there should be a check box beside the button assignment that says "reverse" click on that and see if that works, as for the throttles already startig in the middle you have to set sensitivities and null zones in the options on the menu bar for said throttle.

It looks like your throttle control has been assigned to the yaw/rudder axis which has a middle stop. Go into FS and recheck your assignments.A rudder control output is equivalent to +value at one max deflection passing through a 0 value and then a -value for deflection in the other direction. If your version of Win has the Game Controller calibration in whatever the Control Panel window is, run it to check the throttle option as move it. It should go from near 0 with the wheel or slider at bottom to full value when turned or moved up. If not calibrate it. Once this is OK recheck your FS assignments and insure there is no duplication. Normally throttles do not require a reverse setting. That is frequently required for toe brakes. Finally as posted check your sensitivity and null zone. Remember to run through assignments for first normal than slew operation. Those are exclusive.If your stick has its own software driver that would sit between it and the Windows Game Controller so maybe there are settings there to check.Are you talking about the (now obsolete) CH Virtual Pilot Pro yoke and throttle? This was an analog device. Did it have the CH Control Manager? If so check that out. CH Control Manager probably I'd guess not run it Win 7. You should not require it anyway.You also might want to look at this extended thread at ch-hangar.com.

The first post that showed up on a search for Virtual Pilot Pro may have been yours posted today. http://www.ch-hangar.com/forum/showthread....rtual+pilot+proAdditional help would be at stickworks.com perhaps.You may have to upgrade to a more modern USB yoke and optionally peds. Be sure they are supported in Win 7 and I would expect so. Try working without the CH Control Manager which might swap things around making it very confusing. I have the USB Flightstick, Pro Throttle, and Pedals. I do have a fully registered FSUIPC which allows me to use non-linear (sensitivity varies along axis) sensitivity for rudder/nosewheel control which for me makes taxiing easier. If you can get CH Control Manager to work you might be able to get that there.When installing CH Control Manager you'll have to run it as an administrator as well as when using it. I also think CH Control Manager may only work with USB devices.
