Setting yoke switches for Autothrottle

Recommended Posts

Hi Pete and everybody else,

I'm now using a yoke for my simming, the Saitek ProFlight Cessna.

All buttons set but for two on the right hand side.

One button is for use in saiteks own profile editor for changing modes to increase the number of commands per switch/button but i'm not using the saitek editor. Can the mode switch be used via fsuipc for the same effect?

The rhs on-off-on switch I have set to autothrottle dec and inc, ie left and right with no command on release.

My problem is that when on the ground I have unlimited control of the autothrottle value, I can adjust up and down as expected so for example can select 178 as v2+20 as my initial climb speed, what i want to do as i retract flaps is increase speed to the 'bug up' speed which is around 220knts approx, but what is happening as soon in flight is that the speed can only be adjusted in steps of 10 so I get 188 198 208 etc, not the single steps as when on the ground.

I'm fairly certain I've read about this problem but I cannot find the same text about this, is there anybody out there that knows a fix for this.

regards

Steve

Hi Reinhard,

Thanks for the link, I'll try the renaming of the file it mentions, it wasn't that fsuipc didnt see the mode switch, it read it ok but I couldn't set different commands on the same switch.

regards

Hi,

 

I don't have the file mentioned in that link but that file is a profile file and I assume I don't have one because I'm not using the profile editor for the

Yoke.

 

regards

 

Steve
