Milviz Beaver and CH Throttle quadrant issues

Recommended Posts

This one has me stumped so far and is really strange.  For some strange reason my prop pitch lever on my CH throttle quadrant will not work with the Milviz Beaver.  It works in every other aircraft and the throttle and mixture work just fine in the Beaver.  I checked fsuipc and there is a signal from the prop pitch lever when I look at the calibration tab but the animated lever in the Beaver does not respond at all.   I'm reaching because it seems like this is a first as I can't find any answers in any search I do.

It wont work like this. Its noted in the forums over at Milviz

You need to set a profile in FSUIPC for the beaver and assign the prop lever to the main prop pitch command, not the separate 1,2,3,4 etc.

Had the same issue myself.

Double checked - I have mine set to PropPitch1 - works just fine.

Now confused.  FSUIPC is not seeing this lever as a single prop pitch lever because I have is assigned in the sim as 1 of 2.  I don't want to reassign this in the sim then it will be set that way for all aircraft.  When I am in axis assignments tab in fsuipc, the lever does not even register there on that tab.  What am I missing?  Thank you all for your patience.

OK got fsuipc to recognize the tq.  Not sure what step resolved that but I used fsuipc to set all assignments for the tq and made a profile specific setting for the beaver using just prop pitch.  Still no joy.  Man!

I thought said in first post that it was registering in fsuicp?

Do you have the latest 5.121a version?

Just in the calibration tab.  I have done a series of things to get it to register in the assignments tab also now and assigned the lever to prop pitch set under a profile I created for the beaver but it still isn't working.

YAHOO! got it.  I had to send the profile specific prop pitch command to calibration NOT to the sim.  Thank you all.  :-)

I had the same Problem. Milviz solved the Problem with it`s latest Beaver update, so no workaround is needed anymore:-)
