newbie needs help

Recommended Posts

I have just ordered x-plane and download the trial version. A friend gave me his old Saitek x-52 ( not pro) joystick and hand control. I went into settings and tried to sync some settings to the joystick. I could get the power or throttle speed on the hand controller but my joystick wouldn't not really control the left or right or take off. when I tried to take off I let go off the brake and started to increase speed and my plae went craxy right then started doing circle then when I let go it went straight only with no power basically. is there any template to help set up this x-52 doing lots of ready and it seem really complicated but it will be fun when I get it working rigfht and practice

 

thanks

It's hard to tell exactly, but by the sound of it you need to map your joystick's twist function to control the rudder, which should help you keep aligned with the runway on takeoff. Check out this recent video for help on setting up your controls:
