  1. I had a similar issue with my X52, not sure if this helps, but no harm in trying I suppose. I did this: Plug in your x-52 and find it in Device Manager. Right click / Update Driver / Browse my computer / Let me pick / Pick the driver for USB input device. Im guessing that you will get a similar thing but detailing your Yoke rather than X 52. Also, have you disabled the USB power for your devices? That in itself saved me a lot of issues. Good luck.
  2. I too have the pedals, but have never connected them to my yoke. In this instance, the yoke only acts as a hub, and a bus powered one at that, unless, of course you buy the power supply for it. It would be better if you could connect them directly to the motherboard USB port, but failing that, I use a powered hub. It is preferable to use only USB 2 for these controls. I found that I had issues with FSUIPC too, but connected them before everything else and this seemed to work for some odd reason. Sorry I couldnt be of more help.
  3. HAving the same issue with mine, got it replaced last week by saitek, and the new one does the same. Bought FSUIPC to see if that makes any difference, failing that, I'm buying a wheel and getting GTA !
  4. I have the same kit. I have the throttle plugged into the yoke, everything else is plugged into 2 powered hubs (so as to split the power draw) These are mains powered via an adapter. You have to also make sure that you only use USB 2, usb 3 can cause issues (or so Saitek say). I made sure that my hubs have overvolt protection, just in case. They dont cost that much, just be careful to make sure that they are what you need, the cheapest option is not always the best particularly since a poor design can ruin your stuff, though if you get it from a decent supplier, you shouldnt have that issue. Some people just calibrate the yoke etc through FSX/etc, others use FSUIPC, though this costs money and really isnt required unless you have a particularly complicated setup. Also, with regards the radio/multipanel etc, the Saitek drivers should be fine. There is a thing called SPAD which are replacement drivers and offer a few more setup options together with refinement of the whole operation of these units, though I am happy with mine as they are. Regarding setting up, look on youtube, theres a guy called froogle who has done tutorials on just about everything FSX related, there are lots of others too., and there is always the forum here. I use a desk to mount all this on, though I have seen some folk build their own stand to mount their kit on, and even saw one fella mount it all on a musicians keyboard stand, its just whatever you have to hand that suits. Good luck.
