Continuous Turn to the Left


Recommended Posts

Hello - I have just recently run into an issue where I am getting constant left aileron input from my Saitek PRo Flight yoke. I have had everything assigned, calibrated, and working fine. All of sudden, today while flying my PMDG 737 with the AP engaged at altitude I began to snake back and forth along my flight path and then violently rolled to an almost inverted position. I have re-assigned and re-calibrated all the axises with no improvement. It is effecting all aircraft.

 

Please help!

 

Thanks,

Well obviously something has changed. Are you sure FSX hasn't re-enabled its controller assignments and it interacting with your FSUIPC assignments? That's the most usual cause. It tends to do this sometimes when it thinks the controller is newly attached.

 

Otherwise I can only think you have a bad connection or a faulty yoke, which gives occasional disconnections -- that would result is such a bad reading and no doubt it would be intermittent. Have you tried just watching the values in the assignments or calibration tabs, or in Windows own calibration applet (game controllers or whatever)?

 

You can use FSUIPC's axis event logging, in the logging tab, to see what is going on. If you (temporarily) run FS in Windowed mode you can enable also the Console Log, and see the changes in real time on screen.
