Well, welcome aboard!
I've come up with an X52 Black Shark profile. It’s not perfect but it is quite usable. I've uploaded the zipped file to www.lockonfiles.com.

DCS-BS X52 Profile v3
Black Shark_X52_Profile_v3.pr0 Readme
Here is the Saitek X52 profile that I have come up with for use with DCS Black Shark.
- Slider1 mapped to "Zoom View" axis. Slider controlled by the left hand thumb, on the throttle. Allows more precise control of cockpit zoom. Thanks for the tip Hajduk Veljko and USSR Rik! (*see note 3).
- Hat 3 Down remapped to “Center View”. This resolves a stuck zoom view problem in v2.
- Hat 3 Right remapped to “Snap View 2”. Allows simultaneous view of both Shkval and ABRIS displays, and also view of Standby Attitude Indicator. - Landing/Search light directional control now mapped to throttle via Hat 3 when in MODE 2.
- Landing/Search light On/Off switch mapped to Scroll Wheel Button on throttle when in MODE 2. (**see note 4)
