The X52 Flight System is the premium stick model outside the Saitek Pro Flight Range.

Featuring 23 buttons, three 8-way hat switches and 7 control axes, the X52 gives you 47 basic commands plus the control axes. But when you include the programming options provided by powerful Saitek Smart Technology programming software, which allows you to make use of the 3 position mode switch and Pinkie shift switch, the total number of programmable commands rises to 282!

And if this isn’t enough, you can program even more commands by adding more modes with the programming software. With the X52, you no longer need to touch your PC keyboard during flight simulation so you can keep your hands planted where they need to be – on the stick and throttle.

With all those commands, things could get confusing so you can use the Multi-Function Display (MFD) screen to check programmed command names and use the clock and stopwatch function for timing the legs of your flight plan.

The X52 also uses magnetic hall effect, non-contact sensors for the stick movement, so you won’t ever need to worry about employing a ground crew for regular services.

It will do

  • By Daffy of "Death From Above" Acrs High from Salisbury NC USA on Saturday, May 05, 2018
  • Pros: Just a good all around stick
  • Review: Only complaint is, moving the joystick side to side (ailerons) or forward and back, the transition is not smooth when the stick goes through the center. Hard to explain. There are plenty of buttons to program so you do not have to use the keyboard.

Think it's great

  • Review: Think it's great

Good for the money!

  • By Jesse from Port Saint Lucie FL USA on Tuesday, October 03, 2017
  • Pros: Good design for the price
  • Review: This works well and the design took less than a day to get used to. Maybe the spring could be stronger but I'm not complaining for how much fun its given me.

Working as advertised

  • By Isaac Zich from Urbana IL USA on Sunday, June 18, 2017
  • Pros: Solidly made, good design
  • Review: Pretty much what I expected. Nothing special but well made. The only issue that I had was it some pieces of software would not recognize all of the dials or sliders so it would have been nice if some of those were buttons instead

Saitek X52

  • By Ross from Deer Park TX USA on Thursday, May 25, 2017
  • Pros: smooth operations, flight stick:joy stick, programable
  • Review:

    This is an AWESOME product!!  It is very precise, very fluid in it's movement- trust me like most pilots I can be very hard on the joy stick during a dog fight!! I like the ability to program the flight system to what ever program I working with at the time.

    The ONLY draw back I have(thus the 4 stars, not 5), and it's very simple: is I wish the joy stick could be used without the handle control; see, simple. other than that this is one very nice piece of equipment that ANY pilot should have!!

great product
