CH Flightstick frequent calibration

Post by GaryDoug » Wed Apr 02, 2008 4:14 pm

I have a Compaq Pentium 3 with FS2002 and a CH Flightstick (a bit old) joystick. It worked for months just fine but now I have to re-calibrate it about every hour. It seens to lose all joystick setup information. It is first noticed by losing all capability ti turn right. Could someone get me started in the right direction to correct this problem? Thanks

I would try reinstalling the driver for it, or find an updated driver.

Try that, and let me know.

Thanks for the reply rd. The problem was in the controller hardware on the motherboard. After an hour or less, it would start to get very erratic. I could see the crosshairs bouncing all over the screen in the calibration window. Since this was a motherboard gameport controller and not replaceable, I bought a new USB joystick and now everything works fine.
