  1. CH Throttle Calibration

    Hi Pete, ok some progress, I have been taking note of the numbers changing up and down as I cailibrate. Now have full max and reverse. When moving the CH Quad slighly forard to get the upper idle setting the numbers dont change, ditto for the lower idle setting. So yes its the idle setting I was actually right the first time. The "delete file was in your user guide? Checklist for Assigning Axes via FSUIPC in P3D o CH Control Manager or Saitek SST software not started o Control Panel in Windows: All controllers detected and Working. o Controllers NOT detected: Replug in the controllers and reboot if necessary to ensure that Windows detects the controller – controllers detected o USB controllers plugged directly in to the motherboard or via a dedicated good quality powered USB 2.0 Hub. o Delete (or move) the FSUIPC5.ini file from the Modules folder. o FSUIPC5 is up to date and install the latest version if necessary. o Start
  2. CH Throttle Calibration

    Hi Pete, apologies in first text I meant Reverse, not idle. Idle is not a problem I cant seem to get the levers to go into the reverse (Beta) position. I see with P3D V latest version there is an option for a throttle reverse axis; turned on controllers to see it that would work but does not "see" the lever moving rearwards, only forwards to increase power axis.
  3. Hi Pete perhaps you could shed light re CH throttle Quad. I cannot seem to create the reverse position for this. I would like to create a profile for typical turbo props with reverse thrust. Wnen you say " For controls which have centres or intermediate ‘idle’ positions (aileron, elevator, rudder, spoiler, trim and the separate throttle and propeller pitch controls where centre (idle) is between forward and reverse), position the control in its centre, détente (e.g. “arm” for spoiler) or default position. Pressing the centre “Set” button will enter the value in one or other of," is this the centre of the full arc or at the notch? Just another option I read was to save and then delete the .ini file and then P3D will re build the file? Regards Charles
  4. Hi Pete, definitely moving to V4.

    On the contrary that is exactly what I suspected! So I thought lets do a swap with another device.But suddenly I saw the word connection in your mail; so as a quick test re-checked all connections, moved the TQ to a new location, then after backing up deleted the Upper Filters and Lower Filters Registry Values. SOLVED!!! At last I can now fly instead of fiddle. But all the time spent has helped me learn a lot about the software. Perhaps one day I will dig into the Advanced manual. Thanks again for all the help! Charles

    And some more.... FSUIPC5.log

    Pete this is what I did now, loaded flight and switched on avionics and then just left it. Then the other switches as became active without toching them. FSUIPC5.log

    Hi Pete, thanks for your patience, I had ported some AC over from FSX so sorry my mistake. I tried on Maule, Mooney and Rob 22, just the one button for panel lights and checked repeat off. But still switches on its own. Sorry not quiet sure about the logging, is this a file I can forward to you? I think its this one? FSUIPC5.log
  9. Button Key press freezing.

    Hi Pete, sorry this is all a bit confusing so I went back to options and removed all button allocations in P3D and recheckced controllers not enabled . Then started with default 172 SP to make a fresh start. On the joystick all works fine but on throttle Quad I tried allocating the fuel cut off switch. It workes but switches on and off. Same with switching between L an R and both tanks, swiches fine but then switches back. So I enabled logging and console, only allocated one button to the 172 on Quad for panel lights, and then checked again, continually switches on and off. Console shows this happening.This was with "toggle Panel lights" Then tried Switch 0 panel lights On, Switch 1 panel lights off. Switched the panel lights on and shortly after they switched off. Allocated same to button on Yoke and works fine! Would a Teanviewer session help? I have now spent about 14 hours doing this over and over (although its a great way to learn!) and would like to move on. Cheers! Charles
  10. Button Key press freezing.

    Hi Pete, my mistake, using numbers not letters so changed that, also checked all button assignments in P3D deleted. Yoke seems to work fine, bit in Throttle Quadrant button for default King Air Prop synch works with allocated button as well as the one for another buttons other function.Then will switch off on its own. If i switch off the L an R starter switches they revert to on. Switch for FD automatically on when flight launches but when switched off stays off. Deleted the 28=U1,7,C0,0 -{Custom control: <0>}-.
  11. Button Key press freezing.

    Sorry forgot am using Joy Letters, and unticked the option to enable controllers. It seems if I select e.g a button to display the GPS it does not respond, then later it appears and then switches off. I used for most actions "Toggle FD/autofeather/seatbelts/ no smoking etc . Is that the proper procedure?
  12. Button Key press freezing.

    Hi Pete, using CH Yoke, Throttle Quadrant and Saitek Rudder pedals. I was also recommended to connect my Saitek panels direct to the motherboard and not via the USB powered hub which I have used with no problems. So thats maybe an issue as I have now changed the USB ports to a different device? FSUIPC5.ini
  13. Hi Pete, although almost new to this fine software,and even though I am managed to make headway with it something has gone funny. In short all was A OK re general profile buttons and switches. .Then P3D V4 cfg file was corrupted after a display setting went wrong. This allowed P3D to load but when pressing "OK" to fly it stopped working. That now sorted by my knowledgeable IT guy. But now the buttons and switches are erratic, sometimes work, then stop. Also some panels e.g. GPS suddenly appear without a switch pressed. Downloaded new latest version 5.112 and this installed fine.Axis assignments and calibration all still all OK. This is a registered version. Any ideas? Uninstall and re-install? Regards Charles
  14. Good day all. As a newcomer to FSUIPC, I am stumped with a really basic thing! How the Bleep do you turn off the controllers in P3D V4? I simply cannot find a tick box for this. Regards Charles
  15. P3D V3 andV4

    Moved to Main Forum ! Hi Pete, not sure if this is the correct forum for this but all I need to know is if I purchase the Ver 4 and would then like to move to Ver 5 for P3D is there any price consideration? Regards Charles
