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

Chris, Amazon
13 December 2013
  • Summary: I sure wish they didnt use the outdated s-video connections for the joystick to throttle.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.

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.

Saitek X52 Pro Flight Control System

patbrad, Overstock
1 February 2012
  • Summary: This would make a great unit if only it had complete and accurate instructions, no game presets, no support they wont reply to any questions. The support forum does not allow you to post any new questions as they have closed it down for any new post so if it's about anything new forget it your on your own. I would not buy it again knowing this even thou the unit appears to be fairly well made.

Awesome and unreliable

Tyler W., Newegg
7 January 2012
  • Summary: Best stick I've owned, but looking forward to an upgrade.
  • Pros: Excellent joystick and throttle feel Lots of buttons Easily programmable Very comfortable
  • Cons: Breaks. I've had minor problems all the time with this stick. Both of the POV hats have a broken directional buttons. I also can no longer select "Mode 2" at all, so I have 1/3 less buttons altogether.
