User Review

Boatmonkey, Walmart

  • 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. That is, if your selected plane has no cowl flaps the switch simply does nothing. Same for some of the lighting functions and likewise with landing gear.

Saitek Pro Flight Switch Panel.

DP "DP", Amazon
29 July 2014
  • 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. If you fly a plane that only has two retractable wheels, like a C47, it will also show two wheel going up/down, with the landing gear lights indicating two wheels. A very nice addition to FSX.

Cautions about software compatibility

Joseph B. Ennis, Amazon
20 July 2014
  • 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. The Saitek Switch Panel in not on the MS Windows list of Game Controllers. There will be a driver problem!

What they don't tell...

Deltaleader71 "Deltaleader71", Amazon

  • 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. It does work for the default planes in FSX from what I can tell. Just realize you cannot program this and it will not work with other flight simulator programs.

Closer to real, dudes.

Brandon Spacey "Furthermore, what?", Amazon
10 July 2014
  • Summary: With the addition of the six buttons on the throttle quadrant and all the switches and buttons on the flight yoke, this switch panel pretty much removes the need for any screwing about with a mouse on the screen trying to find and flick switches. That was the biggest reason I bought this, so I wouldn't have to switch to the light switches view on FSX, then flick them on with the mouse, then switch back over to cockpit view... It was a pain. Like Blaine.

Pilot says hey!

B. Gregory "flyerbri", Amazon

  • Summary: I've since lost this and the other Saitek equipment I had, but as a compliment to my real flying lessons I was taking - I was going for an instrument rating... these really made flying 'at home' fun. Now if only Microsoft had worked on the graphics for the Flight Simulator a bit, I would have had a ball. Maybe they got a bit miffed I kept intentionally crashing planes, they really need to work on the realistic effects of their explosions, ya know?

Great Product

  • Summary: This makes FSX so easy to use, it beats trying to press keys when you have a panel right there to flip a switch or move the landing gear lever all right at your finger tips. Don't wait don't debate buy this product and start really flying. The start knob only work for some of the airplanes in FSX it will not work for everyone but it works great for the prop jobs that it does work with. You can always go to Saitek website and download drivers and updated software.
