PFC Throttles


Recommended Posts

I have an older set of PFC flight controls that use a com. port, not the USB type. I have just started flying the Level D 767 in FS9, and I have two problems. First, when using the PFC flight controls the autothrottles will not work, if I turn of the controls the A/T work fine. Second, the only way to disengage the autopilot is with the master autopilot control on the GOFLIGHT MCP PRO, the yoke button does not work. I will check with the techs at PFC on Monday, but if anyone knows a work around it would be helpfull.

Thank you,

Charlie

That's because LevelD 's autothrottle is not implemented using the FS A/T. The only way around that would be to disable the throttle in the PFC driver and assign in FSUIPC instead, to the normal FS axis controls.

Second, the only way to disengage the autopilot is with the master autopilot control on the GOFLIGHT MCP PRO, the yoke button does not work.

The yoke button should work if "Z" works on the keyboard, because basically that's all it does. However, you can reassign it in FSUIPC to suit specific aircraft if you wish.

Thanks Pete, I dont know how easy it will be to get into the PFC drivers.

Sorry, what do you mean? The PFC driver provides a menu for you in FS. select it, find the calibration page with the throttles on and disable them by unchecking them. don't you have the PFC DLL user guide?
