    Hi

    I have just purchased X Plane 9 for my MBP. Can anybody suggest a joystick that I can use that is compatible with MBP (running Snow Leopard 10.6.7) and X Plane 9.
    I have an old MS Force Feedback 2 but that doesn't seem to be compatible.

    Vary many thanks.

    Saitek makes some good joysticks for flight sims also. Logitech is another good brand.

    I bought the 3d pro for other flight sims, was unaware it worked under Snow Leopard. I like it, much cheaper now than when I bought it. Mine got kinda squeaky after a bit of use(long bomb runs over English channel). I put a little olive oil on it, been squeak free for years.

    I'll be honest, I am not expecting it to work on these new Intel Macs as I have heard some people say that their Mac-compatible joysticks worked well on their iMacs but not on their Intel Macs. Oh well, we will see what happens when it arrives.

    I have the CH Fighterstick on my PC, but I know it supports the Mac -- you'll just have to rely on X PLane to setup its axis and its buttons, since there's no control software for the Mac.

    Anyways, the only reason I mention it, is when compared to the cheaper Logitech, it's night day better when it comes to precision and going by my prior CH products, I've never had one fail on me, so I have the same faith in this newer stick.

    Anyone know if the Thrustmaster T-flight Stick X is compatible with the MacOSX version of X-Plane?
