Re: pc gaming

course you can.. the problem you get with good flight sim games is theres hundreds of functions to control, even with a good joystick+throttle+rudder pedals connected theres still loads of other stuff to control on the keyboard.. great fun tho when you sort it all out.. my buddies and i play "lock on" and "sturmovik" and we used play "gunship" heli sim all multi player.. jeeeez what a giggle..

Re: pc gaming

You can also use an Xbox360 controller. They work great.

Game on!

Re: pc gaming

Of course you can , you can even use the a joypad if the game doesn't support it directly , can't remember the name of the program but it just remaps the keyboad's keys to the joypad.

Get the XBOX 360 controller for PC... probably the best analog controller available today. Works great with simulators, including FSX.
