Ok i know I'm kicking a dead horse but the search function is overloaded with this and not especially helpful. If I have the stick moved off-center in the same spot for an extended period of time it re-calibrates to the the off center position as if that is centered. Anyone have an ideas on how to prevent the auto-calibration from occurring in flight?

I suspect that perhaps you have the stick plugged into a USB hub or on the front ports, I think it may not be getting enough power. The stick calibrates when you plug it in or unplug it (does this when booting up too as it is detected) and should not be calibrating during use, so it may be a USB power issue. You may also want to disable power management for the usb ports in question.

Hello,

I had this problem for a long time which put me off flying for quite a bit but this post fixed it for me a few months ago when I finally came across it:

Basically it was a registry problem - the weird drifting off thing hasn't happened since although I've not been playing that much. Hope this helps and of coure - tamper with the registry at your own risk!!

I will check both - I'm running the X-52 through my G15 keyboard so it could very well be a power issue. I'll also hit the registry. This is a new problem that I have not seen before. Tyvm for the responses http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Oh yeah, take it out of the keyboard and plug it into the back of your pc or a powered hub. I tried to run my trackIR through my G15 once and it flipped the F out, lol!

I usually find a solution in the Saitek forum (UK). You'd better try over there, also.

Cheers,

After a bunch of testing this weekend it only seems to be affecting my modded install. My regular installation works fine. I guess I can do without flying my Lufthansa Ju-52 routes for a bit.
