    6 engines

    is it possible to control 6 engines using independent throttle handles on flight sim X?

    My understanding is that it has options for up to 4, but I may be mistaken.

    As long as your flight model supports it then, if you can build the hardware for it, then you can do it. It will require assigining two extra pots.

    Kinda off topic but I always fantasized about building a B-52 cockpit. Course that would be a little easier than a six engine aircraft since at least with the B-52's eight engines you can just double up the throttles into the four engines supported by the sim. The problem with that though is you would bankrupt yourself in just the gauges! 4 dial gauges per engine, multiplied by 8 = 32 gauges just to monitor the engines! Maybe when I win a small jackpot...

    I'm just building an all around sim with adaptable parts and I really like the Antonov 225 so i was going to make a TQ for it but I think I will just use a general throttle for it.
