Saitek Cessna Trim Wheel - Not initially recognised

Recommended Posts

Pete

I have recently acquired a Saitek Cessna Trim Wheel (VID 06A3, PID 0C2D) and assigned it to the Elevator Trim axis. FSUIPC5 logs it as but does not initially action any input. After the trim wheel has been operated the device reload and then FSUIPC recognises the trim input.  The FSUIPC5.log shows the device reconnecting at this point. The attached load also includes LINDA logging.

If this a known problem?

Hi,

as the log shows it connects in the first place and reconnects later, as you say after use it. Maybe the Hub where it is connected to is overloaded?

As you know FSUIPC can only see what Windows sees and when it reconnects in FSUIPC that means FSUIPC gets a callback from Windows that a device has been connected.

Also please start FS and close it fully without moving the TrimWheel and keep a copy of the FSUIPC5.JoyScan.csv file (Modules folder). Then start again FS and move the TrimWheel to get devices reloaded and it is correct seen and then close FS. Copy of the FSUIPC5.JoyScan.csv file and send both of them.

Or possibly the USB port still has power management turned on in Windows Device Manager. This option is defaulted on, and the option can cause a seldom used input to power off ("go to sleep"). Always turn off the feature in the properties of all listed USB devices/hubs in device Manager.

I just have to remember to function the trim wheel before flight.

Attached are the before and after joy files.

Well, the scan returns the same results for the Trim Wheel in both cases:

Y, x1E, x06A3, x0BD4, Pro Flight Cessna Trim Wheel, 4, 4, 0, {627C8510-4FB6-11E8-8001-444553540000},
{627C8510-4FB6-11E8-8001-444553540000}, {627C8510-4FB6-11E8-8001-444553540000}, Y, Y

so I really don't understand why it isn't functioning correctly like any other joystick connection. Weird.

I bought my SAITEK trim wheel long time ago - it's an old story and not FSUIPC related:
After starting/restarting Windows, one has to turn the wheel until the Windows USB device detection sound comes up.

It's a problem in the USB controller of the wheel.
