A damn good throttle, but make sure to check the included extras.

Fantastic throttle, a smoother throw than anything I've touched before. Everything on this is perfect and premium. I only have 2 gripes, the TEC hat is really pointy if possible I recommend printing your own. I also like to use the z axis (thumbwheeel knob) to zoom and the hat it comes with isn't ideal for this, there is also a 3d printed alternative with a big knob on it that works great.

Other than that I'd recommend looking into mounts, if you want it to stay put you need to tension it quite a bit and it's liable to lift off your desk if you do so. It's manageable but something to consider.

The mini+ also only comes with one hat switch which some may find limiting. I really like this form factor but you should consider getting the hat accessories pack when you order it.

I love this thing and can't recommend it enough, my criticisms come from using it regularly and finding the smallest pain points for me.

Pretty solid

Got it because my friends told my I was crazy for playing without a throttle so I gave it a try and it makes flying so much more immersive and I don’t touch my keyboard anymore other than pressing escape and some mouse only menu’s. Solid build quality, don’t have to worry about it falling apart and very tactile buttons. Software easy to use when following tutorials and setup was quick. Support super fast to help me with a question I had. Only gripe is that the side encoder which I’m using for radar elevation is a bit tricky to reach without quickly adjusting hand. The flaps for the guarded buttons can get caught in my jumper sleeve but I don’t consider it as a gripe since the work around is just moving my arm a little higher. So yeah, def worth it. Would definitely recommend to friends, already have.

A brilliant product for a great price!

So far after 15-20 hours of flying DCS I have had absolutely no problems at all with the STECS, it has a great build quality, is robust and has enough buttons and thumbsticks to do whatever you want with. Works straight out of the box but can be fine tuned with a pretty in depth pc app to set up detents and what not. Overall a great product that I have actually already recommended to a mate that has more experience than me on flight simulators and he also loves it!
