  1. Hi all, Wondering if someone might be able to help because I am getting no response on the Saitek/Logitech website at the moment. I have had a Saitek throttle quadrant for a few months now and it has worked perfectly well for me. I thought I would up my game for twins and get the Pro Flight Yoke so I had the two quadrants and a new yoke to replace joystick. When I installed the new yoke it recognised it in the driver installation software but then when I plugged in my old quadrant into the hub on the yoke it caused the old quadrant to cycle connect/disconnect with the green light going off and the windows USB Connect/Disconnect chimes sounding. I tried playing with different USB ports to no avail so thought I would reinstall. Now I can't even get the yoke to light up unless I leave it plugged in and reboot, in which case as their are no drivers installed the display clock shows zeros and it isn't functional. If I start the driver installation process when, I get to the point where I have to plug in the yoke, it is not recognised and the 'next' button is greyed out. Windows however tried install a generic USB hub but that never seems to complete. So if I then try and reinstall my trusty old Yoke it won't be recognised either so that is now out of service. I plug it in when prompted and the driver software won't recognise it and the thing keeps cycling disconnect/connect. I have deleted drivers, deleted the registry entries, tried different USB ports, tried straight into PC and also into my powered USB hub. Nothing at all seems to work anymore. Does anyone have any ideas? All my other non Saitek USB devices are working just fine! Many thanks for taking the time to read this!
  2. I bought my Saitek Pro Throttle plus extra Throttle Quadrant in October 2008. It's behaved well over the years but I now have two axes displaying signs of dirty potentiometers with spiking during part of the travel. I have watched a couple of videos on YouTube and whilst it's fiddly it does appear to be fairly straightforward to clean them with alcohol. Given its popularity I'm guessing many of you may gave cleaned yours. How did you find it and does it solve the problem long term? Apparently Saitek deliberately use low grade potentiometers made exclusively for them so finding a higher quality alternative is impossible. They want you to buy a new throttle all because something costing a few pence is dirty.
  3. Dear simmers, I have played a lot with the PMDG MD11 and its quite fun to fly ( even if its hard to :P ). Now I want to take it to a next level and make something from the MD11 cockpit. I want to build a Throttle Quandrant to add more realism to the flight. I have searched and searched and came up empty. I have really found nothing related to the dimensions or structure of which the MD11 throttle quandrant is built of. Im doing this as a summer project with a friend of mine who is going to build the throttle quandrant of a Boeing 737. Im hoping you guys could help me in any way possible because the summer is getting closer :P Hope to hear you soon Any help is welcome Greetings FOwout
  4. (This is posted in multiple FlightSim forums) I searched everywhere and could not find any explanation on how to get the Saitek throttle quad to actually move the prop levers into feather detent section like l could in FSX driving the old Aeroworx B200. But I figured it out and thought I'd share. First, and unfortunately, you'll have to buy a key for FSUIPC7 from SimMarket for 25 euro to make it work. 1. Clear any buttons assigned to the Prop lever detent buttons. (full down past the detent is detected as a button press) You can keep the axis you assigned thru MSFS just clear the detent if it was assigned. 2. open FSUIPC while the King Air is parked ready to start on the tarmac. 3. Go to "Assignments" Menu tab in FSUIPC and select 'Buttons & Switches' 4. push down on the prop 1 lever to send a button press, it will pop up as Joy #B Btn #7 or something like that. 5. to the right of that, check the box 'Select for FS control' 6. below that click the dropdown menu under "Control sent when button pressed' and choose 'Prop Pitch 1 Decr' 7. Check the box below this 'Control to repeat while held' 8. then in the next dropdown menu below that 'Control sent when button released' choose 'Prop Pitch 1 Hi Ex1' This will put the lever back to bottom axis position when you release (or move back to the detent) 9. When you click 'OK' it will send this to MSFS and you can test it by watching the lever move into the Feather zone. 10. Repeat for the Prop 2 lever, selecting 'Prop Pitch 2 xxx' instead of course. That's it. This also works for Ceranado's Seneca V PA34T too. (but careful, it will stall out the engine ) Sorry, I didn't try any other aircraft or the CH quadrants. And of course I didn't try it with the Honeycomb quadrant because you bought them ALL! For the King Air 350 Throttle Beta (essentially reverse thrust) follow the same procedure as above but for the throttle detents and use 'Throttle 1 Decr' for the button press and 'Throttle 1 cut' for the release.
