I know I have an older flight stick, Microsoft forcfeedback 2, but are they going to put the compatibility in the controls area at some point?
I take it you have enabled force feedback via XP Force? If not, go and get it. You will be so glad that you kept this vintage stick.
If you search this forum there are several threads detailing how to get the old Microsoft Sidewinder series joysticks working with FS2020. Mine is non force feedback but it sounds like with XP Force you will get FF as well.
Good luck and Happy New Year!
