Excerpt: The X52 looks awesome. It is also very comfortable. The software for programing the device is easy to use. The X52 is actually called a flight control system because it is 2 sticks. One is throttle, and the other is direction. The throttle has a nice big blue screen that give you all the information you need to know about the profile, the current time, stopwatches and more. The device has precise control. There is no lag.
Summary: The X52 is a fairly standard HOTAS, sitting at the low end of Saitek's "Pro Flight sticks" as the "introductory" model. The picture shown is of the x52 PRO not the standard X52, they are slightly different. The stick is adjustable for hand rest and shift button. You can also control the resistance of the "rudder twist" feature, or even disable it.
Summary: I purchased this item for someone else. Unfortunately, recipient no longer wants this item as he already has one. Nevertheless, the item was delivered in a timely manner in very good condition.
Summary: For anyone getting into the world of flight simulators, and wanting something a bit more advanced than a logitech, this is pretty much the perfect flight stick. I mean at the price its given, it's pretty much the full package. Wish it had force feedback though. The controls are just tight enough to provide the right amount of resistance, and there's plenty of buttons and switches to map to your desire.
Summary: I'm glad I finally broke down and bought this product after reading about it for years. It has more features than are necessary and lots of buttons and switches that are all programmable. The only thing I wish was that the joystick would have adjustable tension but it's only one setting. Not that it's a bad setting, but I think a stick of this price range should be adjustable.
Summary: I play a lot of War Thunder and Flight Sim and I love this controller I am still programming it, as it has many features. I read a ton of reviews on many controllers and have friends with different types as well and found this to be the best of them all for the price I wanted to pay. No complaints.
Summary: The picture shown on the item is a Saitek x52 Pro, which is what I wanted. What you are selling is a regular Saitek x52. Yes I should have read it better but why are you picturing a more expensive item to sell a cheaper one?
