Be interesting to try FMS, but I don';t like to fly with a mouse or keyboard. Any ideas?

Any Windows controller that looks like a dual-joystick will work just fine. I'm using a $20 Saitek P880 USB. Works great!

Cool,
I discovered that the G2 does work too. Just had to change some channel allocations. Now I just have to figure out where the flaps and gear switches went

Just got FMS up and running with a simblaster joystick cable and a Hitec Prism.

Lots of fun; much better than the kb.

Yup, FMS transmitter setup is great, & I got my G2 USB xmitter to work fine... for both airplanes & helicopters...
