CH Pro Yoke and Pro Pedals Unsupported???

Recommended Posts

Maybe I'm missing something here, but with all the noted issues with peripherals, it begs the question to Microsoft/Asobo, why did you not use existing control assignments that were already used in FSX and why the extreme limitations of accepted peripherals?

Hoping Asobo does an interview with someone to explain a lot of this. That would go a long way to calming the masses on a number of fronts.

That was then, this is now. MSFS also does not support Sidewinder joysticks, once one of the most widely-used joysticks (nor should it have to). Sure, lots of folks still make great use of their CH products, and the products are great, however, many of them are not even supported by CH any longer.

What do you mean doesn't support?  I've got a sidewinder 2 and it's working great.  I had to map controls of course.

This is going to be the longest thread on CH products ever 🙂

Same disappointment here. One has to manually set the Yoke!

 Yep, that is a first world problem.  It took me about 10mins to setup

Sorry, one more question on input devices.  I have a CH Yoke for aircraft with yokes and a Thrustmaster 16000 for Airbus.  Is there a way to assign a device for each aircraft or do you just assign both and use one at at time with hopefully the other one not interfering?

That's a good question. I have a Thrustmaster HOTAS joystick that I use for the Airbus and a Flight Sim Yoke I use for everything else. I found that stay inputs from the yoke can mess up flying on autopilot with the Airbus when I have both controllers plugged in, so now I swap them depending on which airplane I am flying. You can set up multiple profiles on each controller, so I guess another way to do it is to make a "null" profile with any flight controls/power management inputs bland for each controller and then switch between profiles for each controller depending on which airplane you are flying. (I don't know how to bind a specific controller to a specific airplane, but there may be a way.)

Was able to map things finally, but the sensitivity, accuracy, centering, calibration are all abysmal to non-existent. After days of setting things up and pouring over threads here still have not made a single landing. Not one! 😞

I have a CH Products yoke...hmm.  So you can't even set up assignments in any way?

It is possible to map your CH products peripherals. I did so yesterday, however it takes a bit of effort.  I was able to find a few good tutorials on YouTube that gave me a general understanding of how to map controls from scratch.  You will also need a listing of each of the button/switch designations for the CH Product.  

Hope it helps

Has anyone gotten the yoke to 'center' properly or mapped the yoke center to properties in MSFS 2020 to a yoke property? It is cockeyed and keeps pulling right and never centering again 😞

Also has anyone gotten toe brakes to work as toe brakes AND to disengage the Parking Brake like in FSX?

Donstim,

 

Good news. I activated my yoke and pedals . Your instruction was excellent. You gave very detailed guidance. I was lucky to saw your post,

Many thanks.🙂

My CH yoke had nothing assigned but I have had no problems mapping whatever I need to all the bottons/switches. I even have the old way of panning the camera to the POV hat. Works great!

I had the same problem. CH Yoke, TQ, Rudders and an X55 Stick & Throttle. ALways keep them all plugged in cuz I was using FSUIPC profiles to manage. MSFS had some real issues with three different throttle units. I did what you did, set up null profiles that would have only switch settings and no axis. That resolved the issue. I found that plugging controllers in and out caused more problems than it solved.

Thought I was the only 1 who had to unplug/plug them in every time!  At least it works! 🙂
