Cyborg F.L.Y.5 and Cyborg V.1 Flight Sticks

When flying a PC flight simulator or playing games such as Air Combat, Blazing Angels, Combat Wings, Wings of Prey or Tom Clancy Hawx, you usually are active in deep concentration for hours. You need a good joystick.

Google “best flight stick” (or “best flight stick”) and the Cyborg F.L.Y.5 Flight Stick and Cyborg V.1 Flight Stick will pop up all over the flight forums because their are known for their sensitivity and maneuverability and, ultimately, their comfort. 

Let’s look at the Cyborg F.L.Y. 5 first. Worldwide it is the #1 seller for PC flight sims, Cyborg says. It works with ALL flight games and is fully customizable. Which makes the price of R740 a very good price for this award-winning 3D digital joystick.
