Product Review:

Almost every gamer gets tempted to buy a flightstick -- joystick with all the fun buttons and top hat configurations -- at least once in their lifetime. The sticks come in all shapes and sizes, from those based on actual military hardware (the "Top Gun" flightstick) to the extremely exotic, and even those with extra features like Microsoft's force feedback sticks. There's one thing they all have in common, however; every one of them needs to have a pretty heavy base, or else risk losing usefulness. They all also have to sit on a desk or lap, thus forcing the user's arm to a certain point to play their games.

Until now.

The latest thing from VRStandard is their Airstik 2000, a joystick that actually functions WITHOUT A BASE. It's an extremely fun thing, and works incredibly well with any sort of flight simulator game. In fact, it's almost the perfect stick.
