NGX and Idle thrust on touchdown

Recommended Posts



I currently made "the Step" from FS9, to FSX. (yes it took a while). I'm currently setting things up and getting ready to fly.


My main aircraft will be the NGX, with CH Yoke and Throttle Quad, FSUIPC.




After hours of tweaking, and not getting the reverse thrust to work with the "below detent" position of the throttles, I decided to assign reverse thrust to a separate lever. That works too, -when on the ground.



Obviously, the throttle must be idle in order to apply reverse thrust, however, for some reason the throttle of the NGX "creeps" up to about 42% N1, whenever I try to put it in idle before, during, and just after landing. It takes a good deal of braking before the throttles reacts normally, and REALLY goes idle, enabling reverse thrust to be applied. And by the time that occurs, the whole point of reverse thrust is gone, as would the aircraft be on a wet and short runway.



In FSUIPC, I have disabled the reverser option in my throttles page, and calibrated them to be "idle" a bit above the physical stop of the lever, just to be sure. 


But still I get this creeping throttle when airborn and landing.



Any help is much appreciated!
