I need some help with this one... I decided to treat myself to a fun Christmas present and buy the CH Products Flight Sim Yoke USB and Pro Pedals USB. I am running WinXP on a PIII 600 with 512MB Ram and a TNT 2 32MB. I know this system isn't the most powerful, but FS2k2 runs pretty well even with most sliders maxed. (Impressive in my book) I installed the CH Products New Controller software and also went into FS2k2 and calibrate the controlers assigning the correct actions etc. So on to the problems:
1. The Mixture control does not work. I set it up and it seemed to work correctly in the calibration menu, but in FS nothing happened.
2. The Prop control has limited range. i.e. Min on controller = 30% in FS and Max = 75%
3. The sensitivity of the yoke motions are crazy! Landing the C182 in calm conditions felt like landing in a full Gale! The plane was jumping all around with a minute movement of the yoke. (I did notice that the forward yoke motion when calibrating was way off)
4. The brakes won't hold me when I am doing a runup...I just start rolling towards the runway.
One thing...I have not installed FSUIPC yet... would this matter?
Are there any other suggestions?
Has anyone else had these issues?
