Slow Throttle..difficult manual landings

Recommended Posts

Guest TonyDAVIES

Hi GuysI wonder if some kind soul can help me with this problem. I have a CH Flightyoke which is calibrated perfectly for The PMDG 737 however I find the response from moving the throttles to the engines spooling up or down very slow compared to real life 737ng operations I have seen.The throttle gauges move smoothley with the throttle eg 40% but there must be a 3 second delay on the engines before they reach the throttle setting. This makes it very difficult getting the speed and thrust settings steady on a long visual approach.I hope its not another calibration problem or is there some thing somewhere I can change to make the engines more responsive.Thanks in AdvanceTony

I'm not quite sure you have a problem. Engine responses in a jet engine are not instantaneous as a general rule. It takes a few seconds for the engine to spool up or down based on its input commands. But it should at least start to respond to the throttle command pretty quickly. They are not as responsive as reciprocating engines with propellors.Dan
