Saitek X52 pro . Any good?

Postby [KH]Padsaw on Wed Jul 23, 2014 6:42 pm

Hi chaps asking for advice on joysticks and before you say anything Grindy I cant afford £270+ on one you lucky bugger !!!!!!. Been thinking of Saitek x52 pro ,Saitek x55 (more than I really want to pay but if its good may be) or Thrustmaster T flight hotas or any other suggestions . Want to play DCS A10c and Arma with it. Any good or bad experiences ?
Thanks,
Padsaw .

Saitek x52 vs x52 Pro differences
1. Tri-state LEDs (which are also accessible by the SDK)
2. Dual spring centering mechanism - provides incremental stiffness as you move the stick away from centre
3. Dual hall effect sensors for increased accuracy of the stick axes
4. Metal shaft and centering mechanism for increased durability (very important)
5. Selected metal parts (very important)


But Saitek X-55 Rhino new generation looks very nice loots of buttons

But why bought saitek ?
1:)Very solid
2:)Because saitek have useful software Saitek Profile Editor is supporting two many games, users share profiles complex games DCS etc..
3:)Driver support x64 x86 different OS

İ'm prefer Saitek x52 Pro or x55 Rhino
