Logitech Saitek X52 Flight Control System

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 

Pros: Just a good all around stick
Cons: The transitionfrom left to right or back and forth is botherson, it just is not smooth.
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.

Good for the money!
by Jesse from Port Saint Lucie FL USA 

Pros: Good design for the price
Cons: spring could be stronger, maybe

Working as advertised
by Isaac Zich from Urbana IL USA 

Pros: Solidly made, good design
Cons: Too many dials and Sliders that are incompatible with software that could have been toggle switches instead
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 

Pros: smooth operations, flight stick:joy stick, programable
Cons: can't use the joy stick independantly from the flight control handle

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!!

I would buy this again
by Jeff from State College PA USA 

Review: Great simulator used it very hard with middle school students.  The only downside is that it is not fully USB, just the connection to the computer is USB
the connection between the throttle and joystick are still a older pin plug that loosens up and finally stops working or breaks, if they went fully USB it would be 5 star

by A Customer from Virginia Beach VA USA 

Pros: Lots of buttons and mode capable.
Cons: It is large.
Review: This HOTAS is a Great Buy, it is well designed and has multi-function capable of many games to be used. I would say it has more buttons then you may ever use which is awesome, I like this fact cause you'll be able to always find a button to use for something!

Damn good product!!!
by Steven from SALT LAKE CITY UT USA 

Pros: Great response, easy to understand, good support software
Cons: Lack of available profiles
Review: I bought this product for use with Microsoft's Flight Simulator, although I'm certain it would work quite well on other like applications. I am very impressed not only by the responsiveness of the dual components, but the ease of creating profiles. This is not to say however, that creating profiles for products such as this is not a tedious process, but it is straight forward and easy to understand. If there are any shortcomings of this product I should think they rest in lack of available profiles for popular applications. I searched the web and was able to find only one profile for Flight Sim, but alas that was set for only one aircraft profile. It would be of great facility if there was perhaps a user shared site were users could upload profiles for other users according to apps. I personally don't play first person shooters but I do have every certainty that a user would find this a good choice for those apps as well.

Almost ideal.
by Steve from West St. Paul MN USA 

Pros: Programming for individuality and authenticity
Cons: A bit clutterd controls bunched up.
Review: I personally would have liked a module, between the Joystick and the Throttle, to un-clutter the Joystick and the Throttle. I'd rather be twisting the twisters on a panel than having to look for it during the flights. The panel would make sense to have the various switches spaced for authentisity; like a Robinson R22, or perhaps the Cessna. The keyword is "I personally would have liked...". Everyone else might view differently: a pretty great item.

Sticky, catchy, or jerky joystick
by Guyote from Boulder, CO 

Pros: Relatively inexpensive, overall nice feel for the price.
Cons: May need mod for smooth fine joystick movement
Review: Being a purchaser of the old F16 Flight System from Thrustmaster back about 1997, 1998, I am relatively pleased with the Saitek system in X-Plane 8.60 and now 9. The only complaint I have is that the joystick is sticky when attempting small flight adjustments. It's great when you want to wail on the thing, it just doesn't have a smooth fine movement. I wonder if there is anything out there with real ball-bearing, or needle-bearing surfaces. The bearing surfaces on the Saitek are plastic and there is a pretty strong spring above to ensure decent centering when hands-off. I have experimented on this joystick by holding the spring-plate up while flying and I get remarkable control. I've tried talcum powder and several other lubricants to ease the movement (non-conductive of course), but I've not arrived at anything that does well. I tried shortening the spring by cutting a ring off of it, but the steel used for this spring defies my nippers. I think this is my next experiment, but I need to obtain a small enough phillips screw-driver to remove the spring do I can apply a hack-saw or something. Anyone else out there have any suggestions? If I can obtain the sort of feel I want from this joystick, I think I'd like to get the rudder-pedels...will get back what my old Thrustmaster system offered (alas, it died several years ago...)

I would buy this product again.
by A Customer from GLASGOW KY USA 

Pros: Ease of programming, control response
Cons: Rudder controls a little stiff

Loved response of controls and ease of programming.  Meets or exceeds all of my expectations.  I had a friend who purchased one about 6 months ago and he praised the product.  Now that I am using it, I can see why he praised it so much.  One of the best buys on the market today.

Maybe I'm too slow to grasp all the whistles and bells
by David from Concord NC USA 

Review: I enjoy this controller with Microsofts Flight Simulator 2004, but when I tried it out with X-Plane version 9.22 it did not communicate. I am still waiting for a reply from X-Plane to check out what they know. It is too soon to give a good reply; as I am not allowed to spend too much time at the 'girl-friend' (CPU) or the wife gets irrate. :-)) That's life.
