Try smaller values like '.5'.

The first thing to try is to change the sensitivity settings of your joystick within FSX. The sensitivity of joystick control axes are independently variable.The other option is to change the calibration of your joystick or yoke. FSUIPC has a section in its manual devoted to calibration. One interesting wrinkle suggested is to place the following line in [CONTROLS] section of your FSX.cfg file:STICK_SENSITIVITY_MODE=0 This prevents FSX affecting control inputs from your joystick and would be followed by re-calibration within FSUIPC to reduce elevator sensitivity. I found this worked for some planes but so far I have been unable to find a setting that works well in all circumstances.Cheers,Noel.

The elevator-effectiveness setting mentioned above works well. A big advantage is that you can adjust the effectiveness for individual aircraft.Best regards, Chris
