Question about Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System Flight Simulator

Open Question

Saitek Pro Flight 3 lever throttle quadrant

Everything works fine except that the throttle, prop and mixture lever dont' allow progressive increment, they go from idle to 100% in just one notch making impossible to adjust speed, RPM or mixture as desired. Any thoughts??
Thanks
Dan

SOURCE: Saitek Throttle Quadrant wont go idle and full power

I had a similiar problem and after spending hours researching and looking at forums I figured out the a solution. Plug in the quadrant directly into your computer and then configure it. At that time make your necessary tweaks, i.e. null zones and sensitivity adjustments. After you get it to work properly there, then you should plug it into your yoke and everything should work fine.

Best regards,
Gary

Try uninstall and reinstall software,
if that doesn't solve then try on different pc
still not working repair/replace unit.
Try Microsoft unit with force feedback or you can buy without FFB for less than £10

exit present flight to general menue, minimize so you can access the "start" button then go to programms/saitek and select "lauch the Flight Sim 2004 plugin". All will work well.....exect the trim wheel acts in reverse!!

SOURCE: I have two saitek pro flight throttle quadrants

To get the quadrants to operate four throttles, you need to assign AXIS not buttons, then you will be able to set them up.

Remove the X52 and drivers from your system. You have to install them in a certain order, so look in the documentation for the correct way to install and you will be okay. Good luck

SOURCE: In FSX (Win7 64bit) couldn't get enough speed

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...

Worn out to fast at the top end of the throttle,can it be repaired,have already changed 2 over,replacement part or repair , many thanks js SAITEK THROTTLE QUANTRANT


Hi,
Unfortunately Saitek does not have a repair service therefore no spare parts are available at all.
If your Throttle Quadrant was bought less then 2 years ago you should be able to get a replacement for it from your retailer or from Saitek.
Hope it helps...

Saitek pro flight yoke problem


This is a know fault on Saitek yokes that is now cured. take it back and explain that it is suffering from "Ghost button pushing" and they should change it for a unit that has been updated. This problem is well documented on the web.

Saitek Pro Flight yoke and quadrant stop working


I had a similar problem with Vista Home 32. Finally tried an old external USB 1.1 hub that I had laying around and now everything works all the time in FSX and X-Plane. It is rock solid. Can't make it fail even when I try. I also tried a USB 2.0 hub but had the same problem with that. I can't say for sure it will fix your problem but it is worth a try.
