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.

Bottom line: Saitek Pro Flight Multi Panel is just a toy.
If you are looking for a cheaply built, poorly designed unit, then by all means buy this, but if you are looking for a quality product look elsewhere. Quality this is not!
I would not recommend this product.
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 processor inside the Saitek Panel is very sensitive to the voltage on the USB .. so much so that it is useful to use a powered hub or directly power the Saitek Panel. Try the "Plugable USB 2.0 10-Port High Speed Hub" The Saitek yoke has a built in USB hub, but only 3 ports which is not nearly enough! Watch the the Saitek Panel internal processor wakes up and provides a sensible display, if it is all messed up then the processor did not have enough voltage to initialize properly.
Also the "two position" knob is a fake! On a real auto pilot it would be units and hundreds .. This knob is only hundreds
Best to plug in all the Saitek Panels and their USB power before turning on your computer, this helps BIOS and Windows find the USB devices.
Expect extra work with any Saitek Panel and FSX.
But to my knowledge .. there is nothing better!
I have tested this with both Windows 7, and recently with Windows 8. With Windows 8, the USB power-management feature kept the panel from loading properly, but fortunately, the user community/forum at the x-plane.org covers a work-around for this. I recommend following this forum to keep up to date on xplane simulator topics in general. Also (with both Win7 & 8) , be sure to have a separate powered USB hub if connecting multiple devices, as the USB bus power from a PC may not provide sufficient capacity.
I did have a problem with the mode knob that selects the CRS, HDG, IAS, VS and ALT functions after about 6 months of use. Here, the knob stuck which is also a known issue in the reviews. In my case I sent it in for repair (still under warranty) by submitting a repair ticket at http://support.madcatz.com The support was great and they simply shipped me out a new panel no questions asked/no charge after they received mine back - took about 2 weeks. Don't know if the switch was improved or not though. Time will tell here.
Lastly, although the multi-panel includes the auto-pilot functions, it still may be a good idea to learn the auto-pilot controls in the software as well (i.e the actual cockpit instruments for the plane) as those can be quite different, and in most cases, closer to the actual airplane being simulated.
Hope this review helps.
