FSUIPC Joystick Disable


Recommended Posts

Is there an option within FSUIPC to disable the joysticks with a key press.

There is a Joystick on/off option within FSX's own control menu, but it only controls aspects that have been calibrated through the FSX control menu.

My throttles that are calibrated through FSUIPC still function.

I would like to be able to disable the throttles when the autothrottle is active to stop the throttles overriding the auto throttle.

Thanks,

Phil

It's been a long time, but I think, instead of "disabling" I assigned "nothing", which I suppose is not the same thing but produces the same result.

I think I also raised the Null and lowered the sensitivity.

Assigning that to a button control...???

Not joysticks as a whole, no.

FS normally does that itself for the FS autothrottle, so I assume you mean for some add-on which has its own autothrottle control? FSUIPC will only send throttle changes on to FS is they change, so the secret, with an otherwise jittery throttle axis, is to park it someplace where there are no input changes-- like in your null zone at idle, or beyond the top calibrated max thrust position.

Anyway, have you tried the

Throttles Off

Throttles On

Throttles toggle

controls available in the FSUIPC assignment drop downs for buttons or keys?

Regards

Pete

If the aircraft in question is the iFly B737, the best answer is just to turn the throttle sensitivity down a notch in the iFly configuration tool, just for the record.

(That's the most commonly complained about aircraft with this issue!)
