Best Flight Stick For PC – Top 5 Best PC Combat Flight Simulator Joystick Controls

Best Flight Joystick For PC - Top 5 Best PC Flight Sticks:

1. Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog Joystick: (Amazon)
+ VG Hotas Warthog Dual Throttles and Control Panel:

Easily, the best flight stick around. Thrustmaster rules the flight josticks just as the steering wheel niche and this model is highly recommended if you're serious about the game and want to pull out the maximum. Not the cheapest one around, but the quality is sure worth it.

- Joystick replica of the U.S. Air Force A-10C attack aircraft flight stick
- Stand-alone HOTAS Warthog joystick, from the creator of the original HOTAS concept and the worldwide benchmark flight sim controllers: the HOTAS Cougar and the HOTAS Warthog
- Detachable handle, crafted entirely of metal; Also compatible with the HOTAS Cougar (and vice-versa); Replica shape of the A-10C flight stick

2. Thrustmaster T-16000M Flight Stick: (Amazon)
+ CH Products Pro Throttle:

Using the same sensors as Warthog, T-16000M is a very popular choice between those into combat flight simulators. No matter, it's War Thunder, Elite Dangerous, Star Citizen or Arma 3, if you're a fighter, this flight stick MUST be considered, due it's very high precision. No deadzone in the center either. Only cons are the lack of fingertip buttons and a separate throttle, and that's where the CH Products Pro Throttle, with it's great ergonomics and extra buttons, comes in handy, making this combo an awesome budget alternative for Warthog.

- Fully ambidextrous joystick
- HEART (Hall Effect AccuRate Technology) offers greater precision due to magnetic sensors which allow for friction-free action
- Helical spring (2.8mm dia) located in the stick providing firm, linear & smooth tension
- 16 action buttons, 12 on the base & 4 on the stick
- Multidirectional hat for panoramic view

3. CH Products Fighterstick: (Amazon)

The first thing about CH Products is - they last forever. And you bet, they are good. This company's main focus is real industrial controls for all kinds of machines. Again, their "Pro Throttle" makes another deadly combo for flight sim gaming.

- USB programmable joystick
- 3 axis and 24 buttons (three push buttons, one mode switch button, three 4 way hat switches and one 8 way point of view hat)
- Total of 132 programmable functions with the new Control Manager software (included)
- Realistic F-16 handle

4. Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Flight Stick: (Amazon)

Currently the best selling flight stick, and no surprise - it comes with a throttle and the price is more than inviting. But you can't expect it to be as precise as those offers above. There is also a big deadzone in the middle, so if you're in to combat sims, then it would be no more as the best budget solution, and a good stick for those who just wanna fly around with not much fighting.

- Wide hand-rest for optimal comfort
- Programmable 12 buttons & 5 axels
- Dual-system aerodynamic control either by rotating handle with integrated blocking system or by progressive tilting lever
- Internal memory saves all of programming, even with the joystick disconnected
- Detachable, real-size, ergonomically-designed throttle control

5. Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick for Windows: (Amazon)

Cheapest PC flight stick, and that says it all. If you want to take a tase of how gaming with a joystick feels, just fool around, or looking for that not so pricey gift, this one is a good option. And it actually isn't that bad, everything is relative, right?

- 12 action buttons, an eight-way hat switch, and a rapid-fire trigger
- Button customization and multiple controller configurations


Also, you can check out the Saitek products, but I just can't recommend these, due to very bad experience and lack of quality for their price.
