I know the X-36 is an old stick but this is a new USB version.... for $59... it looks like the X-52 will be going for $129..(FUGGHEDDABOUDIT AFAIC) and the X-45 will remain the same. I thought for sure they would lower the price of the X-45. Look for the X-45s to go on sale when the X-52 goes retail.

Maybe for 40$ I`d say "the heck with it" and buy it even if I would have serious trouble with looking around but 60$ I consider a ripoff.

X36 with a twist stick - none of that fancy dancy xmas tree lights setup on the X52.

If only... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif

If its UB then get an X36 and a twist stick of your choice. I use a MSFFB & X45.. Im sure an X36 USB would work fine with a twist stick.

FYI: X36 is same as X45 with only cosmetic differences and a different centering setup.

I bought one for dad and its a good stick. The centering is better, imho.

I'd recomend it over the X45 because its cheaper.

From what I've read about the 52 it's not a significant impprovement over the 45...just a lot of bells and whistles. $130 eh? I'll wait for the X-66 to come out, then get the 52 http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

too bad all the bells and whistles are not meant to encourage previous owners to come back.
only bring in new customers who dont know any better...

if SAITEK sold a "H-D" X-45 with higher grade durability, soldering,components, craftsmanship for the price of an X-52, id be interested..but no, they had a comfortable stick, and never fixed the quality issues...which sux. if they fixed the issues, wed have a nice winner.

I was really hoping that the x-45 would go down in price after the x-52 was released. All I want is the throttle. Im not even sure once I get the throttle that I will like having a seperate throttle(with my msff2). Wish I could just try it for a while. I have a feeling Im going to spend 68 bucks or so for the x-45 and have it in the closet.
