Tip-of-the-Wings to SPADNext

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to give a shout out to the app SPADNext as I tried to use it years back and could not for the life of me get it to work with my Saitek (now Logitech), panels.  My equipment literally sat there for a couple of years I as progressed into P3Dv4.5.  

I had heard they recently released a new version so I dedicated an evening of several hours thinking that is the minimum I would need, and installed the latest version.  I installed with no issues, watched a 15 minute You Tube vid to get my bearings, used a default profile to start and WHOLAA! It all worked!  This never happened in the past.  My Logitech Multi Panel, Switch Panel and two Radio Panels.  Did a flight with a Project Airbus A19 from Phoenix KPHX to San Diego KSAN and was impressed on how it was all working.  Next I need to look into the BIP panel and I'm sure some tweaking and trying out a custom profile.

Thanks to all over at SPADNext for a superb evening flight.

SPADNext is a great product for Saitek panels. Bought Saitek panels many years ago but the software was worse than worse - junk. Thank goodness for SPADNext!

I think I bought the very last one available in the states at a FRYs in Southern California 2 yrs ago. It was a close out item. I live in Texas and had to have a friend pick it up as the store wouldn't ship it. You can find some used ones but they want big bucks. Had no issues setting it up in SPAD NEXT. You wont find many online profiles that use it. If you find a unit Ill post a basic BIP profile for you.

If you go to online profiles find my A2A Bonanza V-Tail . For the Low fuel warning just adjust the numbers to your liking.

Hey Freebird, if you happen to catch this post, so I finally was gonna take the time and install/try out your profile for the BIP.  I opened online profiles in SPADnext and saw it.  Clciked on it but then I had to close SPAD next for another reason.   Opened SPAD again and now your profile is gone?  Do you still it available?  Strange?  I just went through all the online profiles and it looks like your was the only one that has assignments for BIP.  Gee, guess the panel is a rare bird.

Update.  - after shutting down SPADnext for awhile I reopened and the profile in now visible so it may just have been some recycling that needed to be done.  Yahoo!  After several years I finally have the BIP panel working - Lots o' Lights 🙂
