We've flown Wings of Power with the Saitek X45 FCS. Personally, I've said many times this would be the ultimate setup if the stick base just didn't bind up.

I am very happy to see that the new X52 FCS is as smooth as silk. Another great feature of the X52 FCS are the three toggle switches on the front. These are centered switches that can be toggled up or down.

The X52 FCS with CHPro's Rudder Pedals is a fantastic setup. You can lock the twist in the stick for use with rudder pedals.

No, that is the 2D panel for the WoP P51D.

Where's the Tracker IR Scott?

I still say the Cougar HOTAS is the way to go, even tho expensive and not everyone can afford them. I've owned an X45, used an X52, and they don't compair to the Cougar at all. And will not last as long as the Cougar will, or stand up to the punishmeant the Cougar can take. Granted the X52 has a twist rudder in the joystick, but gameport rudder pedals are required with the Cougar HOTAS and work great. So good that I have 2 Cougars with rudder pedals. You never know when a copilot might come in handy someday. LOL

Yes I'm biased, so please forgive me. And most other Cougar owners will tell you the same thing. :wink:

Scott if you use the x52 with a set of rudderpedals. You can map the twist grip to pan right and left. this allows you to use the twist grip to look left and right in the VC. Not as good as track ir but it does work well.
