I just installed the CH USB rudder pedals and I was wondering if there is a way to "disable" the twist action for rudders on my MS FFB 2 joystick? (Don't tell me to throw it away/i/smilies/16x16_smiley-wink.gif )

Do you mean to stop it twisting at all, or just to get
FB to ignore the twist?

I would like it to ignore the twist. I realize that you can't stop the twist action.

set your pedals in the HOTAS for rudder.

Once you do that it won't use the twisty on joystick

Salute Jim

Open your IL-2 game.

Open "Controls"

Just scroll down to the bottom till you see the HOTAS header, and click on the column to right of 'Rudder'. You should get an indentation.

Now apply right rudder, being careful not to apply the toe brake at the same time or you will get the toe brake activating your rudder. (don't apply left rudder, as it will give u a reversed rudder)

You will now have your rudders controlled by the pedals.

Now, the same way, set your wheel brakes under HOTAS so they are controlled by the toe brake on the CH Pedals.

Finally, if you want you can then allocate your twist grip on the joystick to another HOTAS control if you like, ie. it could be Aileron Trim.

However, I don't usually do this, as more often than not, you inadvertently twist the stick during maneuvering and end up putting yourself out of trim. Usually better to leave it unused.

By the way, if you are looking for a good Squad to fly online with, then consider us. We have been flying, in RED BARON, EAW, ACES HIGH and IL-2 for 8 years.

Hey Jim use your twisthandle for rudder trim...... dont just waste the input. Rudder trim is great for lining up those shots where precision is more critical... I cant tell yoiu how many kills i have missed because i overcompensated with my rudder. Try it...you will like it once you get used to it.
