X56 PRO buttons settings in P3DV4

Recommended Posts

hello,

I have the X56 pro flight stick, the stick  is with lots of buttons that can be set in the simulator. The problem is that when I try to set certain things in the settings of the simulator for the PMDG or the FSLABS A320 such as F / D, Cockpit light, altimeter,It does not work. Most of the options I mentioned do not exist in the simulator settings.
Does anyone know how to set the buttons effectively? I have a lot of buttons on the Stick and I use a very small part of them.

thank you.

Got the X55 and FSUIPC does the job for a lot of settings but not all ;-)

See if there's a keyboard setting for what you want and then map that to the X56 button using FSUIPC.

SPAD.next payware works great if you are willing to invest in a bit of a learning curve, I use it extensively for all my Saitek devices and love it. I have auto load profiles for more than 30 aircraft. I also use it with Xplane.

Joe, just curious because i also have a X56, what SPAD.next can offer us that u cant do with FSUIPC? i was convinced that SPAD.next was useful only for modules!?

Spad.next is a great deal more flexible and can do just about anything you want with any Saitek device.

I use it with my X52 Pro stick and throttle, Switch Panel, Multi function Panel and peddles. It's particualr useful with Lvar commands and obviously any other type of input, it has built in text to speech responses you can program, it has event monitor functions, it can be coupled with a Voice Attack plugin to be able to issue VoiceAttack commands to execute any Lvar commands or series of them. I find this particularly useful with flying my PMDG 737 in VR to be able to set things like flaps at any particular value with a voice command.

The auto profile switching and easy copy and paste functions make it easy to create new profiles or assign aircraft to any profile. Also you can access examples and copy them if you like from others on the internet for various assignments. I also like to assign logic statements within executions to check status before executing or set my lights and my panels etc...

I will say the learning curve can be a bit steep unless you're familiar with this type of application. I write a lot of home automation code and other code applications that make it more intuitive for me. You will find varying opinions about the programming and setup difficulties but once mastered I could not do without it. I used FSUIPC for years but have recently uninstalled it completely I do my traffic limiting with Ultamate Traffic Live, my calibrations with P3Dv4.2 directly and do all my "keyboard, button and switch profiling" with Spad.next,  and VoiceAttack, two addons I find invaluable particularly with VR.

Thanks for the detailed answer Joe, the problem is the x56 support... indeed theres a x52 profile in the SPAD.next site but that's about it regarding the Saitek "x family", i believe they dont have support for the x56.

I put a post out on the Spad.next forum about the X56 which I think is supported but haven't heard back yet.

I know the x55 is supported so I can't believe the x56 isn't.

I think he just never updated his web page from the pictures of the x52 Pro

Good morning, 

I recently bought the Saitek / Logitech X56, too. 

Now I am searching for software to map the P3D settings to the buttons and axes of the controller, and wonder if spad.next or FSUIPC will do the job better. 

Has someone compared the two programs - what are the pro's and con's? 

By the way - is the registered version of FSUIPC required for spad.next?

Regards Thomas!
