SOURCE: I have a saitek proflight

Hi,

To recalibrate, first unplug the yoke.

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 (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 yoke 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 everything is ok on the test screen.

If the problem persists then test the device on another PC. If the problem still occurs then it is most likely a hardware fault.

Please tell me if this has been of any help. Thanks for using Fixya.

H output transistor blows off as yoke connected,corresponding capacitors replaced.

It sounds that the horizontal scan winding or the yoke is shorted. Replace it. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Google earth says i don't have a graphics card

You may have an onboard graphics controller built into the motherboard and not a PCIe board physically connected to a slot dependent card. Google requires a High definition video processor to replicate Google Earth photos. The resolution needs to be approximately 1600 Pixels x 1200 Pixels or greater. You can get an inexpensive Color Card from TigerDirect.Com, plug it into the slot on the motherboard and attach your monitor to it. If you can get HD resolution 1900 Pixels plus, the visuals are excellent.

In FSX (Win7 64bit) couldn't get enough speed to take off! Found that when Saitek proflight quadrant set at max only around 85% power delivered. Had to use mouse pointer in virtual cockpit to advance...

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 a Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System with Throttle Quad and it works fantastic with MS FSX, but if I try to use it with my Proflight, as soon as it starts, it does a wild left hand turn and just gets...

Try to get the latest drivers from www.saitek.com

Try it on another computer and if it does the same there too you might want to consider that it can be faulty...and you might want to request a replacement for it.

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.
