Saitek X52 Unboxing and Opinion
After going through a no-name stick, Thrustmaster T16000M, Thrustmaster Warthog, I tried the X52 and after a couple of months with it, will be moving on again. I just can’t do it anymore.
It doesn’t feel as good (precise) as the T16000M and the indents in the throttle (which require dis-assembly to fix) are just idiotic as a default feature – for me. Sigh. I would try the X52 Pro, but there’s enough bad things about the X52 standard for me to be scared off trying…
Note: The indents in the throttle are realistic for flight sims, but the fact that the throttle lifts off the desk because of them – and that they are impossible to remove without dis-assembly – means they’re a huge problem for space sims needing 0% and 100% throttle access.
