X-Plane 11.30 is on the works for some time and it brings some new great features. One of them is the joystick response curve settings screen.

X-Plane 11.30 - joystick response curve settings screen

This screen will allow you to adjust, in a very friendly and precise way, how your joystick’s inputs should be translated by X-Plane to the aircraft you are using.

By allowing you to adjust the response curve, you can set your joystick so that it gets less sensitive near the center and more towards the outer portion of its movement, or the opposite. This way you can compensate for some issues you might have like an old potmeter or even a nasty stiff spring that doesn’t allow you to do micro-movements and, instead, you need to actually pull the stick a bit more.

It’s a welcome addition for our settings toolbox for sure.
