Throttle axis reverses iself randomly

I use a Saitek X-55 Throttle.

If I set it to work correctly in the Control Options > Power Management > Throttle, ticking the Reverse Axis as required.

Then next time I start the simulator I may find that the throttle seems to have reversed itself and I have to go into the options and tick or un-tick the Reverse Axis to get it to work properly.

The throttle has done sterling service in many sims: FSX, ArmA and DCS. It is only in FS20 that I have this problem.

Anyone else have a problem like this? sPK

Do you configure it from windows…?
Or do you configure it from the simulator…?

@ToniGsxr600 I configure it in the simulator. I don’t use the Saitek configuration software, just the drivers.

Okay ok
So I understand that the configuration saves it well…?
The wgs folder saves the profiles, follow this guide and see if the one on your device puts read-only in properties.


@ToniGsxr600 I’m on the Steam edition and I can’t find the Microsoft.FlightSimulator_8wekyb3d8bbwe folder in C:\Users\YourUser\AppData or its sub-folders though there are plenty of Microsoft.xxxxx__8wekyb3d8bbwe folders in the Local\Packages folder :thinking:

Try searching on this computer for the wgs folder, where the profiles of the configured devices are saved.
