Compatibility Hi, I'm thinking of buying a Saitek PS28 for my son. Is there any minimum system requirements I should be aware of before I buy? I'd hate to get it and find it won't work with my pc. Thanks.

I have a question regarding my Saitek x52pro. When I start a flight on FSX my view immediately pans down to the seat of my aircraft and I cant figure out how to get back to looking straight out over the...

There is a conflict within the settings for your 52. Make sure that you change the "look down" key setting in FSX as think the command your stick is sending is conflicting.

The throttle is stuck open on my Saitek 3D Pro, how can I fix it? Multiple calibrations thru FSX have proved unsuccesfull. It's hard to finish a landing with it open

You need to completely remove the calibration you have done. uninstall the driver, reboot and then connect stick back up. Follow on-screen prompts for the driver disk and reinstall. Check there are no conflicts in the sticks own software once installed, then calibrate it.

If still no go, then the stick is faulty.

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.

The buttons do what you want them to do. The stick is programmable. Most games allow you to map the joystick controls the way you want. With others, you can map them with the Saitek software. Download the drivers and software at:

Using Pro Flight Yoke, etc. in fsx

To keep the settings in FSX you must got to the main page, choose settings, create your settings then save the configuration file with a name, ie "myconfig.cfg" or something you will recognise,

Don't try to do the settings from within the game from the top menus as they are not saved this way. Exit the game back to the start screen and do your settings from there, This will fix it. Good luck.
