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...

Microsoft Combat Simulator Doesn't work with joy stick satik 290 pro. nothing works. it worked on xp. doesn't work on vista home.


You need the drivers from Saitek.com.

After selecting download > software, use the "Choose your Product Type) box. Select Joystick and you will find yours listed.

You need to know if you're using Vista or Vista64.

Install them, then plug your stick in. Should then work.

Trigger button on Saitek ST290 is stuck in fire position


I've disassembled the ST290 to get at it's internals. It wasn't easy. It's not something I would recommend and finding the exact same lever switch to replace the damaged one would be tricky, not to mention soldering in the new switch and all.
I have seen the ST290 at Radio Shack stores for less than $20. You might be less frustrated just getting a new one.
