Issues with Derek Speare Designs (DSD) FLT1

Recommended Posts

Hi, all,

 

Just wondering if anyone out there has tried the DSD FLT1 button box with either P3D or X-Plane?  I just received mine, but I'm having issues with both the rotary encoders and the on/off switches - they're both sending very intermittent button pulses; even in Windows Game Controller properties, where you can see each button press, they're very intermittent.  I've tried a couple of different USB ports, both directly on the PC (no hub) and a second computer with the same results.

 

Thanks,

Phil

Just a followup to my post; DSD sent me a testing utility that showed that all of the outputs are working so it looks like neither P3D nor X-Plane poll fast enough to catch the short button press signals.  I've installed FSUIPC in P3D and set the button polling to 10 ms and this seems to help a bit but still doesn't catch all of the button presses.

 

I looked into writing my own handler that would maybe capture the button presses and then send the appropriate event via SimConnect; I can capture all of the button presses but can only get a few of the controls to accept events.  At least I know it's not an issue with the hardware itself.

 

Cheers,

Phil
