I am after a USB force feed back stick,with pedals and throttle.
It seems that throttles are not suppoted as a seperate item?
Also,there seems to be a lack of programability in the force feed back sticks(not as many buttons?).
SO,lets just say that if you happened to be a EAW fan and want realism/imersion,and need to get to the important controls fast(like flaps..),is there a way around this problem?

Would it be possible to add a Saitek Pc PAD for other controls ,and at the same time use the USB hotas?

What I am after,is:
Force feed back stick,
seperate Throttle,
seperate Rudders,
and finaly a touch pad system for various controls....(Am I asking to much Lord?)

Any recomendations/advice would be greatly apreciated.

Slapphead, I would suggest that you look at the CH Force FX. I am under the impression that it will work with the CH Throttle, although I am not at all certain because I don't own one. I couldn't tell you about the PC pads, though - sorry, I don't own one. Just keep in mind that the Quickshot Masterpilot apparently won't download to any new Pentium computers, although I again can't confirm this. Anyway, good luck with your search!

Have you ever consider one step further? ie add a headmount display (HMD) unit so that you can look to any direction and get a view of that direction. (no more disorienting pad lick view and fumbling with the numeric keypad)I have thought about that for a while and had done a little research. So far I have not found anything. No body seem to thing that is a workable idea. I guess the biggest obstacle is the HMD is too expensive. Another problem is to have the software support the HMD. Anyone out there has any input?
