Small movement of joystick throttle should give large movement of aircraft throttle


Recommended Posts

In the PMDG747 I realise that I need to move the joystick throttle unrealistically far forward until the aircraft starts moving, hence I would like to get the effect that a small movement of the joystick  throttle on the lower end of the axis corresponds to a larger movement of the PMDG747 throttle. I imagine that I can do that by simply creating a suitable sensitivity curve (is there another way?) but somehow I haven't been very successful so far. Similarly the elevator responds very late if I draw the joystick back which leads to bumpy takeoffs (aircraft suddently jumps off the runway) and ugly flares (only millimeters of joystick movement decide between flying the aircraft into the runway or stalling it by excessive flare). Any help appreciated. (The joystick is an old SAITEK Hotas.)

Best regards

I thought PMDG were reputed to provide quite realistic aircraft implementations? Have you asked then for advice on this?

The curves available in FSUIPC calibration offer extremes both ways. However, I'm not sure PMDG aircraft very much appreciate throttles calibrated by FSUIPC as the way that works bypasses the inputs the aircraft are looking for.

If the PMDG parameters set for their aircraft are really so bad (I see you have that for elevator too) then I would have thought they would have fixed it by now. these things are probably adjustable in the Aircraft.CFG file, but I don't know enough about that.

I suspect your best bet is to ask in the PMDG support forum. But first also check that your device is properly calibrated in Windows and, if assigned in FS, the sensitivity and null zones as set properly (max and min respectively).
