How to program "arm auto throttle" in a PMDG B-747


 Share

Recommended Posts

I am trying above by doing the following using a Saitek Yoke.

Open Add-Ons,then FSUIPC.

In the opening FSUIPC window I press "Button,Switches", then press button on

yoke what I did.Then I select FSControl and Project Magenta and the

option "AutoThrottleOn" Then pressing OK.

However nothing happens in the B-747 and I wonder why.

Is it at all possible ?

Certain other futures work using the same procedure.

Did anybody try what I do ? And how was it achieved ?

Thank you for yopur help

I suspect that the PMDG aircraft has its own control or keystroke for operating the A/T. You don't say whether this is the FS9 or FSX version, but please check the User Contributions subforum for the answers. As far as I can see, for the FSX version, the A/T Arm action can be controlled by a mouse macro assignment.

You are right,the PMDG-747 has it's own keyboard commands.By the way I use FSX.

What I try to achieve is to disconnect the Autopilot with a yoke ( Saitek ) button.

So far I was able to program a letter ( through the PMDG-keyboard command ) to

disconnect the Autopilot.That works.

Is there a way to use FSUIPC ? To somehow combine the PMDG command with

FSUIPC ?

Thank you
