Thread: CH yoke and pedals

  1. #1

    Default CH yoke and pedals

    I programmed the controls with the MSFS menus, then I went to control panel and ran the calibration. The controls seem to be either operating in reverse or in only in one direction. Airlerons bank sharply to left, no response to the right. Elevator rapidly pitches down, cannot pitch up. Left ruder rapidly turn plane to the left, cannot bring it back with right pedal.
    Thanks for any suggestions. I will buy new yoke and pedals if that's what is needed.

    Here's a very good video guide to setting up the CH Yoke & Pedals: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxY510tvIuA

    I did this and it still bounces up and down, veers to the left and is hard to control.

    Default rudder prolem

    I followed the video and now all controls are working in the right direction and the plane s flyable. A problem remains with the rudder pedals. If you push on a pedal nothing happens for a while, then suddenly the plane will dart to the side and start turning in circles. Pushing the opposite pedal snaps it into circles in the opposite direction. I disabled the brakes and tried changing the sensitivity settings, without much effect. Could the pedals be bad? They are old.

    I've set my pedals to 50% sensitivity with 10% dead zone, which works well with most planes. Some have over-sensitive steering/rudder effectiveness which can be manually edited in some cases, but that's another can of worms!

    Just to confirm, you have set Flight Model to “Modern” and turned off any Assistance?

    Thanks Tim. I used those settings, plus I changed from left rudder/right rudder to rudder axis. Much better.
