Tilt/Recline Joystick is backwards

Postby hobie1dog » 16 May 2018, 00:32

On my Quickie 636, the operation of the joystick Is opposite of how it should intuitively work. If you want to tilt back, you have to push the joystick forward. Pulling back on the joystick lowers you back down. When I questioned the two people who "setup" the chair about it, they said that's the way it has always been. Can it be changed in the programming?

You can change it to whatever you want in the programming, depending on your personal preference or physical ability.

On both my Pilot+ Project chair and my MK6i controller on my Arrow Storm I have it programmed to push forward for both tilt back and tilt forward. It switches direction each time I push it forward. You can set it to any joystick direction combination you want. Forward, back, left or right.

I'll have to round up a proper cable, find the software to use on a PC, and then correct it. So frustrating not having a dealer worth a sh;t. The salesman had the personality of a retarded snail.
