Problem with throttle axis


Recommended Posts

In my plane Sting S4 I have problem with the throttle axis. In general it works as supposed but frequently it makes jump to the middle position. And when I see the values in FSUIPC calibration the values does indeed make strange jumps. When I changed plane to C172 the problem was not there and then switch back to the Sting the problem was back. When I first assigned axes to it I selected them to be based on Just Flight Piper Arrow which is a plane where I have also seen this problem. So I removed the entry for the Sting under [Profile.Piper Turbo Arrow] with the intention to reset the Sting assigment and set up them from scratch again. But that does not work. Under msfs own control assigment I have empty profiles for my controllers which are TM Hotas Warthoug Joystick and Throttle. I find no duplicate assignment for the throttle. I attach my fsuipc.ini

First, you are using an old and unsupported version of FSUIPC7, v7.3..15. The latest and only supported version is 7.3.21 - please update.

But your Sting S4 is currently assigned to your C172 profile. In this profile, you have multiple throttle and mixture assignments::


0=AZ,256,D,6,0,0,0    -{ DIRECT: Mixture }-
1=AU,256,D,6,0,0,0    -{ DIRECT: Mixture }-
8=EX,256,D,4,0,0,0    -{ DIRECT: Throttle }-
9=EZ,256,D,4,0,0,0    -{ DIRECT: Throttle }-

This is always a bad idea as the assignments can interfere causing the axis to jump. You also have dual mixture assignments in the Kodiak and Antonov AN-2 profiles.
I see no such problem in your Piper Arrow profile, so I am surprised that you get this issue in that aircraft...

One of your [LvarOffsets.KODIAK] entries is also invalid as it contains no size/type specifier:



You should also consider using sub-strings for your aircraft profile names, e.g. change


1=Kodiak 100 Aviation Sans Frontieres
2=Kodiak 100 Legacy Livery 6



1=Kodiak 100

Once you have corrected this, please try again. Any issues, please re-attach your FSUIPC7.ini and also your FSUIPC7.log file,.
