Unable to calibrate throttle control in fsuipc


Recommended Posts

after downloading fsx into my flight sim all ready having P3d4 installed, I was not able to calibrate my dual engine home made throttle control which has worked very well with P3d4 before this move.

 I did find that I had a few "weak" 10k pots so I replaced them.  I used Di View  to check the movement of all controls and that is when I found some weak.  Now all (6) are working well.  However I still don't get any data on the Eng. #1 and #2 throttle controls and the mixture don't work as they should, but they do give me a little data. using fsuipc to do my assignments and calibrating.   I am using the Leo Bodnar (BUO836A) card and all show good using DI View program.

Installing FSX, or anything else for that matter, should have no effect whatsoever on your P3D/FSUIPC installation.

I am a bit confused by your issue. You say you are unable to calibrate your throttle, but the ini file you attached is pretty empty and shows no assignments whatsoever in FSUIPC. Where have you assigned your throttle? It needs to be assigned before being calibrated.

Your files show that you have installed P3d, and therefore also FSUIPC5, under C:\Program Files. If you have installed there, under a windows protected folder (Program Files), then you will need to run P3D (and also FSUIPC) with administrator privileges (as well as all other P3D/FSUIPC clients). Are you doing this?

Your log file shows that you are using two Leo Bodner devices - are these separate cards or on the same card?

Sorry about the confusion.   in regards to  your questions.

1.  need to run P3D (and also FSUIPC) with administrator privileges (as well as all other P3D/FSUIPC clients). Are you doing this?   yes

2.  Your log file shows that you are using two Leo Bodner devices - are these separate cards or on the same card?  yes

The second BUO836A is used for switches only.  I will tell you that I should have stated that not only could I not calibrate my controls I also could not assign them in fsuipc.  I am sending you a new set of files showing the assignments and calibration.  (I hope)  I can see why you were confused.

Now I can see you have your axis assigned and calibrated, so I am not sure what the issue actually is...

Maybe its this:

Quote

[Profile.Baron 58]
1=Beech Baron 58 w G1000

You have created this profile, but there is no [Axis.Baron 58] section, not even an empty one. Try deleting that ptofile, before you start P3D, and then create the profile again. You should then be asked if you want to import your general axis assignments and go from there.

I will do that but it will not help. In the .ini file under joy stick calibration, the only ones that work are Aileron,Elevator,Rudder. and with the BUO836A the only ones that work right  are Prop Pitch1 & 2.  I checked this inside aircraft.  I only get a data reading when the control is full back or full forward. it does let me assign  a name. (i e throttle,mixture)

Aileron=-16223,928,928,16031
Elevator=-12497,3808,3808,16191
Rudder=-16320,-97,-97,16383
Throttle1=-16384,-512,512,16383/32
Throttle2=-16383,-512,512,16384/48
Mixture1=-15447,8192,8192,16351/32
Mixture2=-16383,8192,8192,16384/48
PropPitch1=-15407,0,512,16239/32
PropPitch2=-16335,0,512,16319/48

It could be that the axes have been flagged as digital axes in the registry. To correct this, see the following FAQ entry (this was written for saitek controllers but applies to all):
