Yoke system crashing/restarting?

Yoke system crashing/restarting?
Received my yoke yesterday, however have been having issues where it crashes and restarts, mostly when I am in a takeoff climb. Have factory reset and re-calibrated without success.

Has anyone else had this issue? It's like you're pulling back and have the normal resistance and then all of a sudden it just gives way and restarts.

RE: Yoke system crashing/restarting?
Just a follow up on this, it appears that this does NOT happen when the steel case is removed entirely. I have also found that it does not appear to happen with the top front two case screws removed. When I removed the case, I noticed that the screws had been screwed in on an angle and this may have possibly been compressing against something (couldn't see what).

Hopefully it remains stable with these screws removed.

It would seem that the problem is still occurring even after removing these screws, but significantly less than before.

Anyone from Iris able to provide some assistance? Do I just have a dud?

What version of the yoke software are you running?

Hi MatM..
Contact Kyle for support. His phone number is +1 (888) 995-7050 ext 102
Leave a message with a time for him to call you back.
You will definitely hear from him.

Email also works but is slower.

RE: Yoke system crashing/restarting?
I experienced something like this and believe there were several contributing causes. Flashing to the latest 1.04 firmware helped. Also, after that found that connection to my PC via a powered (but overloaded) USB extension was contributing. I have plugged directly into the PC and am experiencing a dramatic improvement (no crashes yet). Just my experience. Your issue may have a different cause.

Another thing that may help some pilots is to set your yoke so it does not go to sleep. If you happen to be in autopilot for an extended time the yoke can fall asleep.
After shut down of sim you can put it into sleep mode.

How do you disable sleep mode?

Have a look at the manual available from website.
while in Aurduino Serial Monitor mode select Sleep__time out and set for 65000, this forces switching to sleep mode for 18 hours. Effectively disabling it.
Taken from manual, no practical experience.

RE: Yoke system crashing/restarting?
This might help instead
Caffeine Mode:
The command is now:
"standby_timeout 0"
standby_timeout deals with how long it takes for the yoke to turn its power supply off (previously called 'light sleep').
sleep_timeout deals with the time it takes to go from standby to sleep, which will require a control check to wake up.
