Nice layout & design, but QC issues
11 May 2015
Pros: Great layout, design and ergonomics. I really liked the funcionality of the throttle.
Cons: QC, QC & QC...The controller I ended up with had the top left stick button sticking depending on how it was pressed. Also the LCD seemed to not display correctly. The plastic casing did not line up correctly. Seemed to be cheaply made.
Summary: Create a Windows Restore point manually before installing the Saitek drivers for the X52 Pro. In order to get this set of peripherals working with my Windows 7 x64 system, I had to remove the Intel xHCI USB 3.0 drivers program using Programs and Features in the control panel.
Summary: Apparently the stick isn't linear. That is, by default the center of the stick has less sensitivity than the outside range of the joystick axis. This is very annoying but most games let you fix this in the settings. Still trying to figure out how to fix this for FSX though.
Summary: A great place to start. Feel great in you hands. Downside feels slight light. There is a slight Driver issue. It seems that Saitek never got around to fixing it. What will happen if you keep the x52 plugged in and your computer goes to sleep.
Summary: When it come to the Saitek X52 flight system, I do have to say I like it very much. I do have some complaints with the Walmart website. When I ordered my joystick and throttle, it was showing that i was ordering the Flight system Pro, but yet when I received it in the mail it was just the normal x52...
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.
Fun, when the cable isn't falling out of the throttle base

Summary: I sure wish they didnt use the outdated s-video connections for the joystick to throttle.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.
