Best flight controls?
What flight controls should I purchase to play Take On Helicopters? What controls do you guys use? Also what's the best way to go about getting that headset thing that follows your head movement in game?

The problem is that TOH is a light-weight sim that works best with high-end hardware. You could spend a few hundred dollars just for this game. But if money is no object:

1) A decent HOTAS joysick, which includes at least a throttle control. The x52 is okay, but heavy use will wreck the potentiometers in a year, it's not designed to last. At the same price point, I prefer the Thrustmaster HOTAS, but it's junky compared to flight sticks that cost $500 and up.

2) Rudder pedals. I like the Saetek pedals, although they are fragile and not completely comfortable. But considering that the next step up in quality is maybe $200-$400 more expensive, Saetek is okay. If you don't have pedals, at least get a joystick with a twist rudder function. It's not great, but you need the rudders to operate the rear rotor if you want to ever steer or compensate for wind. Otherwise, you end up mashing the autohover key.

3) TrackIR. There are other headtrackers, even freeware stuff that uses an XBOX sensor, but TrackIR is the best of the best. There's no point whatsoever in buying a flight sim/flying game that does not support TrackIR, and if you play the flight sims, a TrackIR is must-own hardware. Very easy to set up and use.
