What can I do with this flight stick?
The power of flight is yours when using the Speedlink Black Widow XE Flight Stick. Connect to your computer for use with flying based games and simulators and become a top virtual pilot. Live your childhood dreams of becoming a pilot and control your aeroplane using the joystick to soar through the skies.

How does this flight stick differ from others?
This flight stick is ergonomically designed, allowing you to comfortably grip the joystick without causing strain when reaching for the trigger buttons. The joystick itself comes with an eight way hat switch for an all-round view of the cockpit while you’re flying. Additionally, the flight stick comes with an integrated throttle control so you can control what speed you cruise at through the air.

How secure is the stick while in use?
The non-slip rubber design of the grip allows for a comfortable and secure handle of the joystick during flight and even comes with suction pads so you can stick it to a table. This allows you to fix it down without having to readjust when taking off or landing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best way to fly...on a budget! Got myself this as early birthday present, and I'm loving it! The Maplin service and delivery were great, and so is the Black Widow XE. Controls are silky smooth and yet have a slight resistance, so you're not moving them by accident. The silky texture of the main joystick and throttle feel much better quality than the price would indicate. Overall, a real budget must-have at the this price.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not for windows 10, Steam or VR use This joystick crashed Steam and my games when connected. Check all reviews and forums it's a common problem and there's no support/updated drivers. I switched to Logitech extreme - worked first time. Good service from Maplin Bedford when exchanging.
