I don’t always use my Microsoft Sidewinder Force Feedback, but when I do, I build silly things. maxstick is script that uses the awesome pyglet library to pass joystick input to MAXScript, so we can use it to drive or animate things. The example script drives the currently selected object in a way that it behaves roughly like a plane would in a flight simulation. You can play around with the repository, usage instructions are in the readme: https://bitbucket.org/cb109/maxstick

Here is a video showing some great viewport flight maneuvers (using free models from turbosquid):
