Hallo pilots using the X-52 !

I think I have found the best settings for the Saitek X-52 and the Saitek rudder pedals !

After searching and try a lot of settings like Olegs joystick settings and many other I got from this forum I am rather sure thet this are the best settings for FB/Pacific Fighters and the Saitek equipment.

at first the deadzone for all axis set to

For almost 3 years I flew my X-45 at full 100's across the board and was quite satisfied.

Tried the same with the X-52 and found myself twitching around like a meth addict being tazered.

I found a happy place using a curve with a small amount of deadzone and dampening. I liked my Ch pedals just as the game feeds the input default.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Even you set it at 100%. though the feeling on it can not compare with that on MS P2 with much less aggresive setting http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-sad.gif

I think you mean the MS Sidewinder2 FFB ??
I apply - it is a very very good stick with a very good feeling with less aggresive settings.

But I have many problems with my MS FFB because my hands are very large - like a Yeti/Allien in the winter. From the littlest finger to the thumb I have 25 cm at streching mode. But I think it is in the range of scale to my body heigh 1,92 meters and weight 104 kilos.

And I always have no feeling in my thumb after using the MS FFB about 1 hour. My thumb is dead......
If I played much longer with the MS FFB then an hour I can throw away my right hand.

Therefore I changed to Saitek. It is very good ( of course - I miss the FFB) and large enough for outstanding large hands like I have.

Hi Lehnert.

If you still have the Microsoft FFB2 stick and you want to sell it, I would gladly buy if it's working and can be used with 220 volt AC.

If you are interested in selling, PM me or page me on hyperlobby. My callsign is -=FA=-hamselv2

Hallo hamselv2,
Hello Jon,
thank you for your private Message.

Unfortunately there are two problems:

1) I am "german pilot" and my home is located overseas at Munic / Bavarian / Germany / Europe

2) About 4 month ago I have given my MS FFB away as a gift to my oldest "Enkel" ( I do not know the word in englisch) at his birthday - what means
to the oldest son of my first son and his wife.
Because I am 63 years old and have two sons and one daughter and they have some children.

Hi Lehnert

I've been using 100s across the board since just after I got my X52, anything less just felt sort of 'sloppy' to me. And that was after using a 5 year old Thrustmaster Afterburner with a fair bit of play in it.

Having said that I like the X52 a lot, just need to assign those rotaries (keep meaning to do it but usually can't be bothered and start flying instead!).

Enjoy your flying...<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Hallo Vacillator,

for myself I do not use the the rotaries at the throttle. After using it a short time I canceled them for use.
I think it does not work very good for trimming or prop pitch or engine management. I do not miss them.

But now I "love" my X-52 too.

I use these settings for pitch and roll and find them absolutely perfect:

I've been using them for trimming since i got my X-52 and i think i they work great for it.
I use the bigger wheel for elevator trimming and the small one for rudder. A little while ago i tinkered with the input curves of those two wheels (with the follow-up program of Il-2 Sticks by Oleg_BS, i forgot its name).
Since then i am fully satisfied with my X-52.
If you're interested i will post them when i get home. But be aware, it gets some time to get used to, just like with your rudder pedals.
BTW i am just now slowly getting used to them i got them aproximately the same time you got yours.

Klemm, I'm interested in your settings. I have Il2Joy (I think that's the name?) so should be able to do likewise once I've assigned them. I had read that they were a tad too sensitive for trim?<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

Since BOTH of the trimwheels of my X52 have stopped working properly a few months ago (potis are teh sukk), I am using my Logitech Momo FF Steeringwheel for elevator trim http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif. I mounted it under my desk, just where the elevator trimwheel would be in RL in a 109. It is very precise and I couldn't fly anymore without it.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">
