Throttle calibration problem

Recommended Posts

I have 2 Saitek TQs in my simpit. The first 2 axes on the first TQ are behaving strangely in FSX(FSUIPC 4.859d).

The Windows calibration tool(Win7-64 bit) shows them behaving normally, a 50% movement of the axis produces a 50% movement in the game controller window, 75% gives 75% and so on.

However in FSUIPC the calibration does not follow this profile. A 99% movement of the axis stick causes the calibration in FSUIP to move fromm-16384 to 0, the last 1% movement of the axis causes FSUIPC caplibration togo from0 to+16384. The 3rd axis on that TQ behaves normally, as do other 3 on the 2nd TQ. This applies to any profile I try to use.

I think this is caused by me calibrating wrongly somewhere so I deleted the axis calibrations in the .ini file and redid them today. There is no change in the response.

Cleary I have overlooked something or done somthing wrong but cannot find it. Below is the (I hope!) relevant sections of the ini file for single engine profile but thebehavoir also occurs in the twin ingine profile as well.

Can you please tell me what I have done wrong!!

Thanks

It is not related to fSUIPC at all. It is a really well-known bug in the Saitek installation and is fixed by a Registry change. Please check the Saitek support site. I really cannot support their products.

thanks for that, I have tried the fix on their website, tried unplugging the TQ and deleting all entries in the .xml file and allowing fsx to rebuild it. All to no avail.

I have contacted them for a solution.

Thanks for your help.
