Getting yoke and pedal settings to "stick"?

Recommended Posts

So, I have X-Plane 10 installed (trying to move to it instead of using FSX, which is no longer supported)... I configured my CH Products Yoke and Pedals just fine, but when I go back into XP10 later, the settings are gone. I leave my controls plugged in, so it's not due to them being removed and added to different ports. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks!

 

P.S.--New here on the forums. My name is Troy, I'm a computer guy and fly for real, too (instrument airplane pilot), so feel free to ask any questions related to real-life procedures....

Hi Troy and welcome. I have the CH products too. I find that I must remember to start the CH manager program and download the joystick map I set up for Xplane, if I don't I don't the joystick doesn't work. I'm in Windows 7 so I use Windows 7 Application Launcher to do this.

 

Once you've created the map in CH Manager and you have saved it - you can then load the map directly - it should be associated with CH Manager and it will then start up CH manager, load the map and then close CH manager. I added this into the Launcher - you could also use a bat file to do the same thing.

 

You don't need to actually assign any commands in CH manager, youj could just leave all the controls as DX - and then assign them in Xplane.
