saitek panels and X55 not functioning

Recommended Posts

So what with TIR5 not working in my reinstall of a vanilla FSx acceleration now my complete Saitek suite isn't functioning!!



Saitek support is next to useless. 'uninstal driver and report back . . blah blah'. . really im not 5 years old Saitek


So guys n girls I have a full Saitek suite around £600 which had worked fine prior to my reinstall


I have the Rhino X55 HOTAS


Saitek panels as follows, Nav com, Console switch and the autopilot panel


Firstly the X55 , on the support page they state 75% sensitivity and 5% null zone. Ive set that but the flight stick is causing some severe sudden movement. all fine and stable and next the stick is pulled right back I haven't touched the stick?. .then its in a full right turn , again haven't touched the stick. The tiny free movement should be disabled with a 5% null zone but its sending huge deflections?


the panels, simply aren't working. The only one that has power is the autopilot but not linking up to FSX. .


I have spent approximately £1500 on pc rig, £500 on ads on and £600 on Saitek kit. All have been working flawlessly for the last year but after forced to carry out a reinstall my fsx is frankly money down the drain. don't even get me on trying now to get two Saitek throttle quadrants to work! only recognises one now


I can confirm there isn't nothing wrong with the pc and powered usb2 hubs. ALL fine!



I guess i need to rid everything Saitek related on my rig and completely reinstall again


can someone give me direction on a complete Saitek removal 'all traces'


I fear this could simply be my FSX days numbered after 4 years of spend and time

Happy to say I haven't had nearly the bad experience you are suffering through with Saitek products. Just the opposite in fact. However I do have question about your set up. Are you using FSUIPC or a similar aux. feed linker/controller? If so, that might be your problem.


The only time I ever had a problem with any Saitek item, it was cured by removing and re-installing my FSUIPC. And yes, you do need to pay the license fee and get your FSUIPC registered for to have all the available features.


If you're using a similar alternative, I'd suggest you try the same thing before you remove and reinstall all your Saitek stuff. Good Luck!;)

Being an old chopper guy I usually fly low and slow.

I have a full version of fsupic but as mentioned this is a vanilla instal. I had to reinstall fsx from scratch after running the just flight Tonka traing mission and that's when all went wrong.


At present I don't have fsupic installed on a vanilla fsx acceleration instal. I need to get it running ok before I start adding the ad ons etc

Hi Rupert. .


my fsx seems to be working all ok now after a significant too and thro between Saitek and myself and to be fair they were both patient and helpful. .


but would be handy and much appreciated if you could send me the details for future about removing and re-installing my FSUIPC. I suspect it may come in handy for another time
