Mad Catz V.1 stick nto registering in fsuipc4

Recommended Posts

I have the Mad Catz V.1 flight stick, and I have just encountered a big problem. I have just finished a 14 hour project to make my own rudder pedals- they are almost identical to those in the link.

I used a rotary potentiometer, rather than a sliding potentionmeter. I had no bearing so the potentiometer was the pivot point. I am using P3D V3.2. I was trying to get the axis to register in FSUIPC4 (full version), but it wouldn't. I then tried other axes on the joystick, but again, they wouldn't register. So it wasn't bad wiring on my part, but fsuipc was playing up. It did register the hat-switch as an axis though, but that's supposed to be a button/switch.
I then  looked on the internet for drivers and noticed that the were drivers for the joystick for windows 7/8, but not windows 10, if that could be the reason. I hadn't used the joystick since i had updated from 8.1 to 10, but i assumed it would work since my microsoft sidewinder from 2002, works perfectly.
Although having said this, it would register in p3d settings in controls.
So is there any way that the joystick would register as this is so frustrating as after 14 hours of work!
Thanks a lot

Ok- the panel has noticed the joystick, but when i calibrate the potentiometer, as soon as it passes halfway, it jumps to the max rotation (as the PC sees it). I will have a talk to RS components (where i bought it from), and see it's the potentiometer which is playing up.
