The Mad Catz Saitek Aviator Flight Stick is touted to be a highly advanced combat joystick that was specially designed to enhance just about any flight simulation experience, and the oversized flat base certainly goes a long way for gamers when it comes to introducing increased stability. In addition, it features a trio of dedicated Fire Buttons so that you won’t go wrong when faced with enemies. Another feature on the Aviator Flight Stick is its heavy-duty Combat Trigger as well as POV (point-of-view) Analog Stick to help you be more nimble in the air. Not only that, you have an innovative Throttle Lever that was specially positioned to cater for ambidextrous gamers, so all you southpaws (including me) need not feel left out again. As for its two position Mode Switch, that enables gamers to perform on the fly changes to button configuration so that the ideal controls can be achieved as and when you need them. These Flight Sticks are certified by Mad Catz to function perfectly with game titles on both platforms, including the Blazing Angels series, and Ubisoft’s new combat flight simulator, Tom Clancy’s: HAWX. If you happen to own either console as well as a PC, rest assured the Saitek Aviator Flight Stick also works perfectly fine with it, just make sure that your desktop computer is up to par when it comes to system specifications since flight simulators can be pretty pretty demanding on the hardware.
