I want to trade my Ch product Pro Pedals and Pro throttle, both usb for an x52. links to pictures are lower on this thread.
Serial number of x52 has to be higher than 250100.

The Pro Pedals were bought new from Amazon on Feb 14, 2005. payed $98.99 plus shipping.

The Pro throttle was bought new from Amazon on March 18, 2005. payed $106.39 plus shipping.

Thats a good deal. I have decided to keep my fighterstick.

Interested parties can email me @ fire-80@mchsi.com

Suit yourself, I wouldn't do it if I were you. The X52 has some nice features, to be sure. Like rotaries and a slider on the throttle. But it no where nearly approaches the quality of the CH gear.

Also, you said you'd be keeping the fighterstick... does that mean you'll be using it along with the X52 throttle? If this is the case, how are you going to operate the rudder? Just curious.

You might want to keep your pedals, as they will work in conjunction with the X-52. You may end up regretting selling your pedals if you find that you don't like the twist stick for rudder use. Just my 2 cents.

What a coincedence.

I have ch pro pedals and I just bought the X52 not too long ago. I have retired my MSFFB2 JS for now and find the programable X52 to be just great. Don't sell the pedals though. CH pedals are great. I find mine run better with no CH software loaded. Just let Windows and IL2FB sort it out. No calibration probs or anything. I even programmed my X52 to get man landing gear up or down by holding a button for about 1.5 seconds instead of pumping the living bejeezus out of the key board.

The only thing that I have kept using of CH gear is the rudder peddels. I do not like the other stuff,and went to the Saitek just like you are doing.
I think you will like it better also. Many will say no, but when you get it you will see.
I have used both and I like the Saitek the best.

I will be useing the X52 by its self, for other games. I am semi retireing from flight sims. but if I decide to pop in a flight sim, Ill still have my fighter stick. hope this answers some of your questions. The gear work GREAT, but my time on the PC in the last few weeks went from 40 hours + a week to maybe 3(if Im lucky) spring hit and Business exploded, which is a good thing. So my offer still stands

If I had the money for a x52 I'd be on that deal so fast... But, alas, no money.

saitek feel like toys compare to more serious sticks.

I've just done the opposite. Got 1 X52, dead zone was ok, Y axis didn't respond so sent back. Got a 2nd one, X axis misaligned, no software in the box, no drivers on the website. Sent back.Not impressed. Both these sticks were ones not on the list of fauly serials. My vaguely educated opinion is Saitek make a good throttle for the X52 and some good sticks (Cyborg EVO's) but the X52 stick is a POS.

Ordered a CH Fighter stick and Pedals yesterday.

I've got a Saitek Rumble Force stick which I suppose is ok, but I am not sure about the twist rudder aspect. I find sometimes that I inadvertantly must twist the stick a little when I fire my weapons, causing my shots to go way off target (at least I hope it is that, I might need stronger glasses!).

My question is, would rudder pedals be a wise investment, and if so which brand? If perhaps I buy a CH stick as well (by the way, I am TOTALLY left handed!) could they both make my aim more accurate?

Of course, I am also painfully aware that my shooting might just be total c**p, although in general my flying suggests otherwise.

Maybe I should experiment with my MS FF Steering wheel pedals, if I can connect them up without the wheel!

Further to my last post, I just read another posting on this site that more or less answers my questions! So please ignore me!
