I'm back flying simulators after 7 years of retirement (CFS1 and CFS2)
Last week I dug out of the closet my MSFF2 but nowdays is more common to have Hotas, pedals and the new kid of the block TrackIR.....anyway I'm planning to get a used Saitek X52 just for the Hotas....is possible to use Saitek X52 HOTAS whit my MSFF2 without problems???

Hello there, you will have no problems as long as you understand how to set up multiple controllers. Il-2 can have 4 controllers see mission4today web site. You wont regret buying TrackIR http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif

A lot of folks use just that setup, an MSFFB and the throttle from the X52 with the stick as a button bay.

If you fancy yourself as an electronics expert, you could take the pots out of the X-52 stick and mod the case to make more rotaries/sliders

Except for the fact that the X52 uses Hall sensors in the stick http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.
