Normally I won’t call for help or at least to know if I’m the only one having these problem with my Saitek X52 Pro in combination with X-Plane 11 pb11. Anyway, this this time it’s perhaps a good idea to ask others for their experience.
Since I updated to X-Plane 11pb11, my Saitek X52 Pro behaves weird. It is of course calibrated, and that seems OK, but when I’ve loaded the sim, the aileron channels act weird. Ailerons move up and down without touching the joystick. When making a takeoff, the aircraft, in this case the default C172, makes a sharp turn to the left and no control with my Saitek is possible.
Therefore, do others have these problems too? I’m on Mac, running Sierra 10.12.3 and having on my iMac Late 2013 the nVidia driver loaded. Suggestions are most welcome!
Yep never ending proplems , aircraft dont load properly,saiteck, CH controls dont work properly and the frame rate is a slide show , im running high end stuff , it just never ends.
Hi There flyers , I`ve had never ending problems with x-plane 11 Beta and now the x-plane 11 , setting up the controls ie:Saitek x55 rino ,CH pedals , loading aircraft into the system and the frame rate is a slide show , I run the latest computer with hard core graphic card , any ideas ?
Now today, in xplane 11, my multipanel,radio panel,switch panel, all saitek, doesnt goes…
Not having these problems here, but with starting the Vflyteair Piper Cherokee Glass motors in a cold environment. Haven’t had this problem in earlier betas, no matter how long I try cranking the starter I cannot start the motor if environment temperature is below 10 degrees celcius. Oil pressure moves a little then falls down again, retry with priming again and again and again. When I reload the flight with higher temps it’s no problem.
Anybody else experiencing this problem? Or knows how to fix it?
Just to be sure … did you download from vFlyteAir for the Cherokee Glass model the XP11 beta package?
No, I got my aircraft via aerosoft.com, have no beta release yet. Or do you refer to the XP11 texture packs? But I already found an information about this problem on the x-plane.org forums, so maybe if someone finds this post/comment he’ll get the answer here: http://forums.x-plane.org/index.php?/forums/topic/115595-piper-cherokee-140-pb10/
Tobi / Nicotum,
thank you both your feedback and that you’ve found as well as what’s shared.
Tobi, it’s a bug introduced in pb11. The starter torque is insufficient.
You need to increase it in PM or wait for a new beta.
I would try to delete everything from /X-Plane 11/Output/preferences (or move it to another folder).
Thanks for the suggestion. Will try this and feedback follows.
This did the trick. I deleted (and stored the original folder at my Desktop, empties the Preference folder, started XP11, did all the necessary adjustments, including the calibration of my X52 Pro and flew around. All back to normal again. Many thanks draziL.
Angelique, what you’re seeing could be caused by USB problems.
Try to change port and if your x52 is connected to an external hub, be sure that it is a powered one.
Many thanks for your reply.
I changed the connection to another iMac USB port, but still the same problem. That said, no, I don’t use a USB hub, so that can’t be the problem. Else I delete tomorrow the Saitek profile and calibrate it again. I changed also in the sim the aircraft type and airport. I know, it has probably nothing to do with it, but tried that one too. It’s a shame since with the previous pb it all worked.
same problem with saitek rudder system
Has Saitek confirmed that they have a firmware update that is compatible with XP 11 pb11?
But as far as my knowledge goes, Saitek doesn’t exist anymore. That said, no idea where I could find this firmware update? On the other hand, with pb9 is worked OK and now in a sudden it does have this weird behaviour. I also checked my Saitek equipment with XP10.51, but that’s still OK so there’s something with pb11 that breaks something.
Saitek is now owned by Logitech.
Hi Marc, I’m aware of that.
