Wico Airbus Throttles


Recommended Posts

Does anyone have a concrete solution on how to configure a Saitek Throttle Quandrant so that the throttles will work with FSUIPC with the Wilco airbuses?

I don't think there's any difference in use or principle between Saitek throttles or any other throttles. What specific Saitek-ness are you concerned about?

I think with any Wilco Airbus you have to either assign throttles in FS, or assign in FSUIPC only to the FS controls, not "direct to calibration", because it needs to see the normal FS controls in order to operate its thrust mode selection. If also calibrating in FSUIPC you probably need to select the "NRZ" ("No Reverse Zone" option), and also the "UseAxisControlsForNRZ=Yes" parameter in the appropriate [JoystickCalibration] section. As noted in the History document for FSUIPC, that option was specifically added way back in January 2010 for the Wilco A320.

Hi Pete,

Thanks for the quick answer. Did not think about doing that as all my other aircraft are set to direct to calibration. I will give this a shot.

Thanks for your help!

Don't forget that you probably also need to select the "NRZ" ("No Reverse Zone" option), and also the "UseAxisControlsForNRZ=Yes" parameter in the appropriate [JoystickCalibration] section.

Also, you can make this change specific to that aircraft.
