VKB Gunfighter Mk2 lock up

Hi,

 

Anyone else getting a lock-ups?

 

Flying along nicely then the joystick will suddenly go full right forward or full right aft input and not respond. If I disconnect the cable from the joystick base and re-connect, then it comes back to life. I'm using the orange box that came with the Mk2 base, but I also have a black box that came with my rudder T-pedals, it's worth a shot I suppose. 

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks

Sounds like a poor connection, either grip to base or inside the base. What lights are on the Black Box when this happens?

 

I've switched over to the blackbox mk2, but I believe all 4 lights were on the orange box, with the BUS light maybe being red IIRC.

Swapping Black Boxes won't help, you'll have to find the connection issue. I'd suggest first to take the grip off, inspect the pins on it's bottom to see if they're all at the same level, wipe the 3 contact pads on the base stem with a cloth and alcohol and mount back your grip, pressing on it gently while tightening the fastener so it would make good contact. Recalibrate afterwards.
