Bypassing the Throttles

Recommended Posts

Can someone please tell me whether or not it is possible to "disable" the trottle quadrant when the autopilot is engaged and to enable it when autopilot is taken off , from FSUIPC

I assume you mean the auto-throttle, used by the autopilot for vertical and speed modes?

FS and most add-on autothrottles should already be doing that automatically -- though I think, to be more accurate, they should automatically disable the autothrottle if the thrittles are manually moved very much.

FSUIPC does offer the option to disable the throttle connection to FS, though, via offset 310A. There are bits for each throttle separately as well as one for the 'generic' single-throttle-for-all. You'd have to program it appropriately of course. Programs like Project Magenta use this facility. You could actually program it with a few lines in a Lua plug-in too.
