Saitek X52 Pro HOTAS Throttle Dies

Recommended Posts

I am running MSFS 2020 Ver 1.12.13 under W-10 

on a gaming computer...my X52 Pro is several years

old but is recognized by FS and I can configure it...

driver version is 8.0.213.0 (I believe)...the only 

problem is that when I try to increase throttle on an 

aircraft, the engine(s) die(s)...I think this problem began

recently and I can't find the solution...even reset the

X52 to its default settings in FS and that did not help...

nor did reinstalling the driver...

Any help appreciated...

John H.

Have you taken the two significant steps to disarm Windows Advanced Power Management for that Saitek device?

Mine did the same (I used only the HOTAS throttle, have separate yoke). Nothing I did helped and eventually I replaced the X52 throttle with a new Saitek throttle quadrant (all I could find).

Frank...I went to the control panel and found power

management there...it was currently on high

and changed it to normal...sadly, that did not 

solve the problem...

Did I do what you were recommending?...if not, could 

you please explain in more detail how to do what you recommend...

Thanks, John H.

I have the same setup. Since the last update, I have lost the twist rudder support and have had the throttle do exactly what yours is doing. Have no idea if the update even touched any of the control stuff, but my sim has been parked until the next update.

Hi all...I think I found an article that tells how to do what 

Frank suggested...it can be found here...

https://apteryx.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360041367673-Disable-USB-Power-Management-Selective-Suspension

Unfortunately, though trying all the steps, it did not cure the problem...

your mileage may vary...I am thinking that DF has nailed the problem..

the latest update from MS...I guess we can wait and see...my old XBox

controller still works, as does my new Logitech 3D Pro Extreme stick...

still I would like the X52 to work to compare to the 3D Pro...

Just a short update...I tried just by X52 throttle combined

with my Xbox controller...worked fine, though not the ideal 

combination...then I treid the X52 throttle with my new

Thrustmaster 1600m stick and had the same old problem...

I would really like to use my X52 throttle with my Thrustmaster, 

though the throttle on it works fine...
