I have one, if you want.

But it won't work without TrackIR and you will need to remap most of your keyboard commands http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

Check out this (http://forums.ubi.com/eve/forums/a/tpc/f/26310365/m/5581083643)thread. Scroll down to the bottom of the first post. There is a link to an X-52 profile there.

I have one I use without trackIR, but you'd still need to remap almost all of your keyboard commands to use it.

I used the throttle slider to adjust FOV in 11 increments... but I needed to remap all the number keys to pull it off. There are a few other things like that, so my keyboard setup is almost nothing like standard.

You can grab it at

if you want it anyway. Right-click, "save as".

I have X52 and CH Pro Pedals. Bearing in mind that I like to fly full realistic with no padlock but with External view as the only exception, you may or may not want to set it up this way but at least this may give you some useful suggestions.
The first thing I do is make a list of all Keyboard functions that I want to map for my X52 and Pedals. Then, not only do I program the User Defined functions that I am going to want, I clear all the Keyboard functions that I am not intending to use so that a controller input will not cause something else to happen, and the controls screen will be cleaner and easier to spot things I€ve missed latter. At the bottom of the Controls screen, I program the HOTAS Control;

Rudder Z Axis
Brakes X Axis

Engage Rudder twist lock.
Elevator Y Axis ID2
Aileron X Axis ID2
Throttle -Z Axis ID2
Flaps -U Axis ID2 [Precision Slide]
Elevator Trim -X Axis ID2 [Rotary 1]
Prop Pitch -Y Axis ID2 [Rotary 2]

Next, I take my list of Keystrokes and functions and open the X52 Profile editor and begin programming;

Control Stick:
Trigger / Second Trigger Weapon 1 and 2 respectively
Fire with Safe guard Bail Out!
Fire A Map
Fire B Pilot View / Gunner View [with pinkie]
Fire C Gun sight View / Normal View [with Pinkie]
POV Hat 1 Assigned 8 positions for quick views like around number pad
And [with pinkie] - Communications numbers
POV Hat 2 Assigned 4 positions for a variety of views such as, Cockpit, External, Chase,
Normal, Wide.
Mostly assigned preflight functions like Speed bar, Canopy, Wing Fold, Chocks, Pause, and is also great for pumping Gear up and down manually.

Throttle Quadrant:
Fire D WEP / Cowl Flaps [with pinkie]
Fire E Air Brake / Reticle dimmer [with pinkie]
Ministick X and Y Set on full sensitivity. Used for POV look around.
Mouse button 1 Gunner Trigger
Mouse Scroll Down Decrease Mixture / Auto Mixture
Mouse Scroll Up Increase Mixture / Auto Mixture
POV Hat 3 Assigned 4 positions, Engine Start, Gear Up / Down, Cockpit Lights, Landing Lights.

The best part of all, I can modify it any time I want! I thought I would tear my hair out learning how to program it because the instructions were for like the X45 and I€m not too swift anyway, but once I got the hang of it, it€s not all that hard. I too would like to hear some profile ideas and comments from the community.
