a bit old here but I too am looking for a joystick as I am hoping to replay the old Mechwarrior games.
From what I've read - the Logitech sticks are generally of poor quality (Extreme and Force 3D), with both calibration and dead spot issues.
I've been trying to find
Saitek Cyborg X Flight Stick With Dual Throttle
but not found any instock in Canada. So with that.. I'm still looking
I'll take a peek for that Thrustmaster and see if I can find it available here
