Helping a dimwit -PTT on CH yoke


Recommended Posts

Dear all,

I have a ch yoke which I have set up with SB3 on a widefs. SB3 is on my laptop. I have a plantronics USB headset which I use for voice etc.

I have selected the PTT through FSUIPC and stated the action that I wanted, having read the manual it suggests that this is it. However no controller can hear me and I seem to be getting no chatter in SB3. It used to work via the left ctrl button on the lap top.

I am confused...please help a dimwit.

Oh I am using the latest interim version so I can use the axis for reversers...cant get that to work as I would like but not giving up yet.

Many thanks

Andrew

Can you explain what that means, please? I would need to know what you have actually done.

What version of WideFS are you using? Is the connection okay?

Reverser axes have been supported in the Joystick Calibration part of FSUIPC for a long time. The only extra in the interim release above is the axis assignment -- previously you had to assign them to some other FS control (in FS) and tell FSUIPC which they were via the FSUIPC.INI file.

Regards,

Pete

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the reply.

Sorry i meant to sayI have selected the Buttons & Switches tab, then pressed the button on the yoke that I wished to program, then selected the control PVT Transmit on (sb3)and then selected PVT Transmit off (sb3)for the action when releasing the button.

I think this is all you are required to do? In my SB3 setup which I used before buying my yoke ( 3 weeks ago) I used the left control button on my laptop. This laptop is running WideFS 6.51. I have no other problems with WideFS and can run programs such ASV6 and BAV ACARS on it.

I am a newbie to the yoke so thats why I have not worked out the reverser section yet.

Thanks for any advice

Andrew
