    Aligning AB detent (How to)

    I thought I'd create a separate thread so it doesn't get lost among other subjects.


    I found this on the Winwing Discord channel as a pinned message by a user called Arianvp.....many thanks to you.


    You will need to run Simappro to set it up and activate. Once you activate you can close it as the detent values get written to the device. You also need multiple entries if you fly more than one aircraft. When you change aircraft you will have to open Simappro and change activations.


    IMPORTANT - Ensure you calibrate the throttle and the afterburner prior to doing this



    1. Move throttle until AB deploys - in game
    2. In Simappro write down the value of RX and RY (They should be pretty close to the same)
    3. Calculate 1-(Rx / 65535) .....you can use Ry if you like
    4. Click "Set Afterburner Ratio"
    5. "Add" the aircraft, eg F-18 or F-16 (call them what you like) and set the percentage to the number from 3.
    6. Hit "Activate"
    7. Enjoy. Arianvp required 82% whereas I required 78%

    Hi mate, very useful, thanks, but reading that, I am confused about exactly what is happening in points 3 & 5?

    In 3, you divide the RX value by 65535 and then subtract this from 1.....Yes? What does " you can use RY if you like" mean ? That you can use either value as they are likely to be very similar?

    In 5, "set the percentage to the number from 3" .....what does this mean? The number you generated subtracting from 1 in point 3?

    Sorry for the questions, I have been wanting to get this properly set up on mine for ages, but am not clear in my head from the description.....

      No probs...hope it's a bit clearer for you.

        Yes thanks, done it and set at 76%....which is absolutely right on the detent handily......where did your end up? As we are matching the in game AB to the throttle, not moving the in game AB to match the detent....

          Forgive me for the confusion:

          My Rx Axis at afterburner lighting: 11296.

          I subtracted 11296 from 65535 which equals 54239. Using https://www.calculator.net/percent-calculator.html 54239 is 82.763% of 65535. Should I round that out to 83%?

            So I divide 11296 by 65535, which equals 0.17236591134. Subtract this from 1 (11296) and the result is 11295.8276341. Where from this value is my percentage?
            1 - 0.1724 (rounded) = 0.8276, as a percentage that’s 82.76%, round that up to 83% and there you go

              Try it on 82% jump into game and check. If you enter A/B tad early then set it to 83

                  Follow up to this thread, I notice when I enter 82% in the Winwing App for AB Ratio, when I'm in DCS I can move the throttle a good 3-4mm before the in game throttle moves at all. Is this correct? When I have it set to the default AB ratio of 75%, it moves immediately.
