FSUIPC Controller Axis Resolution


Recommended Posts

I use FSUIPC for my power controls: Power, Props, Mixture/Condition Levers. This has been bothering me for awhile, and I've never gotten over it, but I can't figure out how to improve the axis resolution while using FSUIPC. In other words, very very small adjustments are not recognized, and are input as a "step." In FSUIPC I have them sent through "Send DIRECT to FSUIPC for calibration" My current hardware is the PFC throttle quadrant with the Twin turboprop levers. The PFC is connected via USB and is recognized by windows as a joystick. I know it's not my controller because in the PFC software, it registers very tiny movements. While in FSUIPC, it shows movements in steps. Is there a setting I'm missing that can increase the resolution of inputs? Thanks for the help.

The Delta value, in the Axis assignment options, determines the minimum change which will be used. It defaults to 256 which, for a Windows calibrated axis (-16k to +16k) gives 128 steps. You can reduce the Delta value if you wish (read the description of this value in the User Guide first).

The PFC throttle quadrant I have (a very early COM-based one, not recognised by Windows) used axes with 0nly a range of 0-127 at best. They work fine for me. But perhaps PFC have improved the pots they use by now. The same low res pots were used in their flight controls (rudder, aileron, elevator, tiller) but I had those replaced by higher resolution ones and connected them via Bodnar USB boards.
