By some reason at least in Ubuntu 18.04 Saitek switch panel, Saitek multi panel and Saitek radio panel behave as mouse - for example, by using knobs we got mouse clicks. To prevent this behavior, save following code snipped under /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory, for example as disable_saitek_mouse.conf file:

Section "InputClass"
   Identifier         "Disable Saitek Switch Panel as Mouse"
   MatchProduct       "HOLTEK Saitek Pro Flight Switch Panel"
   Option             "Ignore" "on"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
   Identifier         "Disable Saitek Radio Panel as Mouse"
   MatchProduct       "Saitek Pro Flight Radio Panel"
   Option             "Ignore" "on"
EndSection

Section "InputClass"
   Identifier         "Disable Saitek Multi Panel as Mouse"
   MatchProduct       "Saitek Pro Flight Multi Panel"
   Option             "Ignore" "on"
EndSection

After that, restart X server and you are done.
