  • Hello,

    I'm working hard on the quanum V52 and saitek x56. Can someone tell me how to connect each other
    and replace de saitek x52 included in quanum V52

  • Good information although I also am not sure that the flight controller paradigm is really ideal for actual UAV flying either.

    I had one of the original Saitek setups including control pedals and it was great for fixed wing flight simulation, did may hours of practice in flight simulator and definitely made getting my private pilots license easier.

    However, that is a fixed wing paradigm and not the same as  flying a multicopter and the controls are nothing like a helicopter.

    I would think as Rob says above the control paradigm might well be problematic at least for multis and helis.

    Might work OK for fixed wing though.

    (Too bad to hear that Saitek's quality has deteriorated, my old ones are very well constructed and still work fine).

  • Knowing the quality of Saitek's hardware since they've been bought by MadCatz, I'd hesitate to buy this ground station.

    They seem to have a really bad quality check.

  • 3D Twist with Rudder Lock

    The joystick's twist rudder controls add another dimension of command to simulated flight. If you prefer more traditional control, a rudder lock switch disables the twist capabilities and confines input to the X and Y axes – ideal for use with Saitek Pro Flight Rudder Pedals (sold separately).

  • I would still prefer my 16 channel frsky taranis. it is so easy to manipulate.

  • I saw that yesterday, and it's interesting. Not sure how they're controlling yaw though.  Having to connect a set of rudder pedals would be really annoying.  I'm betting that joystick is a 3-axis with a twist for yaw.  I've tried using that, and it's really terrible.  When you push pitch or roll, it's really hard not to yaw inadvertently.
