A ground-breaking, adjustable stick spring system allows pilots to alter the force required to move the stick. Four springs of varying resistance are included to provide a total of five different options. Choose the spring – or no spring at all – which best accommodates your style of flying.

Saitek's new software provides the ability to completely customize all of the X-55 Rhino's axes and buttons. On the axis side, you can adjust deadbands and response curves to fine-tune axis to respond just like an aircraft's real-life counterparts. On the buttons and toggle side, you can assign any number of in-sim directives, such as speed brake, flares, target lock or pick weapon.

The X-55 Rhino's stick and throttle units each utilize their own separate USB connection, offering greater flexibility during customization. You are free to situate the controls exactly where you want them, without them being tethered to each other.

Using a twin-engine throttle controller is the only suitable method for manipulating a virtual twin-engine aircraft. The X-55 Rhino boasts such twin throttles and also provides the option to adjust the friction required to move them. If your aircraft of choice is single-engine, a handy throttle lock effectively converts the twin throttles into a single unit.

Flight sim accessories used by today's virtual pilots require the highest level of control and customization. The X-55 Rhino includes additional realistic toggles and rotaries, orientated around the throttle base. Seven extra three-way toggle switches and two rotaries allow you to customize this H.O.T.A.S. System to your own specifications.
