Product information
A full-featured joystick and throttle combination, the Saitek X52 Pro Flight Control System includes sophisticated features such as an interactive MFD screen, which displays vital in-game information as well as allowing direct interaction.

Take control and fly away

The X52 Pro Flight Control System offers new metal parts and increased durability and toughness with more sensors and mechanisms to add even more reality. Joystick functions include a precision centring mechanism, non-contact technology on X and Y axes and constant spring force to reduce free play, improve control and increase durability. Not to mention a host of buttons, triggers, missile launchers and more! The throttle is equally full-featured, with dozens of features, controllers and abilities.

The X52 Pro Flight Control System ships with support for Microsoft Flight Simulator X but also comes with a software development kit which allows budding programmers to create interactions with their own favourite games.

For unparalleled realism and functionality you can't miss with the X52 Pro Flight Control System from Saitek.

Purchased to use with "Elite Dangerous", it is an excellent product; very well built with outstanding functionality.
It is expensive... ...but generally you get what you pay for.

The stick is very configurable. I'm using to play Elite Dangerous and I'm still finding ways I can configure the stick to make some of the functions in-game easier to use. The software generally makes it easy to do so
Some of the controls - only on the throttle though - can't be easily remapped in Elite: Dangerous and you have to use the Saitek Profile Editor. I'm thinking particularly of the ministick on the throttle that I want to use as POV in-cockpit. As of 2 weeks after buying it I can't work out what I need to do. Also be aware that the button labelled "i" by default is a "latch" button which means that once pressed it changes the function of other buttons or controls. To disable this so that in ED it can be used as "Boost" you need to have the Saitek control panel open before starting ED.
These are very minor gripes though and I thoroughly recommend the stick

Really responsive. Fluid motion. Comfortable.
Configuration can be a bit of a chore. Cables could have been arranged better.

Great flight stick with smooth movement.
It is big so if you have a small desk you will have issues.
