The X-Plane 11.10 update is the first major update for X-Plane 11. One of its new features is a way to save joystick & keyboard profiles.
Before this update, X-Plane remembered any changes you made to the joystick or keyboard settings as the one and only version in preferences. In the 11.10 update you can now save as many different joystick and keyboard arrangements as you want, and have them load automatically with any aircraft you choose.
