Military-grade Space Sim Precision
Evolving the H.O.T.A.S.
Designed to meet the needs of the re-emerging space simulation genre, Saitek introduces the new X-56 Rhino H.O.T.A.S. System. Built to the same exacting standards of Saitek's award-winning Pro Flight accessories range, the X-56 Rhino delivers a multitude of customizable options.

New Mini Analog Stick Control Surfaces
In modern space sims control is becoming more complex than in traditional atmosphere-based flight simulations, with many more inputs required to achieve true control of the space craft. Pitch, roll, yaw, backwards, forwards, up, down, left and right (the titular 6DoF) all need to be accounted for.
This is why the new mini analog sticks are required; providing four more axes of control. Assignable to any in-game axis function, or programmable using the included software, running out of control options is no longer an issue.

The X-56 Rhino's control surfaces are incredibly accurate, courtesy of a 16-bit aileron and elevator axis, each employing hall-effect sensors. Developed from the ground up, Saitek's 16-bit axis solution enables extremely precise flight.
Adjustable Stick Spring Force
via Advanced 4-Spring F.E.E.L. System
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 â€“ or no spring at all â€“ which best accommodates your style of flying.
With Friction Adjuster and Throttle Lock
The X-56 Rhino boasts twin throttles â€“ ideal for situations in which your primary engine is disabled and you're down to one â€“ and also provides the option to adjust the friction required to move them. And if your aircraft of choice is single-engine, a handy throttle lock effectively converts the twin throttles into a single unit.

At least 231 Programmable Controls
Saitek's software provides the ability to completely customize all of the X-56 Rhino's axes and buttons. You can adjust deadbands and response curves to fine-tune axes to respond as you wish; all buttons can assign any number of in-sim commands, such as afterburner, Frame Shift Drive, target lock and weapon group firing. The software also allows programmability for an array of mouse and keyboard commands â€“ from basic single-key inputs to very advanced, timed, and macro commands.
