Stray keypresses kill right engine

Recommended Posts

Im having trouble when using Squawkbox where I will attempt to type in the squawkbox chat window, not realising it doesnt have the focus. This results in stray keypresses going into FS. This keeps causing my right engine to disconnect from my joystick. Strangely, after this has happened, the A/P Auto-throttle can still control power, but my joystick throttle from them on forward only controls the left engine. It ruined a landing on me last night, and Im sick and tired of it... so I finally got around to posting here.Surely this must happen to others, and im not alone. Does anyone know what key is causing this? A cure?Thanks

At a guess I would suspect 'E'.To re-sync the throttles E+1,2,3,4 but it does not work for everyone.If you have a paid for version of FSUIPC there is an option to set a key to re-sync the throttles. This was added, I think, to help people like me who cannot re-sync with the standard E+1,2,3,4.HTH

Yeah, I was gonna post back here, I figured out it is the 'e' key.Thanks for the response! 'e+1+2' fixed it! (thats e then 1 then 2, not 'e+1' then 'e+2') Thanks a ton!

Glad it wokrs for you Brad :-)Ever since FS2k I have never got any combination of 'E' & numbers to work, glad Pete included a single key resync.
