Fun, when the cable isn't falling out of the throttle base

Chris, Amazon

  • Summary: I sure wish they didnt use the outdated s-video connections for the joystick to throttle. the connection is shotty and loose, causing the joystick to lose power intermittently in the middle of a flight. why they didn't use serial or usb connections or hardwire them is beyond me. otherwise, fun flight stick and gets the job done.

Comparison to Older Saitek Versions

Roger, Amazon
18 April 2013
  • Summary: I bought this flight stick along with a Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals , as a replacement to my older Saitek X45. Some misfortunes or bugs with previous versions, the Saitek X45 had a very stiff spring within the joystick causing significant problems. Also, the X45 suffered a loose connection on the throttle controller connector to the joystick, and had to resplice the cable.

Great design, not durable

Michael J. Brown, Amazon
12 March 2012
  • Summary: Nice set up. "Feels" durable and sturdy. No issues with Windows 7. Used on CFS3, IL-46, IL-46 Cliffs of Dover, FSX, DCS Black Shark, Wings over Vietnam and Wings of Prey. No issues on any of these applications. Loved that you can adjust the throttle friction. The durability is my issue with this HOTAS system. The first one I purchased worked for about 3 months. I noticed the lights would flicker on and off on the joystick.

Close to greatness

  • Summary: I have had ten different sticks in my 20 years of fighter simulations, mostly sidewinders and logitech sticks, this is my first time going saitek as I had been on the fence with the configuration of the grip and how it fits the hand, so here I am with a saitek x-52 and here is my two cents.

half and half

jdarne, Amazon

  • Summary: The system has lots of buttons for programming. This is very appealing. I found the axis control stick very poor . For flying games I found the stick to be unreliable for resolution of the target. No matter what the adjustment in sensitivity it was useless. I ended up going back to my old logitech Extreme 3D Pro. And its worn out. However I combined the throttle side with the 3D Pro using the program disc that came with the Saitek.
