Force feedback joystick constantly vibrating when flying helicopter
New, WishlistPublic


Using a Logitech G940, when starting the engines of a helicopter, the stick starts vibrating. The vibration strength increases exponentially with engine RPM, which makes me think this might be an attempt at a feature rather than a bug. It should probably be removed to avoid unnecessary wear on the joystick.

You can tune down or up these effects with Logitech Profiler.
Did it for my G940 as the default effects were too strong making my desk rattle.

The suggestions from Logitech engineers is for Force Feedback settings:
Overall Effects Strength and Damber Effect Strength is set over 100% (102-104% example) so you get them to react correctly.
