X52 PC Flight Controller System
|Manufacturer Warranty:||None||Country/Region of Manufacture:||China|
|Manufacturer Color:||Silver||Custom Bundle:||No|
|If you're looking to add precision and excitement to your gaming experience, consider the Saitek Pro Flight X52 Flight System controller. This device, which consists of a joystick and a throttle, can enhance any PC flight simulator. It's easy to grip and command, and it comes with powerful programming software. There is the upgraded multifunction LCD, which gives players access to in-game data as it's happening. The joystick is easy to adjust, and it can be calibrated to the player's specifications. It also has a dual-spring self-centering mechanism. Also, resistance increases as the stick moves farther from the center, and non-contact technology gives gamers greater accuracy. Control is also enhanced by the 3D twist with rudder lock. This mechanism can be used to disable the twist capabilities, giving users a more traditional simulation experience. This flight control system is designed to easily conform to the user's hands. This is thanks to the advanced grip adjustment system, which adjusts to any hand size. The tension adjustment dial allows users to alter the throttle's resistance levels, thereby changing the nature of flights. The Multifunction Display feature gives gamers access to essential radio stack functions. With the help of downloadable programs, users can even create their own Multifunction Display interactions. When this control is used with a PC, users have access to powerful programming software. This device is compatible with most flight simulation software, most notably Prepar3D 2.2, X-Plane 10, and FSX - Flight Simulator X. It can also be used with combat simulation and space simulation programs such as Rise of Flight, Take on Helicopters, Star Citizen, World of Warplanes, and War Thunder. The Saitek X52 Pro comes with the pro-stick unit, the pro-throttle unit, and two compatible USB connector cables. These perform best when used with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, or 10 on computers with at least two USB ports.|

Upgraded to X52 Pro's
After 9 hard-used yrs. with X-52's, it was time to replace my controllers. I purchased the "Pro's" and after just a small learning curve am glad I did. They are rugged and durable and if they last half as long as the old ones, I'm happy. The only function which the "PRO's" don't do well with and the "X52" do, is the decrease throttle setting in FSX. This is the way to reverse thrust on jets upon landing. I can't figure-out any other way to do it and the "PRO's" only partially and inadvertently accomplish this function. It may very well be the WIN10 operating system to blame, but the old ones worked much better even on WIN10.

Ideal for Elite Star Citizens
Bought this to practice my flying in the Elite Dangerous Alpha. Smooth controls, all buttons work, knobs respond. The blue lights are a nice touch. Grip is comfortable on the stick. Thruster unit has a nice smooth back and forth motion. The 6 DOF is awesome. Roll is a tad too sensitive when flying in Planetside 2 though. Stick overcompensates. It is probably not an Saitek issue but how SOE support HOTAS in the end. I have only been using it for a few hours but it already gives me better control than my Logitech Extreme 3D Pro. I'd give it 5 stars if the stick didn't give so easily when trying to stay steady on targets. With Star Citizen's first iteration of the Dogfight Module coming up and Elite Dangerous's First Round BETA in a few weeks, I will give the X52 a full workout. I haven't tried it on any non-space flying sims yet. I bought mine used as a stopgap until the newer HOTAS' come down in prce. It's a really good stopgap.
Great for an old stick.
Despite the age of this product line, it remains the mainstay of combat flight simulation HID. After Saitek got bought up by Madcatz, quality dropped off by a fair but, but used? If you grab one in need of minimal modification for less than $80 you're doing great. Some individuals have difficulty with the factory software and others have problems with stick sensitivity and deadzones. You can buy or make a spring tensioner for the stick to make it feel just right. II prefer heavier stick response but others will doubtlessly find the factory configuration just fine. This stick does great for DCS and Elite: Dangerous. I have not tried it with Star Citizen yet but I imagine it's the same story. I can now play with no assistance from the keyboard or mouse.

Would NOT recommend regular X-52, but definitely WOULD recommend Pro.
I've used both the X-52 and X-52 Pro, side-by-side. This may resemble the X-52 Pro, but that's where the similarities end. This stick and throttle is essentially a "by cheapest means possible" design in order to sell to a growing number of HOTAS users. Not only that, the price difference between this and the X-52 Pro is nowhere near enough to justify buying the regular X-52. The plastic is cheaper, and used absolutely everywhere. The feel of the stick is cheap, something I scoffed at when I read reviews saying the same. They were right. On top of that, you only get one weak spring on the stick (X-52 Pro has two, one inner, one outer), meaning that it will be flopping around all over the place after not much use. Inevitably you'll be setting your deadzones higher and higher and higher. Another big reason for this is the cheap sensors used. The Pro has much higher quality hall sensors, and it shows. In the short time I've owned the X-52, I had the yaw freak out on me to the point of becoming unusable. Next was the "Fire D" button on the throttle. It started by needing more and more pressure to activate until it finally just quit. Shortly after that, the hat switches, though still functional, started to lose their positive actuation (no feel). From the get go, I suffered from the all-too-common no-zero throttle. I ended up, like so many others, having to decrease the throttle travel by about 30% in order to finally get it to actually hit 0. Legos have a sturdier, and more firm feel than the toggles on the base of the stick. They're terrible. Just to add, for those looking for a HOTAS, the X-52 Pro has been wonderful. Even after tripping over the cord, yanking it off of the inner PCB, and resoldering, the Pro is still going strong. Most of the time I don't have to set a deadzone at all. The precision is amazing and the springs on the stick are adequate for re-centering the stick after over a year of frequent use. The touch surfaces are mostly rubberized, lending to a quality feel in combination with the metal toggles, rotarys, and POV1 hat. Positioning of the buttons is actually a bit more spaced out on the Pro, and rightfully so. Buyer beware...you're MUCH better off saving up a couple more 20's and getting the X-52 Pro instead. Would NOT recommend the X-52 (silver), but definitely WOULD recommend the X-52 Pro (black).
Takes some getting used to
I have been playing flight/space sim games for a while, but I am not an expert. This is my first HOTAS device and I love it. I have several of the Saitek controlers and have always found them to be great. In fact this HOTAS is probably capable of a lot more than I am. Hard-core flight sim folks may still opt for the top dollar options, but this is plenty for the casual flight around the universe.
