P3DV3.1 Not Detecting CH Products

Recommended Posts

Hello pilots, I recently downloaded P3DV3.1 and everything went smooth. When I started to assign my controls, p3d did not recognize neither of my CH controls which are Peddles and Throttle Pro ?  It only recognized my MS flight stick. I do not use CH manager and have not yet downloaded FSUIPC4. Any help is appreciated.

Are you saying that when you go into the Settings/controls they are not in the drop down?

 

Do they show in your system Device Manager? Which Windows? What else do you have plugged in?

 

I use ch yoke, rudders, throttle quadrant along with Saitek X-52 and all are recognized. With P3D running, try removing one from the USB port and connecting it to another.

Hi Vic, Yes the CH products do not show in the settings/controls drop down Box.

 

CH peddles and Pro throttle do show in the device manager and are working properly.

 

Using Windows 10 OS

 

I will try switching ports and see what happens....

That's odd, I too use usb CH Peddles and their throttle quadrant and they work great with v3.1.  I have them plugged into a USB hub, no special drivers or managers, just whatever loads after plugging them in the first time in Windows 10.

 

Shows up in the controls menu just like the other controls.

 

Haven't tried using them through FSUIPC as P3D handles them fine directly.

Hi Solo, my CH products I just found out show up in the settings/controls as "Control Manager ID 001"  and  "Control Manager ID 002".   001 is the Pro Throttle and 002 is the peddles. Is that weird? 

 

I went ahead and calibrated the throttle and peddles...

 

The MS stick works fine..... Peddles work fine..... the throttle works but when I slide the throttle forward all the way for Take Off (using default f-22) all I can get in airspeed is 189 knots and no more at full throttle. Jet throttle will not go full forward.

I had the same problem with the CH pedals ( which I didn't have with version 2.5) , and after a long time of trying to get it to work, I just used FSUIPC to add the pedals to V3.  I don't think I could have ever gotten them to work without FSUIPC. I also found out that the slope function in FSUIPC let me tune the response for the rudder for aircraft like the 737, and get it just like I like it

That is weird Lamar... just checked, my pedals show up as "CH PRO PEDALS USB" under the control setting page in P3D (same as they do in FSXSE).

 

Are you using or have you installed any type of CH programming software or special driver in the past?  I haven't on this system and they just plugged in, showed up and worked.  I did have a weird issue on an older machine where they would occasionally drop out and I'd have to unplug and replug them, but that issue hasn't happened on my newest machine.

 

I unfortunately don't have the throttle quadrant hooked up, currently using my TM Warthog throttles, but they behaved the same when I plug them in... recognized, no special drivers or software, and show up correctly.  I do have to of course set the axes for what I want, but never had the problem you are describing.

 

Makes me think it's some sort of previous driver or manager you might have installed.

 

EDIT: Oddly Bob, I've have the same CH Pedals working hassle free in FSX,FSXSE, P3D v2.5, v3.0, and currently v3.1... simply show up and work.  Weird thing this hobby we have ha

Wish I could shed some light on it - I have CH stuff on my W10 P3D system and my W7 P3D system. Although both systems are set up through FSUIPC, they are also recognized in the system and the P3D drop down.

 

Somehow, something on your system is blocking windows from reading the correct ID of the item.

 

I'd start troubleshooting by unplugging ALL usb devices. Shut down and restart. Plug in the rudder pedals and restart - see if it's picked up. Then add back the TQ and repeat, etc.

 

 

AHA: Control Manager ID - that is assigned by the CH control manager. Somehow you have an old profile being loaded. Run CH manager and disable all profiles.

Well actually this hiccup in trying to get it working in 3.1 , found me using FSUIPC instead, and as I mentioned in the post above, the result is much better calibration of the pedal action due to the slope function in FSUIPC that doesn't exist in P3D. Now the rudder action in the 737 is much more realistic.

Thanks for all that has replied. I may end up using FSUIPC but first I will try suggestions from Vic and Bob and do some troubleshooting, I will report back with my results.  Thanks so much for your help and yes Solo it can be a weird hobby sometimes.

I only use FSUIPC but Lamar's problem starts with something (ch manager?) blocking the system from seeing them. I doubt that fsuipc will see them either. Hope I'm wrong. Easy way to find out - start fsuipc and try to read the rudder input - either will show data or not.
 
Once you get FSUIPC to read the data - I heartily recommend you program ALL your devices through FSUIPC. It will take a little time the first time you try it but after that, adding or changing settings is a piece of cake. Here is a good tutorial on setting up FSUIPC

Go to CH web site and load their program for direct calibration and control/assignments. It deals directly with the Windows code that interfaces the hardware to the PC.

I use the pedals and CH yoke and I have no problem, you may need the controlled chispset then updated your motherboard is who takes or not USB

Thanks Dick, tried calibrating with CH control manager and sim still did not recognize the names of the controls, only the MS flight stick is recognized by name. Going to try my CH yoke next and see what happens. Not giving up !

Thanks Padolamap, I will try this since my MB has not been updated since I had my PC.

For all those who replied and helped with my CH controls issue of not being recognized in P3Dv3.1,  I found the issue.  All I did was uninstall the CH control manager, unplug all my CH controls, rebooted my system and then plug in all CH controls and fired up P3D and all controls were detected in the control settings page.  Thank you all.

Woohoo, that's awesome! By the way, thanks for posting what you did to fix the issue. A lot of people either never reply again once they fix what their problem was, or just reply with a "it's fixed now" reply. In the future, if anyone else runs into this they'll see what you did and can give that a try :)

Dear hychewright,

 

Thank You for your post to fix the CH products yoke and pedals not being detected in P3D ver.3.2. Your fix worked perfect with no problems at all. I uninstalled the CH manager software, unplugged the yoke and pedals, rebooted my PC, reinstalled the yoke and pedals and loaded P3D. The P3D Options > Settings > Controls identified and labeled the CH flight yoke and pro pedals correctly. The yoke and pedals functions all work correctly with no problems.

 

The only function that needs to be re-assigned is the elevator trim p and trim down for buttons  12 and 11 on the yoke. Could you please provide instructions how to assign the elevator trim up and down functions on the CH yoke to work correctly? The CH yoke and pedals are identified  in P3D ver. 3.2 as "CH FLIGHT SIM YOKE USB"   and "CH PRO PEDLAS USB".

 

Thank You again. I have spent many days trying to find a fix. Your fix should be posted on  the P3D forum and CH Products forum.

 

Sincerely and Thank you,

 

paulwayne
