hello, today I mounted my new 4 throttle levers for the 747 and noticed the following issue:
when I reverse throttle 2 or 4, the spoilers are going up
when I increase throttle 1 or 3, the spoilers are going down

No Buttons in the PMDG FMC assigned

P3Dv4.5
FSUIPC 5.151

Any help?

Hi Dieter,

first can you check that you have controllers disabled in P3D.

Can you also activate logging (via FSUIPC's Logging tab) for Axis controls, Events & Button and key operations. Start your sim and reproduce your issues, then post/attach your log file.

Thanks,

John

Hi Dieter,

that log file doesn't contain anything! You haven't activated the required logging options (see above comment), and you pressed the 'New Log' button which cut the log short.

Can you activate those logging options, reproduce the issue and then post the complete log file - don't press the 'New log' button (this simply stops the current log file and starts a new one).

Thanks,

John

Hi Dieter,

the issue may be due to a calibration issue between PMDG and FSUIPC, although I'm unsure as to why this would activate the spoilers.

You are currently assigning all your axis 'Direct to FSUIPC calibration'. For PMDG Boeings, you should assign to FS controls and not calibrate in FSUIPC.  The PMDG aircraft intercept the FS controls, in the same way as FSUIPC does for calibration, and use them directly. If you use “Direct to ...” (or even FS controls and then calibrate in FSUIPC) then after calibration FSUIPC sends the controls on to the sim at a lower priority level (to avoid the infinite loop). This results in two, probably different, values arriving in the sim and maybe at slightly different times, causing issues.

Therefore please try switching your PMDG axis assignments to 'Send to FS as normal axis' and do not calibrate in FSUIPC. Also still leave controllers disabled in the sim.
