Logitech G940 Throttle issue


Recommended Posts

Hi. I'm hoping that someone may be able to help me with the following issue.

I have had the G940 for a few years now and with FSX on a win7 pc, everything was fine. It was then retired for about 18 months due to work commitments but now i have time to get back into simming. I have since upgraded to win10, then 6 months later purchasing FSX-SE. I've put in the win10 drivers for the G940. Calibrated and ensured all buttons and axis work. Then fired up FSX-SE and gone through all the motions with regards to setting up buttons for commands. This is where it gets silly. I go to control axis and set up the rudder/toe brakes, joystick sensitivity and deadzones with no issues. My problem is this, as soon as i go to select the throttle axis and move the throttle to register, it sounds like it is disconnecting/reconnecting a USB device. After that i have major scrolling issues with whatever i have on screen. e.g. If i go to a website, the screen scrolls all the way to the bottom, if i try to access the top shortcut on my desktop, it will start the last/lower shortcut i have on screen. When i disconnect the G940 from my PC, i can scroll or access websites with no problem, until of course i need to type something in a searchbar and the number 3 fills it to infinity. Number lock is off and it still happens. There are no issues with my keyboard. The only way to then stop this is to restart my PC. I have done this quite a few times in order to try,try again. I am now at my wits end as to what it might be, so i am asking for anyones help and advice.


Many thanks in advance.

That stick works good with Xplane and P3D but with FS it does not. Either too sensitive or not sensitive enough. The pedals are almost useless I heard. The pitch trim is bogus. Windows sees them as 'unrelated' devices to where it won't even list them correctly in calibration. Thinking of saving a 'profile' to FSX? Good luck with that bad idea.


But if you get the drivers from manuf site, and get the power adopter (instead of it being plugged in to USB port for power) you might eventually tweak the hell out of it to where it will surrender and decide to work. Maybe. Sorry but that is the reputation this $199 set up has earned. I feel your pain, though. Oh, myself I have a MS Sidewinder Precision Pro 2 (non FF) twist grip joystick and don't need paddles or a yoke. Plug & Play too. Choices choices.

I hear you ref the sensitivity side of things and yes for the price I paid back when it came out, I was gob smacked at the overall performance, but to that end I got it working before the win10 upgrade.


update on scenario. Got the throttle to respond. By pure accident I switched the mode button to mode 2, chose a different usb port and now it works. Just got to get the settings right (which may be a while) and i'll be good to go. For some reason in mode 1 the pc doesn't recognise it at all and as for mode 3, I haven't a clue what it does there. Still, getting there which is the main thing.


Many thanks.

I have had the G940 for a few years now..


Try to borrow a different brand of stick from a pal to see if that works. If it does, you'll know the G940 has given up the ghost and can dump it and buy a new stick.

Sticks DO wear out or break as I recently found out when my 1-year-old Thrustmaster T-Flight X throttle slider wouldn't work. i unscrewed the base plate and saw a thin wire was dangling in midair so I reconnected it and it works again, but of course not all stick problems might be as easy to fix as that.
