For the price of 2 X52's you could get a CH Combatstick, pedals and a throttle. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/winky.gif

O.K., so you'd have to shop a bit and maybe settle for just a fighterstick and pedals for now (which IMO, is still more than enough functions with the 3 modes the FS offers), but you'd have better kit than anything Saitek can/will offer. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/touche.gif

There's a reason an X52 is so much cheaper. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif

If your looking at the Pro, it is an upgrade from the basic X52. The Pro has better centering, tension, and the issues with the X52 deadzone creep dont show up in the Pro.

As far as the CH/Saitek debate;

I have had both. Both are good setups, it boils down to preference.

Sticks;
Saitek has more buttons, and for someone with big hands, its a bit more comfortable. The CH stick has better tension and its bullet proof in terms of durability. Saitek has a twist option built in, in case you dont have pedals yet, no such option on the CH. CH is also much more expensive.

EITHER stick is a good buy. It comes down to feel and possibly price.

Software;
I find the Saitek profile software to be easier to use. CH software has more you can do with it, but is more complex. Saiteks latest offering in the programming department is pretty decent though.

Either one is a good solution, but for a whole package approach, CH has Saitek beat. The CH software lets you program all your devices in once place, which is VERY nice.

Throttle;
Saitek beats CH hands down here (IMO). The CH thottle is linear and ratchety , not arced. Saitek has a much better throw, and much better feel. The CH throttle is a good bit of kit, but most of the guys I know who have used both wind up liking the Saitek throttle.

Pedals;
Once again, both are good bits of kit. The CH pedals are damn near indestructible, the Saiteks havent been out that long yet, but mine have been holding up very well so far.

CH pedals are fairly compact, Saiteks are BIG and take up some floorspace. CH pedals are very close together, and IMO, uncomfortable, especially if your a bigger sized pilot or if you have big feet. The spread of the Saiteks is a LOT more comfortable, at least for me.

Once again, both are good, just comes down to what you like and can afford.
