    For custom programmed instructions possibly you are correct. I haven't tried to do that.

    However I've used Multi-panel with FSUIPC for all the functions listed on the face of the device for at least a year & they work fine. And that does include Pitch Trim, APR, etc.

    Hey Mark, I'm kind of new to all of the drivers and SPAD thingy. Maybe you can help me understand it better? So I downloaded the free version on SPAD (v0.5.1) and I installed it. Now, when I open the program I can see the multi panel there. I edited some of the settings but it says FSUIPC Status: Disconnected. What does FSUIPC does? Do I need it to get my panel working on FSX:SE ?

    Thanks,
    Ed

    Yes, I think you need FSUIPC. It is a utility that allows addons to interface with FSX. There is a free version and a paid-for version. I think you can get basic SPAD functionality with the free version.

    Everything is working perfectly now! Thanks Mark.
