Thank you "Herra Tohtori". I appriciate taking the time.
I looked over again for an hour or so, and I found other person's opinion, that those "heavy" sticks are not that good for space sims, that do use a different physics (sci-fi) rather than earth's sims. Makes sense. Also the warthog is simulating a real stick of an actual plane.
Second, since I will not be ever using the set for a combat sims, but only space sims, and mostly older ones (if I have some "urge"), it is a bit of an overkill to buy a set like that. The only thing that draws me to a more professional set is a accuracy and longevity, which unfortunetly goes hand in hand with the number of buttons
The combination of 2 devices, which you pointed out, is also an issue which I found out. Even if I combine 2, still many, many buttons will not be used, which is also a waste in this case.
These reasons tone down my enthusiasm for those most expensive sets.
Now I have a couple of questions for you:
If you get a CH Fighterstick, you'll need to also invest in rudder pedals.
Why is that if I may ask?
Saitek X65F does have twist-stick control for the third axis so you wouldn't necessarily need rudder pedals, but the stick itself has a few quirks in that it's a force-sensing device - the stick itself moves only very little, and the sensors are reading the force you're applying to the stick rather than the deflected movement of the stick from center point. For some it is good, for some not so much.
Indeed. I think I will opt to pick a more conservative approach which is a typical stick.
The single CH Fighterstick would be perfect, if it didn't only have those "diagonal issues". I don't want to feel any difference of feeling whenever I roam with my stick, and I can see why some people are irritated by it. It's even more so the case with space sims where I can imagine the full range of the stick is used a lot more often and more intense.
The Saitek X52Pro would be the "biggest" set I would think about. However it also has a lot of buttons, and it also has a separate throttle (won't it also be a problem with 2 devices vs 1 device?). If it IS seen as 1 device, and I can use it with older games without any problem, then it deffinetly looks great, ad pretty "sci fi" with all the leds. So that is deffinetly what I am thinking about.
The 2 other that I looked about and are recomennded the most, from the "cheaper models" are Saitek Aviator, and Logitech Extreme 3D Pro.
Anybody using Saitek X52Pro in space sims, that could share his expierience?
Good post. The CH set is price-y, but it's also worth every penny you spend on it.
Any thoughts Dragon, about this diagonal movement on CH sticks?
