I would have also suggested the stick I have (as a rather casual simmer) and that I like a lot : the Thrustmaster T1600m Hotas & Throttle that Jarhead mentioned.
But back then I paid less than $125 and right now I find them listed at $250 (https://www.amazon.com/ThrustMaster-2960778-Thrustmaster-T16000M-HOTAS/dp/B01KCHPRXA?ref_=ast_sto_dp) or even no longer available ($500 for the full package with the rudder  !!! https://www.amazon.com/Thrustmaster-T16000M-FCS-Flight-Pack/dp/B01N2PE8CZ?ref_=ast_sto_dp)


Wow, I didn't realize they were that expensive!  I've had just the stick for years now (bought for 40/$50), and casually recommend it in discussions like this as the best cheap option.

Apparently, COVID lock-downs have stretched the global supply of toilet paper, paper towels, hand sanitizer and HOTAS systems.

Well I know which one I'm be panic-buying - it begins with "h" (and doesn't end in "and sanitizer")

Wanted to update the group I ended up going with a VKB Gunfighter Space Combat edition (with the Kosmosima grip) and the T-Rudders for now.

I'll get use to this and probably look to pick up the VKB (if they ever release it) or the Virpil throttle to complete the set.

Insert witty comment here.

Little late on this, but here is a pic of the Gunfighter (please excuse the messy desk, this thing comes with a ton of optional bells and whistles)
