With as much trouble I'm having with my X52, I really wish I had 60 bucks just laying around.   :cry

Dragon:

1> Turn all of the LED's off in the control panel
2> Make sure the cable between stick and throttle is fully seated
3> Consider getting a powered USB hub

1. I have them almost as dim as they get, but not off
2. cable is the main problem, I already know this, just haven't been able to get a new one
3. been considered, just not $ feasible at this time.

I have a second X52 in the house that I used for 4 years and gave it to SWkiljoy.  Bought new one for me.  Never, I mean never had a problem with the old one.  New one was buggy right out of the box, returned to Worst Buy under warranty.  Replacement, which I didn't get the warranty on, got uber crappy after about 60 days.  Now it sits on my desk with the screws removed so when the stick freaks out and it isn't the cable, I can quickly tweak the sensors and wires and get back to my flight.

It's latest incarnation of F chef is to go full left turn the moment I get lined up for a shot.  I mean without fail the other night, just get settled 6 o'clock, 600 out and closing, almost pull trigger, and whoosh, full left turn, WTF??  Happened about 9 times so I know it wasn't a fluke.

Dunno if it will help ya Dragon, but I"ve a spare joystick to throttle cable for an x52 - gave my old stick to someone ingame, but he didnt need the cable.

It's all unrealistic crap requested by people who want pie in the sky actions performed without an understanding of how things work and who can't grasp reality.

Would my X52 throttle still work with this?  Ive a ways wanted to try CH gear,and having a couple extra flight sticks around isnt a bad idea.

yes the throttle will still work.  The CH stuff isn't twisty though so you will need pedals or some other input for rudder.
