Hi, i'm new here and i may be searching in the wrong place, i recently purchased a used CH products USB flight sim yoke with hopes to use it with Microsoft flight simulator X for a bit more realistic practice for my airwork. I set it up with flight sim and all controls work perfectly except for elevator pitch, the yoke doesn't recognized any pitching motion when i pull up or push down on the control column. I went on CH products website and downloaded their calibration software but there too, it doesn't recognize any movement about the pitching axis, its like i'm not doing anything, if anyone is familiar with this product any help is appreciated thanks

I have moved you into the appropriate forum for your question.  I hope you didn't spend too much on this "used" product.  Sounds like a possible broken wire or bad variable resistor/sensor for the elevator movement since you say even the CH Products calibration software doesn't detect the movement either.

I have an Eclipse yoke and I agree with charliearon.  If the calibration software and also Windows' game controller setup can't detect you pushing and pulling the yoke, it's broken.  Get a refund or exchange immediately.

Open the Yoke and check the connecting end tabs. I had one loose on mine.  Bind the end tab a bit to have more pressure on the connector.
