I've just gotten the Saitek Aviator joystick (dual throttle) and can't quite figure out how to configure the dual throttle feature. My favorite plane is the G21A and I'd love to have access to both throttles via the stick.

You should be able to program it using the profiler program that came with the controller.
How Do I Program My Controller?
After getting to know your controller, you can start creating your own personal Profiles with the Saitek Smart Technology programming
software (SST). This software has virtually unlimited programming capabilities and allows you to customize the controller to your exact
The Profile Editor allows you to program the buttons on your controller to perform different actions within your games - this is especially
useful if the game you are using does not have its own screen that allows reconfiguring of your buttons.
1. Double-click on the Saitek Smart Technology icon the install left on your desktop.
In the Profile Editor, choose the control to which you wish to assign a keyboard command. You do this by left-clicking on the control's
cell in the control list on the right of the screen
3. With the cursor flashing, type in the key commands and then click on the green tick mark when complete.
4. Repeat this procedure for all the buttons you would like to program and then click File, Save at the top of the Profile Editor window.
5. Give the profile a name (it is recommended you name it after the game for which the profile is intended) and then click Save.
To enable the profile either click the Profile Now icon at the top of the Profile Editor (it looks like a black and yellow crosshair) or
right-click on the controller icon in your taskbar and select the name of the profile from the pop-up list of options.
You will notice that when a profile is loaded that the controller icon in your taskbar has a green square behind it, indicating that a
profile is currently loaded. If you wish to unload a profile simply right-click on the controller icon and click Clear Profile from the pop-up
list of options.
