FS2020 / Flight Simulator – PUMA X 5th generation

We have partnered with ASOBO and Microsoft Flight Simulator in order for the PUMA X to be directly automatically configured when using Flight Simulator 2020.

This Guide will help you double-check the default settings and help you assign or reverse some axes should the PUMA X 5th generation flight controls not operate correctly right away.

X-Plane 11 and X-Plane 12

We have collaborated with Laminar Research to make sure that the flight controls are automatically recognized in X-Plane 11 and more recent X-Plane versions.

In case you don’t see the control picture under the joystick configuration menu, and you can’t find the necessary files in the joystick configuration folder despite updating your X-Plane Installation, this video explains how to copy the files.

Windows ->

MAC/Apple ->

the files are automatically installed when installing X-Plane 12, but if you still need to manually download them, you can do it from here -> PFT-PUMA – MAC for the 5th generation PUMA X.
