How do I configure Fighter Ace 3 5 to control the rear flaps and aileron on separate axis. For more than a year my joystick was working well allowing me to control the rear flaps for climbing or diving without moving the Ailerons. Using a side to side motion would control them. However last week I must have set something that has configured my joystick to either move the rear flaps down and the ailerons to a left turn or the rear flaps up and the ailerons to a right turn. I can no longer move these two sets of flaps separately. I have calibrated the joystick in the control panel and in the game with no resolution to my problem. I removed the Fighter Ace game and then reinstalled with no change (I did not shut down my system in between the removal and reinstall though). Any suggestions for how I can reconfigure my game to it's defaults or specifically get the joystick to respond the way I want? Thank you, James

Hello, Here's the solution to your problem, you have to configure the games you're playing for the joystick to work, I believe all games have this option, ussualy in the "configure keyboard and mouse" options menu, click on any funcion you want your joystick to use for each button, and then press the button you want for that function, do that with all buttons of the joystick you want to use, some games need the joystick axis to be configured, just click on left/right and move your joystick in the desired direction, same procedure to up/down, if your joystick has a throttle wheel, do the same for it (if needed). Procedure is simple and most games has small variants of this procedures I gave you, but they are simple to figure out. Hope my solution helps, have a nice day :)
The Saitek joystick yoke used to work perfectly. It was only recently that I experienced the aileron drift!
I un-installed and deleted averything related to FS9 and then started to load FS9 and all the add ons etc. The yoke works perfectly again. I have no idea......!
If it's anything like an authentic joystick control, there may be a switch where your fingers rest which must be gripped/engaged in order to achieve movement, but i've never actually seen this controller so I can't be certain.
OK I had the same problem..What u have to do when u set up the controls is leave ur throttle axis (little sliding doohickey at the bottom of ur joystick) in the middle position.That should do the trick..
resolve this issue, use the Game Controllers tool to manually add a
2-axis, 4-button joystick. To do this, follow these steps:
Click Start, and then click Control Panel.
Double-click Game Controllers.
Under Controller, click Microsoft SideWinder 3D Pro, and then click Remove.
Click 2-axis, 4-button joystick, and then click OK.
Click OK to close the Game Controllers tool.
I have a Saitek X-45 that I use. It comes with a throttle and joystick. It's controls are very smooth and can be adjusted for increased firmness. There are a lot of programmable buttons that work great for FS2002. The only draw back is the joystick does not have aileron control by twisting it, you have to program a rocker button on the throttle. Unless of course you go all the way and buy foot controls. It looks like the X-52 is the updated version of my controller but it isn't cheap. The X-45 works good for what I need it for.
Is this an issue only with this game or other games as well? Here are some articles from the logitech website that may be of some help... http://logitech-en-amr.custhelp.com/cgi-bin/logitech_en_amr.cfg/php/enduser/ std_adp.php?p_faqid=289
