Using Single Brake Lever

Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm using P3D v5 with the registered version of FSUIPC 6 with the PMDG 737NGXu. I have a Saitek yoke and 2 Saitek throttle quadrants. Unfortunately my Saitek rudder pedals have failed so no toe brakes for now.

I set up a spare throttle lever 2(left hand quadrant) for the brake (left axis)  in P3D Axis Assignments which recognised the throttle lever as "Y Axis."

At p. 44 of the May 2021 FSUIPC User Manual it states:

If you have a single brake lever or pedal assigned to “BRAKES” in P3D, be sure to use that single axis to calibrate both the left and right brake exactly the same (right-hand side of page 2 of 6), otherwise every time you brake you will swerve to one side. (my underlining)

Going to page 2 of 6 in FSUIPC Joystick Calibration the throttle lever is recognised in Left Brake (direct). How do I use that same lever to calibrate both the left and right brake to stop and swerving?

How have you assigned your lever - in P3D or in FSUIPC?  To what control have you assigned the lever?

You can try assigning the axis in FSUIPC 'Send direct to FSUIPC calibration' to both the LeftBrake and RightBrake controls, and then calibrating both....

Thanks for your reply.

I assigned the lever in FSUIPC 6 using "Send direct to FSUIPC Calibration." I've unticked P3D Controller. In the FSUIPC box I entered "LeftBrake." How do I  "Send direct to FSUIPC calibration' to both the LeftBrake and RightBrake controls" as you suggest. Do I replace LeftBrake with RightBrake? If I do that on Calibration p.2 I can then only calibrate the right brake.
