Logitech Rumblepad 2 question

Pro Member Trainee

Hello folks,

Just installed FSX and it plays beautifully on my computer! A very good purchase, I would think.

My question is this. I'm using the Logitech Rumblepad 2, which has 2 analog controls.

The left is fine, but the right is not. The right is set (by default) for throttle. When I move the stick to the right it chokes the throttle and when I move it to the left it opens it (which is desired).

However, when I let the stick move back to center (from the right) the throttle increases. This leaves me with having to hold the right analog control to the right.

Any ideas on what I may be able to do to resolve this?

Thanks!

Flight Simulator sees the throttle axis as a lever that moves from point A to B and all positions in between. This is how a real aircrafts throttle works. Your game pads right(and left) stick is seen as a mini-joy stick that centers. The game pad just isn't designed for Flight Simulator type control inputs. You can try assigning throttle movement to two buttons but I suggest getting a Joy stick with a view hat switch. 🙂

You know I went into BestBuy to look for that logitech joystick, and they had one on display, but I couldn't find it.

I guess I'll take this controller back and try at another one.

Thanks for the help!

You're welcome. Try Wal-mart, it was the lowest price I could find.
