Ever wanted to fly? Well, you can -- without leaving your house. Just connect a X52 Pro joystick to a flight simulation game, such as FSX. The X52 Pro emulates the controls of an aircraft, adding realism to your gaming experience. FSX, sometimes referred to as Flight Simulator X, is the 10th instalment of Microsoft's Flight Simulator series. X52 Pro was designed to be compatible for game play with FSX. However, you have to configure the joystick in FSX for it to work properly.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Plug in your X52 Pro joystick to an available USB port on your computer.

  2. 2

    Double-click the "Flight Simulator X" icon.

  3. 3

    Press "Options > Settings," select "Controls." Select "Joystick Axis." If you want to change a command, press the appropriate button on the X52 Pro. Press "OK" when you are finished configuring your joystick.

  4. 4

    Press "Back" to go to a screen called "Controls." Press the "Button/Keys" tab. You will see the FSX aircraft controls. Double-click one of the commands to change the configuration by pressing the appropriate button on the X52 Pro. Click "OK" to finish configuration.
