Lots of people has buy the Saitek X52, and Im also a Saitek fan.
But my problem is going from my (beleave it or not) Saitek x35T/x36F, to a neew one.
I have a good feeling with my rudder on the throttle, and thats why im looking at Saitek x45 because of this having the rudder in left side on throttle.
But offcause, im also thinking X52 is the neew one, and in that strange way should be the one.
So to my qustion:
Is there any one, who has tryed both saitek, I mean with rudder in throttle, and rudder in stick? and if yes, please tell me what feels best.
I have used both and my personal preference is the X52, smoother action, i always felt i was fighting against the spring on the X45.
For me the twist rudder action is easier to use but that is obviously a personal preference.
I agree with Meaks as i have had both and find the twist for the rudder on the X52 so much more natural than the the X45 and the rocker on the X45 wears very quickly!
My personal choice would be for the X52 stick
Review: Saitek X52 HOTAS in Sim HQ:
“I almost didn’t buy the X52 because it’s a “twisty” stick. I hate twisty sticks, as I’m so ham handed that I unintentionally make rudder movements exactly when I don’t want to. The joystick has a little tab one can pull out to lock the stick in place! Very cool. That one feature ensured it would come home with me from the store.”
Someone forgot to mention this eeeh
so X52 is next on my list
hej toto , hvordan har du det min ven ? i use the x 45 and find the rudder on the throttle a bit awkward when on full throttle , that is why i went and got some ch peddals ,i used to have a twist ms sidewinder and i found it quite easy to use untill i built a set of wooden rudder peddals then i was hooked
hej toto , hvordan har du det min ven ?
Damn Im good to understand them Bravehearts, maybe Mings right, I am from Scotland
Thx for the backfeed Alan, Im very keen on Pedals, and think this would be the way to fly, only have to get the cash floowing first
untill i built a set of wooden rudder peddals

Da vinci code, or is it me who is getting drunk :laugh:
in case of katolic readers, I don’t wanna translate this
But please link me
Rocker everytime, twist sticks are horrible
That said, rudder pedals are the way to go
I still have an X36 and it’s going to need replacing soon as it’s getting just a little too sloppy around the middle, waiting to see if those pictures of the new styled x52 pan out
Heres the new one, dont like the throttle position
here’s the link toto , the ones i made are the second ones down , any problems just gimme a shout min ven
