My first Logitech (used to be called Saitek), panel.

Recommended Posts

Hi all!

I’ve bought my first Logitech (used to be called Saitek), panel for flight sim, X-Plane 11 in my case.

I know people complained about the installation some years ago, but hopefully this clears it up a little, at least for X-Plane 11!

What do you think? Do you have a Logitech panel, and how did you configure yours?

I have the switch,radio and multi panels working well in x-plane and Prepar3d (but I have noe uninstalled Prepar3d) and this works well for me-you need to make this change every time you move the panel to a different USB port

Plug in to the USB 2 ports off the motherboard (not a hub)

install the logitech drivers v8 from the Ligitech site

in device manager disable 'allow pc to turn off device to save power'

in registry goto HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB

open  the VID entry for each panel VID_06A3..........

click the sub key which refers the the USB port

click the sub key Device parameters

edit the value of enhancedpowermanagementenabled to 0

eg:Your details WILL be different

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB\VID_06A3&PID_0762\6&27178c41&0&3\device paramenters\ enhancedpowermanagementenabled =0

Changes to your PC are at your own risk so backup first

Hope this helps

Hi Ashley, 


Thanks, so I think it just works out of the box with X-Plane yes?, but the steps you've given are for FSX and P3d?


Thanks for the feed back!
