Saitek X52 Pro Flight Control System

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.

Great setup for the money, has flaws
by Ryan from Chelmsford MA USA 

Pros: Lights, size, feel
Cons: Broken controls and adjustments
Review: This stick blew me away, but there were some issues. I was really impressed with the size and detail and feel of this stick. I was let down as I got to play around with it more because of certain things that felt "broken". For one, the "mode selector" switch was easily able to rotate past it's intended positions. I could tell right away that this was not supposed to be like that, but I don't use the switch, so I wasn't going to go out of my way to go through the return process. Another thing that didn't work quite as intended is the stick rotation lock, once you pull out the lock you shouldn't be able to rotate the stick, but with little effort my stick rotates and feels as if something is about to give when I do so. Another issue was with the throttle resistance adjustment, really I couldn't feel it doing anything as I adjusted it. It causes a clutter sound inside the throttle when moving it into it's min and max positions, which I've had flip the throttle on its back because of the force needed (not a huge issue since it comes with suction cups and mounting holes for screws, which I'm not currently using). My last gripe is with the handle adjustment, which allows you to adjust the handle guard on the stick to accommodate different hand widths. This mechanism was so clunky and badly designed that I felt as if I was doing something wrong by attempting to adjust it.
I'm impressed by the lights, and it really helps with the immersion and gameplay having this beast light up the room around you. I would like to have seen a power button for entire setup, since the lights can be both impressive and distracting if they are left hooked up to the computer while not in use.
Overall I gave this setup a 4 out of 5 stars because it is still an impressive peripheral, considering the price, but also because of the defects and bad design of certain "non essential" components.
I would recommend with a grain on salt.

So you want to be a fighter pilot
by Al from Pittsburgh PA USA 

Pros: well made, easy to use, hard to break!
Cons: The cost.
Review: I really like this set. I only gave it a 4 star because of the cost. It is easy to program and use. It is very rugged. For me that is a must.

A little too much flash and not enough performance
by A Customer from MN USA 

Pros: Very stylish, all-in-one, tons of control surfaces.
Cons: Loose spring and really tight thrust detents, Our model came with multiple broken bits.
Review: First, take this review with a grain of salt because mine is being returned to the manufacturer because of some faulty bits.

Overall, my feelings from the little experience I got with it:

Very stylish, throttle feels good, although I think the detent at the top and bottom feels a bit hard to push over. SOME of it feels very durable and well put together, but other parts are flimsyish plastic. Spring is SUPER loose, and I saw somewhere that it supposedly had a way to tighten the spring built in, but no. So loose spring is a part of life. However, what caused the RMA was a useless twist lock (I still got about 45% of play in the twist with the lock enabled) and a faulty mode select dial on the stick (loose, had no clicks in between and has an odd wobble)

Overall, I wanted to give Saitek another chance after my old stick years ago, but now I wish I had gone with CH products.

Biggest insult - after dropping the cash for this product, I then had to pay for the shipping to Saitek to get this RMAd (and they make sure we understand that the RMA may not be honored and they may send us the same unit back as it is, they might repair it, and they might replace it.

We'll see in a few weeks if the stick is all I hope it is (when I hopefully get it back)

Small problem since last review
by Gary from Elkhart 

Pros: Quality
Cons: None really, just needs a little lube on metal shaft from the factory
Review:

I just gave this stick a review in Jan 2014, not more than a week ago. My X-52 Pro developed a small problem. I felt that I needed to share this problem with other X-52 Pro owners.

My stick suddenly began to " bind up " a little when doing a right bank in my flight Sim, the motion was not smooth anymore. Needless to say I was a little upset after spending over 150 bucks for it and I have only had it a couple of months and just gave it a good review.

After a little investigating I discovered that the problem was the large washer under the spring rubbing against the shaft of the joystick. Two tiny drops of machine oil took care of that.. Its working very smooth now again. I chose to try to solve the problem my self rather than go through the hassel of sending in back and it paid off. Saitec should be doing this at the factory. Metal to metal is never a good idea without lubracation with moving parts.

A Bit Pricey.. But good quality..
by Gary from Elkhart IN USA 

Pros: Quality
Cons: none
Review: Nothing in life is perfect in my opinion.. If you're in the market for a good joystick, go ahead and spend the extra money if you have it and get the X-52 Pro. I have had it for a few months now and so far no complaints. I am not too fond of the PS-2 plugs that tie the throttle and the Stick together, but so far so good,.. no problems. The X-52 Pro is not the average joystick, its way above average in the quality department. Don't be afraid to purchase this one, its worth the money. I have 3 friends that recommended this one. I am glad I took their advise.

Thanks My Pilot Store...

X52 Pro Worth The Extra Green
by Rick from Winfield KS USA 

Pros: All listed in my review
Cons: Saitek Software
Review: I had a Plain Saitek X52 years ago and one of the Hall Effect Sensors would Intermittently Fail and the stick would not center in roll otherwise it was a good stick.

