How does it feel? Do you think it is really better than the x45 and if so, why?

I use an X45.... the X52 would have been perfect if they had just kept the rudder rocker and added the twist handle as well. That rudder rocker makes a great 3 way switch.

At the moment I must use the rocker as my rudder until I get some CH (probably) pedals. At that time my rocker will be free. What, may I ask, do you use the rocker for. (I understand you use your MSFFB twist for a rudder).

Thanks in advance.

I use it for increase and decrease mix (by 20% increments). Quite handy when flying manual mix planes.

I know what you mean, Bearcat. If I can think of a way to reorganise my desk space and so on so I actually have somewhere to put a separate throttle I might be tempted to get an X45. I have pedals for rudder but the rocker looks like it could have all sorts of useful functions assigned to it in all sorts of sims.

I run an X-45 + Ch pedals combo, I use the rudder rocker for comms and Cycle gunner positions ( I fly bombers of some type 80% of the time).
