Anyone know of a stick/rudder/throttle combo thats around 100-150 bucks or less that's reliable and won't break in 6 months?

Or maybe a good hardware site that has all of the above for a reasonable price?

The Saitek is good...The MSFFB is good..the CH pedals are good... If you go here you can get a FFB HOTAS setup with pedals for almost $200.... cant beat it.

Saitek X45 is a great bargin for its price, but its all plastic (And noticably cheap on the buttons) will not give it a long life. I use one but have already had to place a strip of wax paper between the base plate and ring to keep it from sticking.

Also to slacked the sticks incredible tension you can use zip ties to hold two 'rings' of the spring together.

Thats the combo I use Bearcat.

Very good even though it is a bit strange to have an unused joystick!

Shame Saitek don't do an X45 with FFB (or not if their quality is questionable).

ENK you can use the Saitek stick...I use mine for gear (manual raise ,lower & auto,tailwheel lock on hat 1) lights (cockpit, nav,landing tip, smoke) on hat 2,drop tanks an button a, auto pilot on button b, bailout on the red fire button, engine start on the red trigger button in front. I have my flaps on the rudder rocker, map, quick record ahd radiator on the D button, Trims on the pots, rudder trim on the twist handle of the MS stick. More stuff too but you get the picture.
