View Full Version : X52 light weight

hey guys, I just picked up a X52 from Circuit City. I was surprised how light the controllers are. And the tension adjusting knob on the throttle does not seem to work at all. However I turn the knob, the throttle is stiff and not smooth at all. Guess I got a lemon on the throttle issue. But are your X52 also light weighted? I thought I saw someone mention this thing was heavy...

My X52 is the same as yours. The tension Knob doesn't do much and the thing is light. However, as long as you stick it down on a smooth surface (I use an old chess board) it wont move around, the suction cups work quite well. You could always use some long screws through the holes at the corners, but I've never found the need.

I've had mine for over 2 years and I'm still happy with it, it is a good stick.

Be sure to set your input curves in the game to all 100% for pitch and roll, took me a long time to figure that out.
