitech Attack 3 (obviously) the one i bought 2 weeks previous, advised by others here to ditch it, glad i did as im loving the Cyborg X
Though it doesnt say it on the specs, it does have a twist handle for rudder which as a new flyer has helped me somewhat.

thanks for the information matey, i read somewhere it is stiff in the centre making it hard for micro-adjustments in the aileron axis, any truth in this?

Never had much exp. with joysticks if im honest (my last one being Logitech Attack 3) but i have no problem with this one, as far as i can tell all is fine.
The only thing it cant do is "LAND my damn plane" lol.

Not to worry, if at first you dont succeed, go back to WoW for a week then come back refreshed and ready to try again http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif
