X 55 Throttle problem

Well you will also need a Bible, a rabbits foot (for luck) and 40 hours of 'school' to set this $200 jobbie. FSUIPC can't 'hurt' but it won't 'fix' it (it's a complicated piece of hardware). For starters it will use 2 POWERED USB ports (get a powered HUB). Then you have to read up on how to configure the keys. Sound simple? It's not. You will get exhausted in no time. But if you prevail (give you a month) you MIGHT like your HOTAS. Or you might just buy a twist stick and be done with it. You can sacrifice only so many brain cells for just this one 'task'. You can read a review / how-to at this link:

Seriously? No idea what FSUIPC is? It's probably the best module that has ever been made for all versions of flightsim.




I'm not an addon junky, i've had FSX Gold for 8 years and it's so beautiful straight out the box that the only things I've added in all that time are some planes and a strip of photoscenery.

FSX is like dating a gorgeous but sometimes temperamental woman, so you wouldn't dream of insisting she wears a Wonder Woman outfit or she might slap you round the kisser and storm off..:)

Play with:


Select Engine E+engine number (1-4)


Select All Engines E+1+2+3+4


until you get four engines back. I use X52 and never need FSUIPC, at least not for Saitek.


BTW, I had in the past deleted the E assignment altogether when I remember to do so after a new installation of FSX. Do not care for it.
