Top Customer Reviews
With my last stick being the TM Cougar, I learned to appreciate softer springs, precision and overall reliability. Most of these were missing with my one year old Cougar which now seems was all about looks.
Being made by dedicated flight simming accessories company, CH Fighterstick seems to be one of less known secrets of hardcore sim crowd.
At first, I was suspicious because of its plastic feel. The stick is big enough even for large hands, while people with smaller hands may find it somewhat uncofortable.
Springs are very light. This is a plus for me, as it allows higher precision, especially near the center. You don't get to wrestle the springs during your flying. It has great throw, so there is a lot of room for precision input throughout the range of motion.
Trim wheels for both axes help even in simulations without trim controls. Smart stuff.
There is a throttle wheel at the base of the stick. If you have a throttle, this wheel can be mapped to another function, but you won't be able to reach it without letting your hand off the trottle or stick.
Software is excellent and it actually rivals the software being shipped with the Cougar. As with the stick itself, at first it looks toyish. After a while you learn its huge capabilities.
Verdict: The best high end joystick out there - precision, programming abilities, reliability and simplicity being its trump cards.
The stick only comes with an instruction sheet. There is no owners Manual or software disk included. The new owner must download the drivers and CH Control Manager software from the CH website. Setup is a very simple operation which involves plugging your stick into it's own USB port and running the drivers software. Setup was completed without a hitch and I did not miss the absent owners Manuel. I then proceeded to use the CH Manager software to configure the stick for the first time. It was at this time that I encountered my first and only problem while using the software. While attempting to configure the Y axis I noticed that the stick's signal would jump from one end of the scale to the other with very little movement from the stick itself. I could not figure out what the problem was on my own so I called CH customer service and they told me to be sure and center the two trim wheels before configuration. Sure enough after I corrected the position of the two wheels, the configuration process was completed without a problem.
Next, I ran Lock On in order to put the stick through it's first flight trials. The Fighterstick fits my medium sized hand very well.Read more ›
I'm 28, and I just returned home to CH Products with this stick, the CH Fighterstick.
I'm not going to go over the pro-cons of it all; instead I will go over the individual features and try to stay as objective as possible.
Large base, light weight. The first thing you notice is how beefy and well-built it is.
The buttons are sharp and precise with next to no wobble(check out your Logitech - put your finger on a button, and wiggle it around without activating. That's what I mean.).
The axis movement is sharp with only a small amount of slop. I'm somewhat concerned with the slop in the X axis - I don't recall the Flightstick Pro having it, and it is noticeable. To be fair, it's also much less than the slop found in any Logitech and CERTAINLY any Saitek stick. I have a fair idea of how to fix it, but doing so would void the excellent 2-year warranty. I'm not sure if it's bad enough to send in for warranty work, since it's already worlds better than cheaper sticks.Read more ›
