A low priced and definately excellent combination of an analogue joystick and a throttle. Good choice if you might like to try some Flight Simulators, but don't want to spend too much money on pricier models. The combined amount of buttons and hats on the combo is more than enough to satisfy even the most meticulous control freak, and is if that wasn't enough, there's a 3-way mode switch which will effectively triple the amount of available buttons. There's even a shift button for the right pinkie finger to double the amount of choices, so each button and hat may have 6 functions, all of which are completely programmable with a program called SGE (Saitek Gaming Extensions). While a powerful tool, the SGE is not entirely User Friendly, a shortcoming made even worse by the fact that the documentation for it is piss poor. Overall, the combo works pretty well, and I would even go as far as to recommend it.
