Saitek X45 Rudder Problems

Post by BaiterONE » Tue Dec 05, 2006 3:15 pm

Hi

I know it is quite a bit dated now but I am quite fond of the stick and have programmed a profile that suits me really fine.

The problem is that the rudder has failed - it gets huge inputs randomly. When I am flying on autopilot this is not a problem but taxiing and manual takeoffs and approaches have become a problem, pulling the aircraft to one side and then the other with no easy way to compensate.

I know the simple solution - buy another. I am looking for an even 'simpler' solution - either to fix the rudder itself or to get a throttle unit on its own second-hand.

Any ideas?

Try replacing the driver for it. Either the OE or a newer version. This usually takes care of their problems.

Hi ,maybe you could use your Num Pad "O" and "Enter" buttons on your keyboard to steer with your rudder
