Please note, I'm writing this from the perspective of someone who used the Saitek X45 for 4 years, so most notes are comparing it, the X52 Pro, and the X52 standard. I get rather nitpicky about individual features, so for those interested in the bottom line, you can skip most of this, and just read the last paragraph. :)

Compared with the standard X52, the X52 Pro is indeed a significant improvement. All extra functionality of the multi-function display aside, the quality is simply higher. However, I'm still very surprised that so many steps back were taken from the old X45.

Compared with the original X52, the spring tension in the stick of the X52 Pro is a great improvement. I remember being very disappointed in the X52 when I picked up a display model, and the weak spring allowed the stick to fall over under it's own weight. The X52 Pro added a second centering spring to help, and it is much better, but still rather weak compared with the X45, which had a massive spring.

Also, as with the standard X52, the X45's rudder rocker switch is gone, replaced by the twisty stick. Now, I do understand this, since it is a common practice in joystick design now.. however, I have never seen an aircraft with this feature, and if realism is the goal, you'll need rudder pedals. The rocker always has felt more intuitive to me.

I think my largest disappointment in this stick, and the standard X52, is the new style for the dials on the throttle. In order to install the buttons in the centers of the dials, they had to sacrifice the quality of the dials themselves. The X45 had wonderful dials, with a smooth rotation range of about 300 degrees around the circle, and a great feel. The new style on the X52s is terrible by comparison.

I bought one of these to replace my Sidewinder 2, I wanted something nice for Elite:Dangerous, and Star Citizen. I am very happy with it. From what I gather, there are better sticks, but the price ramps up considerably. This set up is perfect for the price.

Pros - Smooth, and precise control, feels like you got your money's worth. Lots, and lots of customization with the software. Lots of buttons and hats to keep me keyboard-free in Elite:Dangerous. Programmable LEDs.

Cons - Suction cups could be better. Could use a bit more weight.

The pros here outweigh the cons imo. If you're looking for something to play Elite with, this is an excellent option, if you can spare the cash.

I ordered the Pro with some reluctance having owned the original X-52. My brother also had one of the originals that lasted barely over a year. The spring tension was way too light with the original and there is a problem with the throttle losing calibration and that is exactly what happened to mine and my brothers.

After a couple of good recommendations from some guys I fly with online I decided to go ahead and get the X52 Pro. I must say that I am very pleased with it so far. The spring tesnion is much better (has dual springs) and the optical pots make for much smoother movement in game. It is also more ruggedly built than the original.

Pro's:

-Has Vista 64 bit Programming software available
-Can customize the LED colors (does not include the MFD)
-Has better MFD Options
-Sturdier with better spring tension
-Has a module that allows control of the radio stack in FSX with MFD Rotaries
-Has a nicer task bar interface
-Slider is 100x better than the original which was crap & would never calibrate

Con's:

-The programming software is not as intuive as previous versions. It is not visual and you cannot click a button on the stick and have it be selected in the programming software as before.
-Rotaries are a bit tough to move precisely. Takes more force.
-The rotary wheels at the MFD only work with the FSX Mod. Can't seem to get them to work in anything else.
-Throttle detents are a bit overdone & if you are trying to make fine adjustments at 10% & 20% it can be a bit tough at times. This is even the the friction backed off all of the way.
-Still can't do a calibrate function.

I bought this flight stick along with a Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals, as a replacement to my older Saitek X45.

Some misfortunes or bugs with previous versions, the Saitek X45 had a very stiff spring within the joystick causing significant problems. Also, the X45 suffered a loose connection on the throttle controller connector to the joystick, and had to resplice the cable. The Saitek X36 only had 32 bit drivers, but there are open source drivers with the additional bug of not being Signed Drivers, causing boot problems with later versions of MS Windows. These previous controllers had the wonderful embedded rudder within the throttle.

So far, I am extremely impressed by the quality of workmanship after just a few hours! Initially, I thought this was going be another plastic toy I was going to live to regret purchasing.

Linux Driver: joystick
Windows Driver: Windows Update and Saitek Website. Both, Windows Update and the Saitek Website drivers are the same.

Pros:
1) The colors and lighting are very conservative. As opposed to the color of the X45 looking like a toy from a childs' toy boxes. (NOTE: Many of the photos of this joystick on the Internet, have the LED's at maximum brightness. It is far more likely common to significantly reduce the brightness within the driver settings.)
2) The main joystick spring is much lighter than the X45, fixing the previously mentioned bug.
