definitely let us know how they hold up durability-wise. I'm interested in them myself.

I am using a pair of t16000s right now, I do like them, especially my right stick after I adjusted the spring. reachable buttons can be a pain, but I am using voice attack

It's a Samsung 55, got it awhile back and don't remember the model. Yes it was the first 4k TV that was released that could handle 60Hz. So I snapped it up because it really beats a 4 monitor configuration.

Hey! I had x55 and now x56. My x55 was faulty ('mouse' was not working right) and they replaced it with an x56 :slight_smile:. My ones are the saytek ones (which got purchased by xxxxxx and then by Logitech).

I have not use them much.

Overall, buttons feels decent, but not tough. The x55 stick, when changing form top to down, left to right, etc, was not smooth (or I had not trained enough with them). The throttler have problems in both x55 and x56. It is hard to move. It is a well known problem of this model: the grease used do not work very well until it is "warn up". While the grease is cold it is so hard it is easy that the throttler get displaced through the table instead. Montoya have not said anything about this so I guess his stick have a better grease or something, or maybe his throttler rubber pads have not enough dust to slide :slight_smile:. I had to fix the joystick with velcro to the table, hahaha.

The software is pretty powerful and you can assign keys, macros, etc to any button, including convert sticks into other type of controls, etc.

Another thing is that I find the stick buttons position a bit wrong. You have to move the hand too much to reach two of them and not in a comfortable way. Maybe my hand is small??? hahahaha. It could had a bunch of buttons together in the same place instead of what they have done with the stick.

I have heard as far as quality goes you can't beat CH products, just to bad their stuff is so out dated, if they could put that into an updated space sim package it would rock.

I guess I may look at that x56 after all then!

Ya I have not really been paying attention to logitech mostly Corsair stuff for the past few years, I like logitech though but a few years ago I also heard Saitek had quality issues on the older hotas setups and was the main reason I didn't spend 200$+ on their hotas's and went the cheaper route.

I have the 16000m stick and throttle setup although I find the setting up of all the buttons a bit of a headache, I need to get it out of the closet and dust it off again hehe.
since i'm only trying to get used to using a joystick for now i got lazy and googled a 16000m profile and found a link on reddit back to one on spectrum that i'm using for the time being
