Thank you for your purchase of our Cessna Model 2850/55 Switch Panel.
The Models 2850 and the 2855 are compitable with X-Planec 11.xx.

Below are the Tables that contain the Switch settings that need to be configured using your Flight Simulator software. It is assumed that a knowledge of SETTING the Flight Functions in X-Plane 11.xx are already known, so the instructions on Basic programming will not be covered here.
So with that in mind, Happy Flying

Programming the
Model 2850/2855 Cessna  Panels
Before programming the switches, plug the Panel into an unused USB Port and allow your computer to automatically install the needed Driver Software. All DTA circuit boards and panels are designed as HID Joystick inputs, so as to make the boards and panels compatible with all Windows Operating Systems.

With the Panel's Driver software installed, you can now RUN your copy of X-Plane 11.xx and configure the switches as indicated below.

X-Plane Assignment
The switch configuration for the Model 2855IRS is the same as the 2850. The Rocker switches will light each time the switch is flipped into the ON position.

With the Panel now programmed for X-Plane Flight Functions, load and run one of the many aircraft available. Test all switches and key switch positions for the correct operation.

With the programming complete, you can now load and run X-Plane using the newest version of DTA Cessna Switch Panel.
Happy Flying!
