Throttle set up through FSUIPC


Recommended Posts

Hi Pete,

I want to set up my single saitek throttle to work through my registered FSUIPC rather than through FSX,

I tried to do this before but ran into problems where by throttle idle was at 40% and was unable to change this, so please can you walk me through the things I need to to do,

What do I do about throttle axis in FSX? are there any other items that I need to uncheck or cancel or delete in FSX settings

I have attached my flight sim build spec

Kind Regards

I suspect that is the usual Saitek installation error which afflicts a lot of folks, and needs a Registry fix. Check the Saitek support forum.

Otherwise it could simply be that you are using the assignments in FSUIPC which provide a reverse zone, which before calibration whould certainly place the idle at around 40-50% (though by proper calibration you could set that where you wished). If you want to use it as a simple forward thrust only lever then assign your single throttle lever only to "axis throttle set" and calibrate on page 1 of the calibration tab.

I had the same problem and for me it was exactly this: I used "throttle set" instead of the correct "axis throttle set".

Thank you!
