Best Intro Joystick - star citizen & flight combat

I need some help with a decision. I recently got the star citizen alpha and I wanted to start practicing on a basic joystick. I will also start playing some flight sims I have put off for a long time. I want something that will last for a year and if I am still playing a lot of flight sims then I will get a hotas later.

I am currently looking at the logitech extreme 3d pro and the saitek cyborg v1... Also the thrustmaster t.flight X... but is the almost double price tag worth it?

Anyway, I really hope someone out there has some personal experience and can help me make a decision! thanks!
