CH Products for SF2?

Recommended Posts

How is the CH fighterstick and combat stick how do they compare in comparison...... I am having serious issues with my Cougar Stock its virtually impossible to do any precision flying and gunning.. I would love to get the WARTHOG but they dont have it here and i dont wanna get it from overseas shipping due to bad experiences..

 

 

I read that ppl are loving their CH products they're durable and strong and last for years even though their plastic. but how is the deadzone and precision aswell as center play any good any1 have anything bad to say about them?

how is the Pro Throttle? I wanna use these products for Lockon, Strike Fighters and JET THUNDER when it comes out. I cant handle the Stock Cougar anymore and i wanna get something else. I want the WARTHOG or CH Products.. I need precision tools....

 

An how difficult is it to create Mapped Profiles for CH or mapping buttons for SF2 or Lockon or Black Shark?

My Mate has the CH fighter stick, throttle and peddles and i'm left riddled with envy. Very accurate easy to use and assign buttons its all done thorugh SF2. At the moment I use the cheaper Thrustmaster hotas with a Trackir 5, but if it was my money it would be a Logitech G940 or CH products kit i've used both and they are both great with SF2, accurate not too stiff and easy to use. Not much between them in my opinion.

I have the CH pro package -fighter stick -throttle and rudders- they are a among the best purchases I have ever made. I bought them and track ir on the same day, the day I hooked it all up I was amazed, now it felt like I was flying!!! My old set up feels like a toy in comparison to my CH controllers. In my opinion if you are going to spend the money on pro controlers you should also get track ir....after you try it you will never be able to go back to looking around with a hat switch.

Awesome thanks for the reply guys so i take CH is the way to go if i was a doctor and needed precision tools to improve my craft CH is the way to do it....

 

 

 

 

I want TrackIR!!!!!!!! so badly I dont like using my HATS as a view instrument there are much better things i can do with my HATS... Only issue is I cant get TrackIR anywhere in my country :/ and I am hugely skeptical ordering anything online that requires shipping... As they never reached my doorstep or mailbox.

 

 

I am trying to make inquiries as to where I can get it where I based....

Where are you in the world? Try RC Simulations in the UK, they are a very trustworthy dealer. It will be fine if they use a worldwide courier like UPS etc.

I am based in South Africa..... The issue is not shippers from overseas its the couriers and mail service here in this country. They pick off ppls packages like xmas presents on xmas day even though their name isnt written FOR: or TO: .... I managed to find a couple of places where I live but they are incredibly expensive.. TrackIR 4 Pro and TrackIR 5 in the states at naturalpoint.com is $100 and $150.

 

Here in my country is TrackIR 5 $285!!!!!!!!!!! to $315!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! and I am really lost cause the consultant said which version am I looking for the standard or Pro? whats the difference I am looking at naturalpoint.com and I see it comes with a Black Track Clip and a Black Track Clip Pro with LED Lights. But the TrackIR5 Pro Bundle costs $400!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! How necessary is to have the Track Clip Pro with LED's? and just use a standard Black Track Clip. Can some1 enlighten before i make such an expensive purchase I dont wanna regret the slashing the cash.

 

 

Also whats the difference between the CH Fighterstick and CH Combatstick besides more buttons cause there is no Fightersticks available here in South Africa... are the 2 CH Sticks equally precise or is the Fighterstick slightly more accurate?

 

 

 

pls help!

The track clip pro is a complete waste of money.....TIR works just fine without it.

I use CH pedal and yoke for GA flying and CH pedal and a Saitek X52 pro for combat stuff. I have had the CH stuff for years and they are excellent, but I am very happy with my shiny new saitek hotas .......perhaps Saitek is available in South Africa?.........how about the Logitech G940 ? I think that dollar for dollar it gets you the most bang for your buck.

Just get the Trackir4 or Trackir5 in standard format, the clip that fits on a hat works perfectly fine. Are even the worldwide couriers such as DHL or UPS risky in South Africa?

 

Regarding the CH sticks, the only difference is the amount of hat switches and buttons. They are both equally accurate.

Awesome thanks guys will get the regular TrackIR then i see u have to wear a cap in order to use the Black Track Clip and the Pro u dont need to just clip to ur head phones.... silly honestly but hey.

 

I dont mind the Saitek X52 Pro an the Logitech G940 is damn expensive here i might aswell go and get the Warthog for that price seeming i dont need pedals as i already have CH Pedals.. So it was between CH or Saitek but speaking to a Saitek distributor and CH distributor i found the service with CH incredibly more helpful, the guy was literally going out of his way to make sure i was satisfied with all the needed info and service eg..... when he mentioned he didnt have the Fighterstick and Pro Throttle only the Combatstick so he gave me with full contact details to a full on aviation store relating to simulated and real aviation products, an then another store just for pc ware. Then he informed me to contact him if non of these places have the CH Products to place an order for a combat stick and then he will contact the US to get the throttle and will mail me all my products at literally a tiny fee. I was like woah! now thats service lolz!! I also prefer the CH products over saitek for 2 reasons. 1: the stick and throttle is pretty much identical to my HOTAS Cougar and i really love the design in my hands also that it reflects the design of an F22 and F16 Flightstick. 2: i read a ton of forums and posts in recent hours that CH is alot more reliable and life span on them are much better then the Saitek controller.

 

UPS in South Africa is abit risky I would avoid using them and DHL service is shocking if they try and deliver the package and no1 is home they leave and dont contact u what so ever. when i was getting my passport renewed due to an emergency and i had to use DHL they didnt bother to contact me, with the fact that there was no1 to collect it they sent it back to the British embassy which was in a different state having me miss out what i needed the passport for traveling and still charge me for the courier service here and BACK!!! to the embassy!!!! instead of phoning me and leaving at HQ in my state before they thought it was a good idea to send it back. the regular postal service is shocking i have lost hundreds of $ because of someones sticky fingers soon as the package reached SA. the only reliable courier is POSTNET but they arent affiliated with overseas deliveries..

I found a South African on SimHQ forums who bought the HOTAS Warthog from simw.com and said that they are fast and reliable! I would love to buy my CH Stick, Throttle and TrackIR5 Pro for $497 including shipping fees then buy it in South Africa for $750.... I hate to do it but i am willing to risk considering this other guy didnt have an issue..

 

Can any1 else vouch for this website? who has used them outside of Europe?

 

apologies dont mean to advertise... and double post the time duration for me to edit had expired.... :this:

That same thing as TrackIR for the cost of a webcam ($20), a hat, some LED's, some basic soldering knowledge, and a little patience. I used it for a couple years before I bought track IR. Works great.

aaahhhh crap i went to the computer to look at webcams ones that were recommended... and i checked the hardware store for the tool... its abit pricey it only saves me a few bucks from buying TrackIR 5 for $200 plus shipping from a site even though i am skeptical still looking around.

thanks for the info :)
