    All I can say is, I don't remember anything special about the feel of the real deal, I'd be happy with just an authentic looking one on top of any random joystick. Any word on the Routech ones? Any good? Do you have any pictures? 500 euro is kinda pricey, might as well get the complete setup from FDS for that much but yer was just wondering. Pdpo, where did you see the price tag of 260 euro for them?

    Build your own. You might base it on load cells from Elane ELANE - Load Cell rather than the LVDTs used in the real SSC. The race car sim crowd has used the Elane products for pedal force sensing.

    You best source of information for force activated versus motion activated flight controls will likely be one the people over at the ViperPits site.
