Simulation Panel Advanced Drivers: neXt Generation

SPAD.neXt was started as a replacement software for Saitek Flight Simulation Panels ( While Saitek provides drivers for their panels, these have several shortcomings, notably lack of configurability and flexibility. SPAD.neXt closes this gap and provides almost unlimited options to configure your panels not only for use with flight simulation software. Now many other hardware is supported and the high flexibility of SPAD.neXt enables you to take your experience to the neXt level.

Available now: The Class Echo by ShakePrint

The Class Echo is a Microsoft Flight Simulator 2020 controller / display for Autopilot, COM/NAV, flight and engine information, and more! It is an affordable DIY alternative to many separate devices. 

 Class Echo by ShakePrint

It takes many of the most common controls and puts them at your finger tips. No longer do you have to pan around the cockpit and zoom into autopilot, radio, COM and NAV panels. Autopilot values are selected easily using the touch screen and physical rotary encoder. COM and NAV frequencies are swapped with a touch, and input is done with a responsive touch screen number pad. Essential information about your flight, fuel and engines are displayed onscreen in an easy to read layout, and It connects to your Windows PC using SPAD.neXt. This device works great for GA aircraft and small jets.

What others say about us

I notably like (i) SPAD.neXt's reliablity and (ii) resposiveness of the author in case of questions/proposals

- Michael Basler

I started using the program when it first arrived and been impressed with the ease of use and the support from day one! Run, don't walk to download and try it.

SPAD.neXt is a " must have" software to any Sim builder
