I have X-Plane 11 and am using Win10Pro  in an i7 with 16G ram, and 4GB Graphics Card.  

My Saitek throttle quadrant is connected to Saitek Yoke via PS2.  I was able to calibrate both of them, but when I try to fly the  Xplane stock 172, both the throttle and mixture oscillate and do not move smoothly in and out with the control, and I can not get full power.  The yoke has been calibrated and works as it is suppose to.  I downloaded the latest drivers.

I was able to confirm that these controls both work in both X-plane 10 demo, and FSX:SE.  Thank you.

Hi RetiredDoc,

I am not with Laminar Research or XForcePC; just a retired flight simmer like you.

Saitek, now logitec, software does not work with X-Plane for controllers. 

Have a look at the following YouTube video created by Michael Brown in the USA.  Michael's company, XForcePC,  is the recommended X-Plane PC supplier by Laminar Research for the USA.  The particular video can be found at 

Good luck

Thanks Glenn,

Deleting the Preference Files and reinstalling/calibrating the Saitek Yoke/Throttle Quadrant did the trick.  I had previously been using CH Products Yoke with a USB Saitek Throttle Quadrant.  Changing to the new system must have caused some confusion with the program.  Not sure why.  Thanks again for your help.
