Pros and cons
- Both the joystick and the throttle’s resistance are adjustable
- Control your rudder pedals with your joystick thanks to the 3D-twist function
- The X56 has an endless amount of programmable buttons
- Because of its size it can be hard to reach the buttons if you have small hands
Hands on Throttle and Stick
The Logitech X56 HOTAS is the X55 Rhino’s successor and is inspired by the H.O.T.A.S. (Hands on Throttle and Stick) systems you see in fighter aircrafts. The stick has 16-bit sensors on its axes, and they detect the smallest changes in the stick’s position, meaning you can fly extremely accurately (with military precision). The throttle can be used for single-engine and twin-engine aircrafts.
The Logitech X56 comes with four different springs which determine the joystick’s resistance. This allows you to choose, for the best flying experience! The same goes for the throttle, of which the resistance is adjustable.
Have full control over the Saitek X-56
You can have full control over the Saitek X56 H.O.T.A.S. using the included software. Set the dead zones and movement curve however you like. In addition, this software allows you to set up all the buttons, under which the seven 3-way switches and 2 knobs.
Also suitable for space simulation
Space simulation games such as Star Citizen and Elite Dangerous have become increasingly popular. By adding an extra analog stick on the front, which gives you more movement options in the simulation, Logitech responds to this in a clever way. In addition, this stick has customizable RGB lightning to give color to your spacecraft.
