Calling all saitek X52-users. Just got mine, got tullys profile to work (more or less, I still lower gear more than I shoot .. but hey)
Only thing is my stick seems way sensitive. I stall more than is healthy for a normal noob. So, what numbers do you x52 guys use in your config?

I actually don't find it sensitive enough. I run at almost all 100s in the config AND chopped 25% off the stick throw to tighten it up.

You may be confusing sensitivity with stick forces. The forces on an X52 are very light compared to most other sticks and really take some getting used to. They're very easy to over control at first. Give it a week or so and see if things don't improve all on their own.

And a Merry Christmas to you,

I found the X52 overly sensitive too, even very slight movements of the stick resulting in a stall or other unwanted behavior. I played with the settings extensively and eventually solved the issue by throwing the stick in the closet and getting a CH Fighterstick. The Saitek throttle worked well, but now that's beginning to fail.

I use the default settings with no problems. HOWEVER, if you are experiencing the bouncy up/down can't shoot a darn thing, make sure that in the config.ini file, the z line ends in a 0 (all three should: x y and z) but with the latest patch for whatever reason the z axis ended in 100 instead of 100 0.

X=0 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 100 0
Y=0 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 100 0
Z=0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 0
RZ=0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 0
FF=0
U=0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 0
V=0 10 20 30 40 50 60 70 80 90 100 0

I've just changed my settings in the config file, and its made the world of differance and improved my flying. So thanks Voyager for some top info. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

I wish it could be made stiffer to move about

It can be made to have greater resistance easily enough. Replace the centering spring with a stiffer one. If that's more than you want to tackle, I know that some people have made spacers to compress the spring, which will add resistance.

I think compressing the spring would decrease the resistance of the X52. I remeber seeing on a forum (I forget which one,) where people were complaining that the X-45 had TOO MUCH resistance and the soulution for that was compressing the spring with wire ties.

I have an X52 and I felt like it was too loose at first. After using it for a while, now I like it.

The centering of the stick on an x52, or an x45 for that matter is accomplished by the use of a spring between the stick base and stick handle. If you "pre-compress" it with tie wires, you would be relieving the sping tension against the stick handle. If you compressed the spring by inserting a spacer between the stick and base along with the sping, you be increasing the spring tension. Two competely different things.

Just got my X-52 yesterday...I'm still very much getting used to it. I'm overcontrolling alot and when I'm not overcontrolling I'm under controlling.

Just don't have it right yet.

Hey all, I have the older X45 stick with CH pro pedals. On my setup, the pitch control is too touchy, can't seem to get fine control movements for shooting. Kinda like playing a console game after years of using a mouse ;-) movements all over just trying to aim. It would have been nice if they had a "screw" adjustment at the base of the stick so you could 'dial' in the pre-tension... The throttle has a screw on the bottom for this... Oh well. I'm still messing with the config settings to fine tune it. I know some of it is the sim becuase other sims aren't as touchy...

I tried the x52 and the Evo at a store,a and felt it was a bit "light", though the tick was not connected to any computer, it had something about it. Now I have my Old Logitech extreme 3d pro (really hard to control). Does it take long time to get used to the Evo or x52?

I'm using a Logi freedom 2.4 cordless stick. The plane is going all kind of directions even when i hold my stick still. When i check the movemet in DXTweak2 it registers to the slightest of movemet in all directions. The movemet aren't consistent either, it moves all directions for slight movement of the stick in one direction. So I'm wondering if anybody know of a filter that filters out the joystick movement so they register smooth instead of jerky like they are now? I tried to change the sensitivity to what's recommended earlier in this thread but it only helped slightly.

EDIT: Hehe, it seems like there's a filter function in the game itself. It made the handling a bit better, but now it seems that there are some controller lag.
