I started playing the Beta yesterday, and I can tell you the answer is No. At least in the Beta, no flight stick or joystick controls. In fact, if you try and use your joystick (I have a Logitech Extreme 3D Pro I use in Battlefield 1 all the time) it totally sucks. I returned the preorder/game for this reason. Maybe if they add it later I will give it a second chance.
