HEAVY STICK on approach, CH flight stick, FSX, "Pilatus"

Recommended Posts

Last night doing an approach, trimmed high to reduce speed. My stick got physically heavy? It's not force feedback (2le5 yrs old CH flight stick).

# So what causes this?

I am learning to build external throttle, etc. Can the potentiometers be  charged with resistance.

Dave. CYEL.

Grounded four years. Used FS 2004/FSX-SE to shoot circuits.

Friends helped me cobble together five monitors; 3 view, 1 panel, 1 LNM.

(Not a lot of scenery detail, more function; both of us are growng.) 🙂

My new name is "POGO" issue solved (understood). In the hundreds of times I have recalibrated the stick I never took notice nor evaluated the force.

Reading forums, CH sticks are rated light.

So the heavier plane requires a longer throw on pitch axis than I am used to* so I do experience more pressure do to the software interpretation.

That being said, mods I read about will be made to my back up stick, for testing.

* Even our real-time plane is only 800 lbs wet and I rarely trim it much accept for fuel (two tanks forward/aft)(two engines forward/aft).

Wish I could still fly it 😞
