I'm switching to XP and I guess my old MsFF1 sticks are now hand me downs due to lack of drivers.

I can't afford a Cougar and get the the other pieces at the same time so I'm going to need to make some tuff choices. I need a stick, throttle, and pedals that will work with XP and I might die without FF(never understood how folks can fly without the xtra immersion factor but thats just me). Please suggest models and problems I should know about.

Take a look at this (http://www.ch-hangar.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=27) thread where other CH users have recommended retialers they've used.

Living in San Diego (just 20 miles down the road from CH headquarters), I found the best price locally for the Combatstick ($89.00)and Pro Pedals ($109.00)was at Marv Golden Sales, near Montgomery Field. Frys' had the best price for the Pro Throttle ($99.00). This was about 18 months ago.

Shop around. You might find what you're looking for locally (and not have to pay shipping).

No... I use CHUSB pedals in FB and they work great. I wouldnt try to use a set of racing wheel pedals.

Why would you think that? Of course you want USB on all your peripherals.

If you want FF. You better not look at CH, because they don't make any.
