Between Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 and Star Wars: Squadrons, flight sticks have become exponentially more relevant and appealing in the past few months, so it's no surprise that they're among the hottest Amazon Prime Day deals

However, for the same reasons, coupled with distribution and production snags caused by the coronavirus pandemic, flight sticks can also be mighty hard to find right now. On top of that, flight sticks have proven to be quite sparse in Amazon's Prime Day lineup itself, but there are also deals to be had at competing retailers looking to capitalize on the spike in online shopping. 

We've taken all of this into account and trawled the fields of deals to find the best flight stick options available right now. Some of these flight stick deals are available at limited-time discounts, and some of them are equally valuable deals simply because they're now available at all after previously disappearing from stores.
