Yes, they can be used to create three different sets of control mappings for the buttons. I've found that you sometimes have to switch the modes back and forth once to "wake up" this feature, or at least I did on my X45.

No, it turned out that the Saitek mapping software was a real dog (no offense to dogs) and crashed my computer repeatedly. I used Hazardscript to create all my profiles. You can find out more about Hazardscript, and a host of other things Saitek-related at http://saitekhelp.simhq.com/ -- it's possibly the best resource online for X36/45 users. I don't own my X45 anymore, having switched to a CH FighterStick USB, but that site really helped me when I needed it.good luck!

Send me your email addy and I will send you a text file that I am using. We don't use the Saitek drivers or software, but you should be able to map the same buttons to the same functions. I downloaded the file and then made it "better". ;-)we r rsam@mtco.com

Actually the software works pretty good now. I use it and I have a good program for FS with the 3 modes :)
