Saitek X-52 mod

I stumbled upon a very simple tweak for Saitek X-52 or Saitek X-52 Pro. Will try it once I get the magnets and report the results. My X-52 works just fine but has a bit of a dedzone in the center, this might help substantially.

Re: Any throttle recommendations?

Of course, the fit depends on the user so it does not have to be your cup of tea. I cannot compare the Pro version with the 2007 edition as I never tried the old one, but to me the pro is fairly ergonomic and has a nice soft-touch feel and solid bases readily designed for mounting. If I had few more...

Re: Any throttle recommendations?

If still relevant and you are looking for a HOTAS combo replacement in the future, I can recommend the X-52 Pro. The pricing is reasonable, there are plenty of controls on both throttle and stick and the stick has hall sensor which is nice.

Is anyone who uses the 3d Migoto mod willing to share what settings they use in it? I have it, but have never really set it up, wondering if it may help me with spotting and so on.

Re: Is there a better, more HOTAS sensitive joystick?

Since my trustworthy T-Flight HOTAS X that served me well for past seven years starts to show its age (ghost stick wiggling, probably due to the wear on potentiometers), I am considering an upgrade for a bit advanced, mid-to-higher-tier stick probably in late June when I will (hopefully) definitelly...

Re: Flight controls - re convo on WhatsApp

@Silk, damn, that's very unfortunate. @Gosho, Definitely will do, I just remembered we have it in the bottom of some of our kitchen drawers, must have a look whether there are any leftovers. If not, IKEA visit with obligatory meatballs dinner stop it is. On the taxiing note - some guides suggest swi...

Re: Flight controls - re convo on WhatsApp

I would not expect myself to write a purchase update so early, but on Tuesday I got extremely lucky. There was a guy on a DCS facebook group who was advertising an used TrackIR with Track Clip Pro for about one quarter of the original price when these were sold by retails back in early 2010's (about...

Re: Flight controls - re convo on WhatsApp

Nice build, Silk. As I mentioned, I am considering the whole TFRP kit to buy when my trustworthy Hotas X says goodbye. But damn, the Gladiator looks fancy!

I read few reviews where people were a bit skeptical regarding the ruggedness and toughness of the Thrustmaster pedals. What is your experience?
