X52 PRO FLIGHT SYSTEM

The most fully integrated Stick and throttle flight controller: built to meet the demands of the best virtual pilots in the world!

The MFD screen, first introduced on the X52 Flight Controller, is now interactive. Now you can display important in-game information such as the Radio Stack and interact with your games directly. Shipping with support for Microsoft's Flight Simulator X, there's also a Software Development Kit (SDK) included which allows budding programmers to create interactions with their own favourite games. See what's been created already on our forum.

New metal parts increase durability and the unique dual-spring mechanism provides a progressive spring force on the stick's movement, making it more resistant the further you move it from centre. The X52 Pro uses the same magnetic hall sensor, non-contact technology as the X52 but we've doubled the number of sensors to improve response. The smooth movement and enhanced control give you unparalleled accuracy and bring you even closer to reality.

Fantastic joystick, bought for playing on FSX, Vista 64-bit drivers are easily found but they exist as betas and do work.

Unfortunatly mine had the classic saitek lights out problem, which meant every few minutes it would go mad and behave as if you were moving the joystick in all axis pressing all buttons.

But the quality of the thing is suberb barring that one problem it feels solid.

Id deffinatley go for this over the standard X52 which is all plastic and of much lower quality.

I bought this joystick too use on Battlefield 2 as others I have tried were a bit dodgy.

What a fantastic piece of kit.

Excellent response to commands and a pleasure to use.

A bit expensive, but well worth it.

This is an brillent joystick and was a wonder to use after an upgrade from the Microsofts Sidewinder Forcefeed back.

The installtion is easy to go through But it is more recommend to use the drivers of the Saitek home page as the ones i got with the included disk where corupted and got BSOD's after pressing the trigger.

But over all it will improve game playing and makes it more fun as it does on IL2

This Joystick is great for FS2004 or FSX. The manual to X52 PRO is very short but anyway is easy in use. With X52 PRO you will get Saitek SST Programming Software where we can to programme every buttons to any games. Is worth to buy and build quality is excellent.
I recommend to every one who like fly!

I bought what I thought was the 2nd best joystick on the market. Unfortunately it 'sticks' so much that it's more like a gearstick than a joystick. Drove me nuts within a minute and I'm returning it. On the plus side the install was smooth! It's a shame though as it looks the business. At best, Saitek quality control is suspect. I'll give it 2/5 as most likely mine was defective rather than a terrible product. But they shouldn't be letting duds out of the factory and now I have the massive inconvenience of return/postage of a large box and chasing my refund. Not impressed.

PS: I just saw the other guy's review... "Build quality is exellent" ... Not always!
