IMG Reviews the FunStick Pro F-108
12:12 PM | IMG News | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a review by Tim Morgan, our resident flight sim guru, of the FunStick Pro F-108 USB joystick by Macsense and its older sibling, the F-106 iFunStick.

Morgan begins his review by summing up the issues for casual flight simulator buffs in choosing a controller:

Flight simulators have traditionally appealed to a wide variety of customers. Hard-core players have always demanded the absolute in realism, fidelity, and technical accuracy. On the other end of the spectrum, however, reside the after-work aviators who are quite willing to devote the majority of their time to something other than following the tadpole across the HUD — things such as their families, careers, food, and other equally perplexing distractions. Gamers such as these will easily become overwhelmed with the complexity of high-end HOTAS systems, and even if they can swallow that, the prices will certainly induce the gag reflex.

To meet this demand, Macsense offers two joysticks as part of their "FunStick" line: the F-106 iFunStick and the F-108 FunStick Pro. There are only a few minor differences between the two sticks, but seeing as the F-106 is no longer shipping, emphasis will be placed on the F-108.

For the rest of our review of these joysticks, follow the link below.
