Yoke/joystick rudder/steering tiller config.


Recommended Posts

Hi:

I need some help please.  I thought I had this figured out but guess not.  So...I have:

-MFG for rudder

-Honeycomb Yoke

-Thrustmaster Airbus sidestick

None of these are configured in P3D - only FSUIPC

In short, I'm trying to get the "twist" of the Thrustmaster to act as tiller except in the Majestic Dash 8 (-8 as I have it labeled) where I need it to act as "spoilers" in order to use it as a tiller per their configurator.

But, every time I move the twist of the Thrustmaster, both the rudder and rudder pedals of airplanes move.  I can't figure out how to get the twist to stop acting as rudder.  It is NOT configured that way in FSUIPC.

Thanks.

FSUIPC's SteeringTiller control blends rudder and tiller operation, with the amount of blending defined by the MaxSteerSpeed ini parameter (and also the RudderBlendLowest ini parameter) - see the Advanced User guide P11 for details. You could try adjusting this MaxSteerSpeed parameter. However, if you do not want any rudder/tiller blending at all, change your assignment to 'Send to FS as normal axis' and use P3Ds steering tiller control, rather than the one provided by FSUIPC that does this blending.

Thanks.  I'll look that over.

Hi John:

For clarity, I need the "twist" for the joystick to function differently depending on the aircraft in use.  So for Airbus and Boeing aircraft, I need the twist to act as a tiller.  For the majestic dash 8, I need the twist to act as spoilers.  

How do I get the twist function to act appropriately when fly a Boeing vs. dash 8 and vice versa.

I'm afraid if I use the "Send to FS as normal axis", that will mean I cannot set the twist for dual function.

Hope that makes sense.

Thank you.

You use profiles to have different assignments for different aircraft - see the User manuals.

No - you can have completely different assignments for different aircraft if you wish. Please read about FSUIPC profiles.
