GoFlight TQ6 throttle quadrant spoilers

Recommended Posts

Using the GoFlight drivers for my TQ6 doesn't give me the facility to arm the spoilers.

An lever, any axis, assigned to spoilers will have a position, somewhere very near fully retracted, which will arm the spoilers. It's a positon on the movement of the spoiler arm -- play with the FS graphic and you'll see what I mean.

However, do NOT test this on the ground -- FS will let to arm the spoiler okay but it will then immediately deploy them fully because of the ground situation. Take the aircraft into the sky then find the "arm" position and mark it.

Is there a way to have an arm facility if I drive the spoiler lever using FSUIPC ?

No more so than any other calibration. I have considered having a sort-of centre area which could be calibrated for this, but it is a lot of work and on the whole I really don't think it is necessary. The simple axis position method does work -- provided you have some feedback so you can see when it is armed.
