Joystick issue ?!


Recommended Posts

Hi. First of all thank you for your great job for the sim community ;)

I use PMDG B737.

I have a prob when the plane is at approx 50 feet over the rnw on landing. I can exactly the proper setting for an autoland. The thing is that the autothrottle doesn’t not fully retard at about approx 27’’. For about a month or so, everything worked fine. I made it to retard automatically everytime. But for no reason when I tried yesterday, the autothrottle only decrease a little bit, and not fully like before… and that’s for me a prob cause I when it touchdowns it still have som power on the engines (if you understand)… So what you thing is the cause?

Really appreciate your help!! Thanks!

Sincerly,

I'm sorry, I really have no idea. You entitle this inquiry "Joystick issue", but then talk about automatic throttle control, which surely is a software issue -- the joystick isn't used, is it?

the PMDG aircraft are very complex, and I don't know how they are programmed at all. Sorry. Have you asked over at PMDG?

Regards,

Pete

Now i do have prob with my joystick.. I use an old Microsoft Sidewinder Force feedback pro. The sensitivies are too high.. i tried to reset to defaut on the FS menu, but still have the same problem... So i tried to fix it with your FSUIPC, but it doesnt fix it.. now the plane is turning too slow...When i try to calibrate the joystick via windows XP, the throttle is at full when my slider is on min ( iddle)... It shouldnt be like that.. If the slider is at min ( iddle), then the throttle graph should show 0 %, but it shows 100 % ;\ So there is something wrong there...

If you have any ideas, plz let me know.. and sorry if my question was obvious not FSUIPC related...

You have at least two things mixed up there. This 2turning too slow" is a bit of a meaningless statement. Do you mean you cannot control the ailernos to their limit? If so, you have badly calibrated joystick axes, and you need to set all the FS sensitivities to maximum. here is no such thing as "too sensitive" overall -- if you reduce FS's sensitivity, you reduce the range. Don't do it. You can calibrate in FSUIPC and apply a slope, so you get less sensitivity in the centre but more at the extremes. This is the way most prefer it.

As for the throttle, itr sounds like you have the axis reversed. Check the FS control assignment setting for it -- you can reverse it there, or in FSUIPC. Just don't reverse it in both places.

Regards,

Pete
