    Trim Wheels - VAS Throttle

    Hi Folks,

    My setup includes a VAS Throttle - very nice & robust. However, I am not able to get the trim wheels to work in conjunction with the FMGS software. They work well with the Project Magenta software, so I know there is nothing wrong with them.

    Anything special I need to do? I have them calibrated within the VAS software, and the thrust levers themselves work well.

    Anyone using the same hardware? Any specific advice?

    Thanks!

    Hi,

    I would contact VAS directly they are responsible for the drivers.

    Best regards,

    Re: Trim Wheels - VAS Throttle

    Hi,

    I contacted them first, naturally, and they said everything is working fine on their end. Actually, the wheels indicate fine on the ground. It is when the aircraft gets airborn that they go full travel one or the other end and stay there for the remainder of the flight.

    I have not tried yet the very latest update of the software - did read though that there was some sort of conflict with the trim wheels and some FSUIPC offsets related to something else. Could this be the reason for the problem?

    I will try the newest update and report back.

    Thanks

    Re: Trim Wheels - VAS Throttle

    Hello Luis,

    I sincerely have no idea on how the VAD driver works, but I don't think it uses the FSUIPC offset, it is most probably using the API system of "my hadrware Connect" application.
    So I would rule off FSUIPC. I guess maybe a calibration issue somewhere?

    Regards,
    Jean Luc

    Hi,

    Updated to the latest software, but issue with trim wheels is still there... This one seems hard to tackle...
    Will try to rule out calibration, but I doubt this is the case since the trim wheels work and indicate well when on the ground...

    Thanks
