3.5" color LCD display that can simulate 12 different flight instruments.

If you thought your flight simulation experience was realistic before, just wait until you aviate behind Saitek Industries' Pro Flight Instrument Panel. Bringing the instrument panel right into your home, each Saitek instrument features a 3.5", full-color LCD display capable of portraying an incredible 12 flight instruments on the same unit. With the push of a button, users can toggle between each of the standard "six pack" flight instruments (attitude indicator, heading indicator, altimeter, airspeed indicator, vertical speed indicator [VSI], and turn/slip indicator), as well as VOR #1, VOR #2, Primary Flight Display (PFD), Automatic Direction Finder (ADF), Horizontal Situation Indicator (HSI), and engine gauges. Gamers also have the option of hooking up multiple Saitek instruments to recreate an astonishingly accurate real-world flight deck.

Compatible with Windows XP/XP64/Vista (all versions)/Windows 7/Windows 8 and Mac OSX operating systems. Designed to work seamlessly with Microsoft Flight Simulator X, and will accommodate X-Plane 9/10 with additional drivers. Also perfect for use with Saitek's Pro Flight Yoke System [sold separately]. A highly capable, easy-to-operate instrument that does wonders to bridge the gap between fantasy and reality.

    Flight Sim Realism
    Saitek has developed a series of panels to increase flight simulation realism. While added realism is definately achieved, basically they do nothing more than bring some of a plane's controls and gauges outside of the virtual cockpit onto your desk, freeing your screen. This saves a lot of view-changing and mousing around. However, since they do not bring all of those controls and gauges onto your desk, not even if you got several of all of them, view-changing is still essential. To avoid view-changing, something like Track-IR would be more useful. Also, the view changing now takes place on these controls and gauges, for instance, unless you have 6 FIPs, you'd probably need to change the instrument you want to display on the FIP itself by pressing the buttons at the bottom of the FIP. Also, on the left side of the FIP you can press any of 6 'quick view' buttons which opens directly the associated view. To display GPS for instance, one of these buttons can be pressed rather than shift+3 on the keyboard. These panels are made to be screwed on the yoke which is meant to be screwed to your desk, but if you do not have a yoke, pressing the buttons on the panel will just move the panel backwards. The panels are rather smoothly made so they slide easily. Saitek supplies velcro patches to stick on your desk and the panels so they won't move, but I would not want to stick those velcro patches directly on my desk. The supplied USB cable is kind of tough, not easily bendable. Some USB devices are lighter than the cable's toughness and as such will not stay where you put them, and this is true for the FIP. But again, these panels were meant to screw on the yoke. One of my FIPs has a dead pixel. Not sure if that would qualify for warranty-exchange but it does not bother me enough to try. USB devices may need more power than you think so it is advised to use a powered USB hub or to plug it directly into the computer. Esp. if you have more than one FIP. The FIP was designed to display the 6 main flight instruments. By default Saitek's FIP shows Cessna 172 like instruments, regardless of the chosen plane int he flightsim, with the exception of the airspeed indicator which goes up to 360 knots. I think that someone who is a bit clever with a PC can change the looks and ranges of these instruments. I have found XML files and the default FIP pictures that are displayed. Change and adjust these and it should be possible. My guess is that it is possible, in fact, to display all 6 instruments on 1 FIP; making it look like a small version MFD as found in a Lear jet for instance; but this would not automatically change if I chose to fly another plane. I suppose it can be made selectable by the buttons on the bottom of the FIP. Not sure what impact combining flight instruments onto 1 FIP would have on performance, however. Saitek indicates in their manual that there may be a performance price to pay when using multiple FIPs, but perhaps this is because of multiple data streams rather than multiple FIPs. It should be possible to use a client PC with SimConnect to let the client PC process the FIPs' data, freeing resources on the server with the flight simulator; but I have as yet not been able to get that working, not even with Saitek's tech support (who, btw, pointed out a site to me where I can download different, enhanced drivers, not made by Saitek, but by enthousiasts - I have not yet tried those). This is a pity since the FIPs have a very noticeable impact on helicopters. My computer is not the latest and fastest but surely not a slow one either, but I must set the FIPs to inactive by pressing the up/down buttons on them or I won't be able to fly helos without getting dizzy by the sim's shocky screen drawing. For fixed wing flying I notice an impact but a very acceptable one. I think these panels are really cool and for me, being an aviation enthousiast, worth the cost. But if you're just an occasional flightsimmer, they are probably not.

    Dual Throttle Quadrants
    My rating is a 5 If either Saitek or Microsoft had the ability to utilize seperate magnetos. Ex: flying a C-130 type aircraft only one throttle controls all 4 engines. I have dual quads. I would like to know if anyone has any suggestions they would be greatly appreciated. I will probably get in touch with Microsoft or Saitek. I am a student pilot and this has been a great help in my training and upgrade to IFR flight. I also have X-plane and it has been a real treat, still learning it. Thanx Mac

    Mr.
    Not as cool as I thought. It is nice to be able to get the different gauges, but it seems to interfere with my computer operations. I've numerous game stoppages and restarts. Also the dial displays are somewhat fuzzy and I have to guess at some readings.
