Which joystick? Still trying to use this Best Buy credit and they have the evo and x45. Which would you go for? I might just buy the evo to use until I can get the x52, then take it back within 15-30 days. I read it's a pretty decent stick.

Wait for the X52 and save yourself the trouble.

I just got the EVO and am extremely happy with it. Good deal for the price.

Only if you can afford the rudder pedals and throttle to go with it, Zen - which is about a $450 total investment.

Id say let the type of rudder config you want to use decide. If you plan to get a set of pedals in the future then save the money and get an X45 and put the balance that you would have spent on the X52 towards pedals. If you prefer a twisty stick solution then go with the X52.

Overall the X52 is a good buy. Mine has a couple of bugs, but nothing that can't be fixed.

I'm with bearcat, get the 45 or 52. Your choice should depend on whether you'd rather the rocker rudder on the '45 or the twist rudder on the '52.

Read My thread and you will get the X52. Remember that Rome was not built in a day. Get the X52 then you may add Pedals or ever TIR as the addiction gets worse lol.

The X-45 is a first rate stick. I don't have any experience with the X-52 to but it appears to be nothing more than an X-45 with a slightly different configuration and an LCD screen. What that screen is for, I don't have a clue. Unless the X-45 and X-52 are with in $20 of eachother, then I recommend saving the money and going with the X-45. The Evo is also a good stick but it is more basic and hence cheaper. I suggest staying away from CH unless you have a huge checking account. To get a setup similer to what an X-45 has, you would have to buy about $400 of stuff from CH. And even then you will have less capability. CH's only selling point is that their stuff never breaks or wears out.
