No Rudder Control With Xbox Controller

Recommended Posts

Howdy...I am using XP 11.26 on a powerful

gaming computer running under Windows 10...

My ultimate problem is that nearly all prop

planes ver left on takeoff...I understand why that

happens...

I need to use more rudder...my Xbox controller does

fine, but I cannot get any rudder movement on my planes...

I have set the controller to use separate buttons/levers

to control the rudder...in XP setup, the levers work on 

the setup page...the blue lines move back and forth...

but when I fly, the rudder on the plane hardly moves,

if at all...thus no rudder control to use on takeoff...

I also fly with P3D4.4 with the Xbox controller with

no problems and great rudder control...

Any help on this issue would be appreciated......

Thanks, John H.

This appears to be a workable solution:

Plane 11 Has an “Auto” Rudder Function!

 

Why is this important?:...if you, like me, have trouble getting prop planes to take off straight down the runway instead of veering left, then this might help… 

How does it work?:…simply turn off all rudder control on your controller…might not also hurt to turn off any keyboard rudder setting…if you do this, XP will attempt to control the rudder for you…It’s not perfect, but it helps a bunch on the takeoff issue…the downside is you forfeit manual rudder control…not a big loss for me as I never could get any effective rudder control with my controller anyway… 

Source  of Information:…XP technical support 12/16
