CHProducts flight sim yoke usb(le) and I have the saitek X45 joystick and throttle combination. I use the throttle all the time and the stick for CFSII. Both are exceptional in my mind.

I went from the Thrustmaster (no FF) to the CH USB Yoke & USB Pro Rudder pedals, and I've feel I've made the biggest leap in adding to the realism of FSimming so far. :-) I got the 3-lever yoke so I wouldn't have to fiddle with the Function keys when adjusting my mixture and prop RPM. It sets you back some moneywise, but it's worth it if you're really into FS.

Depends on what kind of airplane you are flying. Flying a Cub with a yoke is almost a crime :). Zipping low level with a Tornado or Strike Eagle just doesn't have the same satisfaction using something that came out of my Skyhawk. Now, flying a light aircraft with the yoke is much easier.
I used the CH Flight Sim Yoke USB. I had the original Yoke they made and the spring tension in the later yokes is much more realistic.
I have a very old Thrustmaster Joystick that works great for the odd times that I dust it off.
