    So does anyone use this HOTAS stick and how does it work with the mac? I am thinking about updating my stick and this looks like a winner for the price. Does everything work on it or is it more PC friendly?

    Thanks in advance

    I have one from my PC; since I don't have any flight sims for the Mac I can't state how it works. :(

    But, based on my PC experience, it's a solid stick and I do recommend it. In fact, the lack of flight sims on the Mac is one of my "cons" from making the switch last year.

    (What is there for the Mac? XPlane?)

    I mainly use it for WW2OL or Battlefield Europe as it is now called.

    just trying to figure out if I will lose a lot of functionality since the drivers seem to be PC centric. Don't want to waste money on something that won't do what I want it to do. The game has a keymapper that should work but I am trying to get some more input before I buy.
