I have a Microsoft Sidewinder Pro jostick; it has an x and y axis, not hatswitch, and a throttle lever. If I get trackIR or an equivalent, and a set of pedals for a rudder, do I NEED a new stick? How worth it is a full HOTAS (trim sliders and criticality?)

ok i'm a new guy but I think the less you have to look at the keyboard the better. you will most likey want to add a throttle. and if you do that then a new stick is just a step away. my thoughts are plan your growth. that way you will not be buying 3 of everything before your done.
