Saitek ProFlight X-65F HOTAS Combat Control System
The Saitek ProFlight X-65F HOTAS (Hands on Throttle and Stick) Control System. Custom engineered from high grade metal castings, this is a system that is built to withstand many combat engagements. The number of controls available will cater for any pilot’s needs, but the true innovation resides within the stick itself – Force Sensing technology.
What is Force Sensing?
In a world first for a manufactured simulation controller, the X-65F’s stick does not move; instead, like those found in real modern fighter jets, it responds to pressure that you exert on the handle, resulting in a fast, accurate and realistic response that will make you the ace in your squadron. With no moving parts and a shaft that is made from high grade steel, this provides incredible reliability and longevity.
Metal construction for the ultimate in realism and durability
Unique force sensing stick – all input is detected from how hard you push on the stick, just like in real modern day jet fighters. This includes a force-sensing twist rudder control
Features on-the-fly adjustment of the force settings for the stick – including separate adjustments for each axis of the stick for the ultimate in stick response configuration.
Dual throttle for finer control over twin engine jets, or lock the two throttles together for single engine fighters
