  1. If you remove the spring on the pedals, (not remove the friction) with this option will have the most realistic possible control (Outside of a FFB pedals) Congratulations ED !!!
  2. Ok Rangoon, I've finally come to understand. Sorry I have diverted the topic. His statement that does not use springs has confused me. About the "bug" HUD completely unknown, but as already mentioned, is not a real function. I can only add that the way to reset the AP is compensating, (Force Trim release). If you use the method of "CENTRAL POSITION TRIMMER MODE" is practically impossible to accumulate errors, and this function should not be necessary. (Reset Trimm) Otherwise, the more reason if you are professional, although its setup lets fly perfectly the Ka-50, ok, but somehow always have a point of frustration because this not controlling the helicopter naturally, I hope can someday get a FFB cyclical, today is the best option. Greetings!
  3. Never. Never ever. This applies only to test and learn how the system works and how it affects the behavior of the helicopter. I auto quote. "That is, if you compensate when the attitude of the helicopter, DOES NOT MATCH, with the attitude memorized by the AFCS, you always will be a little scare." Or put another way; Whenever you go to change the attitude of the helicopter, you must "notify" to the AFCSsystem (Force Trim button pressing) of its intention. If you do NOT do that, you will have to "fight" with the AFCS, and if the pilot inputs are within 20% of the AFCS authority, the struggle is harder. If the maneuver induced by the pilot, is beyond 20% of the AFCS authority, it is equally important to compensate the beginning of this, for the same reason, although different mechanism, leaving 20% will also have a little surprise. If you are inside / outside the 20% of authority is irrelevant to the pilot, the transition is completely transparent to the pilot. There is NO reason to "learn" which is 21% beyond testing. Use of "Reset Trim" funtion is a concession to "joy of spring" users when do not dominate the use of Force Trim. Imagine a plane flying at cruising level, imagine putting that airplane in a landing configuration by pressing a button ... ... imagine the consequences. If you want to fly with a minimum of rigor the Ka-50 simulation, completely forget that option, is an aeronautical aberration. :doh: That's crazy. :doh: If you do NOT have a spring joy, Why you need reset the controls? You must enable FFB option in the simulator. Assuming your cyclic keep the position. For the pedals, you must use this MOD; (Only in the Ka-50, unnecessary in the Hip and Huey) http://forums.eagle.ru/showthread.php?t=40624 Saludos! po: I still pending, reread your post # 6 Greetings!
  4. The AP / AFCS in the Ka-50 has 3 functions. -Damping the pilot inputs. Always active. -Maintain (and memorize) the attitude of the helicopter when you release the button Trim Force. Herein is where most people get lost. Each time you use the Force Trim the AFCS memorizes the helicopter attitude and try to keep it within 20% of authority in the controls. That is, within that 20%, the AFCS is in control, though, pilot inputs also added. When you take the controls out of that 20% is exactly backwards. The pilot has full authority, but the AFCS try out the helo attitude towards memorize the last time you made up. If you use a joy spring, the system forces you to carry the cyclic to the center of this. In a maximum of 0.5 sec. If you do not this well, it will accumulate errors, and will spend much of the flight fighting an invisible ghost. AFCS. 0.5 sec seems very short ... No. For a mediocre musician 0.5 seconds is a long time, giving you time to play four notes, for a virtuoso musician 0.5 seconds is an eternity. If you have a joy without spring, BE ACTIVATED "FFB option" in the simulator. This frees you to bring joy to the center, but will have no physical information of the center of cyclic, and also get errors. In both cases, disable FD (Flight Director) switches OFF the function of "maintaining attitude", and can help, but the right thing is to understand how the system works. -The Last function of AP / AFCS is navigation and targeting, and is irrelevant to this post. I enclose a flight full of mistakes, but very illustrative of the use of Force Trim. Greetings! edit: Best rereading the first thread. I'll try to describe what I think he's going. You take off for stationary, with well compensated helicopter. OK. In this situation you can even drop your hand out of the cyclic. AFCS has control, even if small inputs by the pilot. From stationary (without compensating) gently push the cyclic (within 20%) and the helicopter starts to move forward. (0:33 in the video) Now there are two sources controlling the helicopter, the AFCS and the pilot. AFCS have in "memory" hover attitude, and the pilot is moving the cyclic forward, the helicopter receives the sum of both inputs. If at this time you press the Force Trim button, you cancel the entry of the AFCS abruptly, resulting in a movement / attitude, undesired. (0:46 in the video) This is independent of the control system (spring, not spring, FFB) and is simply a pilot error. If in the above example, you pushes the cyclic beyond 20% of authority of the AFCS, a smooth transition to the "subtraction" of the ratio controlled by the AFCS is produced, and will have smaller amount of unwanted movement when using the "Force Trim". That is, if you compensate when the attitude of the helicopter, DOES NOT MATCH, with the attitude memorized by the AFCS, you always will be a little scare. Beyond that, I assure you that the AP / AFCS behaves (do not know the degree of fidelity) as expected in a helicopter with SAS / ATT AFCS.
  5. No problem with the Force Trim, the AFCS, and the Auto Pilot in the Ka-50 DCSW. The problem is your joystick spring, and spring pedals, which requires it to operate the helicopter artificially. Also, get to know how the system works, and know "move" inside and outside the 20% authority. If you need to use the Reset-Trim in flight, you SHOULD NOT be flying :) You must have a FFB joystick and pedals without spring, of this form can control the Ka-50 in a natural manner, similar to how operates a real pilot.

  10. Thanks for listening ED. I hope that the numbers fit ... In my case the anger is with the KS project, I found it regrettable feeling cheated, but I consider valid pay $ 40 for Dora. What I want most is that the project to go ahead. Not know their numbers of your company, but I think they have a premium product that constantly degrade with constant offers and promotions. This confuses a lot customer, which I understand will have very different profiles, if this ends up looking like the video game market, we will have a short future. Greetings!
