Aileron axes calibration not saving


Recommended Posts

Not a really huge deal but every time i get into a new A/C or start the sim i need to calibrate my aileron axes. I am not sure if the issue is the Saitek yoke of FSUIPC. if anyone is aware of a fix please let me know. 

 

Running p3d V3.2xx

REG ver of current FUSIPC 

wind 10 64 

Saitek pro flight yoke 

 

Thanks Lee

FSUIPC cannot lose or change the calibration values you've set, assuming you set them in FSUIPC. Perhasp you've created a Profile for a particular aircraft and ave not assigned others to it yet? 

 

I really can't help with the scant information you've provided. I would need to see your settings -- you can paste the INI file from the Modules folder here, and tell me which aircaft it is you have problems with.

 

REG ver of current FUSIPC 

 

 

What does "current FSUIPC" mean? Please ALWAYS state version numbers.

 

Anyway, if it isn't at least 4.949h (and preferably 4.949i, the current interim update in the Download Links subforum), please update and try again first.

Pete sorry for the lack of info I was going through a full reinstall, My explanation was poor as well.. the values set by FSUIPC stay the same and do not change that is correct. I noticed when i was taking off i was turning to the right/left (like a crosswind) i found that if i reset the calibration for center  in fsuipc for my ailerons the problem was solved. I am thinking it not FSUIPC but my hardware of hardware driver.  I have posted a link to a photo of fsuipc as you can see in the center value is different than to current center my joystick this is not aircraft dependent it just happens randomly.  

Below is the INI as well. 

OFF TOPIC

Speaking of drivers i read your post on Avsim and posted a reply asking how to get an older display driver to install on win 10(yes i have the studders to). as windows wont let me install it because its an older driver. I have been tweeking for three days now trying to get this thing to stop stuttering.  

 

 Thanks for the great programs I am totally in love with wide FS it has made a non computer gut like me able to simply add programs to a second PC. 

 

 

FSUIPC V4.949h Reg ver with Wide fs reg as well

Pictures aren't really needed, just the numbers.

 

Looking at the calibration values you've set:

 

Aileron=-16380,-3118,512,16380
Elevator=-16380,0,0,16380
Rudder=-16380,0,128,16380
 
you really haven't allowed much leeway in the centre (none for elevators!) for normal and likely variations in the actual axis centres. You've also not allowed ANY slack at the extremes. normally needed to ensure that you have the full range available on the aircraft.
 
I have always found that the values supplied by most joysticks vary a bit - humidity, temperature and other factors affect the resistance in the pots used. Optical ones may not suffer so much,. On top of this. the centering action is often by a spring or piece of elastic not an actual detente, so its position on the pot will vary. I've always calibrated centre by not omly moving the yoke to both sides of its sprung centre, but turning it to the extremes each way too and letting go  -- often it ends up different depending on which side you took it.
 
Note that you can lessen the bad effects of being a little off-centre by using one of the calibration slopes with a flattened centre.
