Steering Tiller not straight at start-up


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have recently upgraded my PC hard- and software to P3D V4/4.1. Since then I experince the issue that at first attempt to move the aircraft forward it turns right. Once I move my (separate) steering tiller the NLG goes straight, and then everything is ok.

- I have configured my two Saitek Rudder pedals, and the tiller, as 'sent direct to FSUIPC' for calibration

- I have disabled all controller axes in P3D 

- The USB controller functionality in W10 shows that rudder pedals and tiller potentiometers are working fine

- Despite the above, after P3D start up, but before applying any controller input, I observe an 'initial' setting of the tiller axis of -4320 input, although it's calibrated

 nullzone is at 677:

It may be a silly thing, but I don't get to it.

Any idea?

 

Many thanks,

Johannes

Do you mean you have to move your tiller to the left? If so then obviously it is not properly calibrated with the centre at 0.

If you mean that any movement of the tiller fixes it, then either the tiller itself is faulty or dirty, or, more likely, the default flight you are starting off with has is deflected. If this is the case just get it set straight and re-save the flight.

That seems exactly as if the setting in your flight is -4320, because unless the tiller axis is jittering (i.e. changing values on its own), FSUIPC won't see any input whatsover from it until you move it.

The same applies to all axes. They are not polled, they just send values when they change.

Hi Pete,

as I expected it may be a silly problem, and you have well spotted it: I had baked the misalignment into my Default flight .......

Most probably I would never have identified that. We have a say in german: sometimes you don't the forest because of the trees.

Many thanks, Johannes
