Hi
I have acquired an intermittent problem with prop pitch. Any plane. Prop pitch seams to randomly change down and then back up again. Makes take off's interesting.
Not had this before! Any ideas what may have happened to cause this?

Problems like this are usually associated with joystick button/axis problems, assuming of course that you have Increase & Decrease Prop Pitch assigned to joystick buttons or a controller axis. If not, have you spilled something on your keyboard lately?

hi Horseback thanks for reply.
I will have a play at recalibrating my X45, and
see if that makes a difference.

Keyboards clear! Only just mind, the amount of
times I get bounced on-line, there is usually

Issue resolved.
Dubious connection between X45 joystick and
throttle, (a bent connector pin). Weird it only
effected prop pitch. Didn't think to look at hardware doh! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/35.gif Thanks again!
