  1. Hi All, I am loving the new SIM it's not perfect I am sure it will be in time. I am using a joystick and throttle just a budget on, worked fine in FSX and FS9 but in MS2020 having spent allot of time adjusting sensitivity and trying to get it working correctly it is still really sensitive. What are your recommendations based in what your using at the moment please for the best user experience. Thank you very much and happy flying. Daz
  2. Hi guys, Some time ago I have bought the Saitek Proflight Yoke in combination with the throttle quadrant. I appreciate the product a lot. Is there a way to get additional quadrant lever heads, so I can create my preferred configuration of throttle, flaps, mixture and prop pitch? I mainly fly the Boeing 737, and I would like to have two separate power levers. With one extra black (throttle) knob, I can make two power levers. I have contacted Saitek about this, but there are no available knobs as spare part. Did anyone else try to get an extra knob?
  3. Hi guys, as title says. Which is your technique? I have no problem when try to land manually after passed 1000' AGL, disconnect A/P and A/T and land safely enough. But if I want to practice manually all the approach from IAF to FAF I have a lot of difficulties to keep the aircraft on correct glide path. I try to maintain the G/S adjusting the throttle and pitch manually, but most of the times I am to high on final and with an incorrect pitch configuration. The aircrat upon on final regains altitude and I have to make a go-around. How do you perform your manual landing with this great aircraft? Thanks in advance, Ric
  4. This problem has really been bothering me for a long time. I have tried basically everything in the book to solve it. When I switch tasks in flight, say to check vpilot or go to chrome, my controller resets and causes fsx not to read it anymore. I tried porting it through FSUIPC and the same problem occured. I've gone through device manager(making sure it doesn't cut off for power saving), and did the same thing in control panel. I have run fsx in compatability mode, still no luck. When I check fsuipc anything to do with the yoke disappears. I've updated the drivers on saitek, and the problem is still there. I'm pretty sure it has something to do with vas because whenever I go into a high end scenery area or I use a heavy payware aircraft it tends to happen more often. It's literally making it impossible to fly because I can't seem to go through a flight without this problem occuring. Sometimes I don't even need to do a task switch to get this to trigger, the yoke itself will just blip on and off and fsx will stop reading the yoke. This also happens with almost all my other joysticks as well. The only way I know about fixing it is by switching between fullscreen and windowed mode a ton of times, but that only works to a point. I am completely at a loss of what to do next. I've heard its a common problem with windows 8, but I still have no idea how to solve it.
  5. As PMDG is currently working on the 747-8, I thought that this would be the perfect time to make a suggestion. It seems that for quite a while there has been an ongoing problem with the use of FSUIPC to assign throttle inputs to hardware axes. I was hoping that PMDG and Peter would eventually find a solution but it doesn't look like it will happen. The only thing that has prevented me from moving all throttles assignments off of FSUIPC is that I am hooked on flying your 747 and I need the ability that FSUIPC gives me to assign multiple throttle inputs to a single axis (eg., 1>1+2 & 2>3+4). It would be great if PMDG could add optional menu item that would do this internally. What do you think?
  6. Maybe this can save someone some pain in the future. Or, at least, give someone a good laugh at my expense. When I installed P3D4 and had no add-on aircraft and no FSUIPC5 I defined all of the controls from the P3D Controls menu, obviously. When I installed the 777 and FSUIPC5 I removed all of the P3D4 control definitions, but forgot the fuel control switches. That resulted in a journey covering about four hours over two days trying to figure out why the engines sometimes weren't responding to the throttles. I could start the engines normally but, when I advanced the throttles, they moved on the screen and the throttle position indication moved on the EICAS, but the engines wouldn't spool up. I also saw that the engine bleed air valves weren't opening. When I loaded the Default panel, sometimes everything worked fine but usually the engines shut off after initialization with ENG FAIL L and ENG FAIL R displayed. To isolate the problem I disabled FSUIPC and defined the throttles in P3D4 again. The engines worked correctly. I then re-enabled FSUIPC5 but only enabled the axis controls. The engines still worked. I added the button section and the engines didn't work. So I began adding the button definitions to FSUIPC one set at a time until I found that the fuel controls (EVT_CONTROL_STAND_ENG1_START_LEVER 70152 & EVT_CONTROL_STAND_ENG2_START_LEVER 70153) caused the odd behavior. At that point dawn broke over the rocks and I realized that the fuel controls in P3D4 were still active (I'm not at my sim PC and I don't remember the exact control name). I deleted the P3D4 definitions and Bob's your uncle (or voila) (or firm palm slap to the forehead) the engines worked properly. On the plus side, I spent a lot of time watching the Air synoptic screen during engine startup, and it was interesting and informative to see the isolation valves opening and closing to route the APU bleed air to the engine start valve, and then switching the flow for the other engine start, finally opening the engine bleeds after APU shutdown. I'm also glad that I didn't open a ticket for this.
