FS Force and P3D V4

Post by Emile » Sun Jun 18, 2017 2:50 pm

Hello,
FS Force is installed and seams to work BUT all my aircrafts are running to left on the runway and taking off also the left.
I have to correct a lot with my FF stick. :oops:

Any recommendations.

I did NOT have this with the V3 P3D.
Thanks in advance

If you look in the external view, or the virtual cockpit, is the rudder hard left?

That looks fine. Are you saying everything is normal now?

Hello,
NO it is not solved, I have less "going to the left" but I need to compensate a lot ...
I do not know what to do to solve it totally.

PS This on ALL Aircrafts

Recommendations?
thanks in advance

I know you said you calibrated your joystick, but we need to make sure the physical joystick is sending correct signals to the simulator. Please follow these steps:
  1. Start a flight and just leave the aircraft sitting on the tarmac.
  2. Make sure your FF stick is centered.
  3. Look down in the virtual cockpit at the rudder pedals. Are they centered?
  4. Switch to outside view by pressing the "S" key.
  5. If necessary, swivel the view so you can see the rudder of the aircraft. Is it centered, ie. in the neutral position?
  6. Are the other control surfaces also centered? Ailerons? Elevator?

You might also want to check the weather settings. Set to clear day and check to see wind a 0.

Hello,

I made a test WITHOUT FSForce (exit in the addons) and I do not have this behavior.
Aircraft not going to the left ...on taxiway, runway and takeoff... :oops:


I do not fly with VC only with 2D panels

Forget this ...
IT IS NOT CORRECT ...

"I made a test WITHOUT FSForce (exit in the addons) and I do not have this behavior.

I think there is a misunderstanding here. I'm not asking you to make a permanent change to the way you fly with flight simulator, I am simply asking you to perform a one time sequence of steps to help diagnose the problem with your joystick. Surely you can do that, can't you? If the airplane you regularly fly doesn't have a VC, for the purposes of these steps, switch to one that does, like the default C172. We're trying to determine if the left pull you experience is hardware related or software.

Hello,
I have made some screenshots BUT ALL ARE TOO BIG , I need to reduce the size ...
1/ Tail 1 = at start the aircraft is on the runway and the TAIL is already to the left
2/ Rudder For me the rudder seams good.

I will come back when the screenshots are smaller...

Well, that definitely explains why your aircraft is pulling to the left. Your joystick may be defective. It is probably sending out a constant hard-left signal even though you are not twisting the handle. I think you said you already tried calibrating, but you might want to try it again, paying special attention to the Rz-Axis (twisting the joystick handle). If calibrating doesn't help, there's not much you can do. Although ... I recently heard from a customer who was experiencing a very similar problem. He ended up taking the joystick apart and found a wire that had broken off. After soldering it back in place, it worked perfectly! Who knows. Maybe you can fix it.

Hello,
The "left" turn is solved after , following your suggestion, changing the calibration in P3D V4 HF1.
I still need your help concerning the back ailerons when I "fly" these are "vibrating?"

Which calibration must I try to change (see screenshot) X Axis, Y Axis, ....

Thanks in advance
