I pretty love my setup with the Logitech G920 + G13 keyboard.

Pretty easy to setup and enough key for everything. The best thing about the G13 is you can map all your key, shortcut, key combination, etc on it and it makes front loader, crane etc pretty easy to use.

I second the G920, or G29 as they're essentially the same. And I can confirm it works great with the side panel as well.

I think its the best all round wheel in its price range.

Apparently the thrustmaster TS 300 is not as easy to clamp to a desk and is slightly dearer (plus supposedly better ffb which doesn't count for this, and I've seen people say better build quality but couldn't speak for that).

And the reviews of the saitek wheel speak for themselves.

Hope that helps a bit.

I have the G920 also ... which works fine for FS17 except the lack of support for force feedback.
There is a gear stick as an extra option for this wheel which is really nice to have, not only for "gears" (I use it for cruise ctrl and some implement ctrl).

Compatibility should not be an issue across the controllers as long as the game has support for them.

Buy a used Logitech Driving Force GT, looks just like the G29/G920 and comes with a built in seuentiql shifter. You can get one for 50-75.00$ if you shop around. No clutch pedal though.

I use a Logitech Driving Force GT + Logitech G13 keyboard + Logitech 3D extreme joystick and Edtracker for Head tracking. Graphics card is Nvidia GTX 1070, I use this with a 55 inch Toshiba monitor.

Its an awesome setup.

From my own experiences you have to remap every axis and button on your wheel in order to use it. It's a major pain, but playing with a wheel is a far better experience.

Actually ... from my experience FS19 maps buttons "like crazy" (wish it did not).
Setting up the buttons yourself is half the fun ... ;)

I assume you have this setting covered?

Someone else had the same issue with another controller ...
