The spoiler/wind brake on my 737[b] was working correctly. NOW, it only shows fully re-tracted OR fully extended. The numbers in FSUIPC are -16283 OR +16283. Nothing in between. I had to re-solder the connections, any idea what I did wrong. The slide POT has two terminals on the left end and one terminal on the right end.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
THANKS!
Malcolm

Who makes the throttle?

Need much more info here.

You also need to assign the Null Zone for the "Speedbrake Armed" That is the middle settings in FSUIPC.

Throttle by Throttletek. The problem with setting the center (which I have done before in FSUIPC) is that there IS NO number movement sequentially from - to +. The POT just jumps from negative 16383 to positive 16383.

Wrong pot
Faulty pot
Wrong connections

Use the Windows Game Controller to see the range of the pot. If it jumps like you described it is likely defective.

Calibrate and check.
