Summary: Panel is good and I like it however it does have some issues with the switches not working properly. Any switch that has two switches in FSX it will only work one switch at a time. It will just take time to work out the bugs. I love Saitek products and the support staff is great.
Summary: This is a well-made, durable unit that adds realism to flight simulations. Saitek is a quality brand. All the drivers and interfaces work without issues on Windows 7 64 bit. I use this with Microsoft Flight Sim X. The only problem I have found is the panel light control does not work. The switch is working but there is an issue in Flight Sim.
Summary: I purchased 3 Saitek Panels; Pro Flight Multi Panel; Switch Panel; and the Radio Panel. They work really well for default aircraft and many payware aircraft add-ons. However, for the more complex aircraft like the PMDG 737, 777 and the Majestic Dash 8 many of the switches and Autopilot functions will not work. For these complex add-ons much of the functionality will not work due to the way those aircraft are programmed overriding many of the FSX commands.
Summary: I got this, and have used it. The gear works with everything that has retractable gear, the lights work only if the A/C has it. So if its there it works. So, if your flying a jet the starter isn't going to do anything same with the cowl flaps. Those only work on piston aircraft anyway.
Summary: I had been looking at ways to make my flight simulator setup a bit more realistic. This item will go a long way towards that goal. This unit is really well constructed. It is also very authentic looking. I however; would have liked to see a white landing gear handle like a real aircraft. But I digress. The ease at which it installed onto the top of my Saitek Pro Flight Yoke was almost impressive.
Summary: Only problem I have is the "start" knob should be spring loaded, i.e. select left, right and both the turn to start and release once started. Otherwise has made flying and selection "electrical" items easier than the screen and mouse.
