I have followed setup instructions for Saitek, however, I am unable to eliminate input control latency (delay). In other words, when I use rudder control correction, I'm off the runway before the program actually responds. The same for yolk and airspeed. There is enough delay between input and response that I cannot fly the airplane. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi skyscooter,

Please check the nullzone tab in the joystick & equipment screen. Make sure the sliders at the top are centered, and that the nullzone slider is full left for 0%. If those settings got changed somehow, it would definitely affect how your joystick works with X-Plane. 

If that doesn't help, here is a section of the manual with some additional troubleshooting steps.
