    Sorry Dude, you are on the wrong forum. This General Support forum is (was?) for use by OK Daley and his race cars and race tracks. But it's been dead since Dec 2018. It's not for support of anything related to PC or Flight Sim hardware / software. FYI.

    As Chuck has pointed you would be better posting your Q in another suitable forum - I suggest the
    PC Hardware, Video And Audio Help forum - found HERE

    That said my personal choose is the Logitech 3D Pro - see HERE for info. I have been using it for many years in both FS9 (using Win 7) and FSX (initially Win7 and now Win 10).

    Although the specs say it only supports Win Vista\7\8 it runs fine on Win 10. I use it with a generic windows driver that Win 10 installed when I first connected the stick. I have had no trouble in assigning button functions for FSX and have never installed the bundled Logitech Gaming software - this software has pre-set profile settings for a number of games.

    However, specific Win 10 drivers are available if required - they will be required if you intend to use the Logitech Gaming software - and they can be found HERE - two links on the page - one for 64 bit OS and one for 32 bit OS.
    Regards

    For 'Plug-N-Play' (no 'driver' hassles) get a Microsoft Sidewinder Precision 2 (DO NOT get any 'Pro' or 'Force Feedback' stick). $25 to $39 on Ebay. It's made DIFFERENT than 'modern' joysticks with their (Chineese Manuf) faulty electronics, glitchy drivers, etc, etc. Not worth it. I brag about this stick and nobody listens. Somebody brags, brags, brags about some $199 joystick and everybody raves about it. Until it screws up and then you never hear from them again.

    I unplug mine every day to use USB port to load data and music files to USB Sticks. So it does not lose the button assignments, etc. I have used it everyday for 15 years and is still working perfect (and no hassles). Use my head.
