Logitech throttle set up

Recommended Posts

Hello - Please help - I have FSUIPC installed and run FS9. I have a pair of Logitech throttle quadrant set up to make a (running from left to right) speed brake, T1,T2,T3,T4,flap lever configuratrion.

Everything is working ok except T1 which is the 3rd lever in from the left of the dual quadrant set up. T2,3 and 4 are all configured OK but T1 wont. I have used FSUIPC but cannot get it to read the full axis of T1 (the third lever of the left quadrant)

I am going around in mad circles here - I have gone into the FS9 calibrations and done all the tricks in there and used FSUIPC to do the configurations etc but cannot get the engine 1 throttle to match the correct axis on the other 3 throttles

Please Help

Thanks - John - Wokingham, Berks

Even if the inputs from the axes are dissimilar, then proper calibration in FSUIPC will match them all to the range expected by FS9. That's the prupose of calibration. So the minumum and maximum will be made to match. How that is spread across the movement of the axis will not necessarily mach across all of the throttles, however.  That will depend more on the quality of the controls, how well matched they are.

With such an old FSUIPC version (FSUIPC3 for FS9 and before has been out of development for years) there are less facilities for trying to scnchronise the throttle positions, so you have to compensate by simply adjusting the levers to their needed position for the desired thrusts. This is quite realistic -- real throttles rarely match up unless the aircraft is factory-fresh.
