    Sensitive rudder issues, it's now holed up with a box of tissues and the film Beaches

    Hi Chaps,
    I'm looking for advise on setting sensetivity on some Thrustmaster T-Flight rudder pedals.
    I'm using them successfully in Box at 100% sensitivity setting, it gives me a reasonable travel and no fits or starts.
    however i've tried them at 0%, 50%, and 100% in clod and they're just massively too sensitive?
    the slightest movement and i'm thrashing like a prize marlin.

    any idea's or tips? I've had a forum search and there seems to be a fair few who have sets.

    i'm particularly having issues in the 109, the minute i move the pedal she kicks like a mule, my aim is bad enough already
    Thanks

    Set the sensitivity at 1, and increase the center deadzone.

    Have you already tried the Target Software from Thrustmaster ?

    I`ve recently downloaded the Target Software, and I am very happy with it. It gives you the possibility to adjust the settings of your flight stick, throttle and pedals much more accurate than in CLOD. The Software can be downloaded from the Thrustmaster Website.

    https://support.thrustmaster.com/de/...t16000mfcs-de/

    On the Website is also a manual available, where the configuration and the function of the Software is described. It`s also possible to create different profiles for different flight sims.

    Cheers

    Twin

    Re: Sensitive rudder issues, it's now holed up with a box of tissues and the film Bea

    I have them too. ( bought them 2 years ago as part of a all-inclusive set composed of Joystick-Throttle-Pedals )

    The big problem about them is not the sensibility that you can set, IMHO, but the rails on which they are mounted and how they work ( or rather very jerkily ) rendering small and precise movements almost impossible with them ( compared to what you can get using the joystick of the same brand ).

    I've tried everything ( Buying the optional switch/selector, greasing the rails in different ways and using different professional lubrificants, using them with and without shoes, dismounting the spring to re-center them, loosen the screws of the pedals/rail guides, etc ) but nothing has ever been even remotely close to mine preferences or expectations or, at least, to something effective in combat. Currently I use them only as brakes ( left-right ), using the joystick for the rudder control instead ( Thrustmaster T.16000M FCS ).

    Speaking of flight sims ( and about CLoD in particular ) and based on my current experience with them in the last 2 years, I think they are good only for 3 purposes:

    1- To rest your feet while flying

    2- As a light gymn stepper when not flying

    3- To fill the trash bin close to your PC

    Re: Sensitive rudder issues, it's now holed up with a box of tissues and the film Bea

    Cheers chaps,
    The target software I tried once...Once.
    i wasn't a fan, though I may look at it again just to be sure, my stick i've switched from the 16000 to the VKB Gladiator II which I thoroughly love to bits.
    But the known rail issues for the Throttle and the pedals I am aware of, I've actually picked up some Nyogel online and do plan to re-grease all the rails on both devices, it's supposed to help a lot, i have added elastic bands to the spring on the pedals too to stiffen them a little, that has helped tbh but I thinkt he nyogel may help a bit more.

    I'll certainly try the centre deadzone thing too, see what that does

    as an entry level set the thrustmaster stuff is good, but a virpil throttle (or warthog I guess) and a set of crosswing pedals would be lovely, though my wife would utterly skin me alive if i bought them now, especially since i've only just upgraded my pc

    You can tell her that you have bought on Amazon, and for her only, a wonderful cookware set.
    Once the package containg the pedals will arrive at your home you will tell her that they have sent to you the wrong thing ( simulating, in the meanwhile, an astonished face, as much as possible ) for some unknown reasons and that the package can't be returned

    I also have these pedals, and they do not work very well by the system of the rails but much worse not having any. I use them with the program JoystickCurves https://xedocproject.com/joystickcurves.html
