Can things get better or is this the ultimate H.O.T.A.S (Hands On Throttle-And-Stick) from Saitek (Logitech)? Now, this is the ultimate combination, but you never know what will happen in the future.

Your personal reporter Angelique van Campen had the opportunity to test the Saitek X-56 Rhino HOTAS unit. And was it worth the writing and testing or ….? According to Angelique “I’m impressed about the integration of the X-56 Rhino hardware with Laminar Research X-Plane for Windows 10 Professional and macOS Sierra. And yes, the X-56 works quite well with X-Plane on a Mac although there’s no Saitek software available for this OS.”

But there’s more “Now we have the X-56 Rhino H.O.T.A.S. and the developer behind this new product, has done it again. Yes, they did it again since the X-56 can provide difference force feedback depending on the spring you install. Yes, you read it right! You can change the force to move the stick by changing the internal springs or you can even decide not to install any spring.”

Curious to the rest? Then Angelique warns you in advance … relax, take a coffee, tea or something else and enjoy her comprehensive X-56 Rhino HOTAS review.
