  1. The problem is that I don't get full authority of the left (or right - if I reverse the control axis) aileron. On the ground, I perform a pre-flight control check using external views and everything looks good. Once airborne, the control stick animation moves opposite what the my aileron axis input is, and I have limited roll authority. I can input full aileron in one direction, but in the other direction it initially moves and then 'snaps' back. This is confirmed using external views. This repeats across different aircraft, and with both my VKB Gladiator stick and Honeycomb Alpha Yoke. I have unplugged all controllers except the one I want to use for pitch and roll, and I have set up my control axes multiple times, using both all default values and also tweaking sensitivity. Hoping someone can help me figure this out.
  2. I'd probably delete 4.5 from my computer if it weren't for their Cessna 310 and Beaver. Just fantastic aircraft.
  3. I was checking out the visuals around Aspen and Eagle, CO earlier today and on takeoff I saw my altitude shoot up to 32,000 feet followed by a cabin altitude warning. Now, whenever I reload the sim or any aircraft, at any location - the field elevation is 18,000 or higher. I am stumped.
  4. So I saw a post about editing the joystick preferences file but nowhere else do I see options for changing the null zone settings.
  5. Great tip. Marginally improved by using compressed air in the channels, then taking the back cover off and spraying contact cleaner down where the pots are located. Am I going to have to disassemble the entire thing to get it back to 100% or should I just keep soaking the pot areas? https://imgur.com/a/aOFif2S
  6. Very slight but constant; it's significant enough that I cannot use autothrottles. I've re-calibrated several times; new Xplane user so not the most familiar with the interface. I do not have this issue in P3D.
  7. I’ve been running a 1600x for 3 years, and am looking for a drop in replacement. MOBO is the MSI Gaming Pro Carbon which as I understand it only supports up to Gen 2. Suggestions are appreciated.
  8. I am noticing that in some cases an assignment will work initially but after rebooting the sim and LINDA they no longer function. Looking at the config file for the particular aircraft, the assignments are still there. What can be done to troubleshoot, besides the steps you recommend in your sticky post?
  9. "extra utility Buttons.Fly" I am not sure what you are referring to? I did edit the .lua file as a text file and save back to .lua. Things are working better now; thank you.
  10. Makes more sense now. But it is not working? Only the shifted function (fast heading) works, despite pressing the button. https://imgur.com/IFoYcaj https://imgur.com/G41RUgs
  11. I've read several posts but I'm just not getting the idea. I'm flying the Maddog with the Honeycomb yoke; I have one of the left yoke switches set up for 'AP hdg decfast' and 'AP HDG incr fast'. What I would like to do is use another yoke button as a shift, so that the same left yoke switch will then perform 'AP hdg dec' and 'AP hdg incr'. I can't make it work... screenshots attached and help is appreciated. https://imgur.com/a/xqZKQKt https://imgur.com/vYVfMzGhttps://imgur.com/vYVfMzG
  12. I hope there is something in a setting that will fix this, so far not an issue with the JustFlight Arrow. Please see video via the link. https://imgur.com/a/7paTSrH
  13. So it is working - somewhat. Thanks for the assistance. Only the 'C' and 'V' buttons work - non of the others on the gauge. I have to use the window unit?
  14. OK, so here are the modifications to the RealityXP GSN.ini: [GNS] ; comma separated list of gauges gauges = GNS_530_1, GNS_530_2 [GNS_430_2] ; comma separated list of render targets. drawto = WINDOW, PANELS, Garmin_530_screen ; is the master device if true. REST OF THIS SECTION NOT SHOWN FOR BREVITY. [GNS_530_1.Garmin_530_screen] visible = true nobezel = true frame.type = PANEL3D ; display position and dimension (left,top,width,height) frame.rect = 430,74,521,387 No luck...
  15. This is the panel preview image: https://imgur.com/a/YsFDUt5 I don't know if I am supposed to map the RealityXP intro screen or the default GNS530 screen.
  16. I need to learn to make sure what I buy will work with what I have 😞
  17. I got the Arrow to work - someone already posted a mod. I will have to reach out for the 310; I can't get it to work. This is my fault, for assuming the aircraft would take the older navigator.
  18. I bought the GNS 530W without realizing that my 310 did not support it. I am trying to mod the panel to make it work, and as I typically fly P3D not Xplane... I'm not having any luck. I followed the tutorial but obviously didn't do something correct; the panel displayed is still the default Xplane 530. I could use some help!
  19. I just checked Milviz’s site. Only supports the GTN. I screwed up with this purchase. Is there any chance I could swap into a GNS530 license for P3D?
  20. It’s not doing anything but loading the pop up window, which works fine. The plugin menu is there with all the options. Could it be neither aircraft has a compatible configuration file? I’m much more well versed with P3D than XPlane.
