"HELI-KIT" Controls not working with Arma 3 Helicopters
Need More Info, NormalPublic


Heli-kit controls in helicopters not working correctly.

Cyclic works as it should, collective works as it should. Twist grip throttle on collective is producing the tail rotor pedal movements and the pedals i have for my Heli-Kit do nothing.

all control surface movement is being picked up in the config menu but no axis labeled , i can not assign any axes manually to anything.


Operating System
Windows 10
Steps To Reproduce

Connect heli kit and try config

Additional Information

Can a Scheme be made for Heli-Kit please

Talked with the designers and they don't know of this controller. Could you please send us screenshots of the option menu in Arma 3 as well as settings of the controller from Windows? We want to confirm how many Axis you have.

I am having the same problem with the same helicopter controls. I've attached screenshots of the Arma 3 setup screen for Heli-Kit and the Microsoft screens. I annotated the axes with what controls they are associated with.

Just to be sure - all the axes are correctly recognized by the game. But when you double click on some action to open the "Configure Action" dialog and move a particular axis to its full extent and back there's no input registered and action doesn't get bound to the axis?

Yes, that's correct. And, there are no options to the right of the configure action box that relate to the controller. The only way to map the actions to the axes is to use the presets. But, all the presets for helicopter controls use Z-Rotate for the pedals. I believe Heli-Kit differs in that it uses Y-Rotate for the pedals. Everything works appropriately except for the pedals. The cyclic and collective inputs are correct when I use the Flight Link helicopter presets.

Thanks for the help!
