Some good hardware?

Recommended Posts

Hello,Does anyone know of any PMDG-compatible hardware (or what can be made compatible through FSUIPC, SPAD or LINDA) that is of good quality?I already have the Saitek switch panel, Yoke, Pedals and throttle.What I am thinking about now is the Saitek multi panel, radio panel or an extra Throttle. Thank-you for any suggestions. smile.png


Thanks,

Kevin L

Radio panel will work without any programming, because the COMM, VOR and ILS, and squawk radios, are all mapped to the default functions.Not sure about the multi panel, I think the trim wheel will work only, but yeah, you can program it through SPAD.Also, Saitek Yoke is crap! Squeeky ailerons and sticky elevator. I have the Saitek Cessna Yoke, a full 180 degrees for turning, so much better than the old Pro Flight Yoke System, what a difference.

The Saitek PF yoke can be made much less toy-likeEdit: if you're after 737-specific hardware, goflight's mcp has been made to work using sioc (I think!). Vrisight's mcp combo has been made to work usig Linda. It isn't nearly as aircraft-specific, so that may be what youre after.

I love my VRInsight MCP Combo. It's cheap, covers EFIS, MCP, Radios/Transponder and 8 extra buttons. Fully configurable via Linda for any A/C, and there are plenty profiles included in Linda so it's basically Plug&PlayBTW Ken, thanks so much for that Saitek Yoke mod. i did the elevator axis part and it's far less sticky now!

Oh, just a note to pay attention to the roll pot gears. They can be misaligned if you're not careful during reassembly. Just a matter of making sure the two gears mesh in the same positions. Easy to do as long as you know to check it.Edit: I think it also says yaw instead of pitch once or twice. Just minor corrections like that or a missing period/comma...
