When I got this HOTAS, I had considerable issues to get it up and running on a new, state of the art computer build (Intel X99 chipset, socket 2011-v3 mainboard). The driver install would simply crash-freeze halfway and leave the system unstable until reboot. Turns out that the drivers do not work on recent Intel chipsets, as long as the HOTAS is connected to any of the motherboard USB ports and USB 3.0 is not fully disabled (even if connected to a USB 2 port). If you have an older motherboard, you are fine. If you disable USB 3.0 in BIOS, you are fine. If you add a non-Intel USB 2 card and connect to that, you are fine as well. The issue is well documented on different internet forums, just Saitek support is completely agnostic.

Once I could connect the X-52 Pro to a USB 2 add-on card, drivers installed fine. I use this stick to play Elite Dangerous and it is superb for this purpose. The immersion and fun is simply a lot better than with a gamepad and you can handle your space ship with precision and ease.

After about two months, the throttle started to act up and failed after about four months, with multiple malfunctions:
- Illumination of the Throttle buttons failed
- Mini Mouse-Stick started to act erratic, depending on throttle position, causing random mouse movement
- The mechanical resistance points at low and high throttle thresholds started to fail, with increasing noise and stickiness
- Eventually, the throttle could no longer be returned to Zero

I have opened a support ticket and can only hope that they honor the warranty within a reasonable time. I knew about Saitek QA issues and unfortunately, I have to experience them first-hand now.

The joystick and the throttle are nice and work very well. There is a lot of buttons to assign and it feels right in hands. I used it a lot while playing Strike Suit Zero. Even thou it made the game a little harder because the joystick is less accurate than a mouse or a gamepad, the game became more immersive and enjoyable to play.

The only thing I dont like about the x52pro is the lacking of accuracy for small moves (which is important in plane/space dogfighting). Thats probably because of the way the double springs keep the stick strait. But you get use to it pretty quick while you improve. In any case, it is a good choice for the price. A HOTAS might be better (especially for flight simulators) but it cost double.

Software wise, it is easy to use. One can map custom keyboard keys or combination of keys to the different buttons for games that don't recognize the joystick as controls, (and theres a lot of tutorials on youtube for help.) You can also use the software to change the color of the buttons lights and to modify deadzones.

I recommend downloading the driver and the software for saitek (madcatz) website, especially if you are working on windows 7 or 8 since the cd-rom that comes with the package seems a little outdated.

Overall it is a very nice joystick, I don't regret the money spent.

Works well with:
Strike Suit Zero (Must put the mode to : Joystick/Keyboard, and not GAMEPAD)
Damage Inc

I don't plan to try Combat Pilot since its a pay 2 play

I heard it works quite nicely with Flight Simulator X, and I'm looking foward for trying it with World of Warplane and Star Citizen.

Very frustrating, you wait a week unable to use the simulator. You open it up, a bit suspiciously as the Saitek box appears to be tampered with (the securing lip on the top flap was not in place. You open it up and the rubber feet are in place on the base of both units. Has this been a return? Yopu install it and find one switch does not work and two dials are also off center and cannot be calibrated. Unusable. Hopefully the return and refund goes flawlessly. My old X-52 was 11 years old which is why I went for the new model. Rumors of poor QC by new manufacturers MadKatz seem justified.

I researched many flight control systems and when I finally decided and bought the Saitek X52 Pro I couldn't be more pleased. It is everything I hoped for and more!!
The incredibly realistic feel to it makes it a joy to operate. Made out of heavy plastic and rubber, it is very durable. Every button, switch, and axis on it is completely customizable.
Before the X52 Pro I had a basic joystick and didn't think that getting the X52 Pro would make much difference if any, luckily I was wrong, because my simulator level jumped to whole different level.
In case anyone is wondering, I am running the X52 Pro on Windows 7 with no problems; however, I did download the windows 7 driver from the Saitek website.

This is the one. Get it. Period.

I started with the Logitech 3D Pro Joystick, and I liked it but I found myself limited by the number of buttons. I needed an upgrade...and thus the journey began.

I did some research, and it sounded like the X-52 Pro was a good bet, so I went into the store to pick one up. While there, the sales person talked me into "upgrading" to the X-55... It was awful - felt like a cheap plastic toy, was not smooth at all. Returned it the same day.

Then I read some reviews about people using the 3D pro (which I already had) along with the CH throttle, so I ordered one of those to give it a try. First off, it came broken, so it didn't even work...but I didn't really like the feel of it and the button placements. Returned it as well.

I was about to give up and just stick with my 3D Pro, but then I decided to finally give the X-52 Pro a try.

I wish I had just gone with it from the beginning like I was planning to. It feels much higher quality than the others I tried - many of the buttons are metal, and the ones that are plastic are high quality too. I was a little skeptical after reading reviews where people said it was lower quality...but compared to the others I've tried it is waaay better. Of course it is not a Warthog, but for the price it is amazing.

The stick is super smooth, with just enough resistance to make it not feel flimsy, but not too much to make it tiresome. The adjustable hand rest makes it fit my smaller hands perfectly. All the buttons are easily accessible, and I love the way the metal trigger feels. It clicks so satisfyingly.

The throttle is also smooth and I really like the indents.
