I've just got my grubby little hands on amicrosoft forcefeedback 2 and I'll tell ya man, I love it. I was skeptical at first. I did not see how a stick that would jump around on its own accord could be helpful yet alone useful. First of all, the stick makes it easier to avoid stalls and such and secondly it really puts you in the game. I also feel that it allows me to fly a little better (although I still officialy suck) I am no longer constantly over correcting like I did with my old spring based stick. IMHO go for it. You wont be dissapointed.

I! I have a MS FFB Pro. Old school stick, that I use with a X45 throttle. In my mind it doesn't get much better than that.

S! What does the X45 throttle do for you that the joystick's throttle does not? Forgive my ignorance on the subject but I'm currently searching for imput devices that do well for this simulation.

The X45s throttle lets you keep both handsbusy...it also.
lets you put command son the sticks instead of usint the keyboard.....

I use a nostromo speed pad n52 and a saitek cyborg 3d rumblestick FFB, both together for under 90 bucks US.

I like the FFB, been using it for about 4 months now. I think for a beginner FFB is probably pretty good to learn the edge of a stall, but I barely notice it myself, too busy playing the game.

Not that it matters, but I notice turbulence a lot more when flying low, the stick will start vibrating on it's own...kinda cool, never would have seen it without FFB.

MS FFB2 sure helps with flying when you can feel something such as pre-spin or other bumps that occur while on the edge of the envelope. It helps me to correct my mistakes and have more stability.
Shooting is also a nice feel when your a/c shakes. the machinegun button is under your index finger and cannon button is under the thumb. It's a nice setup on the stick top with the hat switch and buttons 3 and 4 for rockets or bombs. I use buttons 5-8 on the pad (for use with left hand) for different views (outside, cockpit, gunsight, and toggle for FB Viewplus).
I'm very comfortable with everything now.

80% of all German casualties in WW2 were on the Eastern Front.
I need to make my pic smaller before i can post it.
