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.

Great Hotas

  • By Jim from Bermuda Run NC USA on Saturday, August 08, 2020
  • Pros: Does everything I need it to do.
  • Review: First time Hotas buyer here and I think they are great, much better than just a joystick. Now that I have one I don't think I could go back, at least not for some games.
    I can't speak for durability as I haven't had them long but so far I'm impressed.

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.
