When having button problems


Recommended Posts

I started flying the default mooney bravo and was having problems setting the flaps. With my switches, I could only move them full up or full down. I checked my FSUIPC setting and it was set for incremental. I fought it for an hour last night then gave up and shut down the computer,

About 15 minutes away from it, I got the idea to check all my settings. I am running FSUIPC and Linda because of the additional switch commands Linda has that I could not find on FSUIPC like lights on and off, rather than simplyt toggle.

I went down and checked to make sure my yoke was disabled in FSX. It was. Then I went to Linda and sure enough, both Linda and FSUIPC were controlling the button assigned to flaps which must have been giving two commands to the one switch operation causing them to go full instead of incremental.

Lesson one - If you are having problems with a switch, check to make sure the switch is not programmed for the Yoke/ joystick and FSUIPC at the same time (or any other program you may be running such as Linda).

Lesson two - When having problems, sometimes it takes getting away from the problem for a while. Usually, the solution surfaces while you are away.
