I upgraded from an older Sidewinder Pro when I realized that I didn't have a standard joystick port on my "new" machine. Looked online and found this at a good price, and have been pleased with it so far. I also didn't pay attention and realize it was a force feedback model. I have large hands, but it is comfortable and is easy to use in many of the different flight simulator (WW2 Combat sims, mostly). The only cons (for me, anyway) was the fact the rudder and throttle are, well, confusing at first. The rudder is on the base as a dial (like the throttle on the old Sidewinder's) and the throttle is on the top of the stick where the "3" button used to be. Number "2" is a thumb button on the side of the stick. Takes a little getting used to, but I'm getting used to it. The Calibration screen is very informative and is easy to use. The force-feedback is good, and you can adjust the strength easily. In all, for the price, it's pretty sweet.
