About this deal

Another thing that didn't work quite as intended is the stick rotation lock, once you pull out the lock you shouldn't be able to rotate the stick, but with little effort my stick rotates and feels as if something is about to give when I do so. Well with good YouTube videos I have studied the Airbus TCA with it´s hall sensors, the Saitek X52, X55 and X56 and the HOTAS Warthog, and it is obvious that all three of the Saitek joysticks are literally the same build internal and also have the same center spring in the middle of the joystick as bad and too stiff mechanical solution to center the stick. When moving the stick slightly to the left (only a few millimeters) the X axis makes full rudder movement. And to promote maximum comfort during long flights, the joystick's handle also features contours which harmonize with your digits. Three mode settings and a pinkie switch provide enhanced programming options for even more control for all 7 axes, 3 HATs, mouse micro stick and 19 programmable buttons, with programmable tri-state LED color for each button.

I also tried out the X52 from a friend and would say it’s similar to the older X36 but has more functions.

Some people (mostly those that play fast paced space sims) don’t like that much dampening but it’s great for flying planes.I setup a Digital Storm Vanquish level 4 machine in my bedroom due to arthritis in my knees at age 56 makes it difficult to make the trip up and down the basements stairs to the old i7 950 oc'ed to 3. Where you can spend 200-300 bucks on a device and it still behave like some non-quality controlled garbage. This is going to make high-G planets a no-go as I just can't see enough vertical thrust control being available to get me down safely.

My last gripe is with the handle adjustment, which allows you to adjust the handle guard on the stick to accommodate different hand widths. Featuring an upgraded multifunction LCD which shows in-game data in real time, a progressive throttle with tension adjustment, plus an adjustable joystick with a self-centering mechanism. I donwloaded the Software as recommended by Logitech and this seemd to do nothing other than reboot my PC.With a total of 282 controls for 3 modes, you can adjust the axis control, reprogram the keys, and even change the lighting of the tricolor LED keys.

I need a hyper-precise throttle quadrant to especially fly the CRJ700 which has no auto-thrust, and therefore N1 must be able to be set to the number. So I would give the X-52 HOTAS Professional a 7/10 and I would recommend it because it feels absolutely great when flying. Reddit and its partners use cookies and similar technologies to provide you with a better experience. I am not too fond of the PS-2 plugs that tie the throttle and the Stick together, but so far so good,.I've set the Logitech software AND the Saitek profile loader to "run as administrator" via the compatibility tab on the properties' page of those respective. The throttle lever itself has a little bit too much resistance even with the Force screw fully loosen, but it still feels great and never before was I able to control the airspeed so precise and easygoing. Fortunately, there are plug-ins available created by gamers that allow this product to be used with my platform and give it a pretty good amount of its designed functionality. You shouldn't need any special software for the device unless you're using the profile feature or want to add curves to your axis'. No need to fret over their software unless you like spending a lot of time trying to get it all to work.

Illuminated critical buttons on the stick and throttle let you know where to press when time is of the essence.If you're in the market for a good joystick, go ahead and spend the extra money if you have it and get the X-52 Pro. The red blue pink LED whatsitmajig does something with profiles, but never figured out how to make use of it. In addition, progressive throttle control with resistance adjustment improves the device's response. This mechanism was so clunky and badly designed that I felt as if I was doing something wrong by attempting to adjust it. I though maybe it is related to the driver, but when I tried to install driver, it didn't even detected my joystick.
