Mad Catz Announces Cyborg F.L.Y 9 Flight Stick For Xbox 360

Mad Catz has announced the launch of its Wireless Flight Stick, the Cyborg F.L.Y 9 for Xbox 360, the first of its kind available on Microsoft's console. It'll feature Throttle and Twist Rudder controls for complete maneuverability and a unique base design featuring an integrated lap mount and removable feet allowing gamers the flexibility of playing at a desk or in front of the TV.

The Flight Stick will be compatible with the likes of Tom Clancy's HAWX and IL-2 Sturmovik: Birds of Prey. Darren Richardson, President and Chief Executive Officer of Mad Catz commented:
“The Cyborg F.L.Y. 9 continues the expansion of our new premium gaming line of Cyborg-branded products which we recently re-launched with the Cyborg R.A.T. range of pro-gaming mice. Building on key features, design sensibilities and the ergonomic adjustability made so popular with our Saitek-branded flight simulation products, we are able to deliver a unique and highly-realistic flight stick for console owners. This is a continuation of our strategy of developing products that evoke a passionate consumer response and enhance the game-playing experience.”
If you fancy one yourself, it'll cost you around $99.99 / £79.99 / €89.99 and is set to release this Spring.
