i have the same stick, make sure you download the latest drivers because i had the same problem. the feeling for stalls is quite weak and it takes a little getting used to.

Already had downloaded the driver from the site. Does the game support the force feedback / rumble?

Go to the Il-2 control panel and go to "input". Flip the switch there to enable FF.

The game does support Force Feedback.

Make sure you have the force feedback switch enabled in setup (IL2Setup.exe or PFSetup.exe in your game folder).

If you have more than one controller installed and your Saitek is not Windows ID#1, you may need to do an edit in conf.ini to get FFB to work. Look for the line:


in the [rts_joystick] section of conf.ini and change it to FF1=1 for Windows ID#2 controller, FF2=1 for Windows ID#3, etc...

I have the same stick and I concur... FFB does indeed work with FB/AEP/PF!

As was said above, follow those steps and you should be OK.

You're in for a treat when you get it working. The feedback through this stick is great. Parked on the runway and the stick will not centre initially. After taking off, you will feel the aircraft vibrating until you raise the gear and the flaps and with air flowing over the control surfaces the pressure will centre the stick when released (makes sense).
The stick will start to vibrate then shake if you turn too hard and are approaching a stall, so you'll know to back off.
Get bounced and you will know about it when the stick judders violently as you get hit (if you have the gain settings at 100%).

You really get to 'feel' the aircraft through the stick. Different aircraft seem to have different levels of tension on the stick, which reveals characteristics about aircraft that you wouldn't know about with a non-FFB stick.

Sorry if I'm telling you what you already know, but this is my first FFB stick and I like to talk about it http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif
