I'm a bit of a novice to Flight Simulators (but coming up to my PPL skill test soon) apart from having played around on FS 2000/2002 a bit. I'm getting a new computer soon, and will be getting FS 2004, and then connecting to the internet to do some flying with live ATC. But I need a control column and pedals and stuff first. Can anyone suggest a moderately priced: - Control Column (with PTT button) - Pedals - Headset for ATC Any help would be appreciated!

Probably the best value yoke/pedals would be the CH products stuff. Saitek are releasing a new set of pedals soon to. I've used CH stuff for years and find they're good value and the product support has been first class. Headsets vary hugely, £20-30 will get you a decent PC headset. Plantronics is a brand I've found very good. Bruce

Can I use driving-game pedals, or would I only be able to use Pilot ones? Also, what other companies make yokes apart from CH Products?
