Support overload. We are currently seeing 65% more demand for support then we normally see. We can only assume this is because more people are at home due to the corona crises. Our complete support staff is online and they are working flat out, but it will take some days before we can scale up resources. Please be patient.

A330 engine not responding to throttle

Moving the throttle does not affect the engine on my end. Even the CLB, FLX, and TOGA detents. It stays at idle. The only way I can get the engine to respond is with reverse thrust. I am using buttons assigned to the default throttle up/down command of P3D.

Did you set the Thrust Levers in the Configurator?

 

 

I left the FADEC settings in the configurator at 1(default). But I do not use a physical axis for my throttles. Just buttons mapped to throttle up/down.

I'm sorry my friend, but having a Thrust Lever Axis is required for this product.

Got it, Ill try later at home with sim setup.

 

But please consider this as a request to support atleast the throttle controls for buttons. For us simming on the go with gamepads.

It is working fine with the A320 pro family and CRJ pro. Thanks!

Unfortunately for a unknown reason using Simstarter cause the complete Throttle thing not working as intended. For the moment, when flying the A330, start P3D directly.

Or select a default aircraft an switch to A330 when the situation is fully loaded.

First flight,  plane went to Afloor for reasons I can't figure out.   It was on the climb and throttle was in climb position with autopilot on.  My throttles don't work and the plane is just descending.

Please don’t hijack other topics. Your issue is a complete other one.

While simstarter may also present problems, I believe that loading states doen not work properly. I have set Take off as the default state and the engines simply do not respond once the plane is loaded in. If I reload the state to taxi, they work

Ok,  but I think if I created another one somebody would tell me to use the one already out there with throttles not working.

A workaround for the Simstarter problem seems to be to deactivate P3D in the Run ConfigSet, then run Simstarter normally (thus without starting P3D but everything else), and then start P3D manually.

Exiting the flight,   I hope this isn't going to be an issue

Does selecting the takeoffstate manually a second time work?

Strange, using Simstarter too, no issue with Throttle at all but I am using a Saitek Throttel. As I understand this issue only happens if no Throttle axis is assigned(?)

 

What I recognize is, if I assigne axis with FSUIPC, my Airbus Throttles are also not working at all, but no idea if this helps you guys :(

About the throttle. The aircraft cannot be taken out of ALPHA FLOOR mode. Do not turn off the traction machine. Not at all. Chokes can be moved to any position, useless.

Насчет дроссельной заслонки. Самолет не может быть выведен из режима Альфа-этажа. Не выключайте тяговую машину. Нисколько. Дроссели могут быть перемещены в любое положение, бесполезно.

I do believe so. I would have to test it again to make sure. I have noticed that other states do not load in properly as well. Will need to do more flights to see how/if these issues persist.

 

I did a flight loading in turn around state and everything worked fine.

 

The plane is nice and handles well when this issue does not arise.

The strange thing is that the throttle levers in the virtual cockpit actually move adequately, but the engines do not respond and stay in idle even with the throttle levers at TOGA. That is when Simstarter starts P3D. When I start P3D manually, the engines do respond fine.

I have had same throttle issue with Simstarter NG, but had already worked out that it didn't happen when starting P3D directly. I will try the workaround posted above.
