Is there anything special I need to do prior to hooking up a SAITEK pro-flight yoke/throttle/rudder pedals with X-plane 10 on Windows 10?  My o/s is 100% up to date including the intel HD 5500 graphics driver.  Thanks. Larry

The Saitek throttle quadrant that is packaged with the yoke, will not work as it has a PS2 style connector. X Plane likes only USB connectors.

X Plane has button assignment issues when a 3rd throttle quadrant is connected. You won't be able to assign any tasks to all buttons on all three of your quadrants.

You shouldn't have any problems using your SAITEK gear if X-Plane is already working on your system. Make sure you calibrate the controls by following the instructions in the X-Plane manual.

The only thing I would add is to use a powered hub - I had small probs with a few sims and my X-55 plus Cessna Style Rudder pedals until I connected them all through one. They work great with X-Plane (Saitek (Madcatz support are almost useless BTW).
