Annoying throttle control on Saitek X52

Recommended Posts

I have just started with the lessons for p-51. But I find the throttle control on the x-52 annoying.

When I try to set low rpm's I constantly struggle with the extra force being needed around the 20% area of the throttle control. I need to hit RPM's in this area for the lesson to advance, and have to balance the throttle right on a "bump" on the controller. I don't see the purpose of creating the controller with this feature. It is usable at the top, to control afterburner in jets but why have it in the low area? I wan't the throttle to move smoothly all the way.

 

I would like to turn it off (can't be done without taking the controller apart and modify it I guess)

or find a setup where the lowest part before the bump is not used.

Any ideas or should I just learn to accept this "bump"? :mad:

Have you tried adjusting the axis curve in the control options? Or for the lesson, change the controls to a different axis or button.

Adjustable with the screw on left side of throttle but removing the detent makes it smooth all the way but also makes the throttle more "loose" in my mind. Try adjusting it first.

Remove the detent. Easy and reversible.

Thank you all for the replies.

 

I took the controller apart and removed the detent.

Easy. Nice guide from Devrim and Greb.

Works perfect now.

 

English is not my main language so had a lot of trouble googleling my problem. And detent was not in my vocabulary :)
