I think there have plenty of past posts that describe each stick.

I bought the Tmaster HOTAS before it was announced that the hat switch is inferior to the aviator.

I really like the HOTAS setup and will stick with this stick.. That sounded weird.

Other: Ace Edge





If I was getting it for the PS3 though, I would go with the aviator. A HOTAS setup is certainly nice, but the analog view stick of the Aviator I think is far more essential.

I just got the Thrustmaster T-x. Pretty good IMO.

I just returned my AV8R-03. The analog hat was great but the deadzone was immense (enough to make me think that there was something wrong with it) and there is NO variable rudder control. I use my rudder alot and having it either be fully on or fully off is a deal breaker for me. The look of the AV8R is cool but it feels kind of lightweight.
I purchased a HOTAS X and I pray it performes better.

I bought the T-master a few months ago and played the original IL-2 on PC with it while I was waiting for the demo to release. On the PC, it worked like a dream, but when I tried to play the demo with it I was sorely disappointed. The hat switch only allows you to look to 3 and 9 o'clock so there is a huge blind spot at 6 o'clock as well as 3 and 9 o'clock high.

So, I went out and bought the AV8R-03 and tried it with the demo. The analog hat switch works alot better, but the rudder control is terrible. It is either all on or all off.

I will be playing with the AV8R-03 because the free-look function is the most important thing to me.

Both sticks suffer from a pretty big dead zone. I believe it is due to the programming of the game, because with the original IL-2 on the PC, there was no dead zone at all. This makes lining up a shot really difficult. After you have worked to get on the six of a bandit and just need to pitch the nose up just a little bit to pull lead, you will pull back on the stick a little and nothing happens, so you pull back a little more...still nothing. You pull back a little more and the nose violently pitches up and the moment is gone. It can be pretty frustrating at times. I hope they are able to do something about the dead zone in a future patch as well as the AV8R-03 rudder problem.

Can I ask how the T.Flight hat switch worked on the PC version? I can only imagine they will fix the console versions to work in the same way, considering the amount of people that find this to be an issue. I agree with the deadzone problem too, the joystick is more fun generally but I find it easier to be more precise with my aim, using the controller.

I feel your pain dude. I managed to get behind a FW-190 and missed out because I was struggling with the controls to line up a shot. I really hope they can fix this. I don't know why they would have deemed this acceptable considering these flight sticks are actually mentioned in the game's set up screen.
