I'm learning to glide, and since i'm not going to get much done over the holidays - trips are in term time with the university club - i reckon that getting a flight simulator and the peripherals would be a good idea. The only really approved simulator for gliding is a program called Condor - which is fine (it's cheaper than buying FSX or X-Plane).
My current joystick is a joke, it's an old cheapo PC Line one - and i think getting a new stick is in order! I was thinking getting something like the Saitek Cyborg Evo but ideally it needs to have force feedback for accuracy's sake. Bear in mind this is gliding i'm doing, so the throttle is going to be my airbrakes and i'm not bothered about millions of hat switches and extra buttons - no autopilot here!
Secondly i need to get some rudder pedals. Is there a way i can do this cheaply? I can use a stick that twists, but that would be useless for flying practice!
