Problems with Thrustmaster HOTAS X Joystick/Throttle

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

So I'm making the migration from FSX to P3Dv4 this weekend, and I'm running into issues with my joystick and throttle (Thrustmaster HOTAS X). I'm getting control surfaces to respond but the throttle and rudder axis (twisting the joystick) are not responding at all. Even when I go into the control assignments and move the throttle or twist the stick to try and assign them as commands P3D will not recognize them. Anyone run into this problem before and know how to solve?

Thanks!

I don't have P3D, but I do have a HOTAS X. So, to clarify the joystick shows as calibrated OK from the Thrustmaster control panel?

Is there some kind of advanced controls option within P3D?

Have you tried locking the twist, setting the joystick to 4 axis mode, and using the rocker switch on the throttle for rudder just to see if that makes a difference?

It is reading as calibrated.

I ended up reinstalling the drivers, FSUIPC, and then rebooting everything and that worked. Guess it was just a driver issue.

Thanks!

I have no problems assigning and calibrating my Warthog HOTAS directly in P3D.  The only thing the Thrustmaster GUI is useful for is turning off the lights, it is not compatible with P3Dv3 and later.  I only use FSUIPC to translate buttons and switches into keycommands for use in the PMDG custom keycommand feature.

I'm having trouble with my Thrustmaster T-Flight Hotas X. P3Dv4 says it sees it but it doesn't want to calibrate it. Every time I try to set a new assignment for the throttle or yoke nothing happens. PLease help

A little more information please. How what happens when you select either the throttle or the joystick in the top drop down box, select the axis screen,  then click on calibrate?
