Accessing the Alpha Flight Controls Properties on Windows

Open your computer control panel. From there, follow this path:

Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Devices and Printers

On this window, you should see the Alpha Flight Controls under the Devices sub-menu. Right click on Alpha Flight Controls and select Game Controller Settings.

On this window, make sure Alpha Flight Controls is highlighted, then click on Properties.

This window represents your the pitch, roll, and all inputs from your yoke.

The Axes represents the pitch and roll.
The Buttons represents the switches on the switch panel and the buttons and switches on the handles.
The Point of View Hat represents the hat switch on the left handle.

Within this Test menu, you are able to see if the computer is actually reading your inputs and to see if your yoke is functioning normally. 
To calibrate your yoke for your computer, the Settings tab allows you to calibrate your yoke. We recommend you do so if you are having any issues with the yoke.
