Summary: When I figured out how to program all the buttons, I hardly use the keyboard. It's not the controllers fault, remember real men don't read instructions. Out of all my controllers these are the best. I only use them with FSX.
Summary: So I play Elite Dangerous and Star Citizen(Alpha). Those games I would use my xbox one controller, for some reason I still found it hard to fly and dogfight with the controller, keyboard and mouse is literally impossible for me. Using this Saitek, Man alive!
Summary: Love how it replicates the Airbus joystick nicely.
Pros: I think the lighting and control surfaces are fantastic. Both the stick and throttle are very durable and the twist rudder replaces the pedals for me. I feel like I am using manual transmission instead of automatic, put it that way.
Cons: While the stick and throttle are amazing, the only thing I would have loved to see is an easier way to program this outside of the simulatior with the driver and software. Also, be sure to use the latest drivers online! (people who use 5 year old cd roms that come in thr box are stupid).
Summary: This is hands-down the best, all-around gaming joystick on the market. A $1.00 pack of Velcro and you can't go wrong. I'll start with the cons. I bought this for Elite Dangerous and Flight Simulator X Steam Edition. For Elite Dangerous the little mouse stick is not recognized as a joystick.
Summary: Functionally this is a perfect X52 Pro. Being a day one review I feel that I will update this in the future. After six months I should know how good mine really is. Considering this stick has been manufactured since 2004 (the standard model at least) and owners from back then still use it today I...
Pros: -Works, and I know this is a problem with some unlucky buyers. -Drivers and software were a simple install -Lovely brightness slider for MFD and LEDs (great for darker rooms I imagine, they can be pretty bright at the default max setting) along with being able to change their color. -Comfortable ...
Cons: -A couple of the buttons on the throttle specifically are difficult to reach comfortably while also using the throttle. (Size of your hand may change this) -Before I used the suction cups the units were noticeably top heavy
