Is this combination good for IL2 and pacific fighters?
Microsoft force-feedback 2 and CH product USB throttle.
yes but not off ebay I've had bad experiences with ebay I'm buying one exactly like it but a lot better its got a performance screen here it is
Is Saitek better and more durable than CH product?
yes i think so
Wow ... IL2 and Pacific Fighters. I learned how to fly on those two. I'll never forget the thrill of actually controlling an airplane on IL2. I just wanted to fly around the countryside without getting shot down. I'd low fly the rivers and I was in heaven. Then I learned how to use the guns and started to blow up bridges and buildings. What a trip! Never got to much into dogfighting.
Then I decided to try Microsoft FS. The difference in flight dynamics got me hooked. It was so much more real. And I didn't have to get shot down.
Anyway I got a Saitek X-52 and the experience was consumate. Beautful joystick. But I decided to go CH and got the yoke and pro pedals. Now I think I have the ultimate setup. CH rules.
