Simstick
Is there anything new about the latest Simstick other than that it comes with a receiver? I think I want one of these things. Any feedback?

I bought this one to use in the living room on the bigscreen, works great

Keep in mind while using the simstick the TX is actually transmitting so battery life will not be a good before you need to recharge. The "For Sim use only" Rx that they are selling you could get a actual orange Rx from hobby king for a few bucks cheaper also .

You can use an extention lead, but then you still have a lead?
The idea of simstick is to get rid of the lead not add another one I've been using one for over a year now and I would not go back to having the wire in the way all the time.

Hi Terrabit,

There is nothing different about the Simstick that comes bundled with a receiver. It's purely a deal that the guys at Simstick did to reduce the cost to the end user to get the device working :-)

Like Harry I have been using one ever since they were available. I have found it reiable and one of those device that just simply 'works'.

The benefits I see are this:-

Obviously you don't need the lead connected to the computer whilst simming. Althought this seems not such a big deal, it wears the lead out quickly if you sim a lot. (by this I mean the wiring, not the plug :-)) The other benifit is the' no wires' syndrome. It leaves your PC area neat and tidy :-) That cheers the wife up !!!

It's really worth giving one of these ago. You won't be disappointed :-)

Agree with mattie-lodge.
It just works. I leave mine plugged in on the back of the computer and sim away from the living room TV.

I got it because of my twin babies now todlers would pull on the cable all the time.

I have never had any issues with it, and the reciever I bought it used on RR for a great price.
