Can anyone provide a photo of a TQ6 quadrant mounted to a desk with their accessory TQ6 desk mount?  Also, is anyone using a pair of TQ6's for dual engine props mounted to a desk?

It connects via a simple screw tight lock. It will attach to any desk. The TQ6 has 2 throttle, prop and mixture levers already. Have a look on YouTube. There are a few good videos and reviews of it. I love mine.

Found videos but they mostly show home cockpit arrangements, not desktop mounting.  Not all desks are equal.  Lesson previously learned. Mine has a bullnose edge, and on the underside there is a support strip (finished hardwood) running from side to side some 2.25 inches in from the outer edge of the bullnose.  So if the underside of the mount reaches in under the desk more than 2.25 inches then it will not fit for my application.  And I stress, the 2.25 in measurement is not  looking for the dimension of the bottom strip of the mount. Instead what is important is the reach.

One video I did find on packaging and unboxing shows the mount, but does not go through the process of mounting it.  No other video even showed the mount, and 100% of them were for the airliner model TQ-6.  I am looking at the general aviation version.

Anyone know if the rotary panel can work stand alone?  Without the separate module encasement?

It will work, but it would be sitting there not attached to anything and wouldn't look very good.  The cases that hold two modules are great.  I have 6 of them on my desk and they look good.

I can't see that mini rack for sale anywhere.  I wouldn't mind getting two but I don't want the whole stack.

Sadly,my TQ6 is sitting in a cupboard unused for a few years. The handles became very sloppy, so after cutting down an allen key, and tightening up the connectors, I decided to fit the newer throttle handles with the wired in reversers. They are so heavy that no matter how much I tighten them, they still fall down under their own weight. Not very practical. Have now got a Virtual Fly TQ6, much more accurate, and no sloppy movement. Anybody want a used GOFlight TQ6 ? 

Cheers

Hi Neil,

My TQ6 has been a complete disappointment. Over the years I had to replace their cheap plastic levers and 1/2 the board is no longer operative.

PM sent.

And over the years, I have been through 5 Complete sets of Saitek, and other throttles!  Point being, everything breaks and wears out and at least they are repairable unlike others.

I would drop cash within seconds on a good EFIS and MCP at this price, sadly, I have read too many reports about the crappy workmanship associated with these GoFlight modules, so sadly, I'm out.

Here is my 2 cents worth  ;) 

I love all my goflight modules: GF-MCP, GF-P8 (2), GF-T8, GF MCP-PRo, GF-46, GF-166 and GF-RP48.  They all work perfect and have never had an issue over the 10 years or so that I have owned them.  The one thing I don't like is their website and lack of a good forum.  But the hardware is top notch.  I don't own the GF-TQ6 though, so I can't comment there.

The only module I would want right now is the one they DON'T have showing.  The GF-LGTII is not there :(

I'm interested in the throttle, but need some advice from a current user(s).  Neither the Saitek quadrant or TPM that own seem to be very linear when using the throttle. 

The throttle operates on a curve such that at some point the engine rpm will jump a disproportionate amount making it impossible to maintain speeds on the Embraer that doesn't have auto throttle.

Does the GoFlight throttle exhibit the same issue, or is is truly linear?

I've tried using FSUIPC to deal with this, but with no luck.

Thanks,
Ernie

I have the Saitek quadrant. I've never noticed any jumping with it. Power change is smooth from 0 to 100%. 

Pull up the Windows calibration utility and see if there's jitter where the jump happens.
