Ive just started using the x45, getting used to the rudder contol etc which in reading other post seems to be the biggest hurdle for most people to get used to.

Whats bugging me the most is the throttle works 'backwards' ie pulling back for more power instead of pushing foward. I have never flowen a real plane so I have no idea how they are suposed to work but it feels wrong to me, also Ive notice in the planes Ive been flying in game that the throttle leavers work opposite to the way I move my controller.

Anyone else noticed this and/or is there a way to reverse the way the throttle works?

I believe that you can, although for the life of me I can't remember which setup area to go to. Try the Saitek profiler, perhaps you might be able to do it from there.
Cheers!


Edit - http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_redface.gif Damn, I'm an idiot. It's more than 'I believe that you can', I've always had it set up like that! The answer is a couple of replies below I believe.

I've had the X45 for a while, and you are right the rudder does take some getting used to - I previously had the MSFF2 with a twist grip rudder - but it feels quite natural now.

The throttle thing is configurable - I have mine with forward to increase throttle but I know some people reverse it to give easier access to the rudder in flight. Just a matter of personal preference but you can change yours if you want to. There are a few peoplw with X45 profile links on their sigs in this forum which you can use as a starting point (Adlabs springs to mind). You can then adjust these using the Saitek software to get to what you want.

Hope this helps.

Go to your keymapper, and then go all the way to the bottom, in the HOTAS section.

Put your throttle at 0, click the throttle button onscreen, and them push your throttle forward. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

LOL. The easiest path is a straight line. Just like he said, use the IL2 ingame keymapper.

If you have any questions about resolutions and detail settings, make sure you ignore those replies that tell you go to Control Panel or any other round-about way. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
