A couple of weeks ago X-Plane became unusable with what I would describe as serious lagging.  I assumed it was a Windows update and after messing around with it for a long time I did a fresh install.  Everything worked like a champ until I reinstalled the Saitek plugin for all of my gauges, switches, etc.  Same problem came back.  I can uninstall the plugin and everything is back to normal.  Any suggestions?

Hi atlshaver,

I am not with Laminar Research; just a flight simmer.

The following link from Michael Brown may be of some assistance at  Take notice of the information provided in the first half on the video concerning powering and how to power Saitek products.  Michael owns a company called XforcePC which specialises in selling PCs predominantly for X-Plane.  Laminar Research recommends this company as the PC supplier in the USA for Xplane users. 

There was a limit within X-Plane on the number of USB items that could be connected/controlled/run.  I understand that limit has been raised.  Not sure on the new limitation but was at 10 units some time back. 

Good luck in solving your problem as I will be in the same "boat" when I relocate my system in the next few weeks and setup all of my units.
