Pro flight Yoke

Recommended Posts

Can some one please tell me why I loose control of the aircraft when on a flight, all of sudden the aircraft seems to be jammed or locked going on a different direction than intended. The only way to have control of the aircraft again, is to disconnect the yoke and connected it back so I can put the aircraft  back on the intended coarse.

Knowing what "loose control" means in this case would help diagnose the problem.  It could be a controller malfunction if the aircraft suddenly yaws to one side.  It could be a calibration issue.  It could be a controller sensitivity issue (null zone).  Could you also say what have you done so far to attempt to solve the problem?

A couple of things come to mind:

1. Autopilot taken control

2. Multiple controllers assigned and in conflict

@Joop Arens, check in Device Manager the USB ports do not have energy saving enabled. It’s the Power Management tab. Windows updates can turn it back on again.

This can happen when you have the aircraft on autopilot for a while so the yoke “goes into sleep mode”.

Thank you Ray, Window update happens all the time, so I dont have to do any thing for the update's. I've had a look at Device Manager, but then I don't know how to check for the energy saving.I'ts like you mentioned,  on a auto pilot flight all of sudden the plane want to go to a different direction than intended.

I am Dutch so have Win10 in Dutch, that means that I have to translate English in Dutch to understand what is going on, Hope you know what I mean, I have a hub for USB connectors close by so I can unplug-plug back the Yoke when problem start, but it's a bit anoying.

Joop,

It's worth checking your USB settings. It may solve the problem.

Open Control Panel and choose Device Manager. Scroll down the list of devices until you reach Universal Serial Bus Controllers. Click the + sign to open up the entries.

Choose a USB device and right-click. Choose Properties.

On the Power Management tab ensure "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" does not have the option selected.

Repeat for all USB entries.

See if that solves the problem.

Thank you all for trying to help, I think I have solve the problem? 

First I must say that I got so disgusted yesterday when the Sim started to jump all over like some wild beast, that I decided to delete P3d and  start all over again, I don't know if that was wise. 

It did cost some effort ( for the old cells ) to get all working again.

I have noticed that where you assign the controls that there where many boxes ticked, I removed all except where the left/right brakes are assigned, I hope I make sense here.

Just made a flight from KVLD to KBQK 97 miles with my favourite, The old DC3, no problem at all, I hope P3D continues this way, and if I should need help, will sure call on you again.

Thank you again

Joop
