TCA throttle #1 does not give over 30% N1


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have set up my TCA throttle and everything works fine except the #1 throttle. Both idle at 21%. When I advance the throttles, #2 go's to full power, but #1 go's to about 30% and no higher. I have done all the calibrations that are posted on the forums. This is the only issue with my set up.

Hi Greg,

 

Two questions, please.

 

- Do both the levers move to the max in the sim or is the #1 throttle visually below the #2 ? 
- Did you set the sentitivity of both throttle axes to a linear curve in Flight Simulator ?

Yes, both throttles move visually. I did set to a linear curve. Both throttles are calibrated by the EFB also. It detects all movements. I started the CJR ready to taxi and now #1 engine does not even start. Hangs at 20%.

Both throttle levers in the sim are to the max but the engine #2 shows 100% while the engine #1 only shows 30%, right ?
I just want to check if the issue is harware or software.
Thank you.

Yes. engines idle at 21%. When I go to full power #1 go's to 30%. #2 go's to 100%. But today I tried and #1 engine is at 3% and seems like it's not getting fuel.

Can you check if no axis or button from any connected device is assigned to the mixture functions ?
If leaned, this could cause the engine to stop or not go to full power.
I know there is no mixture control in a jet aircraft, but this is due to how the internal systems of Flight Simulator work.

Dear Greg,

 

This must be the culprit indeed.
The default assignment for the Bravo throttle are to the mixture (as the quadrant is intended to be used with a piston engine)
If the mixture levers are not fully to the max, this could cause the problem you had.

Glad it is now solved.

Happy flyings.
