Looking for a compatable joystick...

  1. Well, after 5 years of use on XP, Windows 7 has made my Sidewinder pro 3D (SWP) stick unrecognizable and obsolete. Now I need a new one.

    I need some advice on a good joystick for Win7/FSX. I would like it to be similar to my old SWP stick:

    1. Must be USB.
    2. Must have a throttle similar to the SWP. (Large tab throttle, NOT a slider wheel)

    I was looking at the Thrustmaster 2960694 joystick as an alternative:

    Does anyone know what else is out there that is similar to my old SWP 3D?

    Thanks for your help.

    Scott
