Roger, no need to ditch your yoke, do a search on this forum, there is a knack to get it going, and it is not hard.

settings>ch yoke>aileron sliders all the way to the right--elevator sliders all the way to the right. both nulls all the way to the left. Recalibrate be sure you select ch yoke ---make sure center point is really center if not then manually center before moving to the next step. Various buttons set as desired. I do not use throttles as I have separate Saitek throttle module for that. It works for me and PMDG 737 NGX---An added benefit is that all my airplanes handle better---Pmdg,leveld,capt sim, feelthere and yes even the default airplanes. Skipper

I have been using the CH yoke for years and the biggest problem I had was using the CH Control Manager. I deleted it, let FSX do the default assignments, then customized them in FSX, never had a problem since.

Hi, Roger - I think you are continuing a discussion we were having in this post: http://forum.avsim.net/topic/348649-trying-to-manually-fly-vnav-via-the-fd-is-tough-because/page__view__findpost__p__2110118 A very common problem with the Saitek yoke - and it sounds like the exact same symptoms with the CH yoke - is that the roll axis (aileron) calibration is incorrect. You never mentioned if you actually looked at the calibration to see if the axis was indeed centered. The solution is to recalibrate once in FSX and the AC is not moving (eg. at the gate or stopped on a taxiway). A quick-and-dirty way to do this (at least it works with the Saitek) is to simply unplug the USB connection to the PC and reconnect it (again with the AC stationary). LeeF

Before you recalibrate it take it apart and spray some silicone oil on the moving parts. Then recalibrate it and you will have a smooth and sensitive control column.vololiberista

+1 on the silicon ... I have the CH Eclipse yoke, I use LINDA (FSUIPC's intuitive interface) powerful, flexible, and simple. CH Control Manager was a nightmare for me, mainly due to conflicting messages from FSX and FSUIPC.
