CH Yoke and Pedals - it is a mess

Recommended Posts

The two of them worked fine as long as I did nothing but use the Standard WinXP drivers. But the moment I tried to use the CH software for assigning keys the trouble began.I installed the software and started mapping keys. Not two complicated but without any help from CH it is not exactly userfriendly. I started up my rig only to find out that now the toebrakes are applied constantly. Heaven knows why. Next thing the rudder pedals were only capable of a 5 degree movement of the airplane's rudders. New key assignments within FS2002 did not work either.The only thing that worked was the new key mapping (Button 1 for ATC1, Button 2 for ATC2.)Then I started FS2002 without the key mapper running. Nothing but trouble again.Only after a complete uninstall of the CH software and a reinstall of the USB devices I got the stuff running satisfactory again (but now ATC1 and ATC2 again cannot be controlled by the Yoke).And to be honest the quality of the Yoke is ridiculous for this price. The elevator axis does not allow at all for sensitive steering (mechanically that is, plz do not suggest to change software sensitivity).This was the last product I bought from CH. Seems I really have to buy one of them real expensive Yokes.Rgds,Alex

I do not doubt that it can be done. But the way the setup worked out for me is ridiculous. If I compare that stuff to e.g. GoFlight that is a lot more versatile and potentially complicated, the CH program is crap.Search this forum for post of people that have problems with the CH stuff. I do not think that 10 pages of your browser window would be sufficent.Alex
