The Flare Path: A Stick For A Stone.

As most of you know I personally use the Thrustmaster HOTAS Warthog flight system and I think it's the very best flight hardware money can buy. I came across this very interesting article and I think is a worthwhile read.

My opinion is:

If you fly an aircraft which has a yoke: Use a yoke.

If you fly an Airbus: Use the $20 Logitech Wingman Attack 3, it's the closest thing to an Airbus sidestick that's also affordable.

If you fly the DCS A-10: Use the HOTAS Warthog.

IMO the most unrealistic aspect of flightsimming today is the lack of a good 'artificial feel' system for home FS controllers, especially for the yoke and rudder. In real flight you can feel the aerodynamic forces (ie. Trim) acting on the control surfaces, which are transmitted via cables and pulleys to the yoke and rudder. (or in hydraulic powered non-Airbus aircraft, accurately simulated through their own artificial feel systems) To do this in a home FS yoke you'll need some heavy-duty motors and software which can calculate the correct amount and the direction of stick forces.
