The most fully integrated Stick and throttle flight controller: built to meet the demands of the best virtual pilots in the world!

The MFD screen, first introduced on the X52 Flight Controller, is now interactive. Now you can display important in-game information such as the Radio Stack and interact with your games directly. Shipping with support for Microsoft’s Flight Simulator X, there’s also a Software Development Kit (SDK) included which allows budding programmers to create interactions with their own favourite games. See what’s been created already on our forum.

Chose between night-friendly red, green or amber illumination for the different LED buttons on the controller. Using the SDK, you can also program the LEDs to react to conditions in your game such as flashing red during a stall or changing colour when pressed. Now there’s a huge number of possibilities for even greater interaction between your controller and the simulation.

New metal parts increase durability and the unique dual-spring mechanism provides a progressive spring force on the stick’s movement, making it more resistant the further you move it from centre. The X52 Pro uses the same magnetic hall sensor, non-contact technology as the X52 but we’ve doubled the number of sensors to improve response. The smooth movement and enhanced control give you unparalleled accuracy and bring you even closer to reality.

Need of Improvement

  • By Derrick from Chehalis WA USA on Friday, April 28, 2017
  • Pros: Programmable buttons and switches at fingertips
  • Review: I bought a new joystick because my old X45 wouldn't center. However, the new one seems to have a soft spring design and so it tends to have a slight bit of play in the center; therefore, I have to unplug it when not in use because it interferes with other games. I bought another Saitek vs. a yoke due to the versatility of all the programmable buttons on the flight sticks, but I think Saitek needs to re-engineer the spring tension design from scratch.

Brings Elite Dangerous in VR to the next level

  • By K8 from Downingtown PA USA on Tuesday, March 21, 2017
  • Pros: Matches in game stick in Elite Dangerous
  • Review: I bought this stick to use for elite dangerous in virtual reality. The in-game flight stick is modeled after the Saitek x52 Pro. It adds that extra level of immersion.

Saitek X52 Pro

  • By A Customer from Austin TX USA on Monday, February 27, 2017
  • Pros: Looks far better than regular X52
  • Review: Works great on PC but sadly not on PS3. Don't own a PS4 so I cannot say if I works on that system.

10 Years of Hard Use

  • By cg2020cg from New Smyrna Beach, FL on Thursday, May 26, 2016
  • Pros: Don't need calibrated but once per year & that only takes me 5 minutes
  • Review: I have had the X52's for nearly 10 years. It's definitely time to replace, but I will simply buy the "Pro's" again. These things have been used and abused daily since 2007 with nearly 10,000 hours of flying including kids and grand-kids slamming them around. The un-useable buttons and missing pieces are from several residential moves and improper care during those moves. Nothing has worked for me better with so much use and still useable for all necessary functions. When something breaks-down like a switch or light,I simply program another to do the same job! They are fully functional even so.

  • By Thomas from Dawson NE USA on Monday, August 24, 2015
  • Pros:
  • Review: I really like this. In fact it's my second one. Wore the first one out. Centers perfect, it's sensitive without being to sensitive, works well for both fs9 and fsx, plus various combat simulators. Very happy camper.

Do like the controls

  • By Steve from Bucyrus OH USA on Monday, July 13, 2015
  • Pros: Looks and feels great, Smooth action allong the axis when flying.
  • Review: The controls themselves seem to work ok. The software for them is kin of is lacking at best. The website for support is not that great either.

Solid control, software needs updating.

  • By ron from Reno NV USA on Wednesday, June 03, 2015
  • Pros: price, built solidly
  • Review: I think it is a good system, but for a beginner as for myself a little overwhelming.  I bought it for Star Citizen and my first PC flight game. I think the programming guides could be written a little more clearer, there are some third party ones on web done better for us newbies, and software needs to be updated so more friendlier for windows v8.0. I actually found an html output that was written by someone else and used it, would have been nice if the programming software could out put an html file, or just a seed file came with it. So not real sure if it was the compatibility of the game to x52 pro and drivers or what but, seems solidly built and no problems mechanically with the controls. Worked good with Microsoft flight sim.
