FWIW, and YMMV, it's a wired stick with decent to varied reviews, however, for $15 it's good enough for me to bite.

I went into local GS (socal) and noticed a new looking X360 stick marked as used for $15. The store manager of this particular store is known to me as being very conservative, remembering back when the Tony Hawk game with board controller bundle became $5, he printed out special price tags to adjust the price to $30. So my guess is these sticks might have been sitting around for a VERY long time...

Doing a stock check with this may or may not help you GS link.

amazon link to show how it looks like, and no MSRP was $50 not $150.

Good hunting.

Have a good read of the awesome FAQ by AtlanteanMan.

Only 3 stores within 100 miles of me in stock, none of them remotely close.

Damn shame since I've been looking for something to play Flight Sim X on.

The keyboard/360 controller combo is getting old.

I got one with Damage Inc when it went on sale. I own a very nice Saitek HOTAS setup for my PC (for comparison sake) ... so, for a console stand-alone flight stick, I'd say it's very good. Definitely worth $15, even $30-40.

I just pick up Flight Sim X the other day but I don't know if I want to drive 20 miles for this.
