Saitek Aviator Joystick Xbox 360/PC

December 19th, 2009

Recently I posted a review about Battlefield 1943 and mentioned how difficult it is to fly the planes with the xbox controllers.  Looking through Amazon today and saw the Saitek Aviator Joystick that can be used with the Xbox 360.

Saitek Aviator JoystickFor only £29.99 Saitek Aviator Joystick looks like a good buy.  After Christmas think i’ll be investing in one of these. Reading some of the reviews on Amazon.

Generally good but could be better
To summarise I am happy with the stick. It feels well made and is intuitive to use. The "look around" stick on the top is great and the throttle and missile switch are all nice touches. There are still some glitches using the stick with IL2 such as the lack of brakes when landing but apparently these will be fixed in the game shortly.

If you have used this joystick for Battlefield 1943 please let me know how you found it.
