I have a Saitek x52 and I put flaps and spoiler on an axis. The problem is that they won't go to their extremes so when I try to disengage the spoilers they will still be up a little bit. I messed around with deadzone settings and calibration to no avail. What does work is disabling that command in Prepar3d and setting it up via FSUIPC, which I have the latest registered version.
Simce you hav ethe Regsitered version of FSUIPC, then you are well equipted to solve this issue.
FSUIPC (registered) has Joystick Calibration. This might currently be un-calibrating your Joystick.
Your Joystick probably has a Calibration Program. This may also be un-calibrating your Joystick.
Your Joystick might also be Mechanically un-calibrated.
Correcting one Un-calibration, with another calibration elsewhere is going to get you into a mess.
With FSUIPC you ca see the Input from the Joystick, (before FSUIPC does any Calibration), and also then the FSUIPC processed calibrated output.
(1) Make sure the INPUT is going from ZERO to FULL.
If not, correct that with the Joystick manufacturers Calibration software (if possible).
(2) Only then look at the FSUIPC calibrated output, and make that output whatever you want... typically ZERO - FULL
(ie the same as the Input)
ie You can use FSUIP's Calibration Option, to check both calibrations.
It's actullay a lot easier to DO, than explain on a Forum ... !!!
