[CHPRO Yoke] Separate throttles per engine


Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I am using the CH Products Yoke USB which has three levers in total. One is a Throttle, the other two are Prop lever and Mixture.

Now I'm having a question: Is it possible to use the Throttle and Prop Lever for the Engines and the Mixture lever for the Spoilers ? I have tried a few configurations, but it never seemed to work. I consulted the manual as well. On Page 3, Engine 2, 3 and 4 always say "Axis copied from Thr1". Seems like it's not possible to use e.g. the Mixture lever as Throttle, no ?

Thanks in advance,

Max

Yes, of course. You can assign them as you like.

This is in FSUIPC? Why not simply assign them as you want in FS?

If page 3 shows that throttle 1 is mapped to all the others, that is only because on page 1 you have selected the option to map the single generic throttle so. Uncheck that option!

Then go to FS and assign the axes to the separate throttles.

Seems like it's not possible to use e.g. the Mixture lever as Throttle, no ?

You can assign axes as you like. In FS select Options-Settings-Assignments. The "manual" you should be reading is Microsoft's one for FS (or more likely the Help).

There are axis assignment facilities in the latest interim version of FSUIPC, available here, but for such simple assignment FS is fine. Use it.

Regards,

Pete

Hello Pete !

I am so sorry :oops: I didn't know so far, that the FS has a multiple throttle function modeled as default...

I will try it... Thanks.

EDIT: Works fine ! A few weeks ago I still flew with a simple MS Side Winder and didn't have the opportunity to use multiple throttles etc.
