USING CH PRODUCTS YOKE LEVERS

Recommended Posts

I use the complete suite of CH Products controllers: Yoke, Throttle Quadrant, and Pedals. The yoke has three levers on top for Throttle, Mixture, and Prop controls. Since I use the CH Products Throttle Quadrant for Throttle, Mixture and Prop controls, I do not use the levers on top of the Yoke. I am wondering if I could somehow use them for Landing Gear, Flaps, and Speed Brakes. Since they are a movable axis, I can't figure out how to do this. There are no detents to assign. Has anyone ever done this?

Thanks

There is an axis in MSFS you can use for flaps and speedbrakes. When I was still using the CH Yoke I used one of the levers for trim.
if you want to use it as a gear lever you'll have to use something like Axis and Ohs, FSUIPC or Spad.Next to assign part of the range to the Gear Up or Down command.

One use for one lever is analogue braking. You assign both left brake axis and right brake axis onto one single lever. You now have proportional breaking on both wheels.

Another is for a true zoom (what the mouse wheel normally does). I don't like using the mouse wheel to zoom, I want the mouse wheel to only to interact with the cockpit doodads and not be zooming when I don't want. The mouse wheel is an axis. So you can use the "Search By Input" window to find the name of that command on the wheel by default and assign it to a lever instead. And remove it from the mouse wheel.

Obviously you could use the levers to navigate in drone mode. Move straight: up down right left forward backward takes 3 levers. To revolve/pan: up down right left with the drone takes 2 more levers.

Use one the switches on the CH throttle unit for gear UP/DWN. I also use one for Flap increment DWN and increment UP. You can use others for cowl flaps and rudder trim etc. Works a treat.
