737 throttle

Recommended Posts

Guest EasyEd5102

I have noticed that the 737 NG throttle has definite steps (in percent of full power) as you advance the throttle from idle to full open. You would expect that the response would be relative to the movement that you applied, however this is not so.I found that in my case (I am using the Logitech Extreme 3D PRO joystick) that there are nine (9) steps from idle to full open.I find that when manually landing the 737 by using throttles to control the rate of climb or decent this action becomes difficult. As you move the throttle you may or may not get an increase or decrease in power if that movement has not put you into one of the next nine (9) steps. I find that you have to visually observe the throttle to determine if your movement has accomplished what you want.Does anyone know how to get a continuously variable quantity of response that is based on the exact amount of movement of the joystick throttle?Your help will be greatly appreciatedEd McComb

Ed,that is only an animation issue of the throttle levers. You shouldn't really look at your thrust levers to determine what thrust setting you have but on the engines gauges (that's what you also do in real life). You have a thrust setting indication there which is as precise as the real deal.Regards,Markus
