About this deal

My stick suddenly began to " bind up " a little when doing a right bank in my flight Sim, the motion was not smooth anymore. About two months after I bought it, the female end of the connector mounted in the joystick started to short out with every slight tremor of the cable inserted into it from the throttle.

And to promote maximum comfort during long flights, the joystick's handle also features contours which harmonize with your digits.This mechanism was so clunky and badly designed that I felt as if I was doing something wrong by attempting to adjust it. We don’t share your credit card details with third-party sellers, and we don’t sell your information to others. An upgraded multi-function LCD shows in-game data in real-time, new precision dual-spring centering mechanism features a metal cone, and an all-new look is adorned with refined materials to go that extra mile. And NOOOOOOOOO I don´t want some 500€ HOTAS with some cheap pistol-trigger shaped plastic one-stage-trigger telling me “well just press another button at the same time or make some combo or whatever immersion-breaking work-around” because missiles and also the Vulcan are fired with a two stage trigger.

The only problem I have encountered to date is the MFD (Multi-function display) on the throttle stick. Fortunately, there are plug-ins available created by gamers that allow this product to be used with my platform and give it a pretty good amount of its designed functionality. Saitek did themselves, and some of us as armchair pilots, good with the addition to their lineup of the combat stick.However, the new one seems to have a soft spring design and so it tends to have a slight bit of play in the center; therefore, I have to unplug it when not in use because it interferes with other games. Illuminated critical buttons on the stick and throttle let you know where to press when time is of the essence. It's so hard to find the middle of travel with these dials that I've had to set up an overly large deadzone.

I was skeptical of spending the original investment for this flight system, but after many hours "in flight", I found the X-52 to be a great addition to my simulator. I am pretty sure I will encounter many more sources of bewilderment over the next few days, while I try to configure some sort of sense out of the thing. Featuring an upgraded multifunction LCD which shows in-game data in real time, a progressive throttle with tension adjustment, plus an adjustable joystick with a self-centering mechanism.Hi Lil_hammer84, I have come back to using the X52 pro (for a couple of reasons) and am struggling to find the Logitch software. Is the throttle quadrant good and very precise and not turning the thrust up and down like crazy with no precision at all? I am not too fond of the PS-2 plugs that tie the throttle and the Stick together, but so far so good,. However, one MUST note, this is the FIRST Joy Stick I have ever owned that was susceptable to static discharges.
