Question about Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System Flight Simulator

Open Question

My Saitek yoke system suddenly seems to loose the roll axis center. without touching the control, the ailerons move by themselves to an extreme right turn position. On the panels of all aircraft equipped with an aileron trim wheel, the wheel will constantly turn on its own towards the right turn stops. In order to fly straight, I have to compensate with the yoke towards the left end stop position. Could there be a rheostat problem? I have tried plugging and unplugging but nothing seems to work. It is only about 8 months old. Please help. Thank you H.Baumann

although this did not solve my problem, it is worth a try to reset the calibration settings stored in the windows registry.

These are the steps for it:

To recalibrate, first unplug the controller.

Go to start/run and type 'regedit'

The registry editor will have a list of folders on the left hand side. Go
down into the following folders in order.

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE (HKEY_CURRENT_USER if on VISTA)
System
CurrentControlSet
Control
Media Properties
Private Properties
Direct Input

Inside the Direct Input folder, delete any folder that begins VID_06A3.

Once done, close the editor.

Plug the controller back in and move all the
axes (including throttle) through their full range of movement 4 times.

Now go to control panel/game controllers/properties to see if there are any changes to the test screen?

If it helps you, it didn't do it for me ;) but I reckon it's worth a try

SOURCE: Using fs9 with Saitek yoke - aileron control

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......!

SOURCE: My Saltek flight yoke is not functioning anymore.

This is a hardware defect , nothing to do with the drivers, software or the OS you are using in .
The position and movement of the control elements is recorded by a simple rotating potentiometer. The analogue signal from the potentiometer is converted to digital by a simple AD converter circuit inside it. If one of the control elements no longer reacts properly the first thing you must check is the corresponding potentiometer - open the unit, access the potentiometer and see if you can repair or replace it. Then check the status of the components on the control board and finally the wire connections between all of them - a wire might have been broken.

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...

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.

Using fs9 with Saitek yoke - aileron control drifts to the right. Had the yoke for several years - it didn't use to do this. Reinstalled fs9 after a year of none use and now have this drift trouble.

Aileron control


You didn't say what game you are using this in. Many flight sims allow you to setup controls more specifically and to your liking. I would look for such a menu in game and reverse that axis.

X-axis trouble


I had the same problem with my X52 and searched high and low on the internet for a solution. What I did was pop the base off and found a loose connection on the x-axis wires. I re-routed both the x and y axis contact wires underneath the p/s2 port and put it back together. Seems to be working fine now. I will not that opening up the controller will void your warranty and it also could be possible that your x-axis problem could stem from something completely different from what was wrong with mine. You may contact me if you need any help with it. mynameisbob AT gmail DOT com.
