"Starter Cut-out" is called immediately after requesting engine start

Recommended Posts


I recently bought and installed a CH Products Eclipse Yoke and a Logitech G Saitek PRO Flight Throttle Quadrant. I disabled the throttle/prop/mixture controls on the yoke so I could use the ones on the Saitek.

Ever since installing this new hardware, whenever I call for engine start in the NGX using FS2Crew, the engine start procedure begins and the copilot immediately calls out "starter cut-out", instead of waiting for the starter to actually cut-out. I'm trying to figure out why this happens, and what hardware change could possibly be prompting it. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.

From the FAQs:


Question: During engine start, the FO says "STARTER CUTOUT" way too soon and starts his after engine start procedure before I even started the engines.

Answer: You have a button or hardware lever assigned to the FS "MIXTURE CONTROL" command/event.  Delete that.  FS2Crew reads the position of MIXTURE CONTROL to determine the position of the Start Levers.


It sounds like you still have something connected to the Mixture Control event.  Double check your hardware.
