    SAITEK THROTTLE CLUSTER

    I am testing a Saitek throttle cluster, and notice that the throttle lever travel when right to the top, does not show full throttle in the sim or idle when the lever is down?
    When tested with an ordinary joystick. its throttle lever provides full (normal) throttle.

    If I am stuck with this, I might have to provide f1 and f4 buttons as required to complete the movements!!!! Bloody stupid!!

    It's not satisfactory to fly with 90% thrust as maximum. I notice that the prop and mix levers are the same.

    I am wondering if there is a tweak somewhere in the system that can adjust this?

    I have bought two of these throttle quadrants, and they are both the same!!

    Any help would be most appreciated.

    Tony,
    Make sure you have sensitivity set to max in joystick calibration for the throttles. Also that you have calibrated
    the throttles.
    I recollect i had the same problem when i was using these throttles. It was easily fixed.
