Just noticed this at the CH web site:

http://www.chproducts.com/retail/index.html

Looks like price will be in the $200-$250 range.

I've never used any of their products, but I'm thinking of buying the Pro Throttle USB and the Rudder Pedals. Anyone have any opinions on either of these?

hope the final build will look better than that preproduction one, it looks about the quality of an atari joystick/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif Im sure it will be cool when its out though

I just bought the USB rudder pedals today (haven't had a chance to try them out yet!) but I didn't find any complaints about them while researching my decision-

They're kind of expensive imo, but well-built.

I fly with a MS FF2 stick (twist grip) but I've been wanting to get rudder pedals for realism.

If you have any specific questions about the pedals I should be able to answer them tonight or tomorrow /i/smilies/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

CH USB pedals are worth the money.

The throttle seems expensive compared to the X45 throttle/stick combo. The X45 is a great throttle.

I have the whole CH HOTAS setup and it can't be beat. As fars as smoothness and quality of construction CH is way ahead of the pack. Very few people switch from CH products. They are expensive, but they don't wear out quickly like most other joysticks.

You smug-faced crowds with kindling eye
Who cheer when soldier lads march by,
Sneak home and pray you'll never know
The hell where youth and laughter go.

It's interesting but I already have a MSFFB2 and a CH Pro throttle USB.

Can't see me needing any more buttons for combat sims but maybe if I owned FS2004...
