Using your PFC settings page everything works except the Yoke controls.  I can see no settings for them.

My PFC console is about 20 years old, but it works perfectly with P3D, on the same machine.  It is configured by Pete Dowson's  PFC software for that.  I mention this to establish that the hardware still works fully.

Is there any way I can make these controls work with XP11?

Hi Jona,

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

Because your controller has some age Laminar Research most likely did not consider your your unit as part of the predetermined setup for yokes etc.  This means you will have to spend some time configuring the unit.

Have a look at the answer I provided at the following link  Did it work for this person?  I don't know.  It may help you.

My reference source was from Michael Brown at  Michael runs a company that builds PCs specifically for X-Plane.  Laminar Research lists this company as the preferred PC supplier in the USA for anything X-Plane.  I find many of Michael's videos to be of some value. 

By the way you may or may not get some "joy" from the following links as well.  The links can be found at  or   or   and finally

Good luck

Thanks Glenn.  I omitted to mention that my console (Single Professional Console) is serial connection.  I connect to my more modern PC with a Serial/USB adaptor.

My problem is that XP11 sees it and I can calibrate the controls, but several controls are not configurable in the PFC section.  Notably the Yoke's 4 rockers and 4 buttons cannot be configured.

I am now evaluating the possibility of converting the console to USB connection.
