Bought MS Flight Sim 2020 for $140 CDN, wow. Want a joystick supported in MS Flight Sim. I read the Thrustmaster 4X is good, but I heard even that stick doesn't show up as a pic (fully supported) in the flight Sim. Anyone have comments or suggestions for a good stick that is fully supported? I don't want pedals, just the stick . Separate throttle lever like the 4X is ok. Thanks.

    Still assembled, still runs. Haven't turned it on for 13 years?
I looked at the Warthog. Base is a bit complicated for me plus they want about $400 CDN for it. Went with the T.Flight Hotas One, the first one on Ghot's link. Setup was a breeze in Windows 11 and the pic of the stick shows up in MS Flight Sim controls, so fully supported. Passed taxiing training. Now if I can only figure out how to take off and land I will be a happy camper. Graphics quite amazing. So many planes, airports. Good stuff Microsoft.

This one is verified to work in MS flight SIM 2020. It's cheap and decent. Good for many other flight and space sims too.

Looks great SlicEnDice. My Hotas One was also about $150 CDN.

Not sure if this is a hardware question or a gaming question, but I'll continue here because it relates to my nice new T.Flight Hotas One. Is there a way in game that I can print out the mapping of the game controls and my Hotas One? I don't mean what the keyboard keys do, I mean what my mapped Hotas One mappings do . There should be a way in game to print out a sheet of this info, but I don't see it.Can't find it on tthe internet so far. Thanks guys.

take a screenshot (windows + shift+s) and you will have your mapping of your joystick then print on your printer or eb shortcuts on screen, it's up to you..!!!
