You may want to check the Saitek Site; I bought a re-furbished X-45 18months ago for about 1/2 retail and it has functioned perfectly. The rudder functions fine for taxiing as well as flight; you can also configure one of the hat switches for brakes and have differential braking if you like.

I created a different profile for each of my different payware aircraft to bring up different pop-up windows and other things.Great Stick.....I haven't regretted paying the $70 for it.
