xsaitekpanels works fine.

 

In more complex aircraft, you need an adjusted .ini file, though (but using the Saitek switch panel for, say, a Boeing or an Airbus wouldn't be realistic anyhow. I use it for simple GA aircraft only, such as the C172 or the Ryan Navion).

 

Have not tested Mad Catz' / Saiteks official plugin yet. It seems to be Windows only (which is not a problem for me, but xsaitekpanels works fine on Linux and Mac, too).

 

 

Edit: Okay, had a quick look. Mad Catz' plugin works fine mostly. I find the silver knob on the multi panel a bit too sensitive, and you can't configure it (in xsaitekpanels you can). Also, the panel lights switch on the switch panel does not seem to work correctly.

OK, Both work fine, but as you stated the silver knob is a bit sensitive, and, I would like to be able to create a little more travel  per inch on the trim wheel. I think I will send an email to find out how one might make adjustments as noted.
