I would personally go for the X52 I've owned 2 of them over the years and have never been disappointed with them. They run great with or without the accompanying software and they are HOTAS capable

If you are happy with your stick, maybe you can keep using it. According to their website, it looks like Thrustmaster will sell the TWCS Throttle as a separate item. However, they don't say if it will

happen anytime soon and there's no price yet, but I think it will not be too expensive.

Well I went with the Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS HOTAS. I found out its a pain getting other HOTAS to work with the older X-Wing games so the fact i can just unplug the throttle and still have a full stick made the choice a bit easier. I'm also loving the HOTAS setup in strike fighter and DCS!
