    Very well for me and the GF (She figured out the main buttons quickly, and doesn't like reaching for the touchscreen either). My dealership and valets are always entertaining to watch when they first see it/ use it because I have added a tilt to be able to shift gears. Started on a valet mode but never finished it cause I don't valet that often. Took some major mods to the car to install (actually hacked off shifter 2" above base) - Created custom stalk, springs, and shift lever to position stick for comfortable use while driving; had to destroy joystick base and install electronics beneath gear shift cover; and wires had to be extended.

    What's interesting about the CH FighterStick is it actually has three sets or modes, of which I only use one, so there's lots of room for expansion. Between Joy2Mouse and RR's Keytable.ini, I can control anything and everything. Joy2Mouse also autoswitched configurations based on the window in focus. So I've created config files for RR, FireFox, IE, AIM, Outlook, as well as games,etc. and Joy2Mouse takes care of changing the button codes.

    My only complaint is the buttons have a super light touch as compared to the real thing in the F-15, so I have to think first to lightly move the hats and buttons. I have bumped into it a few times (mostly pausing the music) and thought the PC had locked up - I freaked out, even rebooted once and then realized what I had done.

    My Eldorado has a Logitech Extreme (looks more elegant for the luxury car) that doesn't have nearly the complexity of the FighterStick, but just as comfortable to use. And Joy2Mouse automatically recognizes which joystick is connected and loads the appropriate profile at startup.
