Running Microsoft FSX on an XP pro machine with Saitek Flight Yoke System. Lately the view switches from cockpit to spot view un-commanded. Got a Gremlin in here somewhere.

    We can try that procedure:
    "The fix is for Saitek yoke which in defective stock gives some randomphantom button problem, but if we add in the FSUIPC.ini file theEliminateTransients=Yes and the pollinterval=50 this solve the problem."

The most likely problem here is that you have multiple assignments for the view change command set to multiple controllers hooked up to the system. They are conflicting with each other causing random view changes.

Firstly, go into Windows Control Panel and to Game Controllers. Remove any controllers listed in that box that are not currently connected or being used in your flight simulator.

Next, go into FSX, into the control assignments section...
Go through each controller in the drop down box (in the button/keys tab) and ensure only one controller has the assignment for view changes assigned.

Hi Alf,
This sounds like a deadzone setting not allowing the throttle axis to go full.
There are 2 places in which the deadzones can be set:
In FSX: Settings> Controls> Calibration, there select your Yoke and then set the NULL to the left, which is 0.
Or in windows in Input Devices (Win Xp - is in Control Panel, Vista or Win7 go to Games Explorer>Tools>Input Devices).
In Input Devices->Select the Yoke and click Properties, then go to the Deadzones Tab and set the deadzones for the Throttle. Mixture and Prop to 0.
Hope it helps...

Try to get the latest drivers from www.saitek.com

Try it on another computer and if it does the same there too you might want to consider that it can be faulty...and you might want to request a replacement for it.

Hope it helps..

On saitek yoke system it wont work on fsx *flight simulator x* if you can help thanks !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


Ensure you have installed the drivers for it. If you don't have them, go to Saitek web site, download and install the correct one's for your operating system. Also ensure that the yoke is plugged into the USB port on the rear of the PC as these USB sockets give the most power. Additionally, you have to set the yoke up in FSX\Settings so it knows what to do with it with regard to calibrating it and assigning what buttons do what.

Hi Chris

Ensure that you have the usb lead from the yoke plugged into the rear of the PC as these give the most current. Ensure the drivers for the yoke are installed properly and they are the latest for your operating system. If this still does not work, then the yoke is faulty. Good luck!

SPOT VIEW FIXED


You need to assign what view you want to the cooley hat on your controller in FSX\Settings. Rethe Zoom, press the backspace key to reset it, then use the + and - keys to zoom in and out.
