So what's everyone using, stick-wise, these days?
I'm still using my trusty old Sidewinder 3D Pro with that USB mod that grendle made maaany years ago, but it's starting to get a bit wobbly and I've had to slowly increase the deadzone as years have gone by as the saturn ring and spring have started to wear so it doesn't centre properly.
So I'm looking at things that can take its place!
One stick that has caught my eye is the Thrustmaster T16000M; Anyone here got one? What do you think?
Since owning the Sidewinder with its optical sensors, I can't go back to the vague pots or resistance strips as used in most sticks, and also much prefer the saturn ring/ball'n'socket mount compared to the gimbal mount used in most other sticks, and the T16000M seems to tick those boxes.
That and it's pretty cheap! (£31!)
So on paper it sounds okay, but what's it like to use? Flimsy or pretty solid? Also, what's the throw like, and do the hat and buttons feel good quality or do you think they'll wear out with serious button mashing?
The trigger looks like it'll break pretty easily if I squeeze it too hard...
Or, other suggestions!
