Saitek X52 Flight Control
Best Flight Stick in the WORLD!
I bought this flight stick for use with MS X Flight Sim. I had been playing with a Logitech joystick, and thought it was great. Then I got my Saitek home and installed, and only then did I know the joy of flying a flight sim like REAL! The seperate throttle can stay with the joystick, or be moved anywhere you want, unlike other flight sticks with throttles. The stick itself has more than a dozen switches for you to map to functions in the game. Saitek still provides updated drivers, even for Win7. This was the joystick purchase I, or anyone, could ever make. If you want a Flight Sim 'Pro' grade joystick controller, this IS the one to go with, PERIOD.
this joystick is poor designed, within the first 12 hrs i bent one of the pins on the flight stick because it keeps falling out, i'm vary careful not to bend pins something i have tired to do for the past 27 years,i don't like to wait for new cord. if the cord would lock in so it would not fall out so much be good. my second problem is when i go to config my controller on "lock on " it tells me button 32 and 31 are being pushed. which is not true i don't know if this is a software problem. the main software also has never ran without freezing after i start it. don't buy this save your money
