Simplified Autopilot Adjustments
The full autopilot panel – replete with real-time LED readouts – gives you fingertip control over a multitude of settings within FSX, X-Plane*, and Prepar3D software. By adding a Multi Panel to your flight sim setup, you can manipulate your aircraft’s autopilot settings with physical dials and buttons that immediately trigger in-sim actions. (*Plugins available at Saitek.com.)
Extra Controls for Auto Throttle, Flaps, and Pitch Trim
Easily adjust your auto throttle via two-position switch. An accurate 2-way rocker switch provides control of your aircraft’s flaps. And for precise control of pitch, a built-in trim wheel – offering just the right amount of resistance – enables you to maintain your desired attitude.
Fully Customizable to Meet Your Needs
Saitek’s Pro Flight Yoke is the foundation of an authentic flight sim experience and built to harmonize with many other Saitek flight simulation products. Saitek's range of Instrument Panels are modular and interchangeable by design, and can be situated one on top of another or side-by-side. Want the Altimeter above the Compass? Done. Want your Vertical Speed Indicator to the left of your Airborne Direction Finder? Go for it. It’s your choice. Easy-to-use mounting brackets provide the means to arrange your flight simulation setup in a configuration only limited by your imagination.

Top Customer Reviews
Pros - adds nice realism to flight simulator x and easy to setup
Cons - a little pricey, and cannot utilize the built-in powered USB hub in the Saitek Pro Flight Yoke. Causes hub exceeded power message. Finally had to connect the multipanel directly to computer USB port. This is also true for the Saitek Radio panel. Only the Saitek switch panel can be connected directly to the yoke without exceeding hub power. Seems Saitek should have engineered a better solution, providing more hub power or bundling a powered hub of sufficient capacity.
The display is large and easy to read and the controls are easy to use.
The buttons are backlit so when you activate any of the functions, you know it because they light up.
The trim wheel is very precise so it makes flying when not using the altitude hold easier.
It looks great on the desk and is so much more intuitive and much easier to use than trying to scan the cockpit and click all around the screen to set the auto pilot.
The only complaints are that the knob to switch between CRS, HDG, IAS, VS and ALT requires a lot of effort. But it is a sturdy metal knob. The other thing I would have liked is a button to switch between IAS and Mach for the airliners. Other than that, it works great and is a wonderful addition to your flight simming experience.
It says multi-panel , etc. Yes, it does have some other important functions, but truthfully this is your Autopilot panel.
Note: I used this with FSX.
I found that if you want to get a little more in depth with planes, especially passenger jets -- that have FMC's, and so on. The add-on planes, this is very hard to work with.
It typically is only going to work the 'heading' adjustment for these add-on jets and nothing else. Though you can go and download what are known as SPAD drivers, look it up, and with ALOT of toil and trouble you can have a working version for most things. Not for the non tech savvy, or light of heart.
For default, FSX planes (and if it works for XPLANE) -- It is great.
Essentially you have a dial on the left hand side that has "ALT, VS, IAS, HDG, and CRS". You turn this dial to select any one of these settings. This corresponds with the one adjustment knob on the panel.
People complain about how tight/stiff this knob to move from ALT to CRS is, but frankly, while it is stiff, it is something you get used to and isn't a big deal. Further it does loosen up a bit with use.
Essentially, these are ALT = Altitude, VS = Vertical Speed, IAS = Indicated Air Speed, HDG = Heading, and CRS = Course.
The knob adjusts them all fine, I did find the only adjustment that I wish was a bit faster was the IAS, or speed adjustment. I'd find myself taxing in a 747, turning the dial like mad trying to get my IAS to 250 or so for the TOGO or Autopilot for takeoff.
Then you have the display. Which is just Red on black. Fine , not fancy, but look what you are buying.Read more ›
The unit came VERY well packed in foam. It is very light. All three units are very light. Well built, just light. If they are all attached to each other in a stack, they will not stand up by themselves. I didn't want to mount them on my Saitek yoke, so I built a small box to mount all three Saitek units in. This way, they don't slip around on my wooden desk, and I didn't want to use velcro.
My only complaint is that the most important functions a panel would have are split up between the Saitek units, and to get them all, ya gotta buy all three. Radios, flaps, trim, gear, and switches. Radios are their own unit, trim and flaps on this unit, and gear on the switch panel.
Using it is fairly simple; set the switch on the left to ALT (Altimeter) and turn the knob on the right to set the altitude that you want to fly at. Next set the switch to VS for the Vertical Speed that the plane is capable of (or less). IAS is the "Indicated Air Speed" that you want to fly at. The HDG (Heading) and CRS (Course) settings are better left for you to read about elsewhere. When you have everything set up the way you want it press the appropriate orange buttons followed by the white AP button (if it hasn't already come on). Don't forget the Auto Throttle switch
Turning real knobs and pressing real buttons beats the heck out of trying to make the same settings on-screen. So even if you don't do it often, it's a real pleasure to use when you do.
Although there is a lot to like, it does have a few cons:
* The left hand switch is narrow and therefore a little hard/stiff to turn. No problem. Go to Radio Shack and pick out any knob, 1" or less. I used one that was ¾", but may get one that's 1". Want a MUCH bigger choice? Look up knobs (1/4" shaft) at Digi-Key online. The flat side of the post WILL NOT match the screw in the new knob. NOT A PROBLEM! Just use a small screwdriver with as much force as you can WITH YOUR HAND. No pliers wanted or needed. Just use your hand! The screw will be tight enough against the round side not to slip.
* The display is far dimmer on this than on the Radio Panel.Read more ›
