Summary: Getting ready to send it back! I've had it 2 days and I'm mad. It does'nt work in X plane 9 or 10 and I even tried it with FS 2004 and the FS X demo. I always thought of saitek as a maker of cheap controls. I have an old steering wheel and pedals and a a joy stick. They "got the job done".
Summary: I bought this multipanel as part of a complete simulator build that I have been assembling for my son, and who is studying & training to be a pilot. The panel works great and is pretty much a must have add on accessory for a simulator build. Note that when using this panel with X-plane 10, you have to download special drivers from x-plane.org (also stated on other reviews here).
Summary: Saitek Pro Flight Multi Panel is the best autopilot system . easy to control autopilot system. if you dont know how to make it works, check on youtube "How to make your saitek panels work with x-plane 9/10" 100% working after i see this video by TheHugster :D
each Saitek item I add just adds to the enjoyment. Arrived early

Summary: This piece adds to the realism of my flight simulator, each Saitek item I add just adds to the enjoyment. Arrived early, well packaged very easy to setup and well made. I really can not fault this or any of the Saitek products I have purchased from Amazon.
Summary: This is almost essential for any flight simulator. looking around for your hotkeys just to simply turn a light on doesn't give you the full experience, but now you can. The drivers were simple to install, if you want to use the ones Saitek provides, and it even has realtime lights for the gear movement. something as little as that makes it perfect for a small simmer.
Summary: A little cumbersome to setup in Xplane but it works well once it is installed and setup properly. Xplane users need to get proper interfaces from xplane.org. Windows 8 users on a desktop computer need to turn off "enhanced Power Management" for USB devices since this will prevent the digital readouts from coming on (see Windows website for instructions).
Summary: If you're looking for a simple autopilot controller for Flight Simulator, look no further. The Multi Panel handles all the default aircraft and many payware planes too (those that don't implement their own autopilot code, that is). Add the fantastic SPAD alternative drivers and it works with any plane that can be driven via FSUIPC. The trim control is useless for me, but I can see how it would be handy if you had this installed in a Cessna-style panel.
Summary: This really makes setting the auto-pilot a lot easier. The reason for 4 stars is that I have Windows 8.1 and have had the problem of having to plug the unit in after starting FSX or I get a blank screen. I have to do this every time I run FSX. I don't know if this is a driver problem or not. I've tried installing the drivers with the unit plugged in and also without the unit plugged in and get the same result. I downloaded the Windows 7/8 drivers from the website.
