+1 for the t flight Hotas.  I have a warthog, but still use the t flight hotas for elite dangerous.  I like the way you can sit the throttle and stick in your lap and for £30-£40 is is really good value for money.

Get a T-Flight X HOTAS, it's an excellent stick and is as cheap as chips. Then you can spend the £40 you save on a game or two. EVE Valkyrie is currently half price in the Oculus Store.

Another suggestion is the 

Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS Controller

 https://www.amazon.com/Thrustmaster-T-16000M-FCS-HOTAS-Controller/dp/B01KCHPRXA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&q...

It is a very good stick as well.  uses the same sensors as the warthog.  Best stick for the price.  Just my 2cents

I agree with whosinaname as this hotas replaced an old expensive X52 and I know now the T16000M hotas is far better than the X52 and I really like it, recognized by Elite out-of-the-box). It seems in your budget according currency. I had some hard time configurating it for Eve I bought yesterday, but that's the game fault as you have to bind yourself all commands for it. Great Hotas in any case.

Mainly about the precision: the X52 lose center easily, you had to add dead zone often or re-plug it hoping this time it will stay steady. I had quickly Fire #2 having a problem, and I had to open it nearly each month to clean contacts inside. With the X52 in the Configuration window you can't keep a still position, let's say 30 degrees, as the cross is shaking. The T16000M is far more stable and really more precise. It have  something like 16384 precision steps thanks to the same hardware than the warthog where the x52 is far less (256 or 1024 can't remember) and you feel it immediately. And one important part : drivers are nightmare with the X52 and Windows 10, and USB 3.0 port are not its friend. The Thrustmaster is plug and play. I agree the X52 have more buttons due to the rotation selector and the Shift little button, but that's don't justify the difference when playing. After this I bought the Thrustmaster pedals too for fly sim, perfect, and cheap. At least that's my point of view after using both for long.
