I feel so lucky...

I was looking to upgrade my Logitech Wingman Extreme 3D with something from Saitech. Their yoke is nice, but I like to fly choppers to. So I decided it would be the X52 system and their pro pedals.I was lamenting the fact I would have to save so much more when I clicked on "reconditioned items". I got the Pro Pedals for 80 bucks!!! The joystick wasn't quite as good a deal, it was only marked down to 109 from 169; but I was so happy about the pedals I went for it. Both, with shipping cost 200 bucks...UPS, Fleet don't fail me now!!!Best Regards, Donald T. :-waveFLYing? It's cool. Trillions of birds and insects can't be wrong.

Very cool. For about 80% of the electronics I buy I go the same route.

When I asked for the same in their 'search' box it came up with 'not found'?

Many times they are as is, and the reason they are sold reconditioned, is they were originally returned by someone else, probably because of a mechanical problem with it, so in the end you may just be buying someone else's problem. Make sure you can return it if it doesn't work first!!
