SOURCE: I have new Saitek Aviator

Unfortunately for the moment Saitek does not have any drivers for Mac.

They say they are under development and they are expecting them somewhere this year...

Even so, the most basic functions should work by plug and play since this joystick is a DirectX device.

Hope it helps...

I have changed my operating system from XP home to Windows Home Premium. my Saitek AV8R-01 seems to be designed for XP. Can I intall a driver that will work with Windows 7


The driver for Windows 7 can be downloaded from here:

http://saitek.com/uk/down/drivers.php

From the second drop-down menu to the right select Joysticks then select AV8R and then select your operating system.

You'll have 2 buttons with the driver and software. Click on each and save the driver to your computer then install them(driver first).

Hope it helps. AV8R AAV8R

Saitek AV8R-01 Joystick - How to install?


No download disk is required. Your PC will automatically 'find' the joystick after it has been plugged into a USB port.
You can just about play any flight sim with this joystick, jat, prop plane or helicopter. The buttons do what ever you program them to do through your game's control settings.

Saitek aviator joystick av8r-01


Well.. if you have windows xp.. then you can calibrate your controller fairly easily.

Go here:

Control panel:Printers and Other Hardware:Game Controllers:(your controller should be in the list):Advanced:Calibrate

This should solve your problem ;)
