There was a brand new one on Ebay for 50 a couple of months back with a buy it now price!! I had no access to any cash and had to let it go http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif What I wouldn't have done for 50 at that moment.

Typically they go between 60-100 in the UK s/hand.

People have caught on to it though and if you look lots are advertising non FF Microsoft sticks now calling them FF2's, it's sad because people are obvioulsy buying em... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/51.gif

I wish somebody would come out with a really good, sturdy, HOTAS FFB.

I've contemplated buying a FFB2 to graft it together with an X45, but I'm not sure how I'd go about it.

Ouch. I got mine a couple of years ago from ebay for under 20 pounds.

Yeah, I still have a soft spot for my old Pro. It may have been gameport and distinctly right-hand only - but it had a terrific response and a build-quality several notches above the FF2, imo. Not to mention more programmability as well.

Withdrawing gameport & software support when XP arrived was one of M$' cheesier moves.

I was thinking of something more ambitious, Bearcat--more like retrofitting the FF parts to move the X45 stick itself. Or perhaps grafting the X45 stick onto the FFB2 column.

What I'm after is the X45 stick's two hats and top buttons, plus forward button and pickle button, on the column of an FFB2.

In all reality, Saitek is probably just going to make an optical, FFB HOTAS before I get off my butt and frankenstein one. Theirs will probably work better, too.

I practically gave my last 2 MSFFB joysticks away to good homes. While the MS sticks were the best FFB sticks available, CH is waaaaay better IMO (and we all know about opinions).

What I'd like to see is BLACK CROSS * RED STAR Vol. 1 for less than $200 http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif
