I have just purchased Black shark via steam, installed no problem, game runs fine but the throttle lever on my Saitek ST290 pro doesnt seem to be working. I have gone into the options and manually changed the throttle axis using the throttle lever on the stick... Which it recognises. So I go back to the game and it still doesnt work. Cyclic works as do the buttons but not the throttle lever.

All drivers are up to date.

Any ideas?

P.s, I have also calibrated the stick in windows before starting BS

Keep in mind a helicopter has both a throttle and a collective axis. For the Black Shark, it's best to control the throttle just using the PageUp/Down key commands and map your joystick "throttle" axis to the collective.

Try to assign the collective instead of the throttle. .. you normally don't touch the throttle at all in a helicopter with a RPM governor during normal flight.

So here comes my "standard Ka-50 newbie reply" :


First download Bigfoots interactive training missions
>>> KA-50 Black Shark 2 Training missions
( you will need this too :Temporary fix for 1.2.0 audio message bug]


Read also besides the manual this:
-DCS: Black Shark...Technical, Simplified
-Coaxial Rotor Aerodynamics
-Trimming the Ka-50 Black Shark <<<!!!! very important to understand this fully!
-Part 1 - Autopilot <<<this too!
-Part 2 - Autopilot


And when you still have time , read this too:
A Stick and Rudder Man's Guide to DCS: Black Shark

Here is a useful tweak if you using real rudders:
How to unchain the rudder from trim - solution

Things you want to have some day too:
