Question about Saitek 3D Cyborg Graphite JoyStick (SAI10021)

4 Answers

Yaw stick-twist (Z-Axis) stopped working

I upgraded X-Plane to version 9.0 rc-1 and my yaw/nosewheel steering stopped working. I downloaded a stick tester and it is apparently dead.
Q: How do I take it apart (I don't unerstand the drawings on the base) to check for a loose wire on the rheostat?
Q: Should I just buy another one? (I've had this one for nearly four years?
Thanks, Woppo aka Paul Galanti

    Thanks. I tend to agree. Besides there are probably some better sticks/throttles on the market.

  • Woppo Mar 18, 2008

    How does one check Joystick compatibility? X-Plane only recommends very expensive sticks. My Saitek has always worked fine from version 6 on up. I think I'll hit Best Buy and see what's new in the last four years!

Takeing it apart should be a easy task.

You should get it warranty replaced if warranty still exists.


How to take it apart.. Id just start from the bottom, locate the screws and remove them. get a few glasses or cups or something and put the screws on difrent glasses. for exmable the ones that are on the outside to the first cup, then after you remove parts from the joystick put the next screws into the next cup. But Your just going to open it to see if all the wires are ok so I guess your not going to need to open more than the cover.

I would not suggest you open those up, as it's a miracle of science and engineering how they go together in the first place.

on the update, you may have run afoul of a mixed update issue, with the new X Plane..did you check for joystick compatibility first on this?

How can I fix my stabilitrak on my 2010 chev impala


What's wrong with it ? Need more info . Light on ? The first thing to do would be to have the vehicle checked for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ! Get a diagnostic direction , not just replacing parts . Need a professional grade scan tool . Plus reading how stabilitrak works would also be a good Idea . StabiliTrak General Motors Stability Control

Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES)
The vehicle stability enhancement system (VSES) adds an additional level of vehicle control to the electronic brake control module (EBCM).
Yaw rate is the rate of rotation about the vehicle's vertical axis. The lateral accelerometer measures the sideways acceleration of the vehicle. The VSES is activated when the EBCM determines that the desired yaw rate and lateral forces do not match the actual attitude of the vehicle.
The desired attitude of the vehicle are calculated from the following inputs:
• The position of the steering wheel
• The speed of the vehicle
• The lateral, or sideways acceleration of the vehicle
• Yaw rate of the vehicle
• Master cylinder brake pressure
The difference between the desired yaw rate and the actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer. If the yaw rate error becomes too large, the EBCM attempts to correct the vehicle's yaw motion by applying differential braking to the appropriate wheel. The amount of differential braking applied to the left or right front wheel is based on both the yaw rate error and side slip rate error.
The VSES activations generally occur during aggressive driving, in turns, or on poor road conditions, without much use of the accelerator pedal. When braking during VSES activation, the pedal pulsations feel different than the ABS pedal pulsations. The brake pedal pulsates at a higher frequency during VSES activation.

There a number of DTC'S that can set .
DTC C0035-C0050
DTC C0110
DTC C0131
DTC C0161
DTC C0179
DTC C0186
DTC C0196
DTC C0201
DTC C0242 or P0856
DTC C0245
DTC C0292
DTC C0558
DTC C0561
DTC C0563
DTC C0710

Do you know what DTC'S are , and a diagnostic flow chart ?

WHAT IS YAW RATE SENSOR? WHERE IS


The yaw rate sensor measures the relative vehicle motion about the vertical axis through its center of gravity. It is usually located inside the Sensor Cluster located in the middle of the vehicle somewhere , under the console .
The sensor cluster (also called the accelerometer) consists of the yaw rate sensor, roll rate sensor (if equipped with roll stability control), lateral accelerometer and longitudinal accelerometer. The lateral accelerometer measures the acceleration which corresponds to the force involved when the vehicle slides sideways. This acceleration has 2 forms. The first is the centrifugal acceleration which is generated when the vehicle travels around in a circle. The second is the acceleration due to gravity. On level ground there is no contribution from this acceleration. However, if the vehicle is parked sideways on a bank or incline, the sensor measures some lateral acceleration due to gravity even though the vehicle is not moving.

Refer to ABS Description and Operation in Antilock Brake System ! You need to take it an have DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes read ! That will point you to a diagnostic path !

The vehicle stability enhancement system (VSES) adds an additional level of vehicle control to the electronic brake control module (EBCM).
Yaw rate is the rate of rotation about the vehicle's vertical axis. The VSES is activated when the EBCM determines that the desired yaw rate does not match the actual yaw rate as measured by the yaw rate sensor.
The desired yaw rate is calculated from the following parameters:

The difference between the desired yaw rate and the actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer.

