Question about Logitech Extreme 3D Pro Joystick

1 Answer

Sticking Joy Stick

When attempting to level off after climbing to altitude, the control stick will not allow the aircraft to level out to a smooth altitude attitude, even with very small stick movements...wondering if there is any kind of lubricant that could be applied to the electircal contacts in the base of the Joy Stick that could eliminate this sticking response....Grampamanning@yahoo.com

    Sorry about the delay in responding...been on the west coast for the past two weeks....the problem exist in both Flight sim 2004 and also in X...have not attempted to open the base of the stick but I was wondering if there was some way of using an non-interfering lubicant either on the stick gimbaling mechanism or on the electrical pick ups...for example,,,graphite or 3in1 applied with a qtip...appreciate your thoughts or ideas..Dickmann

What are the possible reasons a plane would do this?


Departure controllers have blocks of airspace with altitude limits. Chances are that there was other traffic that they needed to have out of the way so they held him at 5000 before clearing him to the next controller's airspace.

, ://i.fixya.nethttp://i.fixya.net25650279-w123deulyqo0pc5nhlq3ghvj-3-0.jpg">
  • Straight and Level Cruise:
Start by setting the RPM to a cruise setting of 2200 RPM, using the throttle. This should give us a cruise speed of about 108 Knots.
Use the yoke to maintain level flight by keeping the small aircraft symbol level and exactly on the "Artificial Horizon" line of the six pack . Keep scanning the rest of the six pack to help maintain level flight. Scanning the six pack will show if you are going straight or turning, climbing or descending or if the airspeed or altitude starts to change. Always use small corrections to the aircraft's attitudes and wait to see the response.

  • Climbing Phase:
We will climb by increasing the throttle to full throttle. Now you can pull back on the yoke to raise the aircraft nose to about ten degrees above the horizon. Now set your climb speed (using the yoke), by changing this 10 degree climb, until you have an airspeed of about 80 knots. meanwhile continuing to scan the six pack at all times and make sure that nothing is changing that you don't want to change. Scanning the six pack will show if you are going straight or turning. or if the airspeed starts to change.
This Aircraft will stall (in a turn) at approximately 53 knots (no flaps) so keep your turns shallow and avoid any speed below 75 knots to allow yourself a margin of safety. Always use small corrections to the aircraft's attitudes and stay well out of any limit zones that are indicated on the instruments.

  • Descent Phase:
A descent to a lower altitude is done by reducing the throttle to an engine speed of about 1500 RPM while setting the air/fuel mixture at full rich (red knob fully inward). If you intend to be descending a long time at low engine power, then you should use carburetor heat to prevent icing. At reduced RPM, the engine will not be producing as much heat so we may have to put on the carburetor heat, or you can occasionally increase the engine speed for a minute to gain some heat and clear the engine.

First we'll cover panel instruments and how they're used.

Familiarize yourself with the six pack.The six instruments in the center of the instrument panel used mostly for IFR (Instrument Flight Rules) and are always in the following order:

  • Top left: The "Airspeed Indicator" shows aircraft airspeed, in knots. (nautical miles) per hour. It also displays the airspeed limitations in white, green, yellow, and red arcs.

  • Top center: The "Artificial Horizon" Has a small aircraft symbol that depicts the aircraft required attitude,for level flight, and shows whether the aircraft is climbing or descending, as well as the angle of bank.

  • Top right: The "Altimeter" a three hand clock type instrument that shows altitude of the aircraft in feet MSL, (feet above mean sea level).

  • Lower left: The "Turn and Bank Indicator" is a dual instrument which tells your angle of bank and whether you are in a coordinated turn. Sometimes called the "Needle Ball". For straight and level flight, keep the wings level and the ball centered.

  • Lower center:The "Heading Indicator". A stable gyro instrument that shows the aircraft's current compass heading. Use the Control Wheel to keep the aircraft on the desired heading.

  • Lower right: The "Vertical Speed Indicator" which tells how fast you are losing or gaining altitude, in feet per minute. Keep this instrument at zero to maintain level flight.

What is altimeter means


The altimeter records your elevation above sea level. Useful when mountain climbing, Tour De France cycle racing the mountain section or flying, which I am sure you do almost every day :>)

A motorhome with Hp of a nissan z24 engine, can it climb steep altitudes? i.e. Andes mountains or the weight of the motorhome would be too much for the engine?


A few ideas. 1) Try the motor home where you are now and see. Find some REALLY steep hills or something and try it out.
2) If it is an automatic transmission, you may need to purchase a "transmission cooler" kit to add on before you try mountain climbing.
3) If it is a stick shift, take along another clutch disc and pressure plate and throwout bearing in case you burn yours up.
4) And remember, cars and trucks that normally operate at sea level will not do well in high mountains. They need to have the timing and/or carburetor set for high altitudes.
5) Many countries outside the USA have different octane ratings on their gasoline, you will need to take along the stuff to set your engine to the octane rating of the gas you buy.

Aircraft controls we'll be covering in this part:

  • Throttle:
A black knob, When pushed forward, puts the engine at full power, when pulled full back, sets the engine at idle. Used for setting engine power for all phases of flight.

  • Fuel Mixture:
A red knob when pushed full inward sets full rich mixture, full back kills the engine. Used for setting fuel mixture to the engine at all altitudes for smoothest running engine. and for shutting down the engine at end of flight.

  • Carburetor Heat:
Used to warm the engine air intake in icing conditions and when long descents with engine at idle, will super cool the engine and could cause engine icing.

Flaps:
A flat handled switch used to select the wing flap positions. This will be used mostly when landing the aircraft. The flaps should be advanced in increments from flaps full up to flaps full down.

  • Fuel tank select:
Used to select and use one of the fuel tanks or "Both Tanks." (primarily to balance the aircraft), Or set both tanks to off (on the ground).

  • Control wheel (Yoke):
This sets the attitude, for climbing or descending, and/or making a turn, normally used in small pitch and/or roll adjustments
.
  • Rudder Pedals:
These are operated by your feet. Press the top edge of the pedals, when on the ground, to apply the brakes. Pressing the lower part of the pedals Helps to keep the aircraft in line the runway in landing/takeoff and coordinated turns in the air.

  • Control trim:
There are two trim wheels below the panel, that, when adjusted properly, will release the pressure on the control wheel mostly in climbs and descents.

My S018 aurora is un-controllable, can barely mantain stability, All we can do is hover, have adjusted trim and spent hours trying to gain control. Frustrated, is there an adjustent screw on the aircraft...


If you mean it is spinning then: Adjust the trim so that you can hover and maintain stability at ALL altitudes and climb rates then i think you mean that once you push some forward on it will now spin. DONT WORRY or HOLD BACK. The craft will now spin but hopefully it will stop and begin moving forward you can now adjust its spin by using the right control stick (or a little trim). After practice it should beome easy.
Also Drafts can effect the craft quite violently so check your area for open doors etc...
hope this helps
