Need a little saitek help if possible

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone, I just bought a new Saitek Pro Flight Yoke with quadrant and rudder pedals. I have been using my Saitek X52 pro sytem up until now but wanted something a bit better for FSX airliners. I use my X52 for combat flying. My issue is that when I went to load the drivers etc for the yoke onto my computer it detected another saitek product (The X52) and said it had to uninstall that product to install the flight yoke. I still want to keep the X52 for combat but want to also have the flight yoke for Fsx.. I have heard of people being able to configure both an Saitek X52 and a Saitek pro flight yoke together so that they dont have conflicting saitek software/drivers etc and the x52 throttle can be used as a throttle and the yoke quadrant can be used for other things like spoilers, landing gear etc.. It would also be great to have the extra hat switches and buttons on the X52 as the yoke only has a limited number. So my question is does anyone know how to configure these two great devices together.. I have searched everywhere I can think of for answers but just cannot get any info on this.

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

Cheers

Neil B

I think the best way to use Saitek products is to just plug them in and not fool around with any of that software that comes on the disk.

I agree with the previous post.  

 

I would also recommend FSUIPC to manage your controls. There is a learning curve to set things up but once you get the hang of it, you'll never go back to managing it within FSX.  I just uncheck enable controls in FSX and let FSUIPC send all the commands for axes and buttons.  Then you can have specific settings for particular aircraft.  Assuming you always fly the same aircraft with the same controllers, you'll never have to fuss with settings when you change aircraft.
