thanks. rd

But I asked two online sellers, marvgolen and mypilotstore.their reply wasn't the same so decided to seek help from here.

here is their reply

"Hello Ibrahim,

The CH products are not compatible with the Saitek products. Both will work with FSX.

Thank you,


Marv Golden Sales, Inc."

Most salesmen don't want you to use their competitors products, so of course, they will say that one will not work with the other.

If you go through this forum, you will find that alot of people got them to work together.

I do not have the Throttle Quadrant. However, I assume that it is just a small task to "program" the levers.

If you look at the attached picture, you will see that I have two sets of switch panels that work great with my CH Products Yoke and Rudders (Gameport).

PS: The small "ten key pad" on the right is fantastic for reacting with the ATC screen. It is much easier to touch one of the ten keys than to reach over to my keyboard. (especially in the dark) 8) 8)

Thanks Mel:

I forgot to mention that the Yoke and Rudders are Gameport and the switches are USB. They work great together.

Here is another picture.
Right side consists of pictures taken of/with Patty Wagstaff. Yes, I even have one of her "Sequence Cards" that lists the moves that she makes during a performance. I intend to have her autograph it in a few weeks during the annual AOPA Convention in Tampa.

Middle section of pictures are of the Blue Angels, B17 that I flew in and picture of a B25 from Doolittles Raiders.

I also have pictures of me in a glider, Pilot and Navigator of Enola *beep* (I met both of them), me and Mrs United Nations USA (our guest during an airshow at Albert Whitted Airport) and some of my certificates.
