Joystick throttle problem.

Post by Bas.T » Sun Dec 15, 2013 7:10 pm

Hello YS Flight community!

I got a small problem with my joystick throttle
Ys flight only recognizes 3 positions of the joystick:0%, idle(about 25%) and 100%.
This makes it really anoying to use the throttle on my joystick.
Does someone know a solution for this?
I own the Thrustmaster T flight Hotas x

I have this stick, how ever I am not an expert. Have you tried going through the calibration?
How old is the stick?
Are you using it as a whole or have you separated it into two parts?
What operating system are you using?
Have you tried updating/re-installing the drivers?

What axis is the throttle associated with? Ys only has 3 axis assignments to it.X,Y,Z.Is your throttle considered a part of the joystick or doe's it have its own assignments? It should be listed something like joy1axis1 where axis 1 is x axis.

The throttle is assigned to Axis 3, I got the joystick in 1 piece..
Reinstalling drivers now to see if it makes a change.

Edit:
installed the drivers, they did not make a change.

Have you tried calibration of the stick?

I have this too, I think I know what you mean - the halfway on the throttle is actually 25% on YS.

Does anyone know a fix?
Its not calibration/driver related

I think it may be a dead zone adjustment problem.I have the same calibration problems with my throttle quadrant so I created my own scale to agree with the Ys calibrations.I love duct tape. ;)
