Just a light bulb idea. I was wishing I still had my flight stick to play IL-2 Sturmovik, and buying one that isn't a pos is expensive. I always wished to be able to play flight sims with mouse in cockpit view but I can't get used to mouse joystick, the one where you move a dot inside a circle to simulate the placement of the flight stick.

If a XIM ST could simulate near 1:1 movement in flight sims (leave us to worry about sensitivity and individual plane flight models; just need the mouse as joystick functionality)

This probably won't happen because the flight sim market is niche and this could be a big time investment (I wouldn't know) but it would be so cool.
