X52 Professional H.O.T.A.S. is a fully integrated hands on throttle and stick flight controller. It’s specific purpose is to meet or exceed the demands of the best space and flight simulator pilots.
X52 Professional takes all the standout features from the original X52 to the next level. And, we didn’t stop there. Upgraded multi-function LCD shows in-game data in real-time, new precision dual-spring centering mechanism features a metal cone, and an all-new look is adorned with refined materials to go that extra mile.
Illuminated critical buttons on the stick and throttle let you know where to press when time is of the essence. Enhanced LCD display, with adjustable backlighting, gives you information about your button configurations at-a-glance, plus a new ability to view and interact with in-game radio stack information with the most popular flight simulator titles, like FSX, X-Plane, Prepar3D.
A highly accurate centering mechanism ensures the joystick will easily return to the neutral position after you let go. Non-contact technology on the X and Y axes enhance control while increasing durability. And, the stick becomes more resistant as it moves farther away from the center position.
The throttle unit's progressive functionality improves aircraft response. Detents (physical markings indicating where a certain action activates) simplify control of your craft’s idle, afterburners and reverse thrusters. Yet another customizable feature found on X52 Pro, a tension adjustment dial lets you change the throttle's resistance to suit the way you fly.
The joystick's twist rudder controls add another dimension of command to simulated flight. If you prefer more traditional control, a rudder lock switch disables the twist capabilities and confines input to the X and Y axes – ideal for use with Logitech G Flight Rudder Pedals (sold separately)
A five-position handle adjustment system conforms to your grip style and hand size. And to promote maximum comfort during epic flights, the joystick's handle also features contours which harmonize with your digits.
Downloadable software lets you create custom profiles for your space and flight sims. Three mode settings and a pinkie switch provide enhanced programming options for even more control for all 7 axes, 3 HATs, mouse micro stick and 19 programmable buttons, with programmable tri-state LED color for each button. And for power users, a downloadable Software Development Kit allows you to create your own interactions for the multi-function LCD display.
