    My experience also. I have the Microsoft Sidewinder Precision Pro 2 and it has served me faithfully on and off for decades but it does not work with MSFS2020.

    The joystick is recognised in Windows 10 and is working properly. MSFS2020 recognises the device and the name it but loads a default blank profile and you have set your own bindings.

    I have played with the sensitivity and settings but cannot get the stick to control the plane. Its a weird combination of under sensitivity and then over-sensitivity and lag. It takes ages for an input to be recognised then it slaps it to 100% and you're upside down and back to front.

    Really disappointing especially since it's Microsoft peripheral, OS and game and its not compatible.

    This is thanks to StarlessLion50 on the MSFS2020 forums. Use the axis binding not the (example) Aileron Left or Aileron Right.

    Pre-oredered and installed overnight. I too have a Sidewinder Precision 2, and was surprised to see there wasn't even a profile for it in 2020. I have spent much of today trying to program it, and can tell you I am not a happy camper!
    Hi All,

    I am so releived that you are seeing this issue, i installed the final parts of MS FS 2020 after midnight tuesday morning, I also have MS sidewinder precision 2 and when you go to the controls area it sees it and knows its there and populates the controls for a brief second and then vanishes, also a question mark appears on the graphic on the right.

    frustratingly you cannot find new drivers for it, i managed to find windows XP drivers and installed using that win XP SP3 version, windows 10 now sees all the controls and buttons and the throttle, but even after reboot etc, MS FS 2020 can still not see it, I will keep trying a bit more but im very close to buying a "
    Thrustmaster T.Flight Hotas X (PS3/ PC)" would you guys recommend this joystick? it looks like a good make and good reviews on "youtube".

    if i do manage to get it working i will let you all know, but as MS does not provide any info on thier older joystick anywhere, it does look like they dont want to support it.

    Thanks for your time.

    Eddie

    As an update to my earlier post, I can confirm that the Sidewinder Precision 2 does in fact work with FS 2020. You need to program it from scratch, and it does take some tweaking. I'm still in the process of 'fine tuning' it, but it is definitely working.

    Stay safe!

    Hey Eddie
    Try manually setting these bindings:

    Thanks! I am a private pilot and it was impossible to fly with my old sidewinder old generation controller. Now it is even more controllable than FSX or X-plane 11 in my ultra book.

    Hi,

    The three settings in above screenshot are great! Thanks very much!

    The sidewinder also has a button at the front that I used to use for braking in FSX, a switch on the side that I used for accelerating and a round button at the front of the joystick that I used for moving around the plane. Does anyone know how to bind these two buttons and the switch in MSFS? Any help would be appreciated! Thank you so much!

    Regards,

    Mike
