Bravo Throttle - Axis Jitter


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I just wanted to see if anybody else who just received their BTQs have the same issues.
Unfortunately i have seen this now with two units in the course of two weeks (one purchased locally and one received yesterday directly from Aerosoft).
The later one has it across multiple axis levers.


What happens is that some of my bravo throttle axis jitter when doing fine movements around the center position (50% of thrust).
This is especially noticeable on the middle axis levers and visible in the cockpit itself which is quite annoying when you see the thrust levers jitter in the cockpit.

This is how it looks in Spad.Next for example:


What I have tried is:
- Both (1) Calibrate via Windows Device manager and (2) reset it again
- Remove from Device Manager, Restart and plug in again
- Use different USB ports, including a powered USB hub
- Tried on my laptop too, there i can see the same jitter when looking under "Game Controller" --> Properties
None of the above solved my problems.

Anybody else seen anything like this / found a solution? Or is it strictly hardware related (potentiometers)?
I opened a ticket via support but wanted to see if anybody had the same issues from the latest batch of BTQs.

Thank you all for your feedback!

Hi Andrej,

This could be due to a faulty potentiometer or any electrical or mechanical issue.

Altought this may have already happen before, it is a well constructed and reliable device.
But like for every products, you have those Monday units...

Support has authorized the return for test and exchange already.


Thank you.

I agree, these must have been Monday units then. The Alpha Yoke which I already have for a while is an incredible product.
Having said that and despite the issues with the BTQ, the Aerosoft support team has been nothing but amazing (Thanks Cedric!) - straight forward, no "template answers" and very friendly.
Within a day everything has been taken care of.
