Throttles on Yoke

I recently bought a Yoke with the throttles but i can only setup the power throtttle and the other two have not point. Is there a way to fix that when putting the buttons into IF.

The two other throttles are axis so you can’t.

I don’t use them on my set up.

I have the same flight yoke and quadrant, really fun to fly hope you enjoy it as well

Yeah, since we don’t have variable pitch props (blue handle) and mixture settings (red handle), I wouldn’t imagine those would serve much purpose in IF

Server Ghost does your Yoke disconnect mid flight sometimes

No, could you describe how its disconnecting?

If I’m in a long flight all the sudden it disconnects from the computer and I have to fly with my iPad from there

Hmm, so by the looks of it you’re using liveflight to communicate with the iPad and yoke.

I’m not entirely familiar with that type of connection because I use a USB connection on my android so I cut out live flight from the setup.

I used it once or twice though- is your computer network going into a sleep state? It sounds like its losing its connection because of the network

Can I use a USB on IOS

The compiter is on the whole time and my WiFi works on everything else but maybe that is it

Another thing is the yoke might not have enough power? Are you using the right USB connection to supply enough power? External power supply maybe?

I’m using the Yokes USB plugging it into the computer and than a iPhone charger into the computer connecting to my ipad

Unfortunately, my understanding is iOS doesn’t have that option to use a USB type connection.

@Kirito_77 do you know anything about iPads and USB connections for controls?

As far as I’m aware, there are very limited devices that can connect to the Apple Lightning port because apple are too “security obsessed” (it’s a control thing really). That’s the main reason LF connect exists to allow for that connection.

And to further that, Lightning ports do not supply enough of a power output to support most external peripherals.

Without a rooted iPad (jailbreaking), there would not be any way that I’m aware of to utilize this USB port.

Do you know where I could buy this?

It’s a Saitek Pro Flight Yoke system

That’s a nice set up you have there!
