Can Proflight control panels be mapped in IL2? They connect via USB but I'm not sure if the system regards them as a game controller or some other type of device.

Second has anyone used the Proflight Instrument Panel with devicelink?

Are you referring to the Saitek ProFlight Panels? If so, I could not get these to work with IL-2, but I might have been doing something wrong. That said, they worked with FSX perfectly.

Saitek told me that Oleg is working with the panels for SoW. If they happen to do so is another matter.

good to know - thanks Jay http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/11.gif

I've got a super ugly switch panel I made from some pushbuttons and a disassembled game pad - I guess the Saitek panels use some custom drivers that IL2 does not recognize.

You're welcome, sir.

I do recommend the Thrustmaster MDF panels, though. I have four and they are great for IL-2 and other sims.

And I loooooove that skin of yours.

I can't remember who made the skin for me - I requested it after the Vectren Airshow in Dayton when Jim died. Here is my favorite one my fav vids of Jim - unfortunately both pilots in it have died while performing http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif
