    Years ago I paid $189 for the all metal Thrusmaster joystick throttle set up. Can't remember the model number. After some light usage the joystick no longer worked. Opened up the "all metal" joystick to find the actuators were made of plastic and had snapped off! So you don't always get what you pay for.

    Thrustmaster is notorious for poor quality. Their wheels loose center and just stop working as well. While their products do look good and feel high quality the internals are usually very poor quality.

    I used my Hotas X (which this looks uncannily similar to this) for SC and it was fine. Nothing special but it works

    All the stuff TM makes below the 300 euro mark is mostly not worth it. Also the fact that this model has been out for at least 10+ years should steer people way clear from this stick. Rather pick up a Logitech extreme 3d pro for half the money this one is costing.

    Full disclosure; I have owned nothing but Logitech joysticks so I'm not qualified to speak to the quality of Thrustmaster sticks.
    That said, I've had very few problems with my Logitech sticks that weren't a result of my wearing them out. I'm not big into flight sims now but back in the day I would spend all day long playing Jane's USNF '97 (yeah, I'm that old) and later Jane's Fighter's Anthology with my Logitech sticks. That was about 20 years ago. That Logitech stick lasted me a good 5 years. When it wore out I put it in a place of honour in my closet (later threw it out when I moved) after I bought a new-model Logitech stick as a replacement. By the time I stopped playing flight sims (because I was bored with them) that second stick was not in bad shape. The only reason I thew that one out te years later was because it had collected so much dust that didn't want it anymore, not because there was anything wrong with it but because I had simply not used it.
