I had the Wingman FF and it was great for two years.

Then I replaced it with the MSS2FF and WOW!!!!!! what a difference.

There is no comparison in the number and variety of forces.

Sidewinder rocks!
Make sure you got the new one with the red buttons ( new processor, etc. )

Holy crap!
Great deal.

I got mine with a rebate from Staples and it was still $50 US.

You will love the MS.
I loved my logitech but the MS blows it away!

You will ove your MSFFB it is a GREAT stick!!! Too bad ythey are discontinuing them. I will get my backup soon cause i really dont lookforward to the day when I will have to fly without one. Hopefully that wont be for a while...my first one is still going strong. If you can down the line get a Saitek X45 and use it in FB WITH the MS stick and you will open up a whole new world of simming to yourself.

I Have a Logitech wingman strike force 3D and love it. I have purchased a backup. They can be found for about $20 bucks, NEW, on EBay...instead of the original Retail store price of $79.(Logitech no longer produces/retails this stick)

Anything Logitech seems to break down with excessive game play after a year and few months. (seems that rudder breaks first) We should know, we run a private game server at home with 5 flight stations for MS FS Pro and IL2.

When we replaced Logitech with MS products (incl MS Sidewinder2 force feedback) they are still working today, and they can take more of a beating. If MS products are a little more expensive, purchase anyway! Not worth replacing Logitech equipement over and over again.

My point of view, just trying to get you to save $$$.

Besides, MS sticks seem more accurate and seemed better tuned than Logi's sticks
