Saitek Quadrants P3DV4

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm having a nightmare getting all my Saitek quadrants recognized in P3DV4, maybe somebody has been successful and can help?

I am proficient with FSUIPC, bought version 5, installed. Problem is FSUIPC5 only sees 2 of the 3 quadrants, though the sim sees all controllers.

I tried the latest spad.Next version, but it only sees my P3DV3, not 4. (Tried quite a few times running the wizard, changing the P3D folder from 3 to 4, but to no avail). 

Also updated all Saitek drivers. 

Running all my controllers and quadrants as is in P3DV3 perfectly, without spad.next.

Thus, FSUIPC5 sees only 2 of 3 quadrants. Spad.next does not see P3DV4 at all, even though the version of the software is supposed to be v4 compatible.

Any help or suggestions appreciated on what I may be doing wrong.

SPAD isn't recognising my P3Dv4 during the wizard, only v3.4 and fails the simconnect test BUT once I start everything up and manually select a profile it is working with all my quadrants with V4.

I don't know how far the process you gave up on, but might be worth ignoring the error messages and just giving it a blast. Its at least tidying me over unless the patches all come out.

Thanks Tony,

I went through the whole process of the wizard a few times.

What I did for the interim is:

FSUIPC runs the 3 of 4 quadrants. I had to combine mixtures into one lever. Spad.Next is running the panels (eventually got that to work, no success with the quadrants though). Both software are registered versions.

I understand also that there will be growing pains with the new sim, but prepared to fly like this for time being, as it is an amazing sim, and I just cannot go back to v3 lol...
