Hi folks,
I already have the Saitek COM/NAC radio panel, Flight yoke, throttle quadrant and pedals. I am most happy with their performance and reality they provide.

I am considering lashing out for a Saitek SWITCH panel but have read a few mixed reviews of it (of a couple of years ago admittedly).

I fly both the A2A C172 for general flying and the Carenado B200 for instrument flying (migrating to the Flight 1 B200 when I can get it going).

Appreciate any comments on this item for those that have them.

Also if anyone has the Multi panel, interested in thoughts on that

kindest regards

Harold

I've been using it for 12 months or so. No problems here in P3D v2.2 (SPAD drivers & FSUIPC).
It does what I need it to do.

I recently reviewed the Saitek Switch panel for the Aviation News: http://www.saitek.com/uk/blog/wp-content/u...14/08/08-14.pdf

I also have the Multi Panel. Good for autopilot on IFR flights.

I use an older GOFlight panel , I did look at getting this unit a few years back , great thing with that added to your Saitek Yoke Throttle and Rudder makes the keyboard almost redundant.

Multi panel works well with Carenado products and the Islander.
