    I have one too - in my cupboard!

    I bought it for the FFB which i thought was great but the actual stick was very uncomfortable, it wouldn't be properly centred when PC/game loaded up and there was another niggle which i forget.

    I now use my Microsoft Sidewinder Preciscion 2 (which i had in my cupboard hehe) and the difference is profound.

    When my MS goes i'll probably invest in a CH Combat stick or something - i wouldn't buy another Saitek stick. But as someone pointed out they ARE (Saitek Evos) ambidextrous should you be a left-hander...

    I like mine. The only problem I have with it is that the twisty stick rudder sometimes sends signals as though it is locked full right. A few twists to the left and right clears it, but it can be annoying in combat or formation flying. For the first couple of days I didn't realise I had the problem and tried to compensate with trim.

    That was it! That was the other 'niggle' - i had the exact same problem and it was very annoying. Sometimes the 'few twists to the left' weren't enough and i would have to leave IL2 and do it in the Saitek hardware manager thingy.

    NOT what you want when you've spent £50 hard-earned

    I agree, the full rudder thing is annoying, and you've inspired me to do a bit of searching. I found this http://www.saitekforum.com/showthread.php?t=12890 on the saitek forums, which seems to describe the problem, I'll give it a go tonight and loet you know how I get on.

    Didn't work I deleted the registry entries it suggested, went straight into a QMB mission and started with full rudder right. Had to do the left-right twist to clear it. I guess the only sensible thing to do is disable the twist and fork out £100 for a set of rudder pedals!

    Twist ur rudder left and right and move the stick in all directions prior to take-off, and ur ready to fly that mission. On the next mission you should not have to do that again. Ive always had this problem even with my old logitech. But its no big deal to me just do it once, takes 2 secs to fix and im gone.

    That's pretty much what I do, Polak5, but as Schwarz.13 says, it's annoying to fork out for a stick and not have it work properly...anyway, how else do I persuade my wife that I need to spend £100 on rudder pedals
