Saitek Pro Flight Yoke System Throttle Problem

Recommended Posts

I can advance the thrust lever to roughly 15% and everything's fine. But as soon as I advance it just a little bit further the aircraft suddenly applies full thrust as if I had moved it all the way to the stop. When I advance it even more everything is fine again and the thrust is set according to the position of the thrust lever (which is then just above 25%).

I of course get into huge trouble during landing when I want to adjust the thrust lever but the engines suddenly accelerate like mad.

If you refer to the aforementioned problem, that's already fixed. But thanks anyway!

I had the same problem, but my unit was 5 years old so I replaced it with a new one. However, I and maybe others who have or will run into this issue might benefit if you could share your fix with us.

 

@Spook: Thanks for the vid. I had to slow it down to half speed just to begin to get an idea of what was being done. For sure I could get the throttle unit disassembled, but 100% certain I'd never get it back to working condition. :smile:

 

Thanks.

I'd really like to share the fix with you but the problem is that, don't ask me why, the problem seems to have fixed itself. I did not attempt to solve the problem but did two flights since I posted about the problem. On both occasions, the problem did not appear.
