Saiteck Pro Flight Hat Switch

Recommended Posts

I have that one hat switch on the left side that I would like to use for panning. Can someone tell me how and where to do that?

You don't have to own the Saiteck Pro Flight. How do you make your hat switch to work?

If it is anything like the CH Elite yoke, then you can't assign it to look .  Bear in mind though, there might be someone out there that has done it but I don't know of anyone.  There is a Saitek forum, have you tried there?  Google Saitek Support. Sorry I couldn't solve your problem but I haven't had any Saitek gear since the 45 .

You don't say what sim you are using but if it's P3D or FSX and you have a paid version of FSUIPC these settings in your FSUIPC5.ini file will work great.  You can either edit the file directly or assign within the FSUIPC addon menu.

[Buttons]
PollInterval=25
ButtonRepeat=20,10
1=RB,32,C65734,0 ; hatswB     -{PAN_UP}-
2=RB,36,C65735,0 ; hatswB     -{PAN_DOWN}-
3=RB,38,C65671,0 ; hatswB     -{PAN_LEFT}-
4=RB,34,C65672,0 ; hatswB     -{PAN_RIGHT}-

If your using FSX/P3D just go to controllers and set it up from there it should not present a problem.

If I remember correctly there is a box to tick to enable controllers on the settings page.

I don't have the Saitek joystick I have the CH Eclipse but the principle is the same and as I said above if FSX or P3D from the menu go to options/controls check the yoke is showing in the controller box, change event category to views, scroll down to view (pan) click to highlight, click new box,and add your hat switch. simple, and you most certainly do not need to pay for FSUIPC just to get a yoke to work!

Hope this helps.

While this is certainly true.  FSUIPC is the most cost effective add-on I've ever purchased. It lets me adjust sensitivities on all controls and allows me to set up profiles for different type aircraft.  It's well worth the small price.

I know I have used FSUIPC for years myself.

But that is not what the op asked.

As we have not heard back from the op he has either, figured it out for himself, or we are making the wrong assumption as to which flight sim he is using.

Either way it's almost time for a Saturday beer here in the UK, enjoy your weekend.
