Best bet if you want to fly with the vast majority of people online is to buy two products:

1) IL2 Forgotten Battles Gold Pack (with Forgotten Battles and Ace Expansion pack)
2) Pacific Fighters (release date currently projected at early November)

Pacific Fighters will either install into the Gold Package or can install as a stand alone. Those of us who already own the previous products will probably install PF into them to retain all of the other aircraft and maps.

Get the GOLD pack and PF.. you wont be sorry. As far as that stick. Make sure you get a replacement plan if you get it retail and if you can afford it get a X45 instead of the evo. It is a bit more but you want a stick you can grow into. I know the tyhought of spending $160 on 2 games and a joystick may sound kind of like..... No way man!! (When I started simming in earnest in 2001 I bought a $14 joystick..... I just couldnt see spending more than that.... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/34.gif http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/53.gif.....now after the MSFFB,X45,CHPedals,TIR,FB,AEP,not to mention the upgrades to my rig.....I have to laugh at myself..) but what you want to do is try to maximize your bucks.... get the GOLD pack so you can then get the patches and be current in FB.. when PF comes out once you get that you will have access to an incredible plane set under what are arguably the best FMs and DMs in any WW2 simulator on the market today. Your return on investment will be waaaay more than you can even imagine at the moment.

Until you buy the game download the IL-2 demo and practice.
