Throttle Quadrant Problems Calibration
lfgallo posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesMr Dowson. I have a cockpit at home and bought SAITEK products. One of the products is the Throttle Quadrant. I bought two, so I have to use 6 thrust levers. The problem is not that I'm able to calibrate the thrust levers. When I set the Axis Assignment levers show the range -16384 to 0 and then jump unexpectedly to 16383. This happens with four thrust levers, two of the a Throttle Quadrant and two with each other. Thus thrust levers do not work propely. If you prefer, I made two short videos (19s) to demonstrate what is happening. The links are: I appreciate your help and patience. Gallo
Saitek USB throttle quadrant
GAPDBlue37 posted a topic in FSUIPC Support Pete Dowson ModulesI am experiencing a slightly strange situation and I'm not sure what has caused it. I have a simple cockpit setup including a yoke, pedals, multi-panel, radio panel, switch panel and an additional USB throttle quadrant (All of the Saitek Pro-Flight variety). I am also running FS9 with the latest compatible version of FSUIPC (registered) on a Win-7 64-bit machine. I have had to disconnect my USB throttle quadrant because it somehow triggers the "Pan view up" control continuously. I have run the calibration on all the peripherals and all axes/buttons seem to be responding properly (albeit with some spikes) but none of them are "stuck". I have also cleared all the button and axis assignments in both FSUIPC and FS9 and reassigned them. The only thing I have been able to narrow down is that the problem only occurs if the throttle quadrant is plugged in, regardless of where it is plugged in (USB hub, directly to the PC or to the USB plugs on the yoke). Could you give me some troubleshooting ideas to narrow down what is triggering the control input or another way to address it? I am completely at a loss here. I wish I had another throttle quadrant to plug in so I can rule out bad hardware, but unfortunately I don't. Any help will be greatly appreciated!
