Slight problem with Saitek X52

Over the last couple of day's I've had the annoying problem with this wonder joystick. When ever I load the sim the rudder always want's to turn to the left. It's a pain in the.... when I try and taxi. flying is even worse.

I have even had this problem on Windows XP 64bit Version. Yesterday I went back to the 32bit version of windows and still have this problem. I have downloaded the latest drivers from there homepage and the latest SST programming software. I even installed the FS2004 profile that was on there website and still no joy.

Has anyone come across this problem before?

Yeah check out the thumb slider on the throttle. do a calibration and see if one of the sliders or twist action is out.

I've had that problem twice, annoyed the heck out of me, one time it just went away when I took off, lucky it didn't pull to the right during take off or something bad could've happen. Second time it wouldn't go away, so I just unplugged the USB cord and plugged it back in, worked fine.

well I tried both of thoes ways but it still wouldent work so I went in and changed the dreadzones, what it happining on mine atleast is simply that the rudder twist is slightly off and so when your taxing it effects it when I changed the deadzones I just made it so that I had to turn it a little more that normal to get it to turn fixed it up just fine for me and hasent been a prob sence
