FSL A320X Question about Throttles

Recommended Posts

Hello,

I've been enjoying simulating failures in the A320. 

I have a question:

How can I retard a single throttle? Or can I... I have a single axis throttle controller (CH Pro Throttle) and I'm using FSUIPC. When I simulate an engine failure, I am directed to reduce engine X throttle to idle. I use the mouse to drag the throttle, but it simply bounced back to match the controller position.

Does anybody have a suggestion, short of not using my controller?

Thanks,

Engine commands will typically affect all engines unless you first select an engine by pressing E + engine number (1-4). To revert to controlling all engines, press E + all engine numbers in quick succession (E, 1, 2, and so on).

First, you need to set the A320 up as having two throttles in the MCDU Options page 3.  Otherwise the panel code will sync the throttles automatically regardless of the FSUIPC or sim throttle selection.

You can use the macro programing features in FSUIPC (see the advanced users manual) to program two throttle buttons to first toggle off the FSUIPC engine sync and then send either the E1 or E2 command to select the engine to be controlled with the throttle (the other can then be controlled independently with the mouse).  Another button or hotkey can be programmed for FSUIPC's "resume all engine control" function to resume synced throttle movement.

 If he's using v4 version, macros are still not supported by FSUIPC.

Thank you, gents.

This will set me on my way. I'll check back in when I find a solution.

Thanks Chock,

Yeah, E+1 or w/e disables the control. So, with a little practice, this will do the trick.
