CH USB Flight Sim Yoke limited prop range issue

I recently bought a CH Products USB Yoke, and it's a very nice, precision
yoke. However, I noticed that I don't have the full range of the propeller
axis when comparing to the throttle quadrant in an aircraft.

First, I have configured the yoke precisely with control manager 3.6 and all controls have their full range according to the program. When I fly the
beechcraft baron, throttle and mixture utilize their full ranges, but the
propeller axis range on the yoke reflects from 25-75% range. Anybody know why this happens? When this happens, I can use the mouse to push the prop further forward and back, so full input is not being received from the yoke for some reason.

I have Windows XP Professional and am using MS Simulator 2004.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I think this is what you do:
Go to-
CH Products Yoke
and find the bar that says Null Zone in the Propeller section. Move that bar so it is the same as the throttle.

Ok, the throttle, mixture, and prop null zones were all equivalent, but the sensitivity on the prop was much lower than the other two. I raised that and I have more control over the prop now.

Thanks for the tips.
