F-18, how to shut down engines?

Recommended Posts

As title says. I am not able to get the throttles to off position.

Tried to make a few keyboard "shortcuts" but no luck.

Anyone figured this out?

I found that by shutting off the Batt and Gen switches, engines turned off. No doubt this is not realistic RW SOP though.

In the real world aircraft, the engines are shut down by pulling the throttle levers full rear to a fuel cutoff position. Any simulator command that cuts fuel flow could be proxy.

IIRC  CTRL SHIFT F1  will do the trick when all else fails.

While in the idle position, left click on the throttle and then right-click at the same time..
