T.M16000M throttle set up help please.

Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a T.M16000M joystick. I can set up everything fine when using either FSXSE and P3DV4.5. The problem I have is getting the throttle slider to work correctly. I can use the calibration procedures in either sim or use FSUIPC. The problems I have is I can advance the slider to 100% but when I bring the slider all the way back the engines only return to about 50% If I use the keyboard F1 the engines will come back to idle. 

Any ideas?

I have both the T.16000M joystick and the TWCS throttle (also from Thrustmaster) and normally use the slider on the T.16000M to apply the reversers on the engines. I don't find the slider on the T.16000M to be realistic enough to apply throttle, just because its range of action is too short. Try re-calibrating it within P3D (or FSX:SE) and if you're not successful I would recommend you to add the TWCS throttle to your setup.

Cheers, Ed

Thanks for that info Ed. I have tried to calibrate it in both sims.

If you are flying any of the PMDG jetliners, go for FSInt from rksoftware to bind your buttons to any PMDG switch/button/knob in an easy way.

No calibration function yet in the release that is available now.

Hi, Vineguy. I just got the same joystick 2 days ago. Did you go to the website and download the drivers? I have full range throttle, no issues. And the manual is on the site, too.

Hope this helps.

Hi Mike. Yes, I did download the latest driver and the manual came with the joystick in PDF form. I searched their website FAQ and couldn't find any help there. Like I said, it will go to full throttle but only retard them to about half way when moving the slider all the way back.
