Spring Centering
When released, the joystick returns to center.

Friction Clutch
When released, the joystick does not mechanically return to center, maintains present position. Available only with Standard Resistive joysticks.

Center Detent
Additional force is required to move the joystick from the center position. Center detent is only available on single and dual axis Standard Resistive joysticks.

Torque Set
Friction is uniformly applied to the joystick's main pivot ball throughout the motion pattern. Absolute positioning allows the stick to be positioned anywhere in the motion pattern.

A variety of front mounting (FM) and rear mounting (RM) bezels are available for the Resistive joystick. Not every bezel is available for all configurations.
