My Joystick just gave away, and am trying to figure out what to buy now. I was thinking Saitek X 45, but I dont think i want this stick without pedals, as I have only heard bad things about that "rudder thingy" on the throttle. Now CH Pedals USB is a bit too expensive for me, but I might get a decent price on the old set up (http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B00004TOYT/qid=1079280387/sr=-7/ref=sr__7_etk-pc/002-8775790-5723254?v=glance&s=electronics&n=541966) for decent sum of money.

So does this setup work together and is the old CH pedals any good?

BE VERY CAREFUL! CH gameport products are NOT compatible with Windows XP. I have been using a full battery of CH flight controllers for about 4 years, and I love them. However, I have to run two operating systems in order to get them to work in XP. I'm not sure if the rudder pedals would cause problems, because it's probably just a gameport slider, but you may experience problems with them in XP. Research the compatibility before you buy them.

I got to relativate TD_Klondike's post.

CH-Gameport-HOTAS works very fine with XP. I'm using my old CH's for 6 years, now, and I'm still very pleased with the stick. The only big problem, and I *guess* that was, what TD_Klondike was refering to: You cannot program CH-Gameport-HOTAS under XP.
But since CH stores the layout inside the stick, this is no problem. Simply map the game controlls to the stored keys and there you go.

For Pedals this is obviously not neccessary and there should be no prob using them at all. There's simply nothing to map http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

CH provide gameport analogue drivers for Windows XP here (http://www.chproducts.com/retail/tech_chanlg.htm) they don't support Force Feedback or the ability to program the sticks in Windows XP but 'BLAZERBRUCE' has released a Win XP boot disk that allows the programming of the gameport CH sticks using the old DOS software. You can find out more about his program here (http://www.ch-hangar.com/forum/index.php?showtopic=286).
