View Full Version : CH pedal and stick setup

04-12-2005, 07:34 AM
I got my new CH pedals and stick and the difference is amazing, having the rudder seperate to the other axis's on the stick makes an unbelivable difference but there very very sensitive.

Im using:

X=0 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 100 0
Y=0 1 4 9 16 25 36 49 64 81 100 0

As my my stick settings and Im finding it very jerky, what settings do CH stick owners use here? The movement in the first few degress of the stick movement is allot when translated into the plane movement, more than I would have anticipated with those settings.

I was dubious at first about the difference pedals would make but its totally different to fly, planes seem to respond allot differently than with a stick with the rudder twist. Much easier to fly and line up on a target.

1 happy customer!

I'm one of the ignorant, and lucky ones. I'm running at the default settings and the stick is smooth as silk. But check at CH-hangar.com. A very informative forum there. http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-very-happy.gif

Here are my settings. Yaw and roll work great, pitch works well for all deflection shots but it is a bit harder to do head-ons and quick manoevers.

It is important to remember that it is not low sensitivity that makes the stick wobbly but the difference between the settings, so try to keep the difference in the first four sliders less than 10. For the pedals, curvature is less important but keep sensitivity low (ignore those people that have 100 at everything http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/354.gif).

And keep the CH windows settings at default.

It's all about finding the settings that suit you with CH gear, once you do that you will be a happy man...

1X=0 45 56 61 67 72 78 84 90 96 100 0 roll
1Y=0 20 27 34 42 52 63 74 85 93 100 0 pitch
1RZ=0 3 9 16 25 34 44 54 67 80 100 0 yaw

I'm very interested in getting a set of pedals. But here in the UK they sell for about 120, thats over $200.

Are they really worth that much? Or is there a cheaper way of getting them?

I payed 119 for mine, so far I think there worth it. Makes so much of a difference I can't really explainhttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Yeah, the 120 quid for pedals was a bit like sucking on a lemon, as in... http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/cry.gif ...but two years down the line I can't imagine any other way to 'fly' http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Two years of problem-free pedalling with no sign of any wear, along with a Fighterstick that has given no problems despite being heavily hacked about....just think how much I could have spent discovering how many of the cheap stick are dogs?

Regarding sensitivity, here's my settings to try
X=0 0 3 7 15 25 35 50 66 84 100 0
Y=0 0 5 10 17 25 33 43 54 71 100 0
Z=0 0 8 19 29 39 51 62 75 86 100 0
They seem to work fine for me.

You have to take a 'longer' approach to steering with this flightgear. I think I get much more realistic effects without the digital & infrared nadgery, but it all needs to be used gently and with forethought. This is not a 'jerker's' stick at all, it can't be used for 'stirring' like some of the cheaper offerings are.

But if it's clean flying that you're into, then this really is the best choice.

Thanks for the help.

The quality of both the pedals and stick is apparent as soon as you get them out the box!

For a community that bickers like old ladies it sure can be helpful sometimeshttp://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif.

Is it possible to set up sensitive for two joystick?

From one of them I made pedals...
