I purchased this one because it was the cheapest one I could find with double throttle.
THIS DOES NOT HAVE DUAL THROTTLE!!!! you can not unlock them and it does not have the electronics on the inside to support it.
The Windows Driver for this does not come in the package. I could not get windows to recognize this joystick even after contacting Saitek. The driver and software for this Joystick is not available any longer. There is an AV8R driver but does not fully support this AV8R-03 version, only the -01 Pacific model and for the -02 X-Box model(available thru Microsoft website).
I am fairly sophisticated when it comes to computers so I attempted to create a generic profile driver for it and was able to get all functions working with the exception of the THROTTLE, windows will only recognize the throttle as a TRIGGER (always on/always off). This does not help, the throttle needs a set of varying degrees from 0-100%. I even tried serial port monitors like XPADDER and PPJOY and even after trying to use some advanced modifiers was unable to get the THROTTLE to function as intended. Tons of Youtube videos of these issues with this product and none had an answer. This is why it is discontinued, Too bad, this stick looks really generic but has a MAX deflection of +/- 15 degrees, perfect amount of deadzone(slight hand movements from pulling the trigger doesn't move plane), and amazing tension.
This works on PS3 with no issues at all!!! JUST NOT 4 PC
I have a rule of never buying anything from Amazon that isn't PRIME, but this price was "TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE".. Now I have to wait for the package to be picked up and returned then wait for it to hit my credit card to get my refund, I refuse to order a replacement until that happens. Teach myself a lesson!!!
Sadly the whole thing feels light and cheap (compared to the Microsoft SPP 3D) and the throttle control is combined (not separated as one might imagine from the design).
Overall, the thing works and my kids like it!
Pretty much all of the regular playstation buttons, however notably absent are dedicated R1 and L1 buttons. Instead, you get an option switch that allows you to change between "M1" and "M2" button layouts. M2 re-arrages the layout so that the trigger and all of the buttons on the stick's top represent the shoulder buttons and triggers instead of the face buttons. The face buttons are present in both modes in the form of an additional HAT stick on the unit's base. It might seem a little odd at first but it works. You also get a swiveling action on the stick for the rudder controls, and a little throttle that moves forwards and backwards (it controls the L2 and R2 triggers in standard mode).
The stick is not without drawbacks, however I find them forgivable due to the unit's price point (I got it for $20). First of all, this stick does not have much weight to it. The base very light, and it most certainly feels like something made of plastic. I would have much preferred the base be made out of metal, because that would make it feel much more sturdy and stable, but on the other hand, it probably be more expensive. I would have also preferred that all buttons be physically present in both operational modes, and the seam in the middle of the stick can be a bit annoying after long play sessions (you may wish to fix this by wrapping some kind of material around it). Lastly, the stiffness of the stick was a little more than my typical preference. The T-Flight series allow you to adjust the stiffness manually, and I prefer a looser feeling flight stick, especially when the base is so light. However, this is a matter of preference, and I got used to it after a while. If you like a stiffer feeling spring, this should please you quite nicely.
Overall though, these are only minor issues for a stick in this price range. If you have an occasional interest in flight sims, space shooters and the like, this stick will serve your needs well. However, if you're a hardcore flight sim nut and are fine with using your right hand, you may want to spend a few bucks more and get something a bit beefier. Overall though, I like this stick and I think it's a good choice for console gamers who want something that is friendly to left handed users.