  7. Hi all. I know i am new to these forums, but i need help with my T. Flight Stick X. I've had this problem a long time ago but it hasn't been fixed since i didnt use the stick anymore. So When i want to calibrate my Stick, i see that the throttle is all spazzing out. However, when i pull the stick up (for ailerons etc.) It stops spazzing out and reduces. When i push the stick forward it increases. I've tried to reset it multiple times and calibrate it but no luck, the same problem occurs. Please help! Floris
  8. Hi, Captains! I want to introduce the modification of Saitek throttle. It is fully working B737 throttle based on Saitek. We add forth axis for speed break. All buttons are operational - TOGA swithes, A/T disengage and reversers. The flaps with mechanism and nothes position sectors. Can be used with B737, B757 or B777. The information about modification can be found here Or, here the link to the video.
  9. I'm using a Hotas Warthog throttle. After re-installing my 737 NGX for P3D in P3D v3.1, my throttle starts reverse thrust when pushing the lever forward. Pushing further will solve the problem, but the throttle-handles show strange behaviour in my VC as well, no smooth movement. I do not have this problem with the PMDG 777 or any other standard aircraft. Calibrating the throttle didn't solve the problem. I have a registered version of FSUIPC as well. Should I delete the trhrottle-assigment from within the control-function of P3D? Or should I delete it from FSUIPC? Or should I try re-installing the plane all over? I'm using Windows 10 64 bits
  10. Hi, After a 2 year break from FSX, 5/6 months ago I decided to get back in again. I purchased FSX:SE, but soon found that my Saitek Cyborg X was well and truly broken (Constant spiking of nearly every axis). I was somewhat unimpressed with how my Saitek product lasted, and as an avid racing fan and owning the Logitech G27 as well as various other Logitech products, and with their reputation for quality I brought the Extreme 3D Pro, to tie me over. Whilst I am incredibly impressed by the Logitech - the only thing I dislike is the little throttle, I feel as though this is not realistic, and I struggle to get a full grasp of what my aircraft is doing. I mainly fly the PMDG NGX and the A2A C172, both of which are amazing aircraft, and they both use a yoke. So I'd like to know what is the best controller I can get ? I am currently learning to be a private pilot, so realism is key, but what is the best? My budget isn't huge, but I'm willing to pay for quality. I see saitek are the front runners, but with my previous experiences I'm not overly confident. I look forward to your help! Kind Regards George Hunt
  11. Hi All, I encounter a very strange problem in FSX (SP2): The throttle "all of a sudden" has a minimum around 40%N1. Even after a fresh start of the engines each one goes up to approx. 40%N1, and it's not possible to set it lower (levers or F1 similar). This strange effect shows on every aircraft and on every airport, and it seems to be independent from effects and gauges folders (I temporarily removed them for the test flights) as well as from "fsx.cfg" (I temporarily used an alternative one). Has anyone of you guys ever heard of such an error? I don't have a clue what would make sense to check next... Any advice highly appreciated! Thank you Mick
  12. Hello everyone. Recently, I saw frooglesim's video about a guy in Italy making handles for the saitek pro flight throttle quadrant. His website is here : flightsimpm.com I like the look of them and they look incredible. I live in the US, so shipping and price is extremely expensive as it comes out to be around $140 for the 737 pro levers. I decided to take this project on myself, so I will continually update this thread of my progress. I will probably be able to get the speedbrakes, throttles and flaps done. For the reverse thrust, that may be hard so I do not know if I will be able to do it - if I do I will also update the post on the tutorial/pictures. In the future, I hope all of you find this useful. Currently, I have the throttle handles made by cutting a wooden round stick. For the support things, I will use Manette's throttle design. Thank you, Wesley
  13. Hi, I want to make some switches for flightsim- and then assign them through fsuipc. I don't know what to use for electronics, so if anyone does know, please say what I need! But I thought that since I broke my saitke throttles, but my motherboard for them is still fully functional, I could use that. So I want to know if, if I soldered the switches the Saitek throttle motherboard would it work. Thanks a lot! Harry Karmel
