I ordered this joystick for the sole purpose of flying jets in Battlefield 3. This is important to note, because anyone who has used a joystick with BF3 will know that the joystick support for that game is absolutely horrible. Most joysticks, even MUCH more expensive ones, have at least one or two quirks such as the throttle not working or even as serious as the game not recognizing you have a joystick plugged in at all.

The Saitek Cyborg V.1 joystick works absolutely flawlessly in Battlefield 3. Every button was able to be bound, and the throttle control even works. I had zero issues whatsoever in using this joystick with BF3. I literally plugged it in - and it just worked.

As far as the joystick itself, I'm not exactly a joystick connoisseur...however I can confidently say that the feel and performance of it is exactly what I expected. No frills, it just works, and it has the features I wanted (Z-Axis). I wouldn't say that it feels cheap, although it is very light.

Now as far as drawbacks go, no product is without faults. The Saitek Cyborg V.1 is no exception to that rule, but I didn't find anything worth taking a star away. The USB cord is somewhat short, the joystick itself is somewhat light so in heavy use you will need to hold it down with your free hand, there is a button that falls right underneath my ring finger that I often find myself hitting under heavy use...though I didn't bind it to anything (so it does nothing), and finally the resistance of the stick itself feels maybe a touch high considering the weight of the stick.

I have several flight sticks, Thrustmaster, Logitech Attack, et al. The Cyborg is a pretty decent stick for the price. I have 3 complaints: 1) the throttle doesn't work an a lot of my flight sim games (I have to use the keyboard). It does work on MS Flight Sim X but not on Il-2 1946, for example. 2) It is a very light stick and I find myself (and the stick) falling off the edge of my desk when I'm trying to shake a Bf 109E off my six. The twist rudder works well, no dead zone to speak of, nice, firm motions of the stick itself. (3) It takes a little getting used to the buttons being on top of the stick (not sure I'm sold on that!). All and all, not a bad stick!

An ok stick that has some nice buttons. Unfortunately the geniuses who engineered it decided that the wires and the rod used to torque the stick for Z axis rotation should share the same space. As a result, your twisting of the stick pushes against wires, which will eventually manifest itself in the Z axis rotation. The Z axis rotation uses voltage to determine left/right twist, and besides some voltage noise that results in that particular axis just overall being jittery, eventually the wire connections will loosen and ever so slightly introduce voltage drops which result in random twists to the left. This would be ok if it didn't happen after about 6 months. Attempts to fix the issue only result in frustration.

If you notice I look around or look up when I stutter, its just a habit of mine. Also this review was meant to put on YouTube, so thats why I say the link is in the description below.

This is a great joystick and I'd recommend it to anybody, to the hardcore gamer or someone just casually messing around with it. Its great for the price and will blow all other joysticks in its price range out of the water. Its very lightweight, as I said in the video, it doesn't even weigh 1 pound! This is a pro for me because I don't really need a heavy joystick around. The throttle lever doesn't move as fast as my old lever did, which helps you get accurate engine power.
Another reviewer said that the cord is too short, which isn't true. I can pull it half the way across my room, which is about 15 feet in width. My only problems with this joystick is how easy it is to press down the pinky button, as I accidentally press it when I'm flying in combat, or even when Im just trying to get altitude. And how the POV switch is too small, sometimes making it hard to get a good view. If you use a head tracking software, this isn't a problem though.

Overall its worth the cost and can compete with some more expensive joysticks.

Pros

Lightweight
Quick-Fire trigger
7 buttons all within easy access on the top(13 if you make the pinkie button a SHIFT key.)
Small and easy to store
LED lights
Grip is comfortable
Throttle
It just looks amazing

Cons
Pinkie switch is too sensitive
Packaging could be better
Rudder twist could be better
POV Switch could be better

Final Verdict
Great: Worth 25 dollars and if they fixed some of the features and added things like dual throttles or even quad throttles it'd easily be worth 50 dollars, maybe more. I would buy this over a Logitech 3D Joystick because the Logitech doesn't feel as strong and is more rough around the edges.

Just got it, will update this review in a week - month with actual usage info.

Pros: Well packaged. The stick has just the right amount of resistance to allow good feedback, but still not wear you out after a few hours flying. The base looks odd, but grips most any surface very well, and has enough weight that I'm not worried about aggressive flying. 7 buttons (13 with a shift), a hat, throttle control, and rudder twist on the stick. All with a good feel and sound to them. Plastic isn't top shelf, but for the price it's much better quality than I expected. It has an exciting, aggressive look to it, and it looks even better in person.

Cons: The stick tension is held with a spring, that may wear out with constant abuse/use. I'm planning on flying for a couple hours a night for the next 6 months minimum, so I'll try and update this with wear/tear issues. From the look/feel I'm anticipating it should last quite a while.

Thoughts: Overall a good quality stick for a great price. Will easily serve beginners and some vets no problem. Like almost all other joysticks I doubt the throttle control will work, but we'll see, I'm setting up several games tonight.

Update: (1 week ownership) I've used this almost every night and it works really well. Granted I've been playing older games with it, but it holds up, and the Rudder twist is nice. The Throttle works fine, you just have to calibrate it. The base is quite sturdy, but my excited flying (heavy dogfighting) tends to make the base want to lift off the table. With only a little effort I can keep it down just fine. I still recommend this stick to anyone.
Caveat: My first attempt to install the customization software saw errors when I tried to run it... and the installer file was 124MB(?!?).
