AILERONS


Recommended Posts

Hello all

When starting FS the ailerons are 'stuck' in the operational postion and I have to move the yoke back and forth several times in order to get them to move.

I have tried re calibration and this does appear to work for a while after which it returns to the same state.

Any help would be appreciated.

When starting FS the ailerons are 'stuck' in the operational postion

What's is an "operational" position for ailerons? Surely all positions are "operational"? Which would not be used?

and I have to move the yoke back and forth several times in order to get them to move.

If you really mean that the FS ailerons are not in the position corresponding to the yoke or joystick position (presumably centred), it could simply mean that your start-up situation, the one loaded by FS when it starts, has been saved with the ailerons off-centre. Neither FS nor FSUIPC will send new values UNTIL the control is moved -- and in the case of FSUIPC, moved several times to avoid setting spurious values from an asleep controller.

Alternatively, it could simply mean that the driver is returning that incorrect 'spurious' position. Possibly the device is asleep when you first start up. Check that the Windows power management on the USB devices (the hubs in the Settings - System - Device Manager) is disabled. Windows tends to enable that by default, to save power.

I have tried re calibration and this does appear to work for a while after which it returns to the same state.

"Re-calibration" does nothing but reassert the same values again in the INI file. The problem will either be FS's initial settings, or the inputs being seen.

But surely it should really not matter in any case? As a routine check when getting into any aircraft you should check ALL of the controls out -- move them all, see that they all move the relevant control surfaces. It is a good habit to get into, believe me! ;-)
