I have the Saitek pro flight yoke system and quadrant and am experiencing issues with my throttle quadrant all of a sardine! I installed FSX acceleration a few days ago and that is when the problem started. I have since un-installed and re-installed FSX only.
Basically I am having problems configuring my levers on the quadrant. For example, when I start up a free flight (Cessna 172) my engine is at 50% thrust whilst my lever on the quadrant is at the idle position. When I push the lever forward it goes to 100% thrust and when I pull it back to idle my engine is at 50% again. (forcing me to use the F1 key to put the engine into idle)
So the problem really is that I have only two settings on my quadrant whereas before the engine power would slowly increase or decrease as I moved my throttle lever up and down! The same goes for my flaps, with the lever in the zero position my flaps are up and as soon as I push the lever up it goes straight to full flaps.
Now I have tried configuring both these axis with FSUIPC but to no avail, having said that I have not completely wrapped my head around FSUIPC as yet.
If anyone has experienced this problem before your feedback/advice would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance
