Elite Mel Throttle Quadrant for P3D

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone

 

I have been waiting for over a year now for Elite to bring a driver out so that I can start using my 'Expensive' Mel Throttle Quadrant again

 

I decided to email them again last week and was told that a driver will be available soon .......Hmmmmmmm!!

 

Just wondering if anyone has been able to get it going in P3D v2,4  ..... and if they have what is the secret

 

I have tried using FSUIPC to control the quadrant but sadly it doesn't work

 

Looking forward to hearing any replies on this

HI All

I too have a the MEL throttle Quadrant with the same problem as Paul. I have had a reply from Brian Jenkins at Ellite claiming the programmers are working on the P3d driver and promising it very soon.

 

 

That was 2nd Dec 2014.   I also got a similar reply in August 2014 claiming it'd be ready in about a month.

 

I don't think they are very interested  in servicing our needs.  

 

I would suggest sending the MEL back and getting a refund and spend the money on something that works.

 

Or you could even have a crack at making your own , it'll be quicker than waiting for ellitte.

 

Attach  (several ?) linear potentiometers, and some switches/buttons to

I own the Elite King Air TQ and installed the FSX drivers using the Estonia Migration Utility. The TQ works flawlessly. I spoke to Brian on the phone about this temporary solution and he was completely OK with it. I found their support to be quite good by the way.

 

Cheers,
