About this deal

Overall, I wanted to give Saitek another chance after my old stick years ago, but now I wish I had gone with CH products. I've also just noticed that the list of available downloads is haphazard to say the least, and doesn't put the newest versions at the top as you'd expect. It's so hard to find the middle of travel with these dials that I've had to set up an overly large deadzone. Spring is SUPER loose, and I saw somewhere that it supposedly had a way to tighten the spring built in, but no. In addition, progressive throttle control with resistance adjustment improves the device's response.

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. Saitek makes great products that's why I bought this but they need to become fully MAC compatible and X plane compatible. Saitek did themselves, and some of us as armchair pilots, good with the addition to their lineup of the combat stick. Win 7 by itself does a great job of configuring the X52 Pro system as soon as you plug it into a usb port. Ocuk Limited trading as Overclockers UK is a credit broker, not a lender, and is Authorised and Regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority.I bought the Saitek X52 Pro primarily for use with Flight Sim X, but wanted the extra features in case I got involved with another simulator ( I use to love F117 Stealth Fighter ).

I am pretty sure I will encounter many more sources of bewilderment over the next few days, while I try to configure some sort of sense out of the thing. I think the programming guides could be written a little more clearer, there are some third party ones on web done better for us newbies, and software needs to be updated so more friendlier for windows v8. Saitek's X52 defines precise flight simulator operation, employing a multifunction LCD for easy access to an astounding 282 programmable commands.Multifunction LCD Display: Allows you to check all the programmed commands on your HOTAS before activating them. Have used the stick in Elite Dangerous for a little, but compared to my previous stick the movement is very smooth and accurate.

Realism in Lighting and In-Game Data Illuminated critical buttons on the stick and throttle let you know where to press when time is of the essence. Logitech X52 Pro allows precise flight simulation operations to be defined using the multi-function LCD screen that provides easy access to radio panel navigation in Microsoft Flight Simulator X. Intel, the Intel Logo, Intel Inside, Intel Core, and Core Inside are trademarks of Intel Corporation in the U. I would have given it 5 stars except for the fact that it does not support the Mac/ X-plane platform that I use.The main downside to them is they are fairly complicated to put together and set up, not recommended if you’re the type that just wants to take it out the box and plug it in. If you prefer more traditional control, a rudder lock switch disables the twist capabilities and confines input to the X and Y axes – ideal for use with Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals (sold separately). Credit subject to status, UK residents only, Box Limited acts as a broker and offers finance from PayPal Credit. But I have read that almost all X52 do this so this is… so hmm… I am not going to send it back because the next X52 would probably be completely the same. The absolute smoothness of the joystick and the buttery soft movement of the thruster changed the way I play flight simulators.

The system tray icon should now have a green backgound, and the MFD should say something new, depending on the profile. After that, ensure you have started both software, looking in the corner by the clock, you should have the controller logo there as i do (looking at image " Saitek unmarked. Hi Lil_hammer84, I have come back to using the X52 pro (for a couple of reasons) and am struggling to find the Logitch software. But yea, it shows as a mouse in windows so you have no hope of mapping it independentally from a mouse in the game.

Spent the day (yes, a whole day) customising the profile recommended above (don't need the Driving mode since I use a wheel for that, so I took the opportunity to use that third mode to give me a few more commands), and took it for a quick test drive in the training simulations.
