SOLVED Problem: Joystick extremely sensitive

Recommended Posts

Hello!

I just want to share a solution for a problem I had from time to time.
My Logitech joystick was wayyyy too sensitive, if you moved the stick a little to any direction, the aircraft moved very fast into that direction.
It didn't matter what ACFT I was flying, happend in the PMDG as well as in the default FSX C172.
Even with sensitivity settings turned to lowest and neutral settings turned to the highest possible, that kind of problem appeard again and again.
But I was curious why it happend always when flying the C172 but only sporadically using the PMDG.


In fact I had this problem everytime I didn't do a flight control check prior the flight.
SOLUTION: ALWAYS do a preflight check of your flightcontrols, as in real life.

Like this: https://youtu.be/vMY0MmJQSeM?t=1m37s


This explains why I always had this problem on the C172 - because i flew VFR without checklist - therefore I skipped to check the flight controls.


Happy flying!


Best regards, Reinhard
