Hi guys, I'm a long time away from simming (ex MSFS and Targetware) and my old MS Sidewinder joystick bit the dust years ago. Now, I want to get up in the virtual sky again, and my brilliant daughter wants to provide me with a top end controller and rudder pedal set up for Christmas! She's been on some sim forums to do research but it's come down to me to do the final decision-making. It seems to be a choice between the Warthog and Saitek. I run Win 10 and am an ex pilot on old stick and rudder aeroplanes so I need a setup that's compatible at both ends! I have absolutely NO idea about the pros and cons of modern joysticks - they all look a bit 'fast jet' to me but I'm sure the functionality's the same. (I also will have to get to grips with Teamspeak and Track IR, but one thing at a time!)
As a newcomer to the modern flight simming world I'd be grateful for any advice you've got re the joysticks. Looking forward to seeing you in the skies!
