Views auto-change and trim is outta control

Recommended Posts

I decided it was time for me to set up some profiles within FSUIPC to ensure my "joysticks" wouldn't conflict with one another.  I created a C172 profile and a Piper Cub profile.  In the Piper Cub profile, I told FSUIPC to ignore all of the yoke, throttle quadrant, and TPM axes inputs and then programmed all of the Saitek X52 joystick axes.  Likewise, in the C172 profile, I told FSUIPC to ignore all of the throttle quadrant, and X52 inputs and programmed the TPM and yoke axes.  Sounds reasonable.

 

When I fired up the C172, everything seemed to work okay.  Then, in the Piper Cub, the elevator trim seemed to have a mind of its own (remember, the Piper Cub has no autopilot to explain this), spinning without any input from me.  When I was able to seemingly affect some trim change, the Cub's trim rotated "nose down" fashion regardless of the direction I moved the Saitek trim wheel.  I changed it in FSUIPC to both normal and reverse modes, but that didn't see to have any impact.

 

At one point in time, I selected "Enable Controllers" from within FSX and when I returned to Free Flight, the "views" within FSX automatically began to cycle at a rather high rate of speed.  I enabled FSX control over the controllers in an attempt to regain control of the trim wheel, leaving the remainder of the controls to FSUIPC.

 

When I disabled FSC control over the controllers, the auto-view-cycling ceased.  Obviously, something in FSX > Settings > Controls is amiss.

 

Any thoughts?

 

Thanks.

Best NEVER assign in both FSX and FSUIPC. If you are assigning in FSUIPC, disable controllers completely in FSX, and anytime something seems amiss, like axis conflicts, check that it is still off.
