The CH Flightstick Pro has a large, sturdy base with non-slip rubber feet that won't move around on your desk during play. The ambidextrous handle is designed for both right and left handed use with a slide throttle wheel on the left side of the base for rudder. Dual rotary trim wheels on the base give you precise adjustment of ailerons and elevator and as with all CH Products’ devices, the Flightstick Pro is built to last through generations of enjoyment.
The CH Flightstick Pro is a solid, rugged joystick built to last. Made with military-grade materials and high-end industrial components, CH controllers go through extensive QC testing to ensure years of entertainment.

Top Customer Reviews
Good, solid feel; doesn't "walk" around on the desk.
No complaints, other than I wish I had gotten a model with more buttons.
One reason I like the Flightstick Pro is that it's one of the only high-end joysticks that you can use with either hand. The latest flight sims let you pan around the "virtual cockpit" with the mouse, so I prefer to fly with the joystick in my left hand and my mouse in the right. You fly most real-world aircraft with your left hand anyway, another reason I prefer this configuration. Most of the fancier joysticks (including CH Products F-16-styled options) are built for right-hand use only.
The Flightstick Pro works right out of the box, with no need to load drivers or other software--just plug it in and off you go. The base is solid and heavy enough that it doesn't slide around your desk, but it's still compact enough that you can move it off to the side of your desk and not have to worry about storing it when you're doing your regular computing.
Although it lacks the bells and whistles and slick look of other offerings, the Flightstick Pro has a precise, solid feel that is unmatched in any other joystick I've tried. CH Products has a long-standing reputation for quality, and if a basic joystick is what you're looking for I don't think you can top this one.
Primarily, the thing I find most useful is the *extremely* forgiving/elastic "spring" action; the Flightstick requires *very* little effort to move along the extents of it's X and Y axis' and such movement and effort needed to realize it is equally precise and unchanging throughout the full range of either axis' extents. There is no greater or lesser tension depending on where on the axis' you might be passing through. It's ridiculously smooth and even and one finds oneself giving more attention to precision and more subtle movements as opposed to trying to jam the stick back and forth or side to side as things become frenzied in game play. Again, the motion is extremely easy ... in fact, you could play any game/simulator and experience the joysticks complete range of motion on either axis using just one finger placed on the top of the Flightstick; it's literally, *that* effortless in it's motions. Some people might find this disconcerting at first but once you acclimate, you won't look at other joysticks in the same way any more.
Further, this ease of movement allows the base of the joystick to stay firmly planted on the desk...with no lifting of the edges or corners as you make full sweeps of the sticks movement gamut.Read more ›
Only small issue is that I noticed the computer wont go to sleep on its own with it plugged in, but that's not much of an issue at all to me.
There is no rotation in the stick, only x,y movement, so that is something to consider.
The tuning to non movement works very well, and the stick is by default compatible with the Google Earth Flight Simulator.
All buttons are very responsive, and have a good tactile feel to them.
The construction is VERY solid, and the plastic is really high quality stuff. Think LEGO quality. Nothing cheap feeling about this joystick at all.
The cord is way long, which is super useful for how I have it setup on my desk.
Overall a great purchase, as I expect it to last a very long time.
