    FSUIPC/ Dual CH Yokes

    Does anyone have any little secrets or suggestions on how to get two CH Yokes that are both connected at the same time to not have occassional spikes or fussing? For the most part, they work okay together but occasionally I will get spiking on the pitch axis. It seems as if there is a way to solve this thru FSUIPC? Currently I just go into the calibration tab and move them both to their full axis' and then hit 'set'. Not sure if that's doing anything, but it seems to help.

    There should be a filtering option for axies Eric. There might be spike elimination too, but I may be thinking of my BI card.

    Okay, just wanted to say that FSUIPC has some cool stuff in it that I didnt understand before last night. I went to the simflight forum, found a document titled "CH Controls with FSUIPC" and I believe I have successfully gotten rid of my conflicts of using two CH Yokes so that each pilot could fly when needed.

    What else was nice is that I didnt realize I could change the behaivor of the rudder pedals to have a very soft feel to the brakes at first and get progressively stronger, quicker (aka 'slope'). Cool!

    She's back flying right again.

    Thumbs up very good information

    Many thanks for this useful information to those of us going for Dual-linked CH-Yokes and Ch rudder-pedals. Haven't tried this out yet, but will go for it soon as possible. Very intersting to see how this works with the break-effect on the rudder-pedals.

    I havent done it with two rudder pedals yet, but it does work pretty good with the yokes. I may eventually get some nicer yokes, but for how they do the trick and are great for those on a budget.

    Problems on my end!!

    Hey Guys,

    I have just connected my FO CH Rudder peddles, now in combination with my Goflight Rudder peddles. When I fly from the right or left seat, the rudder seems to studder for example. Pushing the left peddle forward and it is almost like flightsim is confused. Reading rudder neutral from the Pilot side and left input from the fo side. This results in a very non smooth transition of rudder in the aircraft and it is very non fluid.

    In FSUIPC both rudders activate the numbers without issue.

    Does anyone have any suggestions.

    (I made sure that nothing is assigned in the flightsim assignment screen)

    Trev

    Hi Eric and Trevor,
    I also have the problems with dual CH Flight Sim Yokes (in earlier times it worked fine). After reading the suggestions from Eric I started now to read the documentation from Pete Dowson.
    Maybe here is an idea for Trevor. I Just read, before starting calibrate the axes in FSUIPC you have to disable the Yoke, pedal or joystick in FS (not enough to delete the assignments). Could it be the reason?

    Eric, can you post a link for this? :

    Here's the link- http://forums.simflight.com/viewtopic.php?f=54&t=59729

    And yes, I would definately disable the controls in FS, and assign in FSUIPC. I think that's the area that fixes everything.
