Throttle not going all the way back to idle.

10 posts in this topic

Hi chaps. 


I use the PMDG with FSX Steam and my Saitek X52 throttle and my CH yoke. But something I've noticed in the recent 3 or 4 flights, when I power up to break away to commence taxi, and throttle back with the Saitek, it doesn't come all the way back on the sim. I know of a problem if my throttle on my yoke isn't all the way back it affects it due to conflict, but that's not a problem as I've disabled the throttle on my CH yoke and made it redundant. 

Has anyone any ideas on how to solve this? 

Regards
Ian Livesey

Not a common problem. First idea to mind is to make sure the throttle you are using is calibrated both ends (zero to whatever) of scale.  Second thing is I'm not sure what "all the way back" means, it implies that you are not returning to the same N1% value that you had before taxi but I'm not sure.  It helps to provide a complete picture since we are not looking over your shoulder.

I too see this occasionally. 

What I've found is that either unplugging my CH stuff or unplugging/switching off the power supply on my computer will foul up my controllers. Meaning, I have to recalibrate them...all three.

I don't know why this is the case, but it is.

is it only  with the PMDG? Try it with other aircrafts and if  pmdg is the only affected aircraft, at least you know that it's aircraft specific, in which case FSUIPC might be needed.

Sometimes if the sensitivity of the controller axis is not set to maximum it won't return all the way to zero with the controller, but will if you hit F1.  If this is the issue, the easy fix is to make sure the controller axis is set to maximum sensitivity within the simulator. Null zones are also best set to minimum. I was reminded of these recently while changing over to P3Dv4.

Just done a bit more indepth research and come across editing the fsx.cfg file with the line stick_sensitivity_mode=0 in the Controls. Anyone heard of this?

OK The thread can be closed now, I've managed to fix things using the tweak to the fsx.cfg file above and this video  

Thanks for your help guys. Can always count on you all :)

Blue skies!
