    I'm looking for a good Joystick Controller for my Apple II. Any suggestions? I'm considering the StarFighter by Suncom or the Mach III.

    The CH Mach three controller was one of the most classic controllers during the Apple 2 days. The other classic one I used a bunch was the CH Flightstick (2 button).

    I got an off brand one with my II Plus. Can't recall the name of it right now...

    But I found it very awkward and tacky so I found a great deal on an Apple Joystick IIe/IIc. Came with the original box and all.

    All you need is a little adapter that swaps the ribbon type connection on the II/II Plus for the more common DB-9 connection on the Apple Joystick and you're good to go. Suits it well I think!​

    I'm sure "Quickshot" did some models for the II or IIe. Can't recall or find specifics. :(
