    this is what it looks like, i am wondering maybe if i need to install some kind of generic helicopter joystick driver to see if that works because the trash driver support from mad cats doesnt recognize the device, it IS however in device manager but it is called "USB Input Device" and when i try to find the drivers for manual install all i get on google is the horrible drivers from mad catz, and all those fishy looking websites that old people click on to download more RAM, anyway i have the EXE file and it makes you have a recognizable controller for it to install the drivers for it, which would be understandable if they had specific drivers for ANY of their products, but no it all runs off of one single driver "package"...anyway so can you help me find a different driver or help me find the correct one please ;-;

    You aren't likely to find a third party driver or software. Most often, when there is a third party option, it's to support hardware which otherwise isn't supported on the PC. As Saitek provides a driver, it's likely a matter of finding the correct process to get it to work which is often a matter of trial and error. Or return it and get a better supported product.
