Best Joystick for Mac?

7 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

As a new mac user and new to WW2OL and online gaming in general, I realize that I really need a joystick.

I have asked my squad mates which they think is the best, but they are all PC users. The general consensus is the Saitek X52, but does this work on a mac?

I have a Macbook Pro

Mac OS X 10.6.6

Processor: 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo

Memory: 4GB 1067 MHz DDR3

What does the Mac community think is the best joystick?

Virtually all joysticks (USB) work on the mac. The X52 is nice although some people think the stick is too loose. I do like having a throttle and stick separate (I have an old Thrustmaster Afterburner) - makes tanking easier since the throttle can be left on while driving.

Any stick will work. Since you are going for your first one, buy a "relatively" cheap (<50$) stick. Read reviews about durability/stiffness.

You WILL break your first stick, so get one with training wheels made of titanium.

Not sure if best or not, but the Logitech 3d pro extreme is very solid and has lots of buttons and 8 way switches. It is around $30 if I recall.

I went through 3 Logitech 3d pro extreme JSs in 18 months, then bought an X52 but found it was too small for my man sized hands so I returned it.

I finally went and bought a CH Products Fighterstick about 2 years ago and finally found JS heaven. It works flawlessly on a Mac or PC (I have both) and its solidly built. Mine works just the same as when I first unboxed it.

My vote is for CH.

CH Fighterstick + CH Pro Pedal + (optionally) CH Throttle.

Quite expensive if you want all setup, though.

If you dont planning flying, you only need joystick, no need pedals and throttle
