Hi, all.

I am having trouble with both of my rudder pedals.

I have both Thrustmaster RCS and Elite pedals and Thrustmaster Cougar stick and throttle. I'm running Windows 10

When I plug the pedals into the Thrustmaster Cougar Stick and then try to calibrate the following happens:

Initially the calibration is zeroed. As soon as I touch the pedals to move them the center indicator goes to 100% right. Moving the right pedal achieves nothing but moving the left pedal moves the indicator towards the center and then past it as the pedal goes through its full motion.

This problem occurs with both pedals.

Can anyone provide an explanation and a fix for this?

Thank you.

Well, looks like no answer here. Is anyone still using the Cougar? Can anyone point me at the place where I can get some answers to my problem?

Thanks.

Are you sure the pots are still good? Put a meter on them and check the resistance

If it's happening with both sets of pedals I doubt very much if it is anything to do with them. It's more likely something that is common to both.

Can you plug the pedals directly in to the PC ? if so, try that. If they work then the problem is within the Cougar somewhere.

If you're confident about such things you could open the cougar up and check all the connections. It does sound to me like an intermittent connection issue.

Hope this helps,

Andy

Thanks everyone. It looks like there may be an issue with the game port on my stick. Not sure. I will get a gameport to USB converter for these pedals.