The amount of differential braking applied to the left or right front wheel is based on both the yaw rate error and side slip rate error.
The VSES activations generally occur during aggressive driving, in turns or on bumpy roads without much use of the accelerator pedal. When braking during VSES activation, the pedal pulsations feel different than the ABS pedal pulsations. The brake pedal pulsates at a higher frequency during VSES activation.
If you do not know about this , I suggest you take it to a ASE certified repair shop that does !

I have a 2007 they suburban taho and the stabill track light is on


The Stability System is part of the anti lock brakes ! The place to start is
Diagnostic Starting Point - Antilock Brake System
Begin the system diagnosis with Diagnostic System Check - Vehicle .The Diagnostic System Check will provide the following information:
?€¢
The identification of the control modules which command the system


?€¢
The ability of the control modules to communicate through the serial data circuit


?€¢
The identification of any stored diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) and their status

The use of the Diagnostic System Check will identify the correct procedure for diagnosing the system and where the procedure is located.
This Is going to be Greek to you probably ! This is where a up scale scan tool is needed , or a factory one ! Your going to need to have vehicle scanned for DTC'S diagnostic trouble codes ! Is the ABS light on as well ?
A sample of DTC'S
DTC C0186 00: Lateral Accelerometer Circuit

DTC C0186 5A: Lateral Accelerometer Circuit Erratic
DTC C0196 00: Yaw Rate Circuit

DTC C0196 5A: Yaw Rate Circuit Erratic
DTC C0252 00: VSES Sensor Uncorrelated
The Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES) is activated by the electronic brake control module (EBCM) and calculates the desired yaw rate and comparing it to the actual yaw rate input. The desired yaw rate is calculated from measured steering wheel position, vehicle speed, and lateral acceleration. The difference between the desired yaw rate and actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer. If the yaw rate error becomes to large, the EBCM will attempt to correct the vehicles yaw motion by applying differential braking to the left or right front wheel.
This is a problem you should take to the dealer or a ASE certified repair shop ! Or you can try to reset the system by disconnecting the battery cables an touching the cable ends together for 60 seconds ! But if there is a real fault in the system ( bad sensor ) The light will come back on ! Maybe not right away ! A couple of days or weeks etc....

What does it mean when my 2008 trailblazer LT stabilitrac service light comes on?


Service Stability System Message The message center displays the service stability system message when any one of many VSES-disabling DTCs is set. The EBCM sends a serial data message to the IPC requesting this display.
It means there is a problem an till you get it fixed the stability control system is disabled ! ( EBCM ) electronic brake control module Has detected a problem an set a DTC - diagnostic trouble code in it's memory an had the message displayed !
Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES)
The vehicle stability enhancement system (VSES) provides added stability during aggressive maneuvers. Yaw rate is the rate of rotation about the vehicle's vertical axis. The VSES is activated when the electronic brake control module (EBCM) determines that the desired yaw rate does not match the actual yaw rate as measured by the yaw rate sensor.
The desired yaw rate is calculated by the EBCM using, primarily, the following inputs.
?€¢
The position of the steering wheel


?€¢
The speed of the vehicle


?€¢
The lateral, or sideways acceleration of the vehicle

The difference between the desired yaw rate and the actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer. When a yaw rate error is detected, the EBCM attempts to correct the vehicle's yaw motion by applying brake pressure to one or more of the wheels. The amount of brake pressure which is applied varies, depending on the correction required. The engine torque may be reduced also, if it is necessary to slow the vehicle while maintaining stability.
VSES activations generally occur in turns during aggressive driving. When braking during VSES activation, the pedal may pulsate. The brake pedal pulsates at a higher frequency during VSES activation than during ABS activation.

It's difficult to determine witch trim buttons effect the props. The only way to do this is durring flight. At low power, since you are working with 4 axis, each set of 2 buttons will effect the rotational speed of 1 motor. Typicaly in this set up, the left stick will control power and yaw(up and rotation left and right), while the right stick controls direction and pitch.(forward/reverse and bank left or right) Here is what I think you need. The left side bottom butons, control horizontal control. If you take off and notice the helo going to the left(banking, not turning) click the right button to attain horizontal stability. If you notice it is going slightly forward click the bottom button on the right side of the left stick. The same can be said with the axis control on the right stick. I hope to see this aircraft on youtube, as there is a shortage of these flying stabile anywere. good luck.
