Reviews and Problems with Saitek Pro Flight Switch Panel
Showing 1-10 of 209
Good for small aircraft, not so good for commercial airliners.

Summary: This works great (mostly) if you're flying small civilian aircraft like a Piper Warrior II or a Cessna 172 where the buttons match up well with the aircraft. However, if you're flying even a starter commercial airliner like the Bombardier Dash 8 the switches will conflict with the aircraft controls...

Summary: This module gives me quite a bit of trouble, all within the Saitek drivers. After 10 or so back n forth emails with Saitek support, I've just given up attempting to use their terrible support and have gotten everything working except for the rotary magneto switch which causes my SFX S/E to crash...
Summary: Shipping - Packaged perfectly and everything was inside and intact. 5/5 (also on time but that is out of the contol of the seller) Description - Exactly as described, in very good condition. 5/5 Product - Very easy to install, and works well with my simulator.
Summary: I bought the switch panel first to check the quality and value of the Saitek products before deciding to add the radio and the multifunction panel. I was very impressed with the design and quality; and delighted with the addition to my sim setup.
Summary: I had my concerns after reading some of the horror stories. All I can say is that I did the install by the book and works great in FSX and XPlane10. Functions great in either program. Just so you don't get too hyped, you should note that not all switches function all of the time.
Summary: This Pro Flight Switch Panel is a must have. You can start your engine(s) via this panel, operate your various lights with it, lower your landing gear and raise the landing gear. There are three lights to indicate if gear is down and locked or up.
Summary: Hope the Software catches up with this hardware. Pro Flight Simulator does not recognize this Switch Panel as of 2014. I have been lead to believe that MS Flight Simulator X will recognize this Switch Panel for the air plane types that use it, but have not been able to verify this yet.
Summary: Basically, it was not evident when I read about and purchased this panel, but you cannot program it. They use their own plug-in that works with Flight Simulator X and X-plane only. Essentially this will not fully work with some add-on aircraft like the VRS Superbug.
