  • Summary: The picture shows a Saitek X52 Pro, not the Saitek X52, so I was pretty surprised when I opened my shipping box. If you just want the X52, and not the X52 Pro, you're better off going through other major online retailers that may or may not be named after a rain forest or river in South America.

Bad Stick

Joel L., Newegg
20 January 2015
  • Summary: look me up on steam and contact me if you have any questions.
  • Pros: None
  • Cons: The flash of the joystick as it loses power to the joystick. i can be in a bank and holding the stick and the joystick will flash/turn off and when it comes back on, it will reset the throttle as if the bank i'm holding is center. This major flaw has put me into the ground numerous times and is even worse with helicopters as you are flying low to the ground and you don't have time to fix the problem by pulling the power plug on the back of the stick. DO NOT BUY THIS S...

  • Summary: I recently bought a Saitek x52 Flight System for my first ever flight sim, And was very much excited to use it. Except it seems the joystick has major problems installing and being used, Just Google it there are forums all over saying how bad it is. And now I have to go through the pain of sending one back and finding something else. Long story short don't buy.

Flight Stick just keeps flashing

Henry, Newegg
7 August 2014
  • Summary: The quality of the power port on the flight stick seems very low for a $120 setup.
  • Pros: thrust works great, it was easy to set up.
  • Cons: The actual flight stick doesn't work it just has its lights flashing constantly when plugged in. I've searched through multiple forums on how to fix this and nothing has worked.

Cable problems

John R., Newegg
7 July 2014
  • Pros: Not sure. I have to order other connectors to get it to work.
  • Cons: The joystick uses a PS/2 cable and does not have USB option like the throttle. The USB cable on the throttle is very short.

  • 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?

lolsaitek/madcatz

Alan D., Newegg
7 November 2013
  • Pros: button functionality, so many different ways to program buttons.
  • Cons: main stick is EXTREMLY loose in comparison to what i would call high end hotas systems. and then there are the drivers and customer support....or rather lack there of. constant crashing of the SST programing software forces me to restart my system each time it does go down, and this is a completly clean win 7 OS. but yet somehow, i keep getting a .net component error? reinstalled the drivers and software three times...still the same thing. and NO support from their we...

Its a Madcatz, what do you expect?

John M., Newegg
18 February 2013
  • Summary: If your considering this.. do yourself a favor.. take your money, throw it on the floor, and burn it. You'll get more enjoyment out of the cash that way.
  • Pros: None.
  • Cons: Everything. Lets face it people.. if you dont know MadCatz reputation yet, they make the highest priced, cheapest pieces of junk on the market today. If you've ever bought a gamestop brand controller that died in a week.. congratulations.. you've experienced MadCatz products. (They're the same) If you purchased Rock Band 1,2,3, Cymbal kit etc etc.. and half of them didnt work.. congrats, you've experienced a MadCatz product. Absolute junk. Returned in 1 day. I should ...
