Throttle Help!

Recommended Posts

Hello All ! :P

My problem is that when I select any aircraft the throttles are in full power. I have uninstalled and reinstalled the joystick to see if this can resolve the problem but I see that didnt help. I have FSUIPC 3.50 and Registered Version. My Joystick its SW

I also went to the Joystick tab in FSUIPC and its hard to set it to 16380 (For Idle) as the the number increase and decrease continuosly

Sincerely

Sounds like the throttle axis is set up incorrectly. Before doing anything in FS or FSUIPC you need to go to Windows "Game Controllers" (in the Control Panel) and calibrate all the axes correctly.

Then, in FS, go to Options-Controls-Sensitivities and make sure the sliders for "sensitivity" are all far right (max) and the ones for null zone are far left (zero).

If an axis seems to have the reverse effect (i.e. max throttle when pulled back, min when pushed right forward, then see about checking the Reverse option in FS's Options-Controls-Assignments.

Also, in the Assignments makes sure you don't have any other devices which FS has assigned -- maybe joysticks you also have connected, or used to have. Check the dropdown list of devises and deallocate anything assigned to any device you don't use.

Don't bother to even try calibrating anything in FSUIPC until you have it working basically in FS.

I also went to the Joystick tab in FSUIPC and its hard to set it to 16380 (For Idle)

16380 is actually roughly the normal (default) value for max thrust. Most joysticks should give a negative number when the throttle is pulled right back. It sounds like you definitely need the reverse option checked -- there's one in FS as well as in FSUIPC. Only use one, but since you want to get it all working WITHOUT FSUIPC first, best to do that in FS.

Hi again Pete. I've done what u said but I still with the problem :cry:

One thing when I go to OPTIONS------->Controls-----> Sensitivities, in Joystick type I chose my SideWinder and clicked OK but when I return still with the othe type of joy :x

Also I attached an image what the problem could be. In the pic its all green wich mean full power when my joystick its in IDLE. As soon I move or touch the joystick return to the Idle position, I click OK but when I want to check again, the throtle its again at full, doesnt save the changes !

Looks like your joystick is faulty then. You'll need to get it fixed or replaced.

Pete