  11. I do not want to pay $ 20 for a map, or I give away a plane for which I paid, (since beta). Understand their business reasons, and I will continue to support ED, but as a consumer I am compelled to say that I feel cheated. For my part, between each other (?) Have mowed my trust in any KS project. Unfortunate, bad for everyone, developers and customers. I'd rather pay $ 60 for a product, as in the A-10C beta, and know what I pay. In my personal inventory, I paid $ 40 for Dora, and so happy. The road to get here has been, strange, weird, unique, special, theatrical? Well! Anyway, I have the Dora. I hopefully next buy it for the usual channel. I hope. Greetings!
  12. Well, I'm going to take a chance, I took more than a year with the card in a drawer ... With this I can start from scratch with the 1.28? Greetings!
  13. Good luck with the project JO & company. Greetings!
  14. Well, another advance. Reduce the spongy area in the center of the stick, I have to get this reduced the distancing between the magnet stick, and Hall sensor. This overrides the settings of the previous post, the sensitivity curve can be left at 0%, and can release the hand after the helicopter trimmer without losing its attitude. You have to practically disassemble the entire joystick, but it is not an overly complicated operation. I lost my images ImageShack, so I can not document graphically as disassemble the Grip. Basically you have to remove 6 screws and gently pry the two tabs at the base of the grip. You will need to disconnect the 3-wire cable that goes from the base. Once removed, the Grip, and open the base of the joystick you will see something like this: The magnet is in the lower part of the lever. To get there, first remove the plastic cover that holds the engine, remove the 5 screws. Carefully remove the cover without pulling any part of the wiring. Now comes the tricky part. We must dislodge engines, and turn to that seen longuitudinal in the attached image. The easy part is to remove the magnet and insert two washers. ;) Just need refitting all, with special attention to the wiring and the position of the engines. Greetings!
  15. morphological filtering active in CCC??? Greetings!
  16. Here are 5 ports. The capture is BS1.02, but I guess now is the same system. The problem is performance, extracting more than one port has an unacceptable penalty. Greetings!
  17. The correct procedure in 99% of cases is to release brakes. This way you can feel the attitude of the helicopter when the fuselage starts to relax the load on the landing gear, or skates. Greetings!
  18. Up easily to 4.7 / 4.8 GHz with liquid cooling, H100, and with the same setup up to 5.0 / 5.1 Ghz (24/7) with 4 cores de-activated, without forcing voltage. Greetings!
  19. Interesting initiative. But as discussed colleagues in helicopters, a system that does not return to the center is needed. FFB can be (ideally) or simply by friction. The good news is that this proposal already exists ... KomodoSims material: https://www.facebook.com/KomodoSimulations Greetings!
  20. These adjustments leave a central area very progressive. It may be good for a rookie, briefly. Or for those who come from FIXED WING. With an extended joysctick, as realistic, not using curl, or very little. The purpose of these adjustments is to release the hand after trimmer without the helicopter significantly change their attitude. With the change of distance between magnet / Hall Sensor I explain in the following thread, you can keep a curve <5% and change the value "Sensitivity" in the Logitech software. (Between 40/60%) Now comes the hard part. Explain adjustments and reason. These adjustments are based on the control of the FFB, which provides program AveragePilot. Without this program is not viable to simulate a ForceTrim device. Damper and friction effects in force feedback There are several factors to keep in mind about the G940. 1 - The grip is designed for a certain length on the lever. Increase the length increases movement in the grip more than desirable. 2 - The G940 has a mushy zone in the center. 3 - The G940 has an external area outside values, and also beyond the control of the FFB motors. I mean, you can physically get to that area, even a useless area. I marked the three zones in the previous image. The blue area corresponds to the spongy zone of G940, and I tried to coincide with the "area curve" in the simulator. The objective is that the movement in this area have little impact on the simulator. The green area is the major useful area is where the G940 should work most of the time. In the above image, the saturation adjustment cut out to 90%, is to limit the total travel of the grip. As I said extending the lever increases the grip travel beyond desirable. The red area is in the outer limits of G940, no values​​, no force FFB. I will focus my explanation based on two simulators, DCSW and X-Plane X, since it is a modification designed for helicopters, and beyond these simulators do not have anything that is minimally realistic. Basically you have two tools to adjust your G940 . The first is the sensitivity adjustment or progressivity in the G940 software. This setting is important because it also affects the resolution of the actuator FFB, especially around the spongy zone. The default is 50%. You can adjust between 40-60%. Smaller values ​​will give less accurate anchorage of FFB, and conversely higher values​​. The following screenshots show strength and sensitivity settings. The force is oversized, because the extension of the lever. The second is the adjustment of the sensitivity curve in the simulator. The purpose of this adjustment is to leave inoperative, the spongy zone of the joystick. I mean, that movement of the joystick in the spongy zone has the least possible impact on the simulator. My settings are between 15-20%. X-Plane yaw axe are ok betwen 50%, not like image: DCSW: The ultimate goal is to release the hands of your grip without the helicopter loses his attitude.
  21. An update with the measurements, and some image more in the first thread. The first version is that shown in the video. The second capture is a shorter version, I think is the ideal size. Greetings!
  22. I tried the 14.4 RC and have the same performance as the injection of DLLs from 13.9. I see them very well. The graph is a 290x at 4080 * 2160. Greetings!
  23. Basically it is an idea of a squad mate. Consists of a small sponge in place in the base to mitigate joy slack. Here is the original post, sorry, in Spanish. http://www.cruzdesanandres.com/foroviejo/viewtopic.php?f=17&t=9135 Greetings!
