I have never had a problem with the rudder or any other part of my X45. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

I'm with tenmike here, I use the dame set up and couldnt be happier. A twisty rudder is much better than that crappy rocker on the X-45.

Rocker rudder is superior to the twist stick in my opinion both for accuracy of movement and the fact that it doesn't interfere with your pitch and roll ability. Add to that it's ergonomically more comfortable.

Tip to use is to reverse the throttle movement in the HOTAS settings so that 100% is with the handle to the low stop. The rudder is easier to use at the bottom of it's throw and most time is spent flying with the throttle in that position.

I love rocker rudder on my X45. It's much more convenient then twist rudders. And more realistic also, though pedals is the better solution.

I use the rocker but use it for my zoom in and zoom out. Use Pedals for rudder.
