Default Advanced Joystick Support

What would it take to develop compatibility with the Saitek X52 Pro controller? I want to program ALL the buttons.

Try using Joy2Key -- I use it with Orbiter to map joystick buttons to keypresses (which Orbiter can read).

I guess there is no way to map the reverse engine to to a throttle?

Someone asked something rather similar a couple weeks ago: http://www.orbiter-forum.com/showthread.php?t=38269

I suggested looking into the Fly-By-Wire addon, which is what used to do this kind of thing back for older versions of Orbiter:
Fly-By-Wire 0.9.1 beta

I have no idea if it works in newer versions. If you try it out, it would be good to know.

It also looks like user micro_g was trying to do something similar a year and some change ago; maybe get in touch with him and see where he's at.
