I've been looking for a PC joystick lately and seems like pickings are slim these days. Anyone have any suggestions?

I currently have a logitech attack 3 which is good except for not having a twist handle for rudder control. Thats the main thing I am looking for. I just use the joystick for flight sims (primarily fsx). I'm also just a casual flight sim player so I don't need anything extravagant.

I wore out two logitechs over the years. Haven't played in ages. Sigh.
I have a Logitech Attack 3 as well.
Really like the Saitek Aviator (dual Throttle), about $40. (on my christmas list)
Had a Thrustmaster many years ago. I think there is an updated version.
There's a Saitek/MadCatz Cyborg(?) VERY adjustable joystick, haven't used it.
There are two versions of the Saitek Flight Control System out there, pro($120) and non-pro ($85).
CH Products are usually excellent, if you want to pay.
Thats all I can think of.

Since CompUSA (stores) went bye bye, everything seems to have dryed up in choices. I've picked up a few from craigslist over the years.
