That's brilliant, happy trails going forward :-)
If you were happy with the assistance provided, it would be really great if you could give me a positive upvote on my answer in your Q&A post.Many thanks Paul
Many thanks, much appreciated :-)
In terms of controllers, are you looking for a joystick or yolk/rudder pedals?
I know that there are many configuration files deep in the X-Plane 11 file directory that provides simmers with an opportunity to use just about any USB based flight controller.
From that source, below is a list of what they call 'known joysticks' & below that 'known yolks'.
I use the Thrustmaster T.Flight HOTAS joystick and the Logitech Pro Flight Yolk/Rudders/Throttles, as per photos also below.
WHATEVER CONTROLLER YOU PURCHASE, REMEMBER TO CALIBRATE IT WITHIN X-PLANE 11's OWN CONFIGURATION PAGE AND NOT IN THE MAC OPERATING SYSTEM!

My pleasure, glad to be of help :-
Personally I would go for X-Plane 11, as this is a far more superior flight simulator, which is also being constantly developed by LR and for which there is a lot support, both technically and in terms of addons/plugins etc. However, clearly the choice must be yours!
In terms of flight controllers, there appear to be MAC configuration files for those listed below, although please bear in mind that these files are written for X-Plane 11, I'm not sure if they are in X-Plane 10?
Hope this helps and good flying :-)
