Four engines, two throttles

Can't see an option on the joystick calibration.

There is a specific option for this on the 3rd calibration page. From the FSUIPC User guide, page 44:


If you have twin throttle levers and you’d like to control left wing engines and right wing engines separately on both 2 and 4-engined places, then make sure both throttles are operating correctly with twin planes then go to the  third page of the Joystick controls in FSUIPC, the one showing 4 throttles. Calibrate throttles 1 and 2 then check the option “Map 1->12, 2->34”. This will do the job. The mapping only occurs when a 4-engined aircraft is loaded. This facility also applies to the mixture and propeller pitch levers.

Alternatively, you can assign an axis to up to 4 controls, so you can just assign one lever to engine 1 & 2 throttle control, and the other lever to the controls for engines 3 & 4.,
