Virturalcol DASH 8 Throttle Problem

Recommended Posts

I have the Virtualcol DASH 8 for FSX and am having a problem with the throttles not working in the middle of a flight.  I have follow the procedure tn their documentation about the limiter during taxi and make sure it is reset before taking off. Howerver everything works fine for a while and suddenly the throttles stop working althegher. bot joystick and keyboard. Has anyone else had this problem? If so did you find a solution.  I have submitted it to Virturalcol support and so far they not been able to help.

I had the same issue a few years ago; during mid flight the propellers just stopped working.  I just gave up.  If you find a solution, can u let us know?  Bugs were pretty common in earlier Virtucol offerings; thankfully, they’re making a Dash 8 V2

Is it only happening with this aircraft and only the throttles?  Any other problems with joystick movement or other keyboard commands?

V2 hasn’t been released yet; it’s due out after their Beechcraft model. They keep getting better and better; so, I have some hopes for their next model.

Haven't had this issue but hopefully version 2 will be a major improvement as well as fix your problem.

I think Virtualcol is feeling some heat with Carenado's recent entry into the large turboprop market so they're trying to improve their existing planes to compete.

I love competition.
