LAS VEGAS--At last year's show, Mad Catz treated us to a series of new controllers, but at CES 2010 we're getting a taste of the first force-sensing flight stick we've seen.

Due out in February, the Saitek Pro Flight X65F Control System is designed specifically to emulate aircraft controls found in modern military fighter jets. While most conventional flight sticks tilt with your movement, the X65F responds solely to pressure while remaining still.

Bundled in with the X65F is a CD loaded with preset control maps for some of the most popular flight simulation games out there. Of course, you can still customize the flight stick to your liking.

This rig is definitely among the most hard-core at the show, so the more casual flight simulator fans may be a bit intimidated by the sheer amount of buttons and knobs. And with a price tag of $400, the X65F surely isn't for the faint of heart.
