Basic Honeycomb Bravo throttle controls with the MSFS Aerosoft Twin Otter

 

This tutorial will demonstrate the basic setups to use the Bravo throttle with the Twin Otter.

 

We will cover the following points :
 

  • Throttle
  • Throttle reversers
  • Propeller pitch
  • Propeller feather
  • Fuel mixture
  • Flaps
  • Elevator trim
  • Alternate  throttle reversers

 

As usual, don’t rely on the default assignments that will appear when the Bravo is hooked up to the computer.
The Twin Otter is a dual-engine, variable pitch aircraft.
Not the standard default single engine fixed pitch most of the default assignment profiles 
are based on.
So, instead of altering, renaming, debugging automatic profiles, just start from scratch.


As a reminder, here is how to create a new profile in MSFS :

 

STEP 1 :
- Go to OPTIONS -> CONTROLS OPTIONS

- Select POWER MANAGEMENT -> THROTTLE

- Make the assignments as on the picture below
The reversers are triggered by the THROTTLE x DECREASE functions
NOTE : Do not check the REVERSE AXIS boxes

STEP 2 :

- Select POWER MANAGEMENT -> PROPELLER

- Make the assignments as on the picture below
The feather is  triggered by the TOGGLE PROPELLER REVERSE THRUST function

STEP 3 :

- Select POWER MANAGEMENT -> MIXTURE

- Make the assignments as on the picture below

STEP 4 :
- Select POWER FLIGHT CONTROL SURFACES -> CONTROL TRIMMING SURFACES

- Make the assignments in RED as on the picture below
- Select POWER FLIGHT CONTROL SURFACES -> SECONDARY CONTROL SURFACES
- Make the assignments in YELLOW as on the picture below

You are ready to fly !



Here is an alternate method to control the throttle reversers.
Pro’s :

It allows for fine reversers level modulation
Con’s :
Both engine #1 and #2 reversers are triggered together by the engine #1 lever.

 

Make the assignments as on the picture below.
NOTE : Do not assign the THROTTLE x DECREASE functions !
