Has anyone experienced a problem with taxi speeds?As soon as I release the hand brake, and with the throttle off (ie press F1), the aircraft moves forward and builds up speed.I can only control the speed by braking but as soon as I release the brakes it builds up speed again.I have installed the programme a number of times but I always get the same problem.Perhaps I am overlooking something?Any help anyone?John Cattell

Push the four green knobs on the console between the pilot's seats to limit engine speed for taxi. Don't forget to pop them back out for takeoff.Also doublecheck that your throttles are actually at idle to eliminate controller issues. Put your mouse over the throttle with tooltips active and see what it says.Best Regards, Donald T. :-waveFLYing? It's cool. Trillions of birds and insects can't be wrong.

>Push the four green knobs on the console between the pilot's>seats to limit engine speed for taxi. Don't forget to pop them>back out for takeoff.The four low speed ground idle buttons may be pushed in to reduce engine RPM to approximately 72% anytime the throttles are in the range between 9 and 30 degrees. Moving the throttle out of this range will automatically disable the low speed ground idle buttons.If you taxi into takeoff postion with the low speed ground idle buttons engaged, they will automatically disengage when you apply take off power (you don't need to "pop" them back up before takeoff they will do it on there own). :)

Unfortunately it did not work.With the 4 green buttons pushed in and all 4 throttles showing 0% on the tool tips the aircraft just moves forward and is at 36 KIAS in no time at all.I also tried using 11%, 9% and 4% throttle but the problem is still there and the aircraft speeds up to 30 KIAS.Any other thoughts on this matter would be much appreciated.John Cattell
