MSFS Which control system?

Hey Pilots, 
I pick up my new computer system today and its fit for MSFS which I have already purchased.  I'm wondering what the best flight control system would be.  Especially one that would work out of the box.  Logitech seems to have a good one but I would be interested in hearing what others are using.  Money isn't really a problem.  Would appreciate any input :)   Thanks all!

I use the Logitech Saitek flight controls.  I've used them for quite a few years, but have had some issues in recent past.  The rudder pedals stopped working and I replaced them with the Thrustmaster pedals.  I haven't checked the Internet reviews to see what is considered the best to have currently, but that would be my suggestion - to check the Internet reviews.  The Saitek was good, but I think with regular use the wear-and-tear can wear them out after a while.  This might be true with any of them though.  Both the Saitek and the ThrustMaster worked out of the box for me, but the Saitek radio panel required a 3rd party addon to work with MSFS.  I would check to be sure they're compatible with MSFS.  Perhaps there's updated software for the Saitek stuff that will allow all the addons to work out of the box.  I'll have to check because I don't often bother to power up the addon and so my Saitek radio panel is often left dark and I just use the virtual cockpit to adjust radio and switch settings.  If I can get them to work without a external app I would probably use the radio panel more often.  The yoke and pedals worked without additional software.

Have you checked: Turtle Beach Velocity-0ne yoke? I believe they are specifically made for MSFS. I was thinking of purchasing that brand, but
I fix the issues I had with my old CH yoke...about 15 years old or more,
and they work just fine for me.
