Please can you add a way to re-connect the controller without restarting the application.

I know you really don't want to open up this very old part of the codebase but honestly it is incredibly annoying. I use an wireless Xbox 360 controller which tends to disconnect after 10 minutes. This makes using it with P3d a real problem, go and make a cup of tea, pause it, long flight and you have to restart.

I don't see why all my other games have no problem re-acquiring but FSX and Prepare3D don't?

Perhaps it could detect when a known joystick disconnects, then poll for that joystick at regular intervals after disconnection. Or even a simple fix, a button in the control section to re-poll for Joysticks.

Other than that 2.5 is really a great step forward!
