I use a Saitek Evo and I'm having trouble with gunnery. I'm flying the p-39 now and could use some advice/settings.

I looked over Tully's pages nad I'm not sure I am setting it up right.The sight is moving to much when I make small adjustment to the stick when aiming.

Setup is about
1,7,15,24,33,47,61,75,90,100

Try "The Author's" settings in the article linked under my sig picture. At first glance they may seem insanely sensitive, but after a half hour of practice with them I think you'll find it helps on sticks with light spring forces.

Edit: For the P-39 you may need to tone down the roll settings a bit though http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

btw, it might help to properly trim out the p-39 and 63...if u ever do try the 63. always trim in elevator, rudder, then wings. rl pilots did this. in the case of the p-63, this plane turns into a demon once its properly trimmed out. it wont stall as much, but like the 39, if u manhandle it too much, it will buck.

The EVO is a light spring stick?

I must have somehow gotten hold of an abberation because my EVO is like a stick set in concrete. It takes considerable force to make a control adjustment.It's much stiffer than the MS Sidewinder ever was.

As I have written before I fly with all my settings on 100 and enjoy what I consider superbly precise control:


[rts_joystick]
1X=0 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 0
1Y=0 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 0
1Z=0 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 0
1RZ=0 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 100 0
FF=0

Flying a Me-109 E-4 in Lowgrin's DCG Poland '39 campaign I have been able to down 11 of those pesky P11's,in the first week, that are notoriously difficult to nail because of their slow speed and high maneuverability. Full real settings.

Tully, ever since I got my Evo about a month ago I have been changing joystick profiles constantly since it seems none of them suited me. These are by far the best settings I have flown with. They're keepers.

Thanks buddy.

I know this isn't exactly what you were asking for, but I have some advice http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif. When I first got my Evo about a year ago I was having trouble shooting because when I used the number 3 button for my cannons it would often move my rudder around a bit. However, when I lowered the whole platform down (buttons 2, 3, and 4) to as far down as it would go, it stopped doing that and made my gunner much more accurate...it's worth a try!

JG7_Rall I'll try that too. Thanks.
