Saitek Quadrant What Do you use buttons for?

Recommended Posts

Just wishing to know what controls you map to the buttons on your quadrants, I have 2 so that's 12 buttons I can use thanks everyone.

While i have all the buttons on the yoke itself mapped to various functions, I don't use the rocker switches on the throttle quadrant at all.  When I mount the TQ so it's comfortable to use, i find those switches aren't in the best spot to use for anything other than occasional use.  As well, I have the switch panel, so for most GA planes I have enough switches, and for anything else I would need far far more than that.

 

I'm actually considering modding the TQ and replacing those switches with proper toggle switches; then mounting one of those toggles so it works sideways - then I might use two of them for setting rudder trim and such.

Yes your right they are not in a great spot. Let me know if you mod them and how you do it I might do the same. Cheers

I use mine for manual gear retraction/deployment (for the A2A Spitfire) and for cowl flaps/oil cooler flaps for the An-2. The last two I haven't found a use for but TO/GA is a new idea.

Like boxdog above, I've worked out they are best used to bring up panels as required... GPS / Engine quad / radios / ATC / flightplan etc

I have my two quadrant set up as spoilers on the first lever, two throttles, two condition levers and the last one as landing gear - all through FSUIPC.

 

For the switches I use the first one for flaps extend/retract, the next two for fuel cut off switches under the two throttles, the next two for various light toggles and the last one (under the gear lever) for floats.
