At this point in the development of Star Citizen I don't recommend buying any kind of stick or HOTAS (hands on throttle and stick). Currently keyboard and mouse are more fully optimized. You can pilot and dogfight more precisely with a mouse than with a stick. They are however working to make sticks and full HOTAS setups a better option. So if at some point in the future you're trying to decide between the Thrustmaster and the Logitech here's my thoughts.
Comparing just the sticks, I prefer the Logitech. First thing that stands out is the base is heavier and wider. I never tipped the Logitech off of any of its feet when I was pulling back hard or anything like that. But I did with the Thrustmaster. Also there are more buttons for your thumb on the Logitech and they are in better positions and they are more satisfyingly clickly. The stick itself is a little smaller in diameter. Which I like. The Thrustmaster fit my hand fine, it was just a different feel. The Logitech takes more force to move the stick which feels good to me right now. However I could see in the middle of a long gaming session I might wish for an easier push.
On to the throttle controls. Obviously the Thrustmaster wins hands-down here. However I found that as I was dogfighting I didn't need the level of control that the Thrustmaster throttle provided. There is a command in the game that will match your speed to your target. Basically like radar enhanced cruise control on new cars. I find that when I target someone it's easiest to trigger that and I can stick to them easily. Beyond that I really only need full throttle and full stop, which I can get with voice command or a quick double tap of W or S. There are a lot of buttons on the throttle which is nice, but there's a lot of buttons on my keyboard too.
Basically if you're not going to get something with toggle switches and double thruster control like the "Mad Catz Saitek Pro Flight X-55 Rhino H.O.T.A.S." or the "Thrustmaster Hotas Warthog Joystick" (and there may never be a reason to) then save $15 and go with the Logitech you'll be happy.
Now about the joystick itself:
There are indeed 6 large buttons on the left side of the joystick, and the stick itself has 4 buttons placed on the top for your thumb. The stick is very heavy and takes a slight effort to push, so if you are looking for a stick with precision flying, this is the one for you. However you can still push the stick around rather roughly, so for games like Battlefield (if that is what you are planning on playing) then you can still make your sharp turns and crazy barrel rolls, but if you find the need to precisely fly through buildings, you can still do that. So if you want a broken down explanation, here it is...
•Can still be used for rough flying
•Many buttons that can be programmed
•Sticks to the table or platform you have it set on, so it does not pick up off the table when you start flying a little crazier.
•The trigger is indeed rapid fire, for those shooter games that need a few more "bullets-per-second"
•And many more
•The side left buttons are a little weird to press, one side goes down while the other doesnt, it may be a personal bother but it might effect other people, but not by much.
•The joystick is a little strange (many other joysticks have this problem too) because the exchange from turning into the rudder is a little fiddly, but I atleast got used to it pretty quick.
In conclusion, well worth the money, I wish I bought two.
What a pleasant surprise! This thing is very solid. Very comfortable. It has 12 buttons, an 8 dir hat, and a twisting 3 axis stick PLUS a built-in throttle. It is fairly hefty and very stable on the desk. It has a tighter feel and shorter throw than the CH Flightstick, which I don't mind. It leaves me wanting for very little. Love it.
Note: For X-Plane and other flight simulators, the throttle should be on the right. Pilots will typically control the aircraft with their left hand on the yoke or stick and right hand on the throttle(s). The HOTAS systems are backward in this regard. This right hand stick configuration is appropriate, however, for heli pilots and space sim fans.
