FSX Brakes not Holding with Logitec/Saitek X56 HOTAS

Hi there,

 

I'm hoping the knowledgeable folks on here can help me out with an annoying problem that I'm having with my newly purchased HOTAS.

 

I can't help but think there is something incredibly simple that I've not thought of to try and resolve this so I've asked on the Logitech support and thought I would try here as well.

 

I have set the trigger on the flight stick as the brake. To a point, this works absolutely fine. The trouble I am having is that when I hold the trigger.... the brakes don't hold, they just flicker on for the briefest of moments. With previous joysticks, such as the Thrustmaster, the trigger worked like a momentary switch where if I held it.... the brakes would remain held.

 

I have had a look in the setup for the trigger in the software for the joystick but nothing is jumping out as obvious to me. I have the following options:

 

Latched

 

Unprogrammed

Fall Back

Button

 

Each of the latter 3 options can be paired with latched. Out of curiosity I tried all 3 with latched checked and unchecked and it had no impact on the operation of the brakes.

 

On the keyboard, the period key "." is set for the brakes. If I hold that down, the brakes are held on until I let go. I'm just looking for a similar operation from the trigger button.

 

Does anyone have any ideas? I'm wondering if setting the trigger up as the period key would be the easiest way to do it?

Is the joystick trigger, in the control settings, set with a sliding bar maxed out to the right? The slider button sets for repeat action of button. Edited by mrzippy

Still thinking about a new flightsim only computer!  ✈️

Apologies, I should have added that. I've tried both the repeat at max and at min. In both states the period key works as expected, the trigger does not.

 

I've gotten around the issue for now by mapping the trigger to the period key but I cant help but want to find a more elegant solution.
