DC-6 for P3Dv4 Question and Issues

Recommended Posts

2 hours ago, FSXtreme said:

This is how I have mine set and when I move my hardware throttles, I can see the RPM go up accordingly, but the VC throttle doesn't move and the RPM comes right back down right away.

Could it be the AFE causing me not to be able to control my throttles, and is there a setting in the options that I'm missing?

I have tried selecting "Abort" on the AFE panel, but it seems to have no effect on the throttles.

 

Thank you,

Bob

I've got my throttles working perfectly now.:biggrin:

I'm using the PFC Throttle Quadrant with four levers.

I set each to "Axis Throttle Set #" through P3Dv4 in "Axis Assignments", then go into the Joystick Calibration and make sure "Reset" is selected for each lever and no management is coming from these settings in FSUIPC. It's working beautifully.

I appreciate everybody's help.

 

Thank you,

Bob

I think you mixed something up. It should read:

I set each to "Throttle#"...


Happy flying!

Nope nothing is mixed up. Axis Throttle 1 Set etc. is correct.

Is it only on my DC6 or are the props moving scripted? They're always stopping with blade upwards. No position between.

Welcome to the forum. Full names - first and last - are required in your posts here.

As far as your question goes, I'm not sure I follow. The props stop however they end up stopping. If you look at the pictures on our Facebook page (with all the different liveries), you can see they stop all over the place.

Does anyone have some basic guidelines for engine management.  I should add that I see all the power charts in the POH, however, not yet ready for that level of detail/study.

No, what I'm using is "Axis Throttle Set 1"  through 4.  I couldn't get it to work with just "Throttle Set 1" through 4.

I think he's referring to

Axis Throttle1 Set and opposed to Axis Throttle Set 1.

The former is correct.

Yes, you are correct.  I was going by memory, which usually doesn't serve me well :happy:
