Is the Mode switch on the Throttle?
Can the throttle operate alone or does it have to be pugged into the Joystick?

I cant remember if the usb cable goes to the throttle tho n then the stick plugs into the throttle or if the usb goes to the stick and then the throttle plugs into thta.

The lead comes from joystick to throttle, then out of joystick to usb so dont think they can be seperate

OK, that is opposite to X52 then. I just need a throttle and am not going to spend £120 on a CH one. My X52 throttle can be used on it's own but the mode switch is on the Joystick which mean I'd lose HOTAS when changing modes.

So I could use a second hand X45 and get back the HOTAS mode switch, but then I'd have to have the Joystick cluttering my desk :(.

Damn

Edit....perhaps I ought to do some DIY Joystick Moding. I wonder if I can move whole Mode Switch assembly over to Throttle...looks like a Xmas project :S

Sounds like the perfect excuse to buy a CH Throttle to me :D

"Now, now Dear - I just HAD to buy this, because the other one doesn't work like this one does!" :lol:
