I was thinking about going out this weekend and picking up a joystick for BF2 since I've heard they're better for piloting with. I was wondering what are a few good makes and models out there that people are using for flying? If you remember the prices that would help too.

Saitek Cyborg Evo. Flying is so much more natural and fluid with a joystick.

Well I don't really have a problem with the mouse if I'm flying a helo. I just want the joystick for dogfights. The endless dragging and repositioning of the mouse doesn't really work often.

Logitech Freedom 2.4 Cordless Joystick owns :D and, I don't think it was that expensive for a good joystick

Well I looked around a bit and I'm thinking about this one. From what I've read the only negative thing about that one is it's weight. It's a bit light and some have said they've had problems with it moving about on their desk but I don't exactly plan on jerking mine around or pulling back on it that hard anyway so I think this might do alright. You know... that whole paragraph could be taken horribly out of context.

I have a Saitek X45 that works really well, its really smooth and its a HOTAS or Hands On Throttle And Stick. It has more buttons than anyone knows what to do with and is fully programable. It is a little bit more but you can get alot out of it. link at http://www.saitekusa.com/USA/prod/x45.htm

Damn. That thing looks pretty cool. Closest I'll probably ever get to sitting in a cockpit. But none the less, if it looks that cool chances are I can't afford it. What I can afford is that Logitech one I found. I just ran across one on eBay for 99 cents so here's hoping no one else bids on it.
