GoFlight GF-TQ6 Throttle Quadrant


Recommended Posts

I have the GoFlight GF-TQ6 throttle quadrant. Currently I am mainly flying the PMDG B737NG aircraft. The throttles and reversers work OK. The spoiler lever operates the spoilers but it wont ARM them. However the FLAPS will not extend or retract incrementaly, they eith go to full down or retract to Flaps 15. I have tried many times to set them up using teh FSUPIC set up page, but without success. So now I am back with the F5-F6-F7-F8 keys.

Any suggestions?

You should most certainly be able to find a position on the lever movement which arms them. Don't test this on the ground, get airborne first.

Why not try using the latest FSUIPC facilities for actually calibrating an ARM position? You can make that quite wide, so it is always easy to find.

Yes, use the latest FSUIPC (3.65) and follow the very detailed instructions provided in the documentation specifically for setting flaps detente positions.

Thank you. Do I have to turn off the control assignments in MSFS?

Only if you are using FSUIPC's Axis assignments. You don't need to go that far just to assign and calibrate flaps in FSUIPC. Just assign your flaps lever in FS, make sure it responds (sensitivity slider max, null zone slider min), then use the Joystick Calibration page in FSUIPC.

If you use the Axis assignments in FSUIPC you have to be careful to make sure FS is not also trying to assign the same axes. The safest way is really to do everything in FSUIPC then -- buttons and all axes -- and turn joysticks off altogether in FS. Otherwise it seems that sometimes FS can automatically assign axes it sees in a later session.

Regards,

Pete
