Best throttles

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone 

 

i searched thru the topics and a few were kinda old 

 

i fly fsx dx10 

i have the pmdg737 777 and A2A p51 

 

i currently have two saitek throttle quads, they work ok however i hate how they spike and jiggle in game 

i'm sure there are better options out there, i'm looking to get recommends based on experience ect. i realize some are costly and i'm ok with that as long as they work 

 

" price is your friend for a day quality is your friend for life "

 

so shoot me some ideas, i would like them to be fairly versatle so i can configure my GA planes as well as the tubes 

 

thanks everyone

Can't believe no one has chimed in, the "spike and jiggle in game" is most likely attributed to dirty pots. There are good videos out there that show you how to clean them. 

 

I also have the PMDG NGX737 and 777 and I am having a tough time getting the second throttle quadrant to work as throttles with the 777 (really any aircraft) in FSUIPC4. The 2 levers to the left have a strange technical attribute I have yet to find a solution for. Most throttle sliders register -16xxx to 16xxx and 0 being 50% as does the right side lever on the second Throttle Quadrant does. The "non yoke" throttle quadrant (USB connection) however registers -16xxx to 0 then suddenly 16xxx at the last bit of travel. I have found Saitek's fix was the deletion of a folder in the registry that did not work. It seems many are complaining about this and seemingly just as many are not. I like the Saitek Throttle Quadrant and will more so when I solve my problems.

 

How did you get the Quadrant to work in the PMDG777?

You can filter some of the "jiggle" out using FSUIPC to do the calibration. I haven't gotten it perfect yet either though. I usually notice it when pulling back my prop rpm in the Carenado Baron.
