Saitek yoke's accuracy prroblem.

Hello,

I'm using Pro Flight Yoke System with Throttle quadrant and I have recently found out that throttles aren't accurate any more. They are just jumping up and down while they haven't been moved. And today another problem has accored. Yoke's chronograph is "bulbing" and therefor from time to time yoke is not accurate eather.

Thanks for answers.

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...

I have just bought a Pro Flight yoke and throttle system it has a computer cd with it my question is this...Do you put in the disc just before loading up the yoke and throttle system??


How to Set Up a Saitek Proflight Yoke System Instructions
    Mounting the Yoke
Mounting the Yoke
  1. Determine where you will set it up. You need a desk or table with a wide, flat surface. Clear away objects on the desk that might be in the way or that could be accidentally knocked off. The yoke must be mounted on top of the table and takes up a good deal of space, but the throttle may be mounted in front of or even under under the table if you prefer.

  2. Remove both units from the box carefully. The system is lightweight, but care should be taken not to drop it. Note that there are also some loose parts in the box including the large clamp which attaches the yoke and a smaller clamp for the throttle unit. Note that there are some instructions and diagrams on the back of the box that may be of use.

  3. Place the yoke on the surface and position it where you want it.

  4. Pick up the yoke clamp assembly and make sure that the threaded plastic bolt is inserted, but not screwed in. The clamp fits underneath the table with the two upper prongs sliding into the corresponding holes on the front of the unit.

  5. Adjust the yoke and clamp as needed to insure it is in the exact position you want. Then tighten the plastic bolt. Test the yoke to make sure it is stable and does not move on the table when you manipulate the controls.

  6. Pick up the throttle unit and its clamp assembly. Unlike with the yoke, the clamp assembly must be screwed into the back of the throttle unit using small screws. Note that it may be attached in two different directions depending upon how you wish to mount the throttle to your table (either above or in front of it). Decide now which way will work best for you. See the images on the box for reference.

  7. Position the throttle clamp around the table surface and tighten the plastic bolt, just as you did for the yoke.

  8. Connecting it to Your Computer
  9. Look at the back of the yoke. There is a single USB cable which is permanently attached to the yoke. Plug this cable directly into a USB port on your PC. The ports on the rear of a computer usually work better for this purpose than those on the front.

  10. Look at the back of the throttle unit. There should be a single cord coming out the back of it. Note that it is not a USB cable. Instead it has a round connector, like those used on non-USB keyboards and mice. Plug this cable into the round port on the back of the yoke.

  11. Turn your computer on. It should recognize the yoke as a new plug and play device. Note that the computer will see the yoke and throttle as a single device rather than as two separate ones. The included software is not required. The yoke should work as soon as it is plugged in.

  12. Go to website http://saitek.com/uk/down/drivers.php to download and install the latest drivers.

  13. Assign buttons and commands directly through your favorite flight simulator.

  14. Additional peripherals such as rudder pedals or another throttle unit may be added using the USB port on the back of the yoke.

jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

The yoke has effectively got a USB hub built in, and it sounds like your throttles are getting power from the hub okay, but the yoke is not. Suggest you return it for a replacement to Saitek

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!

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
