question: 4 engines and only 2 throttles

Recommended Posts

I'm struggling with this problem. My Saitek has only 2 throttles. I fly mainly the B747-8 and the a319. I was hoping that PMDG would offer the option to reduce the throttle control to 1 or 2, but I didn't find that option.

I tried controlling via FSUIPC and it works for the b747-8 but not for the airbus. 

How are you solving this problem?

I too have two separate axis for my throttle but I only assigned one of them to the throttle axis without any number this way I can control all engines.

Using a registered version of FSUIPC you can assign lever 1 to throttles 1 and 2, and lever 2 to throttles 3 and 4.

Thanks for the advice. So, changing from a 4 engine to a 2 engine aircraft means changing the throttle setup each time.

No, FSUIPC is a very powerful and flexible utility that supports separate aircraft-specific configurations for different aircraft, and automatic detection/selection of the same.

FSUIPC has the ability to be aircraft specific.  I have a different set up for each aircraft, i.e. B744, B737, B777.

+1

I am so greatful for all the hardware that FSUIPC can handle. Many more than my skills. This has proven to be the weakness 😏

Sometimes when my USB ports gets upset because W10 properly forgets something that was attached to a specific USB port it can be a nightmare or at least an hour of recon.

FSUIPC is the way in the above matter for sure

Top 3 seller all years i have being in sim,  noticed on simmarket

Never in the field of flight simming have so many owed so much to just one man for that essential piece of software. There really is no going back once your jaw has dropped for the first time at the power within.
