Default T50CM Throttle is awesomeness

Very impressed with the new CM throttle that arrived on Friday. I'm still busy programming it, but I will write a full review in a week or so, once I've had a chance to give it some air time.

So far, it's

In the forms here a user stated some problems with the throttle adding like 10% to a value can you confirm this problem? There is another forum post about it

Do you have a link to that post? I'm happy to have a check how it is on the CM v3 - or does it apply to all analogue inputs?

I'll have a check later, anyway.

Yeah, I don't really see an issue. I just tested the throttle handles and the analogue PoV stick on the throttle. All carefully calibrated with the VPC software.

In DCS the PoV stick is pretty much perfect - I can see zero difference between movement of the ministick and the axis indication in the controls panel - nor any excess movement either way - it looks 100% perfect.

With the handles, the only thing I can see that is even slightly amiss is that there is a very slight movement of the handle (each one) before it registers input. Can't imagine this would be an issue, as it's a tiny movement at the start of travel (none at the end).

The two rotary knobs seem accurate as well.

Hope this is what you are after - if not, tell me exactly what you'd like testing or please post a link to the thread you are referring to.

Yeah, the review will have to be delayed a little - I've not had much time to use the HOTAS as yet, as I've been so busy making the new profiles.

Only another 25 to do before I've got all my DCS aircraft covered!

It's a real challenging throttle to learn, especially (the stick is easier to learn) because there are just so many inputs to get your head - and fingers - around.

I still intend to do this review - but I'm going to do it on Reddit and/or YouTube, so I can cover its use in other products without being deleted. I'm no expert and I have a new channel so lost my subscribers from the previous Johnny Dioxin channel - just the one so far - but I don't care about that, if people want to watch, they will, and if not, no problem. Never been keen on being a "YouTuber" anyway - just do it for fun as the mood takes me, and I think it's been ruined by Google.

Out of curiosity, why do I need to calibrate the throttle before use? I pre-ordered one last week but am wondering what the calibration will do?

Cheers
