Very sensitive Saitek Throttle Quadrant (percentages on HUD)

Recommended Posts




I have a Saitek Throttle Quadrant, which is great to use with my X-56, however I've always noticed that the throttle quadrant is very very sensitive. My percentages on the HUD are always flickering between 1% difference (ie-going from 90% to 91% and back within seconds). This isn't a huge problem, however it becomes incredibly annoying to see these numbers always popping up on my HUD. I would turn off these messages in game, but I still find them useful.


My question; is there anything I can do in the game or with the throttle quadrant's profile settings to minimize or eliminate this minor issue?

Try in the setting menu, input devices,  to play with the noise filter cursor    

if you put it to 1  the joystick is very less sensitive  

my setting are 0.4

Hi, got the same "issue".

I already cleaned the potentiometers and even re-welded some connections, but it is still really sensitive.

I will try NNFFL-Carleo advise.

That was my problem with the quadrant, too. Since it is quite tricky to extract (hot glue), open and clean the potentiometers, I just opened the quadrant until I was able to achive free access to the potis. Took a little srewdriver, turned them 10 x to the left, 10 x to the right and re-assembled. Voila, that happend 5 month agon and until today they operate like being factory-fresh.
