X Box Series X with Thrustmaster Hotas ONE Sensitivity Settings DO NOT STAY SAVED

Well, since this ais an officially supported device by MSFS, they should take care of the matter in a future fix for the program. How do we make them aware best ?


Count me in. My sensitivity settings are also not saved. Regardless if using default- or a duplicated profile for the HOTAS.


Same for me, very frustrating.


Something I have noticed is if I don’t quit MSFS and just shut down my console when I restart the sensitivity setting are still the same as I had set them.

Yes count me in one this one. Sensitivity for other devices is saved but not for Hotas. I had hoped that yesterdays update would fix it but nooo.
New on Flight Sim and loving it.

Same for me… The Hotas debacle is a mess and they need to sort it. Supported they said, yeah right!
Many threads and Youtube videos about this. Not good enough.

Me too. Wipes out settings upon new session.

I hadn’t noticed this before, but checked it out last night. The same thing is happening to me as well.

I have been looking at quite a few YouTube videos to get up to speed on MSFS and it’s many features.

Huddison goes into detail about how he sets up the sensitivity settings and in the process, does a very clear take-down of Thrustmaster/Microsoft for not saving the setting and for not providing a timely fix.
(CTL-Alt-Delete anyone?

I am experiencing the same issue where sensitivities are not retained.

The settings remain as long as you keep running the sim but as was pointed out in the Huddison video above, the new settings for Reactivity and Extremity Dead Zone are neither implemented nor saved for the Thrustmaster. I played with Reactivity using the xbox controller on the elevator. At very low settings it’s clear that the elevator responds slowly. WIth the Thrustmaster, there is no difference in action with changes in Reactivity. We need at least the basic sensitivity controls to make good use of, what appears to be, the only real flight control options for xbox users.

Bought the HOTAS One and haven’t unboxed it yet cuz I saw this issue. Looking forward to hearing it’s resolved.

Same for me. Sensitivity doesn’t save.

In the same boat. This is very frustrating. None of my sensitivities save. I am trying to do the training videos while moving the Thrustmaster HOTAS One stick like millimeters in order to not yank the plane up down left or right. How is this bug not resolved yet?


Hi everyone, I am new to this forum and been following the Tmaster Hotax issue with sensitivity settings, on Xbox x, not saving. My flight stick is still within the return window and I have a question. Is there a recommended HOTAS that actually works on flightsim 2020 and the control settings are saved properly? I apologize if this question has been asked before. Thanks.

Same hear, are the devs aware of this issue?

That’s probably do to the quick resume feature.

due not do :slight_smile:

It appears for now that this is the only option other than the almost unusable XBOX Control box. Hopefully more will be available but we’re stuck for now. You can set the sensitivity of the controls and that sticks until you turn off the console or switch to another game. Once you know what you like, it only takes a minute or so to set them up again.
