Hi

 

I got the TM Throttle quadrant today and trying to set up the throttle's I did engine one ok but engine two does not work when trying to edit the controls via P3D. I also set back to defaults but the left throttle still controls that engine one.

Never mind did not have the TCA selected haha

 

Also what control settings do i need to change for the engine switches to work?

 

EDIT - All sorted found a guide online.

Hi -

I have just updated prep3d and Aerosoft a330 to the latest versions - I have spent a bit of time sorting thru the thrustmaster TCA add ons - and generally have most of it working. I am still struggling with the rudder trim settings. i have used the A3xx configurator too. 

 

 

This recent post by Mathijis Kok explains it all very well:

 

 To correctly implement those switches/knobs/handles please assign following buttons in the "Key Assignments" menu of P3D:

 

switch on game controller                EVENT                ASSIGNMENT            REPEAT slider        ON RELEASE                       -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

AUTO BKR HI                            "Hotas generic key (B5)"        BUTTON 26            full left        -
RUD TRIM knob in left position         "Hotas generic key (B6)"        BUTTON 18            middle           -
RUD TRIM knob in right position        "Hotas generic key (B7)"        BUTTON 19            middle           -
RUD TRIM knob in center position       "Hotas generic key (B8)"        BUTTON 18            -                YES
RUD TRIM knob in center position       "Hotas generic key (B8)"        BUTTON 19            -                YES
RUD TRIM RESET button                  "Hotas generic key (B9)"        BUTTON 17            full left        -
RUD TRIM RESET button                  "Hotas generic key (B9)"        BUTTON 17            -                YES

 

 

Where I am having problems is with prep3d having only 1 x "hotas generic key (B8)" and 1 x "hotas generic (B9)" position - to map the switch to and the return to neutral position- I cant seem to duplicate the (B8) position or the hotas generic (B9) position.  What i would have expected to see to make it work would have been this:

 

RUD TRIM knob in center position       "Hotas generic key (B8)"        BUTTON 18            -                YES
RUD TRIM knob in center position       "Hotas generic key (B9)"        BUTTON 19            -                YES
RUD TRIM RESET button                  "Hotas generic key (C0)"        BUTTON 17            full left        -
RUD TRIM RESET button                  "Hotas generic key (C1)"        BUTTON 17            -                YES

 

So I am not sure when I am trying to map the switch if I am turning it the wrong way or if there is some other step i am missing to get the duplicate positions to map the switch returning to neutral. 

 

Any help would be great

 

Thanks

Evening all. 

 

I'm having issues with the TCA quadrant. I need some help please. P3D4.5. Aerosoft A319/320/321 latest version. Latest 1.69 TCA drivers etc

 

1. I can't get the IDLE detents and reverse to work. I have got CLB/FLX/TOGA spot on but I only get IDLE when at full reverse. 

 

2. When I select full spoilers I note that the rudder trim is activated. This isn't assigned on the quadrant so I don't know how that is happening. 

 

Thanks very much.
