Knobster Accuracy Skipping

#1 Post by AzPangesti » Mon Apr 26, 2021 9:12 pm

I am building a DIY knobster and having a bit of an issue with its accuracy.
Not really a dealbreaker, but i am looking for some tips to improve it.

I feel that sometimes there is a step missing when I turn it one click.
E.g an alphabet on G540... I swear I turn it slowly for one click on the encoder, but it went from A to C .. skipping the B.
I had to go back and forth until I got B.
It can be rather annoying when you want to make fast selection.

Is there any tips and trick on how to improve that?

Hello,

I recently bought a knobster and I am also experience accuracy problems. It is hard to control.

Anything I can do to find out where the problem is?

Thanks.

You’ll have to be more specific. Describe in detail what “hard to control” is in this context.

Sure I can do that.

Let say that I am trying to make a flight plan on a G1000 it does not allow me to go A-B it goes some time to G another times to D when I am trying to select an airport ID.
Similar behavior when a list of choices is presented. It skip some times 4 or 6 items and does not allow to scroll one by one. Selecting a frequency on the radios I am experiencing something similar with the numbers it does not increase nor decrease in sequence.
I hope that gives a better idea. If not please tell me what else I could describe to give a better picture.
Thank you.

It sounds like you either don’t have the latest plugin installed or perhaps you have a communication issue. The latest plugin can be found on the sim innovations wiki and also on the wiki are troubleshooting steps for connection problems. If you try them both and you still have no joy then try here again. Be sure to post back the results either way.

Indeed sounds like you're using an ancient plugin. Please download the latest version from our wiki.
Important rule: update Air Manager == update plugin
