the good:
-the suction cups hold very well to my glass topped desk so there is no movement of the whole unit.
-there are quite a few buttons, switches, dials and toggles
-the stick can be adjusted for distance between main trigger and the pinky trigger
the bad:
-The lights are a little bright but can be set by software.
-the spring is rather squeaky
-there is no way to adjust the spring tension short of modifying it
-the throttle handle has an odd shape.
all in all I like the Saitek x52 flight control system.

The Good: I've had my Saitek X52 Hands on Throttle and Stick (HOTAS) for over 6 years and still going. I use it for almost any flight/space sim... Evochron Mercenary, BF3/4, X-Plane, DCS Flight Sims, etc. Works with anything you throw at it. The joystick itself isn't as accurate as higher priced items but I haven't had any issues, even in very realistic sims and so it's a good bang for your buck. Lots of customization, works in any game/sim and loads of ample buttons for almost any control scheme. Even has a "shift" button to allow mapping one button to do more than one thing. Even the throttle is nice, pretty smooth and adjustable for friction. It's good enough to fly Riddick's ship in his 2013 movie.... last couple minutes, you'll see this exact HOTAS in his cockpit near ending.

The Bad: It is cheap... cheaply built to some extent. Although I've had it a LONG time, the analog wheels do die eventually, my first one within a couple months of buying. Read many things about why, but the potentiometers they used for any "wheel" or "dial" seems to be cheap. MAYBE the more "recent" ones are better, but do your research and this may still be an issue. There are some guides on how to replace them, but on my throttle only the slider and HAT work now, leaving two dead dials. Not a problem for me as I don't use those, but this is apparently a common issue.

Not much out there around this price to offer this much, so I'd say go for it. The "Pro" version is supposed to have better potentiometers for the dials though and probably worth it... I have had this set for over 6 years.... so it also tells you this controller is not any type of "new" model.

Suggestion: If money or time using something like this is an issue, this is a perfect buy. If you got more cash get the Pro version, a little better built and a few more options. If money isn't a issue, the best out there I've tried is still Thrustmaster Warthog HOTAS.... about 4x more expensive though.

I was lookinEg at the X52 Pro for some time, then came across the X52. It was a more reasonable price and I can say that now I have installed it at set it up with Microsoft Flight Simulator 10, Euro Truck Simulator, American Truck Simulator and Elite Dangerous. It is absolutely fabulous.
I am totally happy with the product. I know that some may not agree, but it all works great for me.

Great HOTAS setup, though I haven't had one before. Both the throttle and stick are adjustable to your preferences somewhat and the available Saitek software for programming the functions (while fiddley) is robust and useful. Its a bit expensive but it changed the way playing Elite Dangerous feels HUGELY for me.

The only downside I found is that the stick is sprung very lightly and on a BRAND new stick I've had to bump up the dead zones slightly on the Y axis otherwise the nose pulls down slightly but consistently when the stick is centered.

Great Flight System.

Pro's. Looks great, fairly comfortable, stick feels much smoother and more accurate than my Logitech 3d Pro and other generic joysticks I've used. Works amazing with Elite Dangerous which has a profile specifically for the X52/X52 Pro.

Con's:
The throttle has a stiff "Click" point at around 10% and 90%, which I guess could be useful for engine shutoff / afterburner, but it makes the throttle much harder to use unless you set 2 large dead zones in the config and operate between them. I have purchased a CH Pro Throttle USB to get around this issue.

Well priced and they still work well after several months.. They have much more capability (buttons) than I require but they work well on FSX.
