Man this joystick is awesome, you can turn the stick from side to side(yaw) and it has a wide rotating angle, not like the old Microsoft sidewinder stick where when you turned the stick and you could feel those corners like a D-pad and it felt like it wanted to bounce back to the middle resisting your push.
The stick really stays true to its name and has alot of freedom of movement, it has a verry nice large trigger button and one of my facourite features is the octagonal HAT button. It has a very solid build and feels like care was taken in building it, the thrust bar is metal aswell.
Also when i opened the box it came with 3 AA duracell batteries which i thought was awesome, because i forgot to buy batteries as its wireless.
On to the wireless quality, you can comfortably sit back with this on your lap and play your games, i just plugged the wireless reciever into my computer, windows installed the software automatically witout having to use any disc's and started playing X3 straight away. In total the stick has 9 buttons and a good wireless range.
Great buy and worth the money
