    Advice on a great joystick

    I'd love a few opinions on a nice affordable Joystick to get for IL-2......the one i got 6 months ago just doesnt do the trick....a Logitech Extreme 3d.....the stick itself doesnt feel very stable when you let it go and is just too sloppy for a sim as this....SO....i'm in the market for another one...any ideas and help would be appreciated...thanks

    I currently have a couple of sticks.

    Saitek X-45 Great stick loads of buttons, dials and a great throttle.

    Logitech Wingman force (original). Another great stick, but no rudder FF is great, although my wrist isnt as strong as it was, since getting married. This is the best FF stick I have used and is damn strong,. Am looking at using this with my Saitek throttle, hope it works.
