    Well my Saitek 3D force joystick died today, and I need to get a new one to play FS9 (2004). So what is the best and most reliable on the market?

    You really need to drive a joystick to find out if you like it.

    My personal favorite is the Logitech 3D. It has a weighted base so it doesn't go flying around when I get excited and the price and constrruction quality is right. They last 10-12 months gaming aggressively 4 hours a night. Lots longer now that I found out what carpel tunnel syndrome is... :eek:

    Look at how well the stick is made. Some of the brands are so flimsy it's pathetic. The MS and Saitek look well built also.

    Well I took your advice and whent to bestbuy and fell in love with the logictech 2.4 GHZ wireless. It doesn't have forcefeed back but the precision is awesome. Although I do hear a clicking in my 2.4 GHZ cordless phone now :( LOL But it is not serious. But this joystick rocks! And I have to say with what little I ahve used it it is a must for serious flight simers.

    LOL, As I was working my way down this thread, I was gonna recommend the logitech 2.4 cordless as well. But it seems you already have it so Ill just say congratulations instead. It really is a nice stick. Best Ive ever used.
