I want to buy a new stick to replace my old x45. Aviator and X52Pro, which one should I choose?
I need advice!

The X52Pro is said to be worse in quality actually than the normal one.

I personally have an X52 and I'm very happy with it!

I got an Aviator and I like it.It´s sufficent for me.Nice array of buttons in a little space.Dual throttle,ah,dosen´t wwork in this sim though but the second one is a "trim on a slider" http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gifThree modes:Off,a and b,or as I have it Off:normal combat and all the stuff that needed for it.A as in Airfield mode,landing and takeoff controls and B as in Bombing mode,all those buttons for it.Nothing new for an HOTAS dude I guess. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Thanks for your reply.
So, how about the accuracy and the spring of Aviator. Actually, the spring of x45 is too hard for me. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
X52 pro is too expensive... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/compsmash.gif

I broke my x45 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blush.gif and have currently
gone back to using an older version of the
Cyborg saitek. I found this really good for
a "budget" stick. May be worth a try http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Accuarcy is about the same as my previous joystick,the EVO if not even better (could be my new stick setting though http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif)and the stiffnes is about the same but I use one of those self clinching cable straps and bind two of the springs togheter and then getting a little bit lighter spring tension.

If you want a non-FFB stick CH can't be beat. If you want Force Feedback stick I would reccomend Saitek Evo Force.

So do you mean the spring of Aviator is so hard that you should use self clinching cable to reduce the spring tension?
I do the same thing on my X45. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif, Frankly, it is one reason that I want to replace my x45.
