    I got this stick mainly for use with Elite Dangerous.

    I looked at several sticks including several more expensive HOTAS setups before choosing the Raptor Mach 2 which I’m using in conjunction with the Raptor Throttle control.

    This stick is just what I wanted, a fairly simple stick with plenty of buttons at a price I could afford with no convoluted software to install or flashy gimmicks and christmas lights .

    The stick has got a fairly hefty feel to it with a nice heavy metal base, and although the rest of it is made from lightweight plastic it feels robust enough.

    In use the stick feels accurate and responsive (enough for my needs anyway, some people might be more fussy but I didn’t notice any obvious issues). The buttons all feel nice and have a satisfying click to them, they are also nicely layed out – not too crowded and easily accessable, it might have been nice to just have one or two more on the actual stick itself as most of them are situated on the base, but it’s no big deal.

    The only slight niggle I really have is with the hat control as it’s situated in such a way that makes it a little awkward to press right.

    I’ve seen some people are having problems with the twist action rudder controls, try calibrating the stick in Windows it worked for me.

    At 50 this stick is a real bargain, it might not be the flashiest stick on the market but I’m more than happy with it.

    Questo RAPTOR Mach 2 non altro che una versione eccellente di joystick, o migliorata del COBRA V6 della FlashFire (la quale comunque consiglia di scaricarsi l’aggiornamento per migliorare la calibrazione degli assi)…
    Con la versione RAPTOR non c’ bisogno di software aggiuntivo: funziona bene sia con WarThunder che con MFS2020 e si pu settare a secondo dei gusti.
    Inoltre il design classico da caccia corrisponde quasi perfettamente alla barra di comando di molti aerei della Lutwaffe. Davvero un gran bel prodotto che potrebbe trasformarsi in un HOTAS con l’aggiunta complementare del comando motori, ma resta insuperrabile a questo prezzo rispetto ad altri produttori!

    Basta scegliere la versione migliore... del COBRA

    Golden Review Award: 3 From Our UsersControl feels much better then most other joystick ive used, strong build, more buttons, includes a pinky shift key and a mode button only let down is the fact that they only affect the buttons on the stick and hat, but all in all its alot better then the awful x56 stick. The hat can have three functions, 8 way directional or 4 buttons and another 4 buttons with shift and mode switched . The trigger and the top button can have 4 functions with the shift and mode switch. So the mode switch can be used like air to air/ air to ground toggle key. Only let down is the twist axis goes from zero to max with just a slight turn, needs rudder pedals to use instead.