The X52 Pro is listed as having twice the sensors and I believe it is true as I have never had the precision that it delivers to my flying. I have had an original CH yoke and I now use the CH Eclipse and CH rudder pedals in my main sim setup in my basement and even though they are great yokes, I can fly more precise with the X52 Pro. The dual spring design is also a plus in the twist ( rudder ) part of the Pro. It returns to center better than I ever remember my old X52 did. The Metal parts of this stick and throttle gives a overall better impression of quality to the Pro version.

The configurable led backlighting when looking at the settings from the device and printers area of win 7 is pretty awesome and there are a considerable number of back lighted switches and knobs on the pro system that really makes it stand out from other devices on the market. I can not testify to the longevity since I have only had this setup on my bedroom simulator setup for a couple of months now. I setup a Digital Storm Vanquish level 4 machine in my bedroom due to arthritis in my knees at age 56 makes it difficult to make the trip up and down the basements stairs to the old i7 950 oc'ed to 3.85 Ghz and a pair of GTX 570's for multi monitor ops. The new Haswell i5 4670k oc'ed to 4.2 Ghz and the Asus GTX 770 really kick butt on the new bedroom setup! Oh by the way, I have never used the Saitek Driver or sst programming software as to it being a pain in the posterior from past experience. Win 7 by itself does a great job of configuring the X52 Pro system as soon as you plug it into a usb port. No need to fret over their software unless you like spending a lot of time trying to get it all to work. All in all I have found the X52 Pro to be well worth the money!!

Much better than the standard X52 joystick.
by A Customer from Foster City CA USA 

Pros: Smooth action, metal appointments, accurate, price.
Cons: Might could use a longer USB cord, I use an extension.
Review: The X52 pro has a more substantial feel than the standard version with better metal buttons and toggles and a very smooth feel. The X52 standard felt flimsy and cheep by comparison. The programming software, available for download, is keystroke based for software that doesn't recognize the joystick as a separate device. I'm very happy I chose this joystick as Ive broken many joysticks in the past and I think this one will last well.

Hard to beat.
by A Customer from Vernal UT USA 

Review: Moving up to an x52 from a Cyborg Evo was everything I had hoped for. Control precision is excellent and travel is smooth. The software is flexible enough to cover every game I need it for.

Two small gripes -
1) Both bases could use some weight to hold them down. Shouldn't be too hard to fix.

2) The provided suction cups don't work on my desk surface. They do work great on non-textured surfaces.

WOW!!!
by Don from Goldendale WA USA 

Pros: Mega adjustible
Cons: Can be a bit touchy so be careful
Review: Saitek's combat stick is a vast upgrade to those I had used before. Remember the old MS Sidewinder of years ago? Saitek did themselves, and some of us as armchair pilots, good with the addition to their lineup of the combat stick.

With lots of adjustible features, I'm still in that phase of getting mine set up properly.

I use mine for DCS P51-D, DCS A10-C, and some of the planes within FSX. This combat stick works well within each game.

Well Made
by deals47 from Charlotte NC USA 

Pros: sturdy, good quality, good feel, lots of programmable switches and buttons
Cons: Does not "officially" support the Mac/x-plane platform
Review: I really liked this joystick/throttle combination. It has a very good feel and good functionality. I would have given it 5 stars except for the fact that it does not support the Mac/X-plane platform that I use. Fortunately, there are plug-ins available created by gamers that allow this product to be used with my platform and give it a pretty good amount of its designed functionality. It would really be great if Saitek would officially provide that support.

Excellent construction, and great feel
by Milton from Van Horn TX USA 

Pros: Well built and sturdy, Great feel.
Cons: MFD dispay issues
Review: I bought the Saitek X52 Pro primarily for use with Flight Sim X, but wanted the extra features in case I got involved with another simulator ( I use to love F117 Stealth Fighter ). I'm very pleased with the construction and feel of this set, and love the fact that they stay in place during use. The only problem I have encountered to date is the MFD (Multi-function display) on the throttle stick. It worked when first installed and hasn't since. I am inclined to think that it may be due to my keyboard (Logitech G15). It too has an MFD. I don't see any conflicts listed but haven't really taken the time to fully trouble shoot it yet.

by Dan from Singapore 
Review: The product is amazingly configurable and responsive .... when it works. About two months after I bought it, the female end of the connector mounted in the joystick started to short out with every slight tremor of the cable inserted into it from the throttle. I have emailed Saitek and MadCatz support twice with no response. Don't expect support from Saitek.

"Too much whiz and not enough bang"

Don't get shocked
by N3254F from Bloomingdale, IL 

Pros: It's great for lights-out "night flying"
Cons: It doesn't have the "Force Feedback" that the Microsoft Sidewinder and others have.
Review: I was skeptical of spending the original investment for this flight system, but after many hours "in flight", I found the X-52 to be a great addition to my simulator. However, one MUST note, this is the FIRST Joy Stick I have ever owned that was susceptable to static discharges. I now own an X-52 that has been rendered unsuable.
