Well i should probably explain now that my friend owns a Gaming shop in maidstone and i had him have a look at my review's and he liked them so much hes going to let me take home some controllers/pherials so that i can test them out and write reviews on them.
The Saitek Pro Flight Instrument Panel is probably one of the most interesting pieces of kit ive ever had for simulation games. Its great to spin your plane in MSflight simulator X and the the gauge sitting in front of your monitor spinning round. I was using this in conjunctiong with a saitek flight control set (review after this one) and found that the way you can combine them makes for a far more realistic flying experiance. I found my self looking at the one on the desk far more than in the cockpit on screen just because of ease to see and use.
-- Build --
The build quaility of this is by far some of the best i have seen for an gaming product. The Saitek Pro Flight Instrument Panel has got a stand on the back to hold it up but you can easily prop it up agaisnt something if you need to OR if you are making a custon flight sim cockpit easily slot it onto a cut-out hole due to its not overly massive size.
-- Performance --
Its saitek, what elese do you need to know? ok i know that saitek arent that well know but the quality of their products is incredibly, when it comes to flight simulation equiptment, they can not be beat(Although saitek to have near unbeatable quality in other parts)
-- Price --
The important one right? well, it is quite expense sitting for £110 at the lowest but if you serious about flight sims i think that its more than worth it.
-- Ease of Use and compatability --
I Tested the Saitek Pro Flight Instrument Panel with all MS flight sim programs and they all worked without a hitch also i found that being able to switch between many different displays way great.
-- OVerall --
The best out therre in my opinion, and it is just my opinion. I have not come across many of things like this but when i have they have been cheap and sometimes a bit buggy/glitchy and sometimes twice the pricce of this one! i would sum up by saying that if you realy love your flight simulations. check out this product as it will not fail to dissapoint.
