I use a Saitek X-55 Rhino (now updated to the X-56 as 2_islands has posted). When I was selecting a joystick (primarily for Elite Dangerous), I quickly narrowed my preferences down to the Thrustmaster Warthog or the Saitek Rhino. In the end the choice was easy, the Saitek was a clear winner because it had a twist (Z-axis) for rudder control. The Warthog would have required additional expenditure on pedals which, for a space sim, are not required.
I’ve had the X-55 about 18 months now and still loving it!
Hope this helps.
