CH Eclipse Yoke & Pedals. FSX

Recommended Posts

 My CH Pro pedals suffer from spontaneous, and without control input "twitching" making taxing very difficult. This happens

with the aircraft stationary and often locks in an extreme deflection, left or right. The pedals in the aircraft replicate these

actions. I haven't seen this mentioned in previous posts but it does seem remarkable for me to be a one and only victim.

 

Help please

This sounds like a dirty/worn potentiometer. If you have FSUIPC you can try enabling the 'filter' option on that axis to suppress spikes, although if it locks like you say this probably won't be enough. Maybe a squirt from some switch cleaning spray will help.

Does seem like the potentiometer wiper is leaving the track, but normally locks over on one side. You could try temporarily allocating another axis as rudder, just to see if the odd deflections persist. I think the potentiometers can be ordered via the CH website.

Many thanks both.

 

Both yoke and pedals are four years, plus; old, maybe time for a change!?

 

My regards Anamiv

Have ordered new pedals!

Assume current set should be uninstalled prior assemble new?

 

Thanks
