stretch1365 Posted September 17, 2012 Report Share Posted September 17, 2012 Hi all, I have been using FSX for a number of years, but only this weekend decided to buy a Saitek yoke, rudder pedals and trim wheel with an additional Throttle Quadrant. After installing their software and trying all weekend to set mode 1 with Mixture, Prop and Throttle and Mode 2 with Spoilers, Throttle and Flaps I gave it up as a bad job! Nothing worked as it should, so frustrating. Anyway I know everyone goes on about how useful FSUIPC is in FSX, so today I bought the payware version to sort out my problems. After a day playing around with settings and reading the manual I have the basics of what I was looking for, including setting up a Joystick for those planes without Yokes, brilliant.............I found it so good and most things worked first time, even reverse thrust on my jets! I do have just a few questions however, I have set up profiles as suggested in the manual, Props, Jets, and Props with sticks, however I have noticed that each assigned profile only applies to the aircraft that was loaded at the time I set the profile up. So if I have say 10 Carenado Cessna 172's in different liveries, only the one on the screen at the time gets the "prop profile". Is there a way to apply my "prop profile" to all of them at the same time, or do I have to apply my profile to each individual 172 as I use it? I'm also trying to set up a profile for the Aerosoft Catalina, and have everything working except the Mixture which I am trying to set up using a lever on the throttle quadrant but indexed in 1/3rds with Lean, best, and Rich but the Mixture levers on the Catalina don't seem to move with the lever on the quadrant. I Know this isn't a simple Axis setting like Prop or Throttle and is taxing me a little? I've also noticed that since installing FSUIPC, FSX seems to pause for a second every now and then and reload the "traffic" which I found a little odd, once done it returns to where it was, but is there a way to either not see the "loading traffic bar" or not reload traffic so often. It's maybe just a setting issue not a fault!. I wonder if it's something to do with FSUIPC creating those saved settings in case I crash? Anyway, sorry to ramble on but those are my only queries after a much better day than I had all weekend! thanks for a great product. regards. David Phillips.
