Primarily Saitek (and lesser with CH) has many nice switch boxes and instrument boxes, such as:

(YES, I know this is geared more for modern small aircraft, but the could be used for any flight sim)

(maybe when large multi engine aircraft get in, like B-17, He-177)

Will these be supported in future if not on release?

(that is assuming TrackIR and FFB sticks will already be supported)

You can use some of the Go Flight modules like:

http://www.goflightinc.com/store/gft82-8toggle-switchindicator-module-p-126.html (toggle switches)

http://www.goflightinc.com/store/gfp8-8pushbuttonindicator-module-p-76.html (push buttons)

Not sure about:

And this nice one:

http://www.goflightinc.com/store/gflgtii-landing-gear-trim-control-module-p-123.html (Has 2 axis, use as Elevator Trim , Aileron Trim, gear lights will only work in FSX)

if above panels give a problem like not being detected ask gamepad/joystick buttons then you can always use their software to signal key strokes with the buttons: GF KEYS http://www.goflightinc.com/software.shtml

The first and last seem usable.Is nice to have as many switches as you can and not use the keyboard.
