Saitek Throttle Quadrent throttle levers arent eual on 2 eninge setup


Recommended Posts

Hi

When I use my Saiek throttle quadrant for more than 1 engine they dont match. There's 1/2 inch difference between the two throttles when the values match. And they don't go out of idle until they hit the 50 mark on the quadrant this really only happens when I use my LDS. In FSUIPC the idle settings in the calibration tab are where they should be.

thanks Lee

All joystick axes differ -- but not normally all the way along the axis. If it is 1/2 inch different for the whole movement you've not calibrated correctly. If the gap varies, you can sync them using the sync facilities in FSUIPC -- that allows you to set up to 16 points of matching, which interpolation between. In practice you usually find you only needs 3 or 4 such points.

You should note, in any case, that in real aircraft the throttle levers are rarely in line for the same thrust on each engine. Also, if your "problem" only occurs with the one aircraft maybe it is more something to do with how that one has been implemented?

And they don't go out of idle until they hit the 50 mark on the quadrant this really only happens when I use my LDS.

You may have the wrong settings for the LDS then. Perhaps you need to select the "No Reverse Zone" (NRZ) option, or even UseAxisControlsForNRZ=No (look it up in the Advanced User's guide).

In FSUIPC the idle settings in the calibration tab are where they should be.

That seems to disagree with your statement that they differ by 1/2 inch.

Regards

Pete
