    Joystick and Rudder Pedals Help

    Hi there,

    Im finding it hard to take a decision in what to buy. Im going to buy a joystick, throttle and rudder pedals but I would like to hear some opinions from you guys. The joysticks that Im in doubt are:

    -Thrustmaster HOTAS Cougar

    -Saitek X52 Pro Flight System (Stick and Throttle)

    -CH Fighterstick

    -CH Pro Throttle

    Im looking to buy the best but all of theses seem very good joysticks by the reviews I read. Should I buy a Thrustmaster HOTAS Cougar and apply a CH Pro Throttle to it? Or should I buy both CH products. Or is the Saitek stick and throttle the best? Im really in need of help of experienced users and owners on these joysticks.

    The other question I have is: Which rudder pedals should I buy?

    -Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals

    -CH Pro Pedals

    Do any of these work well with any joystick that I mensioned above? Which are the best? Ive noticed that all CH products mensioned are more expensive than the rest, but Is it worth it? Or are the others so good as CH but a bit more cheaper?

    I appreciate all comments and thank you for reading my topic,

    Cheers,

    Roger

      I dont have much experience of Thrustmaster, but if I had to choose between tha CH and Saitek controller I would go for the X52 as it both feels more substantial and has more features.

      Similarly in my opinion the Saitek Pro pedals both look and feel better than the CH pedals. The Saitek unit also has a friction a friction knob to adjust the weight of the pedals.

      Hope this helps

        Thank you very much for your reply Webmaster. From what Ive read in reviews, I agree totally with you. Although Ive never tried out any of the products I mentioned. Unfortunately, there arent any shops here in my hometown that have those products, so I have to follow in some sort of way what reviews and experienced users say.

        The only aspect that was making me want to go for Thrustmasters HOTAS Cougar is its aesthetics: F16. But Ive heard and read that it has a very heavy spring, which tires your arm after a while.

        Thank you, once again, for your help,

        Cheers,
