I did a thing...

I have been a member for some time now… did a discovery flight at my local airport. Bought a Logitech extreme 3D joystick. Flew a bunch of hours GA using VORS via IFAssistant. Learning a lot via fly8ma (see his website and YouTube channel for a free online ground school!).

Recently had the benefit of a bonus from work. Did a thing, pretty expensive thing; and although it’s a huge learning curve again it’s been an absolute joy to play with. My new Saitek Yoke, thrust, and rudder setup.

Long story short if anyone runs a Mac and wants to parallel a joystick and has any questions using LiveFlight please hit me up!

I plan to fly around the world in a TBM when I’m a little smoother with all the new control points.

Really cool setup! I also have the Saitek Yoke, thrust and rudder peddals.

How did you get the rudder to work, as I can’t get mine to work?

Everything was ordered from Amazon sir.

@Chris_Wing It honestly worked the first time I set it up. That being said the brake portion if pressed slams the ailerons to the right. Do you get any input from the pedals at all? (And I assume you are running the most current version of LiveFlight?) I did restore control settings to default in IF. Then I reset axis on LiveFlight and calibrated them. Then back into IF and tapped use network controller. Hope any of that helps!

It also took some time to get the settings right.

0 ms delay in LiveFlight advanced settings.

No null zone and full sensitivity seems to be optimal so far.

Planning on doing much more testing (possibly on the TS!) after work today.

For the iPad stand, iPhone charging dock, and Saitek system: 450~

iPad Air 2 and 2015 MacBook Pro prices not included! ;)

Also not accounting for the Pro Subscription, or the IFAssistant in-app purchases, LiveFlight subscription, ForeFlight subscription…

I have apparently made this a very expensive hobby over the years.

This is silly, but my favorite thing so far is taxing with my feet. The realism it brings is pretty incredible!
