Default Virtual RC controller Calibration

Hi i dont uderstand the steps to calibrate my Helios the VRC USB hub

Step 1: Leave Handle centre and press button on the controller

does this means Dont move the wheel and pull full throttle and release?

Step 2: Move Handle in complete circle and press button on the controller

does this Mean Turn wheel full lock left and right then full thottle and release?

Step 3: Leave Handle centre and press button on the controller

does this Means Dont move the wheel and pull full throttle and release?

Step 4: Move the Z-axis all the way up and then all the way down and press button on the controller
what does that mean??? z-axis??

and does "button on controller" refer to the throttle?

any help appreciated??

Not sure where you got them steps from?

If your using the USB adapter then its quite straight forward.

Fire up the game, select usb2 adapter have everything on your radio centred etc, you can use the calibrate button to check all your axis work properly and then just race. I didnt follow any steps like you listed the last time I did it anyway.

But the advice i will give you is you'll have better look asking in the right place, the VRC forum or virtualrcchat.info can be quite good. i'm not sure how many VRC users hang around this place but the above two place are all 100% vrc users so seems like a better idea to get help there.

The steps he got are directly from Windows' Game Controller Properties tab(I know because I have the VRC pistol-grip controller, had to go through this to calibrate it for any games). In any games aside from VRC, you'd need to calibrate it in Windows or else it won't work at all. Unfortunately, though, there seems to be some serious limits as far as which games support it well enough to use(works ok for TOCA Race Driver 3, but I can't get it work at ALL in Need For Speed Carbon, I suspect that it's hit & miss for most games)....
