C172 throttle problems on p3dv5

Post wthielke »

I just installed p3dv5, fsuipc6 and the latest C172 installation. I copied my fsuipc.ini file from my p3dv4 installation, where everything had been working perfectly.

I'm having trouble with the throttle. I'm using a Saitek TPM for the throttle. The throttle is very erratic, jumping back and forth when I move it. For example, sometimes when I throttle back to zero, it will jump up to a mid setting (as observed visually in the sim). I tried recalibrating under FSUIPC, but it didn't help. I also calibrated it under P3D. No joy.

I can't tell where the problem is. The mixture control seems to work fine as do my other hardware controls.

Solved in p3d I went to settings, axis settings, selected the TPM and found an assignment for the throttle. I deleted it. Now everything works fine. It's being controlled by FSUIPC.

Thanks for the update Wes. You solved the problem before I was able to reply, but yeah, sounds like a classic case of a control conflict which is always a possibility when using external software like FSUIPC.

Cheers,
