yeah nnot out till later this year. have homemade set work pretty good but will be interesting to see the quality . icurrently use evo force for main stick in left, evo cybourg for throttle ,flapsetc in right and have saitek wheel aswell. hopefully they realise that were more concerned with quality as apposed to saving a few bucks. my wheel pedals are junk. well they actually work alright for racing but took apart,was going to convert to rudder pedals and was shocked at the cheapness of parts and design. modified a logitec stick instead into rudder pedals work exc. for about 4 months now

Interested to see what it'll look like. I'm betting it'll look futuristic with the trademark blue lights.

If they really want to make a fortune, they should be the first to make force-feedback rudder pedals.

That, and I'm desperately hoping the sucessor to the X-52 is FF.

I definitly agree...I have an X52 and its great, but it's not force feedback. My stick before this one was a Logitech Force 3d. I'm almost tempted to buy another one and use it with my X52 throttle because I miss it so much. With that force feedback there's no chance of stalling because you can fell when it's going to stall. So you can pull the hardest turn possible.. unlike a non-force feed back stick where you have to guess how hard you can pull the stick.

BUT... back on topic.. I've been looking at rudder pedals. I'm happy with my x52, so I'd have to look at their peddals when they come out.

But it would be great to see some not-fortune-worthy rudder pedals from Saitekhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Excellent.

Knowing Saitek they'll make my garage door open and close whenever I go left.

why not just use CH pedals?

I use CH pedals and the Saitek X45.. a good combo (though the stick is "sticky")

I'm guessing if Saitek wants to compete they'll want to make it aesthetically pleasing while at the same time maybe being a little cheaper.

I do agree, that CH is the way to go despite what Saitek or what anyone else comes out with.

forcefeedback !hmmmmm used alogiteck stick to make ny rudder pedals but have my saitek evo forcefeedback stick iam no longer using as had issues with rudder control. think ill modify it so's to have ffb rudder pedals. only need to use one axis which still works perfectly but perplexed as to designing pedals to feel the ffb
will ry with my current setup and let ya's know how it goes

I can't see Saitek eating into CH market share unless they decide to increase the durability and quality relative to their existing products and offering it at a slightly lower price.

I wouldn't want to save $20 USD for something that may only last 1/3 of the time...but that's just me.
