Pros

Smooth control in games I play with it
Cons
Hard to program the rotary buttons, it can be done but it's not easy to do
Summary
This controller is definitely an upgrade from my Logitech wingman and has given me good satisfaction in the games I play, for a midrange priced HOTAS you can't go wrong with this.

Experience: 5 Days

Pros

Tons of buttons
Highly configurable
Cons
- Base has quite a large footprint
- Not a lot of available profiles so far
- Rhino software can be confusing
- Stick movement is somewhat 'sticky'
Summary
This is my first high end HOTAS set up and this was delivered quickly. I have been playing Elite Dangerous and the numerous key bindings possible may this an ideal companion. I found the spring set up out of the box to work fine and I have not experienced any clicking or grabbing of the flight stick in yaw or any other motion.

Pros

Tons of buttons, highly configurable,
Cons
Needs to be bolted down, software is horrible
Summary
This is a great stick, with bad software. Thankfully you do not need to use the software, unless you want to dim the lights.

For Elite Dangerous this HOTAS has you 100% covered. I have buttons left over after configuring everything in depth.

Pros

Lots of options and configurations available - customizable to your hearts content. Although it is primarily plastic it has pretty good weight and build quality. Comfortable grips.
Cons
Big foot print can be both a disadvantage and advantage depending on your set up. Non slip feet could be bigger to provide a little more traction. I fixed this by putting a small non slip mat under mine.
Summary
This is my first high end HOTAS set up and I have to say I have not been disappointed. I bought this days before xmas and it was delivered quickly. I have been playing Elite Dangerous and the numerous key bindings possible may this an ideal companion. I have not tried this set up with X-plane yet but I am not expecting to be disappointed. I found the spring set up out of the box to work fine and I have not experienced any clicking or grabbing of the flight stick in yaw or any other motion. I would definitely buy this again and unless you are really into sims and spend a lot of time every day I can not see a reason to spend $300 more for the next step up.

Pros

- Build quality is adequate
- Twist axis
- Rhino software allows for extensive customization
Cons
- Base has quite a large footprint
- Not a lot of available profiles so far
- Rhino software can be confusing
- Stick movement is somewhat 'sticky'
Summary
The unit I received earlier this week had some greasy substance on both the stick and throttle unit (probably dry PTFE lubricant) but it was really easy to clean-off.

Build quality appears to be good (maybe not quite there with the Warthog) but I was expecting a lot worst based on early reviews of the product.

I haven't had any 'ghost button issue' but I'm following Mad Catz recommendation here: http://support.madcatz.com/Knowledgebase/Article/View/518/176/x-55-ghost-button-issue).

The stick is comfortable for long game-play sessions but will show fingerprints easily and it is somewhat 'sticky' (it required a bit of force to move from the centre).

Features:

Military-grade Flight Sim Precision

Inspired by controls found within actual fighter planes, the next-gen X-55 Rhino H.O.T.A.S. System for PC provides utmost control over simulated aircraft. Built to the same exacting standards of Saitek's award-winning Pro Flight accessories range, the X-55 Rhino delivers a multitude of customizable options never before seen in an H.O.T.A.S. System. Whether flying a modern fighter, single- or multi-engine aircraft, or even a retro single-seat plane, the X-55 Rhino supplies all the control surface options required to achieve the exact level of aerial performance aspiring pilots demand.

Enhanced Stick Accuracy

During virtual flight - just like true flight - the accuracy of an aircraft's control surfaces is of paramount importance. The X-55 Rhino's control surfaces are incredibly accurate, courtesy of an all-new 16-bit aileron and a 16-bit elevator axis, each employing hall-effect sensors. Developed from the ground up, Saitek's 16-bit axis solution enables extremely precise flight.

Comment: Both the stick and throttle quadrant have a nice F.E.E.L. to them and with the rubberized coating, even better. Ergonomically, I found that each HAT, button, and axis easy to get to and manipulate on both the stick and throttle handles. The amount of switches, toggles, rotaries, buttons, and HATs
