Saitek Cyborg EVO

Until very recently this was my current joystick. It was bought as a replacement for the Saitek ST50 which lacked the necessary number of buttons really needed for flight sims. Initially this stick’s extra buttons were put to use with Crimson Skies - but since then I’ve used it with many other sims to great effect.

As well as 6 main buttons - it has a 8 way hat switch and both throttle and twist rudder control. It also has an additional 6 buttons on the base - 2 of which can be used as shift buttons if required. It also is adjustable for left and right hand use.

Like many of the higher end Saitek controllers - this stick has the Saitek Smart Technology (SST) system which allows clever programming of stick and button functions. This really helps on the older games with limited stick support.

I really liked this stick - but it started to wear after several hundred hours of gameplay. More importantly the main fire trigger became very unresponsive. The stick went back under guarentee and I took the opportunity to upgrade to the force feeback version - the Saitek Cyborg EVO Force.
