Saitek X52 Pro Flight Controller System Joystick

Any opinion on this? Is it worth getting?
I got the Logitech Extreme 3D Pro atm, but I feel it is a little annoying that it is so stale.

Saitek makes good entry level HOTAS systems, it’s a good buy.

What’s your budget like? Might be worth getting a cheaper stick and spending the rest on TrackIR, if you don’t already have it. Sort of depends on what peripherals you already have and what kind of flying experience you want, I suppose. And JayC is right, the X52 is a good beginner Hotas with plenty of buttons.


There really isn’t anything cheaper worth getting unless you go the used route.

I want to wait with the trackID things and instead just buy the Oculus rift when it comes out. :slight_smile:

I am thinking something around a $300 budget.

Good entry HOTAS. Recommendable to anyone with a tight budget and/or not ready yet to make a big investment.

If you want to spend $50 more on a Hotas, you can get the new X-55 RHINO for $200. It’s similar to the X-52 Pro but with more buttons and features. I have one and it’s not a bad stick.
