Everything else works great, but this is a deal breaker

Jason K., Amazon
28 February 2015
  • Summary: For some reason the adjustable piece for your hand will not stay put when adjusted. I would expect a 200 dollar item would work as desribed and be quality enough to function correctly. Everything else works great, but this is a deal breaker.

Do not expect it to last for a mere $180.00

J. Biehl "Depressed Gamer", Amazon

  • Summary: The joystick is beautiful to look at and feels great in the hand. I had the Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X Flight Stick and like it very much but when I started to play Elite Dangerous this stick just did not have enough buttons and Coolie hats or POV Hats. I wanted separate for thrusters, focus navigation and power distribution.

  • 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.

Well....

ANTON D., Newegg
28 January 2015
  • Pros: As tired as this is: Looks nice, lots of button. Rubbery-feel grip feels pretty good. Good side stick and throttle.
  • Cons: The (in comparison) non significant stuff out of the way: The stick definitely feels way too light. I got used to it after a day or two (trying to set it up, more below) so it was not a big deal. To get 100% throttle, you really need to push the throttle forward so it goes past a "click", again, nothing major, perhaps the stick needs to be worked in. My biggest problem was with installation... I can honestly say, I have never plugged anything so horrible into the USB ...

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?
