Need Tech Help - CH controls with ELITE Flight Sim
Vanity | 2/25/10

Posted on 02/25/2010 12:47:21 PM PST by pabianice

I am running ELITE Fl9ight Sim IFR Trainer on a PC with XP. I am using the CH Flight Sim Yoke and CH Pro Pedals. I am unable to get the pedals to work with the sim. I have tried several different procedures to no avail. Can anyone help? I have emailed CH with no results. Thanks.

CH here. No, sorry, I can't help. In fact, I don't even have a clue what you're talking about.

Are you logged in?

;^)

Sounds like your control unit is not set up properly.

Do you use a controller or keyboard?

The game setup should allow you to set which keys control breaks (normally B key)

Make sure that you have device drivers installed for devices.

Find CH Products “Control Manager” on your computer. It should be in “all programs” if you’re using XP, and if you used the CD to install the drivers. Bring up this program and insure your pedals are connected via a USB port (I assume you’re using the pedals with USB connectors).

Control Manager should recognize your pedals and allow you to calibrate them, if they’re properly connected to the computer.

I use the CH yoke and pedals with FSX, but Elite should also recognize the pedals if they are connected properly.

I also use the Elite 8.5 with CH controls. As I remember it was very straightforward to set up. Unfortunately it’s been a while and I don’t recall the details. I found the sales people at Elite helpful and quite knowledgeable about the set-up routines. Some of the sales people seem to double as tech help. I’d recommend giving them a call directly.

I’m not familiar with this sim, but reinstalling/updating your device drivers is a general procedure that works rather often.

I have received the help I needed. The trick is to deinstall the Pref file and restart the sim. This brings-up the control set box. You also have to install the rudder separately from the yoke/console controls. Thanks to all for the advice.
