FXS Saitek Throttle Quad Problems


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have over 2000 hours on FXS but not really Techy guy with the software configs. I have Saitek Pro: yoke with plug in Quad, Rudder peds and seperate quad with USB direct into PC. I have quad 1 set up as (left to right) Spoliers, Eng 1, Eng 2 and quad 2 as: Eng 3 , Eng 4, Flaps. All have been calibrated in FSX but I can't get Eng 3 & 4 to idle less than 50% and they don't have full throttle. Furthermore in the calibration X/Y box the cross hair seems to jump on these controls from the bottom Right to near centre with very little movement on the lever. I've set null to 0% and sensitive to 100% but no effect? I don't know if i have something wrong with the hardware on quad 2 or if this can be sorted in configs? Any help would be very much appreciated.

Not sure why you've posted this here. If you were using FSUIPC to calibrate then maybe I could help somewhat, but perhaps not a lot -- the problem you describe is typical of Saitek installations and I think it needs a registry hack to fix. But you'll need to go to Saitek's forum for the details as I don't have them.

Sorry for posting in wrong section I really am very new to this techy stuff and I am mainly an FSX user. I don't know what FSUIPC is but I can see the links to download it. Do you think this programme is something that could help with configs or am I best to just take this up with Saitek?

PS I stumbled across this website in the search of flight sim answers and your name crops up a lot so I posted here first. Any help will be greatly received. Many thanks. J

You really need to get the problem sorted out with Saitek. FSUIPC can give you more flexibility and more accurate calibrations, but it would cost you money and you would be disappointed if it didn't fix the issue, which I suspect it can't.

 

I do think it is something to do with values in the registry which can be fixed relatively easily once you know how, but I am not a Saitek user and cannot help directly. There will be people on the Saitek forum who can help with Saitek matters. That's why there are specific forums for specific products! ;-)
