Saitek hardware compatibility

Recommended Posts

So what are the chances that the Saitek hardware (yoke, rudder pedals, thottles, switch panels, fips etc) will be compatible with the new MSFT 2020?

Saitek Yoke and Rudder were used at the media event, thus are sure. The critical point will certainly be the FIPs which I still can't use under AeroflyFS2. There might be a chance if MFS provides an (perhaps extended) Simconnect interface, so SPAD.neXt could supposedly drive the FIPs.

Logitech is really lazy with the Saitek gear, but if its MICROSOFT(R) even them might take action and provide drivers.

Kind regards, Michael

Edit: I just looked up a video from the show and they used Saitek Quadrants, too.

That's awesome! If I can get everything working with the new release I'm set 🙂

 If not..especially if not the fips then I might go VR or a blend of VR.
