About the joystick show option you mentioned: they all show 1.0 on the very left, that's the smallest value available.
Anyways, I completely unplugged the joystick, fired up the game in expert mode and the helo still rolls to the right way too much that it would end in a crash.
Once I switch back to trainee mode everything is fine.
So it's something within the game. I can't enable/disable certain settings in expert mode so can't track down the actual cause.
I tried to trim but no matter how many times I turned it on/off the behavior remained. I got no idea what else I can try, seems I am stuck in trainee mode. But I want the real thing!
So either that's a bug or I haven't understood how trimming works (if that is the issue anyway).
You propably know of this already, but I'll mention it anyway. Don't take offence, I'm just making sure. Never will the helo stay at a stable hover without you doing constant corrections. You can't let go of the controls and expect to stay in flight. Trim is there to take a load off the controls so you don't have to apply so much constant pressure say in forward flight for example, but it wont fly the chopper for you. Before the two experimental patches, when applying more collective, the chopper would roll heavily to the right. It has been toned down now. Remember though that the patches are for sprocket version only and they are experimental.
Finally check out some youtube videos of hovering choppers with a view inside where you can see the cyclic stick. Constant corrections on the cyclic.
I had some issues with it being squirrely for a little bit on my x52 pro. But then I noticed the edge of my stick was bumping the mouse a bit and the mouse was set as cyclic controls. No problems for me after fully mapping my x52 and unmapping the mouse
I have exactly the same problem. It must be a bug. Please BI fix this asap

I use the default sensitivity on the X52 Pro.

If you never flew real helicopter and you are used to fly some simulators, such as DCS or FSX and still like to start on max difficulty I recomed to lower sensitivity of the analog axes on cyclic (1/4 should be fine). I also strongly recomend to reduce any deadzones on cyclic and collective axes.
I have the same experience using my x52 (not the pro version). I am constantly having to make huge compensating adjustments for random unwanted "directional inputs" (these can vary in all directions). I also had to manually map all my controls and I'm not sure if this is normal or not.
I am using the steam version of Windows 7 x64 and am using the latest drivers downloaded from Saitek.
