    Throttle problems

    Hi All,
    I purchased a throttle Quadrant from Revolution Sim Products. I have not been able to get the throttle to work properly with the SIOC file they sent me for compatability for Sim Avionics software. The throttle does strange and eratic things. During the climb out phase the throttles seem to hunt for a position to stop at. (moving back and forth very fast). When the aircraft reaches the cruise phase of flight The throttles on the plane are at about 90%NI but the throttle handles are commanded to the idle position. The speed brake lever does not move and the speed brake ground/flight lock does not operate. The flaps do not move to their correct position and the handle has to be sitting out of the position gate. I have tried contacting Revolution Sim Products now known as CAT III and they fail to reply to the support questions through their contact us page. I have sent several emails and no response from them. It seems there is a complete lack of after sales support from this company. If anyone is able to provide me with some help i would be eternally grateful.

    Kind Regards
    Trevor.

    Re: Throttle problems

    Hello Trevor. Are you sure the motor assignments in SIOC are correct for each motor and USB port? That would be the first check to do. When you have SIOC opened, unplug/plug a USB to see which value is assigned to each device and write them down then make sure your sioc.ini file has the right configuration for each device. Then in SIOC you can check the values as you operate each control and send them values to check the operation. I think your main problem is SIOC assignments to each port. I can share my ssi file if you want to show you variables and respective code for each variable.

    Hi Rob,
    That would be great if you could send me your ssi file so i can see where i may have gone wrong.
    Kind Regards

    Re: Throttle problems

    So just to make sure:

    1. Verify all your USB connections from the Throttle appear in SIOC as devices (should be 2 devices)
    2. Make sure these devices are configured properly in sioc.ini with USBDCmotor and USBAnalogic (preferably not to use IDX 0)
    3. Make sure all variables are loaded properly in your SIOC ssi
    4. Use IOCP Console in SIOC to verify that when you move throttle parts the variables change values accordingly.

    You can also use the calibration program provided from RSP if you need to.

    The RSP Throttle documentation can be found here:

    http://www.revolution-simproducts.co...MANUAL_V33.pdf

    The throttle variables in ssi are in the 2000 series:

    Re: Throttle problems

    Hi Rob,
    I have been away with work for a few weeks and only just got home. I have not had a chance to do anything with my sim yet but will hope to have a bit of free time in the next few days to try out your script. Thank you so much for sending it, and i am anxious to see if it fixes my problems.

    Kindest regards
    Trevor.
