Even after years of not flying, it just took posting a single thread a few weeks ago (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/23110283/m/5001023728) to get the wheels rolling again.

Take a look at what came in the mail today, courtesy of Wabinaki, for the incredible price of $0 plus shipping (which he also paid half for, despite my continued requests for his paypal address and amount due!):

I still think I owe Wabinaki, and the community something.

So, here's the best I can do right now. I have an old MS Sidewinder ForceFeedback Pro stick, which is being replaced by this ffb2 since the old ffb pro is gameport only and as you can see I'm on a laptop now.

It's free to anyone who wants it, and still has a PC with gameport and running windows XP on it. You'll have troubles getting it to work on Vista since they dropped gameport support after XP.

Very cool man. This community does rock. I have been the recipient of such kind gestures also.

Pay it forward, can't go wrong.

Hi rsm there is a dedicated "pay it forward" thread in the off topic section, might be good to post your kind offer there as well mate.
