    Auto Throttle

    Does any one know if it is possible to get auto throttles to work without using PM?

    I am buying the simparts TQ and need to know if I install stepper motors or Servos and link them to my interface cards, is there a way of getting them to work with say PMDG or the FS737?

    What does every one recommend for the motors to use in a 737 throttle quadrant?

    Head over the to the Phidgets forum section here. There is some discussion of that topic there, if I am remembering correctly.

    best,

    Hi,
    I am using high torque Servos with the phidgets boards and reading info from the LDS767 package through Nico's FSCONV.

    Alan with his FS2Phidgets software makes this a breeze.

    Quite easy to setup and create with a little bit of research (and the easy tutorial from Phidgets)

    Cheers
    Chris
