I have exactly that set-up (+ a CH Combat Stick as an extra 'button bay'). The force feedback is great and the throttle does it's job, with plenty of buttons including a 'shift' button opton.

It's a perfect combination and you'll love it. Bid away!

Would you be able to send me button configuration?
How much is this offer worth approx?

If the FFB joystick is in good shape I would use the Buy It Now option. I paid $60 for my MS FFB 2 joystick brand new, but you can't get them anymore.

That's definitely the best combo.

It's the best joystick ever made. The buttons will wear out. There are ways to fix them though.

I would say buy it now. It looks like the latest revision. There is no power cord in that picture for the FFB2 which is a concern.

Me, I paid $160 for a spare new in box FFB2 a couple years back. If you fly you got to have the best stick, not some light peice with a spring.

You. Will. Get. It.

This is THE best joystick I've ever had. (The X52 is a HOTAS, so techincally it's not a joystick http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/53.gif) Not once has it broken down on it, and the only reason I stopped using it was because I didn't want my fragile little desk to fly to pieces (seriously, this thing is like made of balsa wood...), and because it was far too big for it. (I've grown quite attached to my little Precision 2 in the past few years)

Even if they're making **** games, Microsoft has made some very durable sticks. Combine it with a throttle, and you're set. That's what I plan on doing as soon as I acquire a a sturdier table.
