Saitek's X52 Pro Flight H.O.T.A.S. System is a fully integrated hands on stick and throttle flight controller that meets or exceeds the demands of the best flight simulator pilots. 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. The X52 Pro takes all the standout features from the original X52 and elevates them to a higher altitude.
Dual-Spring Centering Mechanism
A highly accurate centering mechanism ensures the joystick will easily return to the neutral position after you let go. Non-contact technology on the X and Y axes enhance control while increasing durability. And, the stick becomes more resistant as it moves farther away from the center position.
Advanced Grip Adjustment System
A five-position handle adjustment system conforms to your grip style and hand size. And to promote maximum comfort during long flights, the joystick's handle also features contours which harmonize with your digits.
3D Twist with Rudder Lock
The joystick's twist rudder controls add another dimension of command to simulated flight. If you prefer more traditional control, a rudder lock switch disables the twist capabilities and confines input to the X and Y axes – ideal for use with Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals (sold separately).
Progressive Throttle with Resistance Adjustment
The throttle unit's progressive functionality improves aircraft response. Detents – physical markings indicating where a certain action takes places – simplify control of your plane's idle and reverse thrusters. Yet another customizable feature found on the X52 Pro, a tension adjustment dial lets you change the throttle's resistance to suit the way you fly.
Multifunction LCD Display
The X-52 Pro's LCD screen – with adjustable backlighting – enables you to view information about your button configurations with only a quick glance. Even more beneficial is the ability to directly manipulate radio stack information in FSX, X-Plane, Prepar3D, and most flight simulation software. You can then use the buttons residing below the Multifunction Display (MFD) to cycle through essential radio stack functions. A downloadable Software Development Kit allows you to create your own MFD interactions.
Powerful Programming Software (PC Only)
After installing downloadable software, you are then free to create custom profiles for different flight sims. Three mode settings and a pinkie switch provide enhanced programming options for even more control in your favorite sim. And, all button programming is color coded. Assign a color to each button's tri-state LED, and then make adjustments via controller settings within joy.cpl (Game Controllers).
Well built and extremely versatile - works excellent in my VR setup - highly recommend !
I bought the x52 package specifically for Microsoft flight simulator. It works really well.
So far I have had three major problems: 1. The control stick gets stuck when when moving in any direction about halfway thru its travel and takes a very large amount of force to get it moving again. 2. Macro creation in the Logitech provide software for this unit does not work. I created many macros using the old Siatek software with my previous X52 without issue. 3. The Logitech software does not recognize profiles created with the Siatek Software. I am going to try and return because when you spend this kind of money for a device I expect it to work.
No, this intended for use with Windows XP, Vista, or 7 (32 and 64-Bit).
Yes, this works with Windows 10.
Yes, this will work with X Plane 11.
This stick system has many programmable buttons and knobs. One of them can be set within the software to control trim.
