90% Awesome

  • By James C from Sheridan CO, USA on Saturday, September 17, 2016
  • Pros: Tons of button assignments. Very customisable.
  • Cons: Problems right out of the box. Over-priced
  • 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.

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.
  • Cons: "sticky" throttle
  • 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

Strange color design on both joystick and throttle

  • By David from Israel on Friday, August 12, 2016
  • Pros: Many options for defining functions
  • Cons: Paint joy
  • 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.
