Now this may have been addressed somewhere else, but I'll post again anyway.

Lately while just sitting in the cockpit looking down I see the yoke and rudder pedals jitterbugging around.
Not due to any interaction from me.

I've a CH Eclipse yoke.

Anyone else ever experience this?
If so, what causes this effect and how did/do you fix it?

Any help is appreciated.

George

In my experience with all my CH products, usually it can be caused by plugging the CH products into an non-powered or under powered USB hub.

If that isn't the case, the sensors are just very sensitive, and it is translating the .001 degree of sensed movement into the game.

A good way to fix this is to use the CH Control Manager software to calibrate your CH products.

It may not remove this completely but it should help reduce it. If it really bothers you once you have gone through all the steps, you can also considerputting a small null-zone to the controls using P3D or FSX.


Does that help any?

that does sound like a little noise or the power issue. If cripps power suggestion doesn't work you can always add it a hint of deadzone in the sim to help with any noise.

thanks,
Lewis

Hey Guys,

Thanks for the replies.

Okay, so I did have the yoke plugged into a powered USB hub.
That's been changed.

Used the CH Control Manager to calibrate and all is well now.
Thanks for the help, Crippy.

George

No problem! I only knew this because I myself went through the same thing trying to figure out why my controls were shaking. I'm a big CH fan / user.


Glad I could help!
Happy Flying! :)
