I was just wondering if there is an exact date for the release of the X52. If anybody has the stick already, could you post your thoughts on how its compares to the X45 and the top of the line CH stick.

I'm looking for a new stick and I like the fact the X52 has a twist rudder over the rocker (saves me getting pedals for a while).

I am curious as to why the Saitek joysticks don't employ force feedback?

In IL2 it is essential (for me) to know where the stall point is and makes firing at opponents a bit more engaging.

At the Blackpool show Saitek stated an october release, priced 100.

Some do (some, but not all, Cyborgs) - but not the X45, nor (I believe) the X52.

I'm afraid I've followed Bearcat - using my X45 as a button bay and throttle, with a (second hand) MS FFB Sidewinder.

Now, if Saitek could give us FFB on an X45 - or maybe X52 - that would be a serious contender for my next stick.
