Setting Up Saitek X52 buttons in FSX

Author Message

Posted: Thu Oct 13, 2016 2:25 am 

I have FSX with FSX Acceleration installed on Win7 Home. When I try to set up which buttons do what in the FSX program, the list of options seems incomplete. For instance, I can't find reverse thrust in the list so I can assign a button for it. Also, I cannot seem to get the right thumb buttons (black one and 2 round ones) to do what I want. When I had Windows XP, I installed the Saitek program that came with the controller and set up the buttons from there, but it won't work on Win7 . Any ideas?

See if this is of any help.

If not look at the driver page and see if they have newer ones then came with your stick.
