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: Feldwebel Fritz leaves Kalach

Iā€™m not up to scratch on your background, did you fly F/A 18ā€™s for real or in another virtual squadron? Oh no... I've never flown a real F/A-18. It was with Jane's F/A-18E years ago with a Virtual Navy I was a member of. We had a collection of 4 squadrons (2 of Janes F18, 2 of Falcon 4.0) and did a...
