Military-grade Space Sim Precision - Evolving the H.O.T.A.S.
Designed to meet the needs of the re-emerging space simulation genre, Saitek introduces the new X-56 Rhino H.O.T.A.S. System. Built to the same exacting standards of Saitek's award-winning Pro Flight accessories range, the X-56 Rhino delivers a multitude of customizable options.

6 Degrees of Freedom (6DoF) - New Mini Analog Stick Control Surfaces
In modern space sims control is becoming more complex than in traditional atmosphere-based flight simulations, with many more inputs required to achieve true control of the space craft. Pitch, roll, yaw, backwards, forwards, up, down, left and right (the titular 6DoF) all need to be accounted for.

This is why the new mini analog sticks are required; providing four more axes of control. Assignable to any in-game axis function, or programmable using the included software, running out of control options is no longer an issue.

RGB Backlighting - Customize lighting to suit your setup
Many PC peripherals now feature RGB backlighting and now the X-56 is no exception. Use the software to set the colour of the lighting to match the rest of your gaming rig.

VR Controller - Ideal for use while wearing a HMD
Piloting whilst using VR is a great experience but can prove difficult because you can't see your own hands, which can make finding the controls you need problematic. The X-56 places controls perfectly under your fingers where subtle distinctions in button feel and shape help you navigate the control set with ease. Even the switches on the base of the throttle are staggered or separated so telling them apart from feel alone is possible, leaving you free to concentrate on the immersive VR experience.

Contact-free Hall Effect sensors - Enhanced Stick Accuracy
The X-56 Rhino's control surfaces are incredibly accurate, courtesy of a 16-bit aileron and elevator axis, each employing hall-effect sensors. Developed from the ground up, Saitek's 16-bit axis solution enables extremely precise flight.

Adjustable Stick Spring Force via Advanced 4-Spring F.E.E.L. System
A ground-breaking, adjustable stick spring system allows pilots to alter the force required to move the stick. Four springs of varying resistance are included to provide a total of five different options. Choose the spring – or no spring at all – which best accommodates your style of flying.

Twin Throttle with Friction Adjuster and Throttle Lock
The X-56 Rhino boasts twin throttles – ideal for situations in which your primary engine is disabled and you're down to one – and also provides the option to adjust the friction required to move them. And if your aircraft of choice is single-engine, a handy throttle lock effectively converts the twin throttles into a single unit.

At least 231 Programmable Controls
Saitek's software provides the ability to completely customize all of the X-56 Rhino's axes and buttons. You can adjust deadbands and response curves to fine-tune axes to respond as you wish; all buttons can assign any number of in-sim commands, such as afterburner, Frame Shift Drive, target lock and weapon group firing. The software also allows programmability for an array of mouse and keyboard commands – from basic single-key inputs to very advanced, timed, and macro commands.

Your Saitek Pro Flight X-56 Rhino will include:

  • X-56 Rhino Stick Unit with USB Connector Cable
  • X-56 Rhino Throttle Unit with USB Connector Cable and Green Backlighting
  • Spring System with 4 Springs of Varied Resistance

Minimum System Requirements: Microsoft Windows: XP, Vista, 7, 8, 8.1, 10,  2x USB 2.0 Ports

Great Flight Stick

  • By Eagles one from Newport News VA USA on Tuesday, April 24, 2018
  • Pros: Best Flight stick I ever used.
  • Review: I am upgrading from the X52, the X56 is like night and day. It makes Elite Dangerous even better. More than enough controls for anyone.

A very good HOTAS

  • By Steve from Lake Forest CA USA on Thursday, February 22, 2018
  • Pros: Attractive design, seems well built
  • Review: Overall, it meets my expectations. I like the placement of most of the buttons. I can reach everything easily. Small hands might disagree. The build quality seems good and I hope the X-56 lasts a few years.

OMG YES

  • By daniel from Houma LA USA on Tuesday, January 02, 2018
  • Pros: everything
  • Review: Well I upgraded from a Logitech 3d pro joystick to this, and OMG THIS THING IS SO GREAT!  I had to use the red spring so I could get it to be a little stronger on the feed back. But all in all this x56 rhino set up is awesome, and don't say there is not enough buttons for your hands because there are plenty. This thing is very easy to work with and once you get use to it, its really fun and great to have.  I play Elite Dangerous with it and love it.  It's a little on the pricy side but like they say you get what you pay for. Simple as that.

Best HOTAS I've ever owned!

  • By A Customer from Garner NC USA on Wednesday, October 05, 2016
  • Pros: Sensitive. Lots of options. Alot of options for macros.
  • Review: Great product with an amazing sensitivity. The stick part is very sensitive, which I like. The freedom of motion is amazing. It also has a lot of buttons which is really useful. The throttle can be split for multiple inputs. The only downside is how "sticky" the throttle seems

90% Awesome

  • By James C from Sheridan CO, USA on Saturday, September 17, 2016
  • Pros: Tons of button assignments. Very customisable.
  • Review: This controller has more buttons, switches, and rotary controls than you could assign. Right out of the box there was a problem with the twisting control of the joystick. It is 15 degrees off center(to the right side) and I have not been able to fix this. I was able to skirt the problem by increasing the dead zone but you shouldn't have to do this with something this expensive when its brand new. The other issue I have is that the supplied riser for the joystick does not raise your hand enough so reaching the top hat switches can not be reached without re-positioning your hand each time. There are many reports of problems with the throttle assembly but I have had no issues with it yet. Overall I like the controller. Just wish I could fix the joystick, it really tarnishes this product.

Strange color design on both joystick and throttle

  • By David from Israel on Friday, August 12, 2016
  • Pros: Many options for defining functions
  • Review: I just got it here is Israel yesterday.
    First impression was I got a faulty unit due to poor paint job.after checking the saitek website and other sites I saw it is designed like that.
    Call me old school,but it looks very bad in my eyes.
    Now to the unit itself.very easy to program and lots of buttons an sliders.changed a spring today and had problems putting parts back.but read the PDF manual and it helped.
    I had the X65 for some years now and wanted to step up.
    Looks and feels very nice.

Good product, no complaints, except $.

  • By A Customer from McKinney TX USA on Thursday, July 28, 2016
  • Pros: solid, but pricey
  • Review: Good product, no complaints, except $.
