Saitek X52 Pro Flight System
The Saitek X52 Pro Flight System is a comfortable and versatile flight system controller, compatible with a wide variety of products. Well suited for flight simulators as well as games such as Arma 3 or World of Warplanes, this USB controller features a stick and throttle customizable to your grip and needs.
The stick is set with a dual-spring centering mechanism to help return to neutral when not in use, and the stick becomes more resistant as it pulls away from center. In addition, it offers a nice adjustable grip for maximum comfort during long flights.
One of the things we really loved about this controller was the multifunction LCD display found on the throttle. A backlight offers some nice gameplay even in dimly lit situations, and the MFD allows you to view more information about your button configuration. The backlight is adjustable too! That’s handy. More advanced users may want to install the Software Development Kit to create their own display functions.
The X52 Pro Flight System can be found for around $130-160. With some light configuration, you’ll be flying with the very best in games like Elite Dangerous!
I especially look forward to the release of Star Citizen which this setup would be ideal for and hopefully this will launch a new era of flight sims as this is a great control that will handle all your flight game needs with style.
