MS SW FFB2 problem with rudder

Post by Euclidessn » Fri Apr 07, 2017 11:48 pm

Hello everyone

I have a problem with my Microsoft Sidewinder FFB 2. The rudder is applied to the right all the time.
I could saw it on configuration test. It is all comanded to the right (I had crashed planes just after tkoff many times and I didnt know why)

Could anyone help?

Try going into Windows USB Game Controller dialog and check the rudder axis. Try calibrating. If it shows hard right all the time, then your joystick is probably defective.

Yes... I tried to calibrate, I can move the axis, but it returns full right after release the control.

What could be?

Thats it. I've done the tests and got the same problem.
I decided to open the device and found a broken wire.

Im gonna try to fix that today.

Thanks for the help.
