Flight Illusion


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

Is the Flight Illusion Transponder visible to FSUIPC so I can program the rotary switch, the only thing it can't do in prepar3d v5.2 (or any prepar3d version for that matter)

 

LM did say they would probably incorporate it many years ago...alas fell on deaf ears..

I cannot advise on the compatibility of hardware. All I can tell you is that FSUIPC will only recognise HID joystick type devices for direct assignments.  Other types of HID devices can be used via the lua com library. 

I can provide you with a trial license if you would like to try it.

I have just updated to the latest release and it seems to have broken the connection to all my Flight Illusion units...

Which version did you update from? What do you mean by 'broken'?

Can I have a link to the previous version please.

No, only the latest version is available and supported. We need to determine what is causing your issue. Can you please explain what your issue is, and show me your .ini and .log files.

Hi John,

 

Crisis averted...User error...Nothing to do with FSUIPC, somehow the power cable had come out/loose meaning the control unit was not getting power.

 

Just seemed coincidental.

 

All is well now. My sincerest apologies..

 

On the other issue regarding my devices/assignments dropping out it occurs when my Saitek trim wheel "Comes alive" during flight, I hear the ping as the device connects and then all controls freeze.

Did you check your USB Hun's device's power management settings? Make sure 'Allow computer to turn off the device ti save power' is unchecked.

All devices will be scanned again when a new device is detected, which can take a few seconds. Do you not regain control?

No problem - glad its now working.

Ok. I'll check this and see if I can automatically reload on USB device reconnections if/when in a flight. However, better to try and stop the re-connection if possible.

In regards to the USB hub..there is one Fresno logic that continually resets itself to save power no matter what I do...very frustrating..

Is the trim wheel connected to this hub? If so try moving it. In fact, try changing it regardless of the hub you are currently using.

Thanks John,

 

I will try that..

 

I just checked the hub and gone to windows allowing it to turn off, even though I unchecked it yesterday, always goes to checked..

 

VERY annoying..Trouble is I need the increase in USB ports...

Treat yourself to a decent powered hub (or PCI card) for christmas! There are various recomendations if you search the forum (and probably more on avsim.com).
This is the one I currently use (and have not had any issues): https://www.amazon.es/gp/product/B0797NWDCB/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o03_s00
