Default Cougar Antenna Elevation?

Hello. I have noticed that I can't make the Antenna elevation function properly in the F-16. When I try to alter antenna elevation I have to return the ANT ELEV knob in the neutral position in order to stop the antenna in the desired position.

I have tried also slider option from Axis Adjustment to no avail. Any help would be much appreciated...

On my case, I ended up using a Hat to control the Radar elevation .. this way I just press the button and hold until the elevation is where I want .. on minute 1:19 of this video you can see me testing the Hotas Elevation Hat:

Thank you for your reply. I found another thread in the F-16 section and this is a known issue. I will see what I will use until they fix it, because I don't have an available hat right now.

Set a curve in axis shaping of about 30 for the antenna elevation. This will slow down how fast it moves the antenna up and down. Still you only need to move out of center a small amount to move it up and down. Immediately put it back to center when you get the altitude you're looking for. It's not ideal and it's not how it really functions but it works for now.

Yeap, I will try your suggestion. Hope they fix it soon. Thank you for your time!

For the time being I just tuned the axis so that it is less sensitive and gave it a large deadzone


Here's the bug report thread by the way

Did you lower the Y saturation? I think I'll try that tomorrow.
