Just found this when browsing for some stuff, Saitek X45 going for less than 60 at pc world online, doesn't sound too bad at that price.

Sorry guys didn't see the 9.99 p&p until the checkout. Still 68.74 isn't bad

I think Simply (http://www.simply.co.uk/dealtime/77455/HN/simply_computers/index.htm) are the cheapest place, and it looks like they are doing free delivery for all of July http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif That means the price is 56.99.

So you bought one then!

Enjoy http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Using it on it's own or with other controllers?

Blimey, I think I'll see if my local PCWorld has them in stock. I'm seriously thinking about getting one atm.

Oh yes...

Had mine best part of a year now.

I use a MSFFB2 for pitch and roll, guns etc.
X45 throttle is great, the stick part is a button bay.

one of the best investments you can make. Made a huge difference to the way i fly! being able to have everything easily accesable and to hand makes all the differenc. I have one at home and its great, but i still have just a sidewinder at work and whenever I use it i miss my Saitek http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif but now they have come down, it might be time to get a second one http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yep B16, I was getting it for my brother, he has been using an old cyborg till now and I convinced him to get the X45. I'm still using my X36 had it for 4 years now and never had a problem with it. Don't think I could live without it now, Don't know how I used to play Janes USAF on a 2 button stick.
