Question about Saitek (PS28) Joystick, Throttle
Have the same problem with my X52; cant get the rudder control (twisting control) work fine, but it goes on its own way to the right and can't be calibrated no way. this is my 3rd SAITEK X52 (2 X52PRO, 1 X52), and all I can say is: SAITEK IS THE WORST **** I EVER HAD IN MY LIFE.

Calibration is not really something the Saitek X52 needs: there are no "resistors" or "swipers" that need to be adjusted over time. The axis sensors are Hall effect sensors, with no moving parts, and thus the "center" state of each axis is digitally controlled. Such noise is caused by loose ps2 connectors, bent pins, sloppy usb contact, etc.
That said, errors or jitters in the centering of the stick is now in the realm of "electronic noise" interfering with the control system. The computer reads the inputs (even the noise/static) as control inputs, and adjusts the stick position on the fly.
Now if its a windows10 problem, that started only after upgrading, that's a whole other story (I know how to fix it as well- reply if this is the case)
