Honeycomb Bravo Throttle Quadrant

Recommended Posts

Ladies and Gentlemen,

     I was fortunate to get one of the Honeycomb Throttle Quadrant on the 24th of Dec.   However, I am having troubles getting the Axis (Throttle) to be recognized.  It is either full on or full off no transition like a throttle should be.   If anyone has suggestions, I am open to this.   By the way there is very little help (Tutorials or Documentation) to setup.  So I will create a tutorial once I figure it out.   Works perfectly in MSFS 2020...must have been built for that.  However P3Dv5 is still my go to sim.  If you have one and got it working would love to know what you did.

Are you using P3D setup and config only with it?  Or are you using FSUIPC?

I am using the P3D setup it did not work so I have tried FSUIPC.   I am not sure if the Honeycomb configurator is suppose to set the bindings inside the Axis (controls section)?  Totally frustrated!  Do you have the Honeycomb bravo?

Got it very recently, but I have yet to install it.

I also have the Alpha for which the axis are directly managed by P3D, and I am convinced it is the same for the Bravo.

I don't saw anything concerning the axis in the new configurator, as was the case in the "old yokeinput".

No. I am awaiting mine.  Supposed to ship soon.  I will be using it with MSFS and FSX SE when it gets here.  I am a FSUIPC user in FSX SE.

I will keep this thread updated:   I have reformatted and installed Windows 10 (Current), Reloaded P3Dv5.1 HF1.   With nothing loaded it works by configuring from P3D controller configuration Axis.  Why did I have problems?  I believe I had older drivers installed and (Logitech 940) probally did not get them all when I uninstalled.   I also am using the Thrustmaster  TCA Joystick, so I needed to delete duplicate functions.   I have not loaded any of my premium software.  I will do this one at at time.   Will continue to let the community know.

I have received mine and after a learning curve have it working famously.  Did you resolve your issue in this topic?

Yes, I did.  However have not got the top row (5 switch) working.  I need to take the time and leverage Linda.   What are you using.  I am using fsiupc/and p3d controls

I got my Throttle yesterday and unpacked it today.  I am using it with MSFS.  I got everything working for a 172 setup except the light switches.  The default switches did not work did not work. I cleared the lights, fuel pump, and pitot heat and set them in the order they appear on the dash of the 172.  I validated each after setting.   They toggle correctly in control options.  In the cockpit, only a couple of the work.  I double checked them in control options to make sure they were still working and they are set and behaving correctly in Control Options.   Anyone have any ideas?

Everything else works great.  I love having a trim wheel.  Electric trim is nice but old habits are nice too.

I'm trying to load Linda for prepar3dv5 with FSUIPC6.  It keeps telling me it can't find the FSUIPC files.  I waited 14 months for the Bravo.  It seems I might need another 14 to get it configured.  Extremely frustrating.
