I have re-installed X-Plane 3 or 4 times and each time it will work the first time, but after that X-Plane doesn't recognize any controls at all.
I also tried unplugging and plugging in the controls and still to no avail.
I currently use the Logitech Pro Flight Yoke/Quadrant, and the Logitech Pro Flight Rudder Pedals.
I've uploaded my log to Pastebin over here.
I hope we can figure this out!
But, did you physically calibrate/install the units other than.... "Completely uninstalled the software and restarted- and controls were recognized."
My interpretation of your comment is that the units have not been installed and calibrated as yet within X-Plane.
Windows will always see the items but you "have to" install the items within the x-plane software not just plug them in.
Have a look at the following links at https://www.x-plane.com/kb/joystick-troubleshooting-x-plane-11/ and at https://www.x-plane.com/kb/my-joystick-or-yoke-isnt-working/
Hello, I have a similar issue with flight controller not working in X-Plane 11. I use a Interlink Elite, which looks like a RC Flight controller, but also works as a Standard Game controller.
I use it in FSX all the time and I was using it in X-Plane 11 up until a couple of weeks ago. Now the message comes up The controller is connected and windows and 3 other flight simulators see it and work with it just fine and X-plane USED to see it.
What would cause X-Plane to no longer work with this controller? There are no drivers to download as they are just standard Windows Drivers for this device and do not require anything special. I use the Steam Edition of X-Plane 11
The above mentioned videos have no bearing on the issue. They assume that X-Plane is seeing the connected USB Controller. X-plane 11 does not see any USB controller on my system. I should note that X-Plane 9 and X-Plane 10 both are also installed, work well with my desired controller, and X-Plane 11 did work up until a couple of weeks ago with the same exact controller.
So the problem I have is I cannot setup the controller in X-Plane again because it used to be, its because It is as if the controller is not even connected, Even though it is. I do not have the screen in the videos that I used to have that allowed me to configure the controller, I just have the screen that says No Flight controls found. There is no checking the joystick ail/elv/rud because it doesn't seem to exist in X-plane 11 (it is in X-Plane 10).
This is very frustrating that this controller that used to work just fine and I have logged over 30 hours with the controller, doesn't work anymore for this application.
I would suggest you lodge a "bug report" at the following link http://dev.x-plane.com/support/bugreport.html
