You are getting ~90% of maximum values - 1024 (10 bits), not bad.

Throttle inverted dont matter, just invert in game controls. Theoretically swapping the Gnd and +5v on pot invert the pot reading - DON'T do this with contactless sensor or will fry then!!! Rest know if the firmware of this specific joystick allow this...

This joystick Cobra M5 probable is rev. 3, the "Chinese" version - with striped down USB controller (relative to previous versions), rudder and throttle axis use potentiometer, and X, Y contacless sensor.

Better dont try "fix" inside or can messed more.

Ok, thanks a lot for the info. The main issue with throttle - that I forgot to mention in previous post - is that it's starts taking effect only at when then the lever has moved about 25 % up. But I reckon I better buy a real throttle anyway.

You calibrate you joy/throttle using Windows Game Controllers applet?

If yes try reset to "device defaults" and use the manufacturer software if available or DView, DXTweak.

Default Force Feedback 2 Issue

I hope someone can help me... Before flight, my joystick is calibrated to the center of the X and Y axis (Verified with dxtweak 2). When I click on fly now, force feedback enables and the joystick pulls right resulting in a constant right roll. When I pull left to correct, roll stops in the center position.


Looking at dxtweak on my second screen, I can confirm that the position info is correct in terms of RAW value with respect to X and Y which indicates to me that there is an issue with the force feedback model.


The only aircraft that behave correctly is the Gazelle(SA342}, F15 and Mig-29 (FC3).


The Blackshark and A10-C also rolls right.


I have asked ED support who asked me for a log file and said everything appears to be fine. Thereafter they lost interest to help me... Any ideas or workarounds?
