I have their F-22 though I don't use it, its too stiff and I'm not very confortable how it fits my hand. Its very similar to the F-16 but the base is more beefy. If its in decent condition it should last a very long time and the programability, like the F-22 has plenty of options. There is one big catch, unless you buy the aftermarket digital chip you'll have to use Win98. The chip is $59 and should allow you to convert to WinXP, it also makes accuracy dead on. If you can adjust to the rocker rudder switch on the X-45 I think it would be the best choice.

I'm not entirely clear on what you've got there.

Are you saying you have the orginal F-4/P51 style Thrustmaster stick and the F-16 TQS?

If so, I don't believe you can use the TQS with the original style stick.

If you have the F-16 FLCS stick, you can use the old FCS style throttle.

I'm using an F22 pro with digital upgrade, coupled with a f16 tqs and elite rudder. You can get a modified f22 on ebay for $40 and that would make a really good hotas if you wanna add pedals later. I had a logitech wingman before and they are different planets, really.
