Hi All, 

It was my birthday today, have been waiting to get my hands on the Saitek Multi panel!

I did, and it works great with my JF collection (767, Tristar, DC-6 etc)

Only problem is, it doesn't work with the 146, I can only use it to select course 1 (not 2) and the altitude selector doesn't select the altitude in the cockpit.

AP master button on the panel isn't engaging the autopilot either!

Tried to go into controls settings to customize it there but no joy! It doesn't respond to inputs from the multi panel within fsx!

Is there any way that I can program/customize the functions of this panel to make it work?

As you may be able to tell I am absolutely gutted as the 146 is my favorite aircraft to fly!

Warm regards, and really hope someone can help!

Jack

Hi Jack,

This is because the 146 uses custom coding in the gauges meaning that the Saitek hardware cannot detect it.

Use SPAD 0.51 instead of the Saitek panels. Just google on SPAD.
