      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.

      HOTAS flight control brought for Elite Dangerous. Excellent build quality, responsive with a lot of hats, toggles, buttons, switches and sliders. With the app download you can add up to three mode configurations which includes the ability to record macros and have them assigned to a single button click.
      A popular stick with a lot of YouTube content to help with the configuration.
      Windows 10 automatically recognises the stick, but I would recommend visiting the Logitech website to download the standalone app for full customisation and user experience.
      Main thumb button on the throttle is set to choke by default. Took a bit of digging around forums to work out what it's for an more importantly how to disable it.

      Lots of buttons.
      Small mouse joystick on throttle is erratic causing main mouse cursor on desktop to random jump and move about even with setting dead zone as large as possible, had to disable it in device manager (appears as hid mouse) which made me not able to utilise the two mouse buttons on throttle.

      Bought this for Elite Dangerous and it feels like it was made for it. Plenty of buttons, study, precise and responsive.
      A little on the light side so you may want to use the included suckers to attach to desk.

      Lots of buttons for extra features
      Soft plastic build
      Quality buttons
      Non-slip on surfaces
      Amazing sensitivity
      When stick idle it pushes forward a tiny bit
      Would've been nice to see extra buttons than a screen.
      Quite difficult to program the Screen
      Long connecting wires, gets in the way alot

      I’ve given 10 for everything because it’s unfair to mark down a product due to the questions being irrelevant. The stick and throttle are slick and precise though a bit light for some tastes. I had a t16000m before and while that felt more solid it also broke fairly quickly and wasn’t as precise in it’s feedback. This setup is more responsive and immersive
      Doesn’t have as many secondary controls as other sticks in the same budget but it’s a small niggle
