Customer Question
I just bought a...

I just bought a Saitek yoke and I went through the set up and everything seemed ok until I used my simulator. Once off the ground and I go to make a left turn it was fine. But when I turned right it did not turn until moved the yoke more than the left turn. I tried to make adjustment but no results. Any suggestions?

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand and model of your product?

It;s the saitek pro flight

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far?

I went into setting up the yoke, rudder and centering. I press the section that say use this as the center. I also tried to see if the aileron trim had any effect on it.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Electronics Expert to know before I connect you?

Do I need to be at the simulator? If so I'll have to get to it later tomorrow.

You will need to recalibrate the yoke.

Let me know the model number of your Saitek yoke if you need further instruction on how to do this.

Sorry to say but there is no model number on it.
Electronics Technician: Pete, Electronic Engineer replied 7 months ago

Is there a model number on the packaging?

Or can you attach a photo of the box or the yoke?
