5 out of 5 eggsNo more looking with the camera to flip these switches

Pros: - bought this to take more of the common panning of the camera when starting up the plane... and who wants to use hotkeys these days anyway?
- well constructed mounts easily to my other pro flight stuff

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: If you are buying the ProFlight range of things make sure you buy a powered usb hub - your computer cannot power all this stuff off its motherboard... I bought a 13 port 12v 5A one by Anker which does the job providing power.

1 out of 5 eggsNOT general-purpose/programmable

Pros: It's a relatively sturdy built device, even if it's entirely plastic. I like that the panels can attach to one another using the included screws (or, if like me, you would feel they'd be more secure with more screws, look for M4x20 or so screws)
It functions exactly as advertised.

Cons: Unfortunately, I made an incorrect assumption that because the panel is a Saitek device, it would be programmable in the SST software. That is not so.

The drivers are hard-coded for their functions and will ONLY work in Flight Simulator X or X-Plane.

Other Thoughts: While it's a little unfair to rate something so low for not doing something it was never advertised to do, I feel the Saitek name is enough to warrant better drivers. Saitek support, however, has taken the position of "We never advertised it as such and so we have no intention of writing proper drivers." It's up to the community to write our own third-party drivers.

1 out of 5 eggsRubbish software

Pros: Solid physical construction, doesn't "feel" cheap

Cons: Flipping switches on this panel is almost at likely to freeze up your FSX as it is to actually perform the action. I'm actually afraid to use any of the switches now because of it.

Other Thoughts: Saitek tech support was unresponsive.

5 out of 5 eggsEasy setup

Pros: Well, as long as MS Flight Simulator is installed prior to installing this device. Otherwise you have to go through and unplug and plug the device back in before launching FS (still a very easy process, just missed it in the install documents). Very nice feel to all of the switches. While the picture for the Magneto shows OFF|L|R|BOTH/ALL|START, the actual panel correctly had the Magneto setup as OFF|R|L|BOTH/ALL/START.

Cons: The mounts do not have the countersink that the Yoke has, so the angled screwheads do not screw in completely. Seems to be a miss by Saitek as they own all of the components here.

5 out of 5 eggsWorks amazing but...

Pros: Rugged design unlike the rudders and yoke, switches e that loud click noise like a real plane switch. Landing gear lights work amazing. Off when gear is up, red while gear is in motion and green while down. Starter knob works well, but only work on prop planes.

Cons: Saitek says that they have no current plans to make this compatible wits Microsoft Flight, so that is a downer. No other cons.

Other Thoughts: I love this thing
