    Saitek X-52 Dead Flightstick

    X-52 Stick crapped out. Throttle works fine.
    The stick base goes to the throttle base via a ps2 cable. I thought at first that the ps2 connectors were working like shit, but I tried to do a Bypass and connect the PS2 sub-cables directly to the terminal, with no success.

    Anybody got expereince in dealing with this?
    I'm afraid I might have to step down for a while before I get a new stick. The best part about that is that a new X52 costs about USD350 around this parts.
    ...A don't get me started with the Warthog, it sits comfortably at a price of USD950

    Damn, that sucks Kimi. Can't believe the mark up and/or shipping there. x52 is like $150 next day delivery here.

    Still got an old X-52 laying around here. How much is shipping from Belgium to the jungle?

    It' probably not that much, like USD70. But the problem here is that it's not legal to import used stuff.
    Actually it's illegal to buy and import, but just having it sent is legal. I'll search for more info.


    I have a Saitek AV8R-03, but figuring out how to do HOTAS with macros will be a pain in the ass.
